We have stayed at the Hotel Julien several times in the recent past. Our stays have always been outstanding and relaxing. The "Vino Dock" at the hotel lounge is a wonderful addition - how fun and exceptional wine choices!

* We did not stay at the Hotel Julien though I wish we did! * This review is a big positive thumbs up for the Riverboat Lounge in the Hotel Julien. We stayed adjacent at the Holiday Inn (not bad, but not in the category of Hotel Julien). We ended up coming to the Riverboat Lounge for drinks. We're glad... More

Our short vacation in Dubuque was wonderful. Our stay at the Hotel Julien Dubuque was the high-point. It is a beautiful hotel with a great location. The food at Caroline's was good. The experience in the Potasa Spa was fabulous.

I don't feel we got a room comparable to the $200 per night we paid. I also was charged $2.18 for a post card! Most hotels furnish their guests with stationery and cards. You had to roll uphill in the bed. TV was another thing you had to be in bed to watch. Overall it was not a pleasant room... More

My wife and stayed here for the Memorial Day Weekend with high expectations. Unfortunately, the hype did not match the facility. Rooms were mediocre and not worth the high nightly cost. The staff was friendly but did not present or perform to the expectations as advertised for this Hotel. Caroline's and the Riverboat were terrible with food quality and services.... More

Great hotel for a weekend getaway! Elegant, clean and friendly! Within walking distance to restaurants, river walk and the aquarium. This is a historic hotel that has been updated with modern touches. The staff was very friendly and we had a good time at the bar/lounge located in the hotel.

Old regal hotel with recent face lift (6-7 years ago). Rooms are spacious and comfortable. We love to stay at the Hotel Julien,spending 1 day in Dubuque and 1 day in Galena. Our weekend coincides with Galena`s luminary evening held during the Christmas season.

The room was cold and I couldn't control the temp. The food from Caroline was good but check out your food before you eat it...I had something resembling mold on my bun so ate around it. Great location friendly staff

My wife an I stayed here on an anniversary trip. The room was impeccable. Very well located within walking distance to great hotels and nightlife. Would definitely recommend hotel Julien. Very well kept and also very quiet. Did not hear one train while in the room.
