Hotel Julien Dubuque to be Featured in Upcoming Episode of ABC’s Hit Romance Reality Series The Bachelor

(Feb. 9, 2015) – ABC’s The Bachelor will shine a spotlight on the beautiful city of Dubuque, Iowa during an upcoming episode that was filmed at Hotel Julien Dubuque.

The episode is scheduled to air Monday, February 16, 2015, at 8/7c on ABC.

“We are thrilled to be featured in such a popular series,” said Dwight Hopfauf, General Manager at Hotel Julien Dubuque. “The opportunity to showcase our elegant, historic property, which underwent a $34 million renovation to restore its 1915 grandeur and is now celebrating its 100th anniversary, is truly exciting.

With the support of his family and the state of Iowa rooting for him, Chris truly believes he can find the right woman to share a life with.  Follow Chris Soules’ search for his soul mate in the 19th edition of The Bachelor Mondays (8:00–10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
