Great hotel, centrally located to some of the best bars/restaurants in Dubuque. The check-in process was very smooth and the hotel staff were extremely helpful. Excellent bedrooms and very comfortable bed.

A basic requirement for me is to be able to control all elements of the AC/Heating system. Could not turn fan off w/o calling front desk. Loud and uncomfortable. TV was partially functional after having the front desk reset. Holliday Inn is just as well located, cheaper, and fully functional. Room was very good size if traveling with a family.

Unexpectedly lovely hotel. Meeting areas comfortable and plenty of restrooms. Food very good and varied at breakfast and lunch (we had dinners out about the town). Charming and comfortable seating for gathering to talk with others.

I had never been to Dubuque and wasn't sure what to expect. I was delighted by the location of the hotel, within walking distance of many good restaurants and shops. The hotel was very clean, the meeting rooms were very nice. Enjoyed Caroline's for lunch, excellent stay all around.

We stayed in this hotel years ago when it was a complete dump. It's now renovated and the place is beautiful. Didn't have a chance to see the bar or restaurant. Staff were very friendly. Beds were so comfortable. Only issue I had was the AC and heat: You couldn't turn it off so it was humming all night. It's...

I attended a conference at the Hotel Julien Dubuque. What a great facility! The meeting rooms were spacious with plenty of room between rows. The restrooms were very convenient and the food was absolutely delicious! My room was great with a separate seating area. The bathroom was very large and the staff was attentive to every need.
