Really nice hotel. Clean, good restaurant. The amenities were solid. Close location to lots of activities. Not especially kid friendly but that wasn't the reason for our stay. Look forward to staying there in the future and would recommend.

I highly recommend this facility - especially for conventions. Food we were served was outstanding. Staff treated us with sincere concern for our comfort. The neighborhood was perfect - just wish we had more time to visit our surroundings.

We just spent 1 night at this very neatly, updated hotel for a convention. More than one convention and a wedding were happening, yet there were no problems for us. We would definitely stay here again! One tip: you can drive up at the rear of the building and park while registering rather than searching for curb parking.

This hotel has kept its unique character with modern updates which is not always easy. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable The desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food served during our event meals was expensive and disappointing.

Just returned from a great stay at the Hotel Julien. It has a great location that was close to food and entertainment. The staff was very nice and willing to help with anything. Robby at the front desk even gave us directions by phone multiple times. We will be back for sure!

For the life of me I can't figure out why this is the number 2 hotel in town. Granted, the package (lobby) is pretty, but once you open it and look closely you'll see it's all surface, fancy wrappings covering a multitude of problems. The desk staff was rude from the moment we approached the desk until the moment we...

This hotel was great. The rooms were clean, the accommodations were top notch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was greeted each morning and evening by several different people. Made you feel welcome. The hotel is charming to say the least.

This is an elegant hotel that is very well maintained. We stayed on the top floor with a view of the river and bridge. It was so fun to watch the boats and barges on the river! When we return, we will definitely stay here.

This is our favorite hotel in Dubuque. It's located downtown within walking distance of some great bars and restaurants and overlooks the Mississippi. It was renovated around 2010 so the decor is beautiful and clean. We mentioned our anniversary and that evening a lovely piece of chocolate fudge cake was delivered to our room.
