Testimonials

We pride ourselves at providing exceptional and memorable service. Below are comments from recent events held at Hotel Julien Dubuque. We’re positive you’ll experience the very same throughout your planning process and on the day of your special event.

“I’ve been working with the Hotel Julien for the past 6 years with the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival (JDIFF) as the Executive Director.  If there was a rating of 1 – 100, I’d give them 300!  The staff is amazing, communicative and willing to do anything to make all our events successful.  Not only is the hotel our JDIFF headquarters during the week long festival, but also hosts many of our yearly events, as well as our fundraising event in February.   I can always count on the Hotel Julien to meet all our needs and even go that extra mile to make things even better.  Down to the General Manager allowing his staff to wear the JDIFF souvenir t-shirts during the festival week in support of the event.  Please consider using the Hotel Julien for events, fundraisers, weddings or for just a place to get away. You will NOT be disappointed”.  – Susan Gorrell, Executive Director of the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival.


“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Hotel Julien Dubuque! Our nonprofit organization hosts an annual auction and tasting event for nearly 300 people each fall. The Hotel Julien allows our special event to maintain a reputation of excellence and achieve fundraising goals year after year by providing an incredible guest experience. The staff at Hotel Julien Dubuque are always eager to assist in every step of the planning process. From start to finish, I know we are in good hands! The hotel staff and management team are incredibly hospitable, organized, professional, and are fabulous at keeping the line of communication open throughout the planning process. Event managers and catering staff are great at accommodating all of our event requests and service needs, even when last minute event or logistical changes need to be made. The Hotel Julien is a beautiful and historic venue with friendly and experienced staff. I highly recommend partnering with Hotel Julien Dubuque for any event. You and your guests will not be disappointed!”  – Kaley Rigdon, Development Manager of March of Dimes Nebraska/Iowa


“The Fountain of Youth chose the Hotel Julien as the venue for our Transforming the Future event, which is our largest fundraiser held annually. The Hotel Julien is an excellent choice for anyone considering hosting an event.  The event manager is always prompt and attentive.  The entire team managed our event with the utmost professionalism and totally exceeded our expectations.  From the planning, the décor of the room and culinary excellence, it was all beyond exceptional.  Our board of directors was very impressed and we received an abundance of compliments from our attendees through out the evening.  We are thankful to have worked with the Hotel Julien and plan to continue our relationship for years to come.”  – Kim Budde
