I'll start off saying my wife loved the hotel. I had mixed thoughts because it seemed expensive for the accommodations we got. Although, we did stay over Labor Day weekend, which I'm sure is why the price was high, ~$200/nt.
We were in room #605 and overall it was small. Big bathroom, a mini-fridge (stocked) and a big desk in the room. There wasn't a dresser to unpack your clothes so we lived out of our bags for three days - I found this to be a disappointment given the price we were paying.
Generally speaking, the room was clean but there was a huge spider web in one of the windows and a large dead bug on the same window sill that was very dusty. I'd say the cleaning staff aren't tall enough to notice or take care of these things, but it was obvious to me when I opened the blinds to look out the window.
No issues with noisy neighbors, staff or elevators, etc. what so ever.
The pool and hot tub are nice. Hold your breath when walking to the pool because the hallway has a very strong chlorine smell. They need to find a way to vent that outside.
The location is the best aspect because you can easily walk to many restaurants, bars and the casino all within 5-10 minutes; even shorter if you drive.
The Holiday Inn is 2 blocks away. Consider staying there if they have a better rate. It's not worth paying a premium to stay at Hotel Julien because you don't really get anything extra for the money.
