This beautifully restored historical landmark hotel is not to be missed. Wonderful staff, excellent restaurant. The architecture and furnishings are fabulous. It's like stepping back in time, but with all the modern conveniences. I'll be going back!

Hotel is beautiful, rooms are spacious. Staff was less than helpful. Our room was never cleaned, the check in person seemed preoccupied and the spa staff showed no concern for injury received which caused cancellation.

Great staff...very friendly! Fantastic amenities! Everything you could want...and more!! As soon as we walked into the lobby it made us feel like we'd gone back in time with the Old World charm it conveyed. We would have spent hours "listening" to the stories that this historic building could tell. Our whirlpool suite was incredible! We'll absolutely be back!!

Not worth the disappointment. Hotel had dirty front sliding glass doors... Wanted to have dinner at Carolines but the young man told us it would be quite a long wait for dinner since they were understaffed for the evening. This was one of the worst Hotel experiences We have ever had! Stay one hour away in Davenport. Hotel Blackhawk Autograph...

This hotel is beautiful. The location to all the things I wanted to do in Dubuque was perfect. Caroline's had great food and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The place is so charming and even tho we didn't use the spa, I will on my next visit.

What a unique, lovely place. The charm is old style but the furnishings didn't seem old at all. It is beautifully maintained. Caroline's is fantastic; we will be back. Go on a beautiful summer day -- you won't regret it.

Generally very good at this hotel. Stayed many times in the past and this is first time I cannot give a positive review. Spa was great, Caroline's was good, but room was loud at night and TV was not working properly.

We attended a family wedding. The reception was held at the hotel and we chose to spend the night. Everything was lovely. The food at the reception was good and the wait staff was efficient and friendly.

Attended a wedding in Dubuque and this was the wedding hotel. It is historic, elegant and comfortable. Nice room with a view of downtown and the river. Good service and food. I would stay here again and recommend it.
