This hotel is the nicest mix of vintage character and modern amenities. It goes so far beyond a cookie cutter chain for similar room rates. Beautiful building and room, convenient location, and wonderful staff. Even though our room overlooked the harbor/train area, it's the quietest room I've ever stayed in. The front desk staff were helpful and the bartenders in...

I attended Loras College in Dubuque and I had attended many functions at the hotel and stayed a few times. The last time I was there was about 20 years ago. On my most recent visit I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel obviously had been completely remodeled. The public areas were exquisitely appointed. The rooms were also very nice with...

I've stayed at several hotels in Dubuque however this hotel has the best romantic, regal, historic atmosphere. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Convenient parking and great hospitality. Would highly recommend.

Next time I'd like to stay longer, we were there just one night. I would like to try other things in the hotel like Potosa Spa and Caroline's restaurant. There are other restaurants and shops within walking distance also. We used the convenient car charger port in the parking lot since we have a gas electric hybrid car. Looking forward...

The room was dusty and shower room was dirty. We've stayed many times and have had no problems but this time was different. I hope if we stay next time the room will be ready and clean and ready for the customer.

I got a Living Social deal for my stay at the Hotel Julien and it was well worth every penny I paid! All of the hotel, spa and restaurant staff were wonderful and made this one of the most enjoyable hotel stays I've ever had! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful Hotel, well maintained and clean. The kids had a blast in the pool. The breakfast was delicious, however the wait staff was lacking. Overall we had a great stay and will stay again when in the area.

The hotel is beautiful, the amenities, the heritage of the hotel were great but I felt your check in staff were inattentive and almost rude when I asking for direction or when our key stopped working. I expected more.

We stayed here with our 2 teens last week. It's a beautiful old hotel. It was nice and quiet and everyone there was super nice to their guests. We ate breakfast each morning at Caroline's located in the lower level. Michelle was our server one morning and offered lots of good information for our trip.
