Great Dubuque Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 10, 2010

When we arrived in Dubuque, we were able to find the Hotel Julien immediately. It's the tallest building in the city with a big sign on it. Our room was gorgeous--classy, clean and comfortable--with a shower to die for. The Hotel is right on Main Street, in the middle of everything, and our room overlooked the Mississippi River. We didn't even have to leave the Hotel to eat. The Hotel restaurant's feature that evening was duck and scallops. They were perfectly prepared--absolutely fantastic. Everything was so nice that we hated to leave.

Unique Quality: Great view of the city and the Mississippi River, gorgeous rooms, quallity linens and a fabulous restaurant make this Hotel a wonderful stop.

Directions: Downtown, Main Street, overlooking the Mississippi River

Karen and I stayed at Julien Inn for four nights in August, 2006, when I came to Dubuque for a Book Fair. We felt it was a very good choice. reasonably priced, and located downtown within walking distance of many of the city's attractions.

There has been a hotel here at the corner pf 2nd & Main Street in Dubuque since 1839, making it the oldest hotel in the state. The original structure, just four stories high, was the first building visible to travelers entering Dubuque from across the Mississippi. The hotel, which has been rebuilt and remodeled several times, is named for Julien Dubuque, a Canadian fur trapper who was the first non-native settler in Iowa.

Among the rich and famous who have stayed here are Abraham Lincoln , Ulysses S. Grant, Mark Twain and William "Buffalo Bill" Cody. During the prohibition era, the notorious gangster Al Capone owned the hotel.

In 1962, the Julien Hotel was purchased by the current ownership and after extensive remodeling, was re-opened as the present-day Julien Inn.

We had a small but comfortable room with a view of the Mississippi River. The hotel also has a good restaurant, and is within there are other good restaurants nearby.
