We had another excellent stay at the Hotel Julien. We recommended it and brought friends with us. The room was perfect and our friends loved the place. Drinks in the hotel bar and on the outside deck made for a pleasant end to our evening. Going back for sure!

I chose Hotel Julien based on the positive reviews here and had fairly high expectations.Nevertheless, I was pleasantly surprised, both by the quality of the hotel and by all the things to see and do in and around Dubuque. The hotel is lovely; tastefully decorated, quiet, well-managed, and convenient. I was here with my 12 year old daughter and 7... More

We have traveled to elegant, upscale hotels in several areas throughout the country. Both the lobby and room at Hotel Julien were pretty and elegant. The room was spacious and mostly clean. We particularly enjoyed the large windows and views of Dubuque. We also enjoyed the historic touches of the hotel, including the old black and white pictures of Dubuque... More

When it said "historic" we were nervous. Sometimes that means old and tired looking. Not this place. It has been remodeled and while it still has historic charm, it has the latest in quiet air conditioning, soft beds, walk in showers, thick, soft towels, and a view of the city. The staff is very pleasant. Lovely!

Unfortunately zero stars was not an option. We stayed on our wedding night and payed for our photographers to stay as well. To say we are frustrated with this place is an understatement. The rooms were great, the front desk was friendly, but in the end we're out a few hundred extra dollars and have spent more aggravating time on... More

We visited Dubuque and stayed the weekend at this lovely restored historical building. We had a special Internet deal and either it was a really fantastic deal or we were unknowingly upgraded to a wonderful corner suite. The accomodstions were excellent with a great view of the river and Port Dubuque. The one downside was that not one staff member... More

Awesome hotel! The rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable and they have all the amenities you need! The staff was friendly and informative and very helpful... they called around to multiple restaurants to find someone who served dinner past 9pm which is hard to find! Highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

This hotel has had an extraordinary renovation that could make it a great luxury hotel. Unfortunately it was our experience that the staff and management are not prepared to be something other than a mid-range hotel. Check-in was smooth. Our King Deluxe room on the fifth floor was quite large with a nice sitting area. Our room was clean but... More
