Lovely refurbished hotel in Downtown Dubuque! Many amenities including a spa and fabulous location. Quiet, very clean, and staff was super helpful and friendly. The only downside was the road construction in the area....

This grand dame is right on Main St. in a perfect location for walking downtown Dubuque.
Rooms are nicely appointed with windows you can actually open! Spacious bathrooms, big frig and the Keurig coffee maker was a nice surprise.

I really wanted to love this hotel! I traveled with 4 other women to celebrate a retirement. We stayed in the Capone Suite. For the $600 a night cost one would expect more. The room itself was dark. The silk flower arrangements were dusty and the large dining room table needed to be updated. The chairs/sofa uncomfortable. The bedrooms were updated and entirely up to standards. The sleeper sofa had dirty sheets and for the second night stay, housekeeping took the extra pillow and blanket for it. The lovely shower in the second bedroom never got hot water the second day. We asked for a tour of one of their standard rooms and the front desk acted very put out. The gentleman who finally gave us a tour was awesome! At check out, after mentioning our disappointment we were somewhat begrudgingly given "restaurant money" that needed to be used within 24 hours! We were on our way home so we delayed our departure to have a quick breakfast! The restaurant and staff is fabulous. We had eaten there twice before. Bottom line....I would have expected better. Perhaps a gift basket in the suite...Turn down service...comfortable, clean furniture....

Room Tip: I wouldn't waste my money on the suite. The standard rooms looked smaller than typical hotel ro...

The staff at the Hotel Julien is exceptionally well trained. They are polite, helpful and accommodating. The hotel itself is a nicely restored and updated historic hotel. The rooms are smaller than today's typical hotel room, but it was no problem for us. Everything was very clean and comfortable.

Nice hotel but pricey for the area. Convenient to downtown but things like treadmills not working are very annoying. Hotel rooms comfortable including beds. Clean rooms, nice staff, and quiet halls make the hotel a preferred choice in Dubuque.

The hotel rooms are nice but very small. The bathroom we had was pretty but had no bath tub. The pool was clean. Room service hours were very short. The parking lot is really far from the check in area
