My husband and I used to own a boat on the Mississippi in Dubuque, so we were familiar with the Canfield, but had never stayed there. We sold our boat about a year ago and were headed up to Madison, WI and wanted to stay in Dubuque in the downtown area on the way up. It was a Saturday night, and to our dismay, all the hotels just about anywhere were booked. So I called the Canfield and they had a room for us. It was under $90 for a night. We stayed on the 5th floor. The decor was definitely unique. Everything was pieced together and nothing really matched. But it was very clean and extremely quiet. We slept until almost 10:00 the next day, which is unheard of for us. But maybe that was the martinis we enjoyed in the Rainbow Lounge before bed! The lounge is like stepping back through a time portal as well, but the karaoke singers were good and the place was fun. We would definitely stay there again. It's probably $150 cheaper per night than any other room downtown. The Sunshine Diner across the street is a great place for breakfast too.
