If you are traveling to or even driving through Dubuque, stay here! I love hotels that have character, are clean & staffed with people who care about people. This hotel exceeded my expectations in all of those respects.
The building itself has modern amenities while losing nothing of it's original grandeur. The lobby features rich, dark woodwork, lovely furnishings & large windows looking out onto Main St. A balcony surrounds the lobby on 4 sides. Both levels provide plenty of seating areas. The pool, hot tub & fitness center were very clean.
I had a hot stone massage at the spa. The massage therapist was friendly & responsive to my needs. The spa itself was immaculate & tranquil. Soothing music in the waiting area. Locker room was well stocked with Aveda spa products.
My room was very comfortable & well decorated. I had a deluxe room, which featured a sitting area separate from the sleeping space. It was one big room with 3 huge windows. The sitting area had a pull-out sofa, chair & two tables. The pull out sofa was very nice to sit on & was unlike the run of the mill pull out sofas that most hotels have. The mattress was perfect for me- medium firmness with a plush top. The sheets were great- clean & soft. My room was handicapped accessible & therefore had a walk in shower. It was clean & had a hand held shower sprayer, which is always handy.
All of the staff I encountered had smiles on their faces & seemed genuinely concerned with the satisfaction of the guest. If the hotel continues to keep up their high standards, I am sure it'll become a destination in itself in Dubuque.
