Lovely historic hotel in downtown Dubuque. It is close to the destination city of Galena in Northern Illinois but enables you to get away from the tourist atmosphere there. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The only negative was the person at the front desk didn't know how to help us make a dinner reservation in town.

The location is very easy to get to and the hotel itself is very beautiful. There are a lot of restaurants and bars near the hotel, not a lot of shopping. Galena, Illinois is an easy 25 minute drive from the hotel for shopping. The rooms were nice and clean and good sized. The only minor drawback is the elevators...

If he has not had the pleasure of staying at the Julien Dubuque Hotel, yourself a great favour and kids this wonderfully retro yet Modern Property a try. We've stayed several times over the past for five years and have yet to be disappointed in any way. Fare, although prone to Natural turnover, remains well-trained friendly and competent.

Hotel Julien has an old world charm and is known for a frequent guest named Al Capone. They have elegant accommodations for formal weddings and events. Located downtown close to many bars and restaurants. Also nearby is the Diamond Jo casino (short walk). The quaint shops of Bluff St. are also close. Depending on the hotel room you could have...

This hotel is absolutely beautiful and full of history. The room was spacious and the inside of the hotel is gorgeous. It is located right downtown so it was easy to get to places. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

I was a little disappointed in the room. I had a windowless room which was apparently right over a party room where very loud music was played until 11:00 pm. Also, there was toothpaste on the wash rag that was tucked in the towel. I threw it on the floor and it was again tucked in the towel (the same...

The facility was clean and the staff friendly. The hotel was within walking distance of many shops and the casino. There were also cafes and coffee shops within walking distance. Had I not been there on business it would have been a nice place to just kick back and relax.

Great grand hotel! Comfortable room, great location. Stayed here for business. Hotel was perfect for meetings. The ballroom was spacious and accommodating. Loved the historical photos all over the hotel. My room was spacious, clean, comfortable. Walked to the Fenelon Place Elevator, just a few blocks from the hotel. Other stores, restaurants and bars within walking distance. Would stay here...

Good location in downtown Dubuque, friendly staff. Lounge is very nice and comfortable. Caroline's for dining is great. My complaints are that I used a QC times coupon so was prepaid. however, upon departure, I asked if there were any charges and was informed "no." Unfortunately, this was not the case as tax was not applied. This is the second...
