Stayed 3 nights in the middle of November. Grand Harbor has a terrific staff! Mr. Jordan at the front desk was always ready to assist and the General Manager Steve Geisz went out of his way to make our stay great! They have a very nice events center for meetings. Tony Romas was very convenient and had a delicious menu.

We just completed the 2014 Iowa State Snomobile Association Convention and Snow Show at Grand Harbor at Dubuque. The facility is beatiful, the prices were reasonable, and the service was excellent, but most importantly - the people of Grand Harbor made the organizers, committee, convention goers and visitors to the free Snow Show feel that the staff was truly happy...

It would be a great time for families, too, with the indoor water park-I... More

It was a great overall stay at Grand Harbor. The food at Tony Roma's was always phenomenal, the waterpark was a blast, and the staff was caring and helpful. The riverfront is the perfect location for such a resort and presented many opportunities and activities for us. Overall a wonderful stay!
