The Iron Horse Hotel
IN THE FAMILY
Leo, Juan and Stalin are three of the five Lopez brothers who have worked at The Iron Horse Hotel since its inception. Born in Guayquil, Ecuador, the brothers came to Milwaukee 19 years ago and still find time to visit their mother, father, sister and two brothers back in Ecuador.
The brothers split their time among valet duties, the engineering department, housekeeping and so much more. If there’s a job to be done, they are the go-to trio.
Leo, Juan and Stalin are a regular workout fixture at Xperience Fitness in Milwaukee, and cheer on the Packers every Sunday.
IN THEIR WORDS
“I have worked a lot of jobs, but none like this,” says Stalin. “Tim Dixon gave us an opportunity to learn and experience new trades, and we’re very appreciative.”
HOTELIERS IN THE MAKING
The Lopez brothers bring a positive energy to work every day, and over the years have built relationships with the staff members, who often jokingly refer to the hotel as “The Lopez Brothers Hotel.”
