We recently went to Dubuque for a weekend getaway. I researched on-line hotels in the area and was intrigued by the reviews of the Hotel Julien. The hotel had recently undergone a $30 million dollar renovation and I must say they did an excellent job.
The facade of the hotel is stately and the off street parking lot made it easy to take our time unloading the kids and luggage without dodging traffic. Once inside we were greeted by a nice desk clerk that had us registered and on our way in a flash.
The lobby was beautiful and the staircase to the 2nd floor was equally splendid. The upper level is completely open to the 1st floor and had numerous seating areas for our family to sit and relax.
Our room was decent sized for an executive class accomodation with 2 queen beds, flat screen TV, mini frig, and wonderful bathroom with a large glass shower. All of the appointments in the room were beautifully coordinated and made the place look great.
Of course the kids wanted to hit the pool so off we went. Its located on the bottom floor right next to the fitness center. There was also a nice sized whirlpool to relax in while the kids swam around. There is an outdoor patio right thru the glass doors from the pool but since its winter here in the midwest we didn't venture out.
We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back several more times.
