I enjoy all of their services, but probably what I love most is the relaxation room. The chairs are insanely comfortable! The spa music, warm fireplace, hot tea, and smell of lavender make this heavenly!

My husband and I were staying the night at Hotel Julien when I decided I wanted a massage. I called down to the spa and they were very helpful and worked me in for a massage for the next morning. I'm sure your'e thinking- well that's their job. True, but there was no attitude or annoyance that I have gotten... More

It was relaxing. It was a treat for my fiancée and me for the afternoon. The waiting room was nice w fireplace and soothing music. The massage overall was good. My masseuse was very good and took her time on the places I asked her to focus on. My fiancée said his was too rough and seemed in a hurry... More

We enjoyed a couples massage here and it was one of the better massages I've had. Nice locker rooms with everything you need, relaxing shower and comfy robe. The relaxation room before the massage was nice. We were not in that room long. You can enjoy some flavored water and granola. The prices seemed pretty consistent with what you receive... More

Tried most of the services and enjoyed them all. The Spa has super staff so we never select. They all have their special talents. Whatever you are looking for they provide with professionalism. It can be totally quiet and relaxing. I myself have gotten to know them so really enjoy the visit during my service. It's just the right size... More

Came to Dubuque with couple friends who enjoy spa vacations on a semi regular basis. They both said that this was a wonderful spa. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience it is a MUST go!

The spa is tucked away downstairs of the hotel. I was greeted and quickly and efficiently taken care of so I could begin by waiting in the relaxation room all snuggled in my comfy robe. I had a massage and the lady doing it took her time to understand my trouble spots and work them,out. Afterwards, she took the time... More

I've had a number of pedicures here and the experience is extremely soothing. Great atmosphere and you can use the pool if you use the spa services! Not sure you still can, but one time there my friend and I ordered lunch and wine while we had our toes done. My husband had one just yesterday!
