I enjoyed everything about this hotel. It was very clean. The staff was very nice and helpful! The location was also great, within walking distance to restaurants and bars. Vinney's restaurant was excellent and very reasonable on price. I will definitely stay at Hotel Julien on my next visit, business or personal trip.

I was quoted a special rate for a wedding over the phone and booked two nights. At no point during the conversation was it disclosed to me that the rate was only for one of the two nights and that the other night would be charged for $70 more. If I had been given this information I would not have... More

Get your women organized as to what spa treatment each wants and make your reservations early. Then plan your activities around that. There are many restaurants to choose from and Caroline's is a good one to start with. Go to the river walk to enjoy the scenery. Take a walk around downtown and see the architecture. You'll have loads of... More

Stayed here for a wedding in town. The rooms were furnished nicely and very clean. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. The parking lot looked packed, but I never had trouble finding a spot. Good stuff

We started on Lake Michigan and drove across the state and ended up here. They were the only Hotel with a room and I'm glad I paid the $240 for the night. Pricey because they fill up every weekend with a wedding or two. We stayed in a nice room overlooking the street (not recommended if you want to sleep... More

The hotel is beautiful and it has lots of amenities. The location is nice too. The hotel is very pricey though and I'm not sure if it's necessarily always worth the price. It's a fun splurge if you have the money or really love the history and pretty building. Most of the staff is friendly and helpful.

Our suite was very clean and relaxing. We ate at the hotel Restaurant and the staff were very friendly and the selections were good. Breakfast was very good and filling also. The lobby was awesome with original wood railings and great antiques. We even discovered that Al Capone had a suite set up there with a built in safe, we... More

My favorite part about staying at Hotel Julien was the building itself is very beautiful and the view is gorgeous. I appreciated the history of the building and the location is great. An easy walk to several good restaurants and attractions.
