We love the Julien, especially Caroline's Restaurant - great food, excellent service (thank you Sherry), reasonable prices. Very comfortable rooms, great service, friendly helpful staff. They still need to repair the shaky elevator.

On a previous trip to Dubuque, I'd noticed the Hotel Julien, stopped, & checked out the property - I was hooked, I had to stay there on a future trip! The stay I'm reviewing was my second, but last, stay there. The hotel itself is wonderful - great location, nice restaurant, rooms clean and updated - the owners have done... More

Have stayed here before. Fun to stay at such a beautiful historical place. Always enjoy a great breakfast the next morning at Caroline's. Close to River Museum, restaurants and cable car businesses. Nice weekend get away.

Wonderful in every way! Fantastic place to stay in an interesting, historic, beautiful city. Friendly and helpful staff at all times. The Christmas decorations put us in the Christmas spirit. This is the best place to stay on the Mississippi.

My stay here was a shorty overnight stay on the way home from a cross- country trip. My travel companion and I decided to stay here because we found a great rate online, and I had wanted to stay at the hotel for quite some time. I wish we would have had more time to enjoy the hotel! The property... More

My colleagues and I were in town for business. While we didn't originally plan to stay at the hotel, we had meetings there so moved our accommodations. I am so glad we did! The room was comfortable, the service very friendly, and we enjoyed gathering in The Riverboat a couple of nights for some music. The staff was even gracious... More

Hotel has old style charm. Beds are comfortable. Stayed here for New Year's Eve as they were running a great package deal. Caroline's restaurant had a few issues. Food wasn't cooked properly, steaks under cooked as was the salmon. After manager was made aware, she did provide a gift certificate to our friends for a return visit. Rude bartender, had... More

I had read all the reviews and was really anxious to stay at this hotel. Upon arrival, I was disappointed in the upkeep of the hotel. Our room was small and there wasn't a closet to hang our winter coats. The Riverboat Lounge was great and we especially enjoyed our bartenders, Sam and Lindsey.

This Hotel has old world charm with modern accents. Some old buildings have old building smell, not the case here. Beautiful architecture, very clean, AND comfortable bed with crispy sheets. I was only there for one night, but want to take my husband for a mini vacation to enjoy the Spa and other amenities this hotel offers.

We stayed in the Al Capone suite for two nights in January to attend a wedding. Every member of the staff we interacted with was friendly and helpful. Very accommodating with special requests. Beautiful rooms.
