I stayed at the Julien Dubuque the weekend before Christmas. I made my reservations on the hotel website, and I got an excellent deal on a jacuzzi king room. I arrived a bit earlier than the 3pm check-in time, but I was quickly dispatched to my room after a call to housekeeping. The room was very spacious, and the jacuzzi looked very inviting. The room was nicely appointed and very comfortable.
My stay was very quiet and relaxing. The jacuzzi tub was huge, and I was never bothered when I had the Do Not Distub sign on the door. I accomplished all that I needed to due to the comfortable atmosphere of the Julien.

Room Tip: King jacuzzi room 810 was a bright corner room

Dear LibraryLynn,

Thank you for sharing of your experience. Glad to read of your relaxing stay in one of the corner jacuzzi rooms; these are often sold out, as guests "escape" with the expanded space and relaxing atmosphere.

Hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,

Team Hotel Julien Dubuque

We stayed at this beautiful renovated hotel for our 45th wedding anniversary. The staff was very friendly. We ate at Timmerman's and L. Mays. We went to the Dubuque Symphony for the Christmas program with Sara Ellis-it was wonderful. Loved seeing sights such as shot tower and Fenelon elevator. Went through the Missippi River Museum and Aquarium. Great trip to Dubuque.

We stayed at Hotel Julien for a wedding reception. The room was big and beautiful and we had a great view of the river and bridge. The main entrance was very elegant, we took lots of pics by the Xmas tree during the reception. There is a fun bar right next to the reception hall as well. All around great time had by all. I would love to stay at this hotel again in the summer so we can wander around town when it's warm.

My wife and I spent a night at the Julien. We had room 702 which is a corner suite. It was really special with views of the river. It had a nice sitting room with couch, chair, bar area and flat screen tv. The bedroom had a flat tv and chair. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a stand up shower and was very large. The hotel has a great restaurant and a nice pool area. We had the pool to our self this Sunday evening. The water was a great temperature. We will come again.

The Julien is an old hotel that has kept itself refreshed in a pleasant traditional style. I found the desk staff to be both very friendly and efficient. The room was clean and reasonable in price. Parking is located at the rear of the site with a handy back enterence that allows one stop parking and not the in and out turn around hassle found in many big city hotels.

I purchased a "Suite Deal" at this hotel in downtown Dubuque through TravelZoo. The $99.00 special included a king or two Queen size two room suite and also a $20.00 food voucher at Carolines Restaurant in the hotel. The room was beautifully appointed, the bathroom was huge and obviously very newly remodeled. We had a corner suite, so noise was not a problem as we were really tucked away in our corner of the Hotel. The service staff was knowledgeable and extremely helpful with dinner suggestions. I feel that I received a very good value for my money and would love to come back here again (when the weather is a tad warmer!!!).
