We went for the 4th of July weekend and at first tried to reserve in Galena, IL. After staying in Dubuque the first night and driving to Galena we were pleased to have had trouble finding a reservation and to have been lucky enough to stay in Dubuque. The hotel was wonderful, quiet, plenty of amenities, great pool, great fitness... More

Our 25th anniversary party was held at the Hotel Julien in 1980, as we lived in Dubuque from 1963 to 1987! We loved the new look of the hotel and the great restaurant! So much fun to walk up Main Street to 11th, then to the Fourth Street Elevator and back....still a great location for the hotel! A dance band... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Julien last weekend for our anniversary. Check-in was a smooth/quick process. Room was very nice, clean. Fridge in room, resturant Caroline's had great breakfast, brunch on Sunday. Quality food, moderate price. The hotel is downtown, right in the middle of several attractions, resturants and bars- all within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay... More

What started out as a fantastic stay turned into a horrible experience. Do not complain about the noise in the hotel, the front desk manager didn't want to be bothered. I saw other reviews about noise levels and the response is to contact the front desk. We did and wish we hadn't.

We stayed here on a Saturday night, as it was the only hotel left in Dubuque and surrounding areas with a room available. When I turned down the bedding there were two long, black hairs on the pillow. I thought it was gross, but figured maybe housekeeping shed a couple hairs while changing the bedding and let it go. I... More

Make this this your stop and layover for the beautiful downtown area of DBQ. Handy location and central to the business district. Staff and bar/restaurant excellent. My wife attended a recent business meeting at the Hotel Julien and could not believe how the changes have made this truly a first class facility.

The Hotel Julien has become our go to place for a weekend away. The hotel is lovely, the staff is wonderful, and we take advantage of Potosa Spa on each trip. My daughter and I are regulars but I try to bring sisters and nieces for their birthdays. It is nice to get away from the chaos of everyday life.... More

The spaciousness of our suite was excellent as was the cleanliness. Staff is always well trained, friendly and accomodating. Put this on your list as THE place to stay in Dubuque. Caroline Restaurant serves very good breakfasts. Did not have dinner there this trip, but that has been very good over the past couple of years.

We stayed for one night on a weekend family trip. This hotel is very nicely updated. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We stayed on the fifth floor in a room with one bed. Though smaller than your average hotel room, this one was well designed and very cozy. The room had a flat screen TV, a keurig coffee... More
