Top notch as always, carolines and bar are great, super comfy beds. We have an annual ski trip and always stay at the Hotel Julien if we are able to get a reservation. Right in heart of everything walkable to many places.

Not as nice as previous visits. Inattentive workers at the front desk. Our room had an overwhelming air-freshener, cleaning product odor that lingered and was still extremely offensive the following morning. The falling plaster in the pool area was also unpleasant.

Beautiful historic hotel in downtown DBQ. Gorgeous Christmas tree in lobby was taken down the day after Christmas. That was too soon. No staff member stood out as loving their job. Christmas brunch was a nice option for a large family gathering.

The Hotel Julien is a well preserved and unique property. It is in the middle of Dubuque and very accessible to many fun activities in the area. The guest service is friendly and kind. Highly recommended.

We requested a "high-up" room with a view of the river for a one-night stay. We LOVED our room on the eighth floor! The view was excellent and the bathroom was spacious. The fan was quiet and worked! (Most hotel fans are noisy and do not work.) The restaurant food was surprisingly inexpensive and tasty. The restaurant service was excellent!...

Excellent staff and room but restaurant is NOT recomnended.Interesting thos is the 3rd rwview Ive been asked to do. Hotel has photo of large whirlpool in room. Only ONE Room has this feature. Make sure you ask for hot coffee if thats what you order as mine was stone cold due to me not specifying hot coffee. My mistake.

Visited Dubuque/Galena area for a couples getaway and chose to stay in Dubuque because of price. Hotel Julien was not only a great deal, but had historic charm, combined with modern amenities like wifi, indoor pool and workout facility. Definitely recommend!

We did not get the room we requested, but we probably got a better room/suite. We asked for the 5th floor in the same area we stayed 33 years earlier. We were in put in a suite on the 7th instead. Nice view. We didn't need the well equipped kitchen but was glad to know it's available if we travel...
