Fantastic accommodations! We loved it! We stayed in a King Suite with an amazing kitchen and bar area. Our bed was great and we slept very well. We enjoyed the work out room, pool, and hot tub. Caroline's has great food with great service!

Our Travel Zoo package at the Hotel Julien was fabulous. The hotel is beautiful, the staff friendly and accommodating, the amenities were great. Centered in the middle of historic downtown Dubuque, we had easy access to a variety of restaurants and activities. Highly recommend this package and the hotel.

Top notch as always, carolines and bar are great, super comfy beds. We have an annual ski trip and always stay at the Hotel Julien if we are able to get a reservation. Right in heart of everything walkable to many places.

Not as nice as previous visits. Inattentive workers at the front desk. Our room had an overwhelming air-freshener, cleaning product odor that lingered and was still extremely offensive the following morning. The falling plaster in the pool area was also unpleasant.

Beautiful historic hotel in downtown DBQ. Gorgeous Christmas tree in lobby was taken down the day after Christmas. That was too soon. No staff member stood out as loving their job. Christmas brunch was a nice option for a large family gathering.

The Hotel Julien is a well preserved and unique property. It is in the middle of Dubuque and very accessible to many fun activities in the area. The guest service is friendly and kind. Highly recommended.
