You won't be disappointed in this quaint hotel. Stay here instead of the usual chain hotels! Came to Dubuque for business but will definitely be back for fun. Great location near shopping, dining, and attractions.

I really enjoyed staying at this wonderful hotel. The front desk had friendly and helpful young staff. even though the pace looked stuffy it was very casual. My room was up high -- but the "view" was not great. Not sure if there is anything to "see " in Dubuque. I did not use the spa or pool but I...

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Julien this past weekend for a babymoon. Overall it was enjoyable. Room was comfortable and the building is a beautiful historic hotel in Dubuque.

The hotel is very nice, clean and comfortable. The majority of the staff are immature and unwelcoming that we had contact with during our 1 night stay. Wouldn't go back for that treatment again. It was not very becoming for such a grand old hotel.

Six friends met from three different states in this quiet, quaint, luxurious hotel. I had stayed at a 5-star Marriott hotel two weeks prior to my stay at the Julien and found the Julien to be far more attentive to our needs, comfortable, and well-appointed. For those who prefer carefully restored older hotels, this place cant be beat. Thick towels,...

My SO and I stayed here recently. Overall, a very good experience. Staff was friendly, environment was inviting. I had a special rate from the QC Times. For full price, I do not believe that Dubuque can warrant such a single night room rate. Very nicely done entry way to the hotel. It is not a large, ie many rooms,...

Great hotel. You may have to follow up to receive final bill for incidental charges after your stay. They were supposed to email after my departure, but I had to call again to remind them to email my bill.
