MILWAUKEE – The ownership of the Iron Horse Hotel has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization, according to our partners at Milwaukee Business Journal.

The filing was filed Thursday in a U.S. bankruptcy court in the District of Delaware on behalf of Rider Hotel LLC.

Rider Hotel LLC, the owner of the Iron Horse Hotel, is seeking a solution with a lender. The hotel, its restaurants and event spaces will continue to operate as usual.

The bankruptcy filing lists Rider Hotel’s assets valued between $10 million and $50 million and includes the same range for its current liabilities, the Milwaukee Business Journal reports.

Kurt Carlson, lead attorney for the Chapter 11 filing, told the Milwaukee Business Journal on Thursday that the hospitality industry has been hit harder than any other during the COVID-19 pandemic.
