Stayed last October for a couple of nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The room/bed is clean and comfortable. The hotel has a nice restaurant for breakfast- but the service in the restaurant could've been better. Front desk staff is super helpful and friendly and the cucumber water in the lobby is super refreshing and yummy! The location... More

A revitalized old hotel in downtown Dubuque but with sky bridge over to the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium, plus a new casino and convention center make this a very nice place. I had a two room suite, and the conference I attended even hosted events at the Hotel Julien.

Historic Hotel Julien Dubuque has the old charm while very well kept, clean and friendly. We had a nice suite with views of mighty Mississippi river, Ice Harbor and many nearby attractions that are all in walkable distance from the hotel. Other places like Arboretum and Mines of Spain can be reached in 15-20 min by the car. We also... More

Hotel Julien is very easy to get to from the Chicago area. The property is very impressive as you arrive and does not disappoint once you enter. The lobby is GRAND!!! and impressive. The front desk greeters were very friendly and checked me in very quickly with a smile. The room was beautiful, clean and very welcoming. You can tell... More

Hotel Julien is well-located, clean, lovely, comfortable, environmentally friendly ... and I really would love to give this hotel 5 stars. What's holding me back is the fact that we could hear conversations coming from the room next door. In fact, we could even listen to the Emmy awards show without turning on our own TV. The problem, I think,... More

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

Dear amh719, The rules governing Travelzoo vouchers are quite specific. Your request to use the vouchers for room types that you did not purchase them for was asking us to violate our contract that we have established with Travelzoo; we will not diminish our integrity to do this. The numerous communications asking us to bend the rules because "We've already... More
