We pride ourselves at providing exceptional and memorable service. Below are real comments from recent wedding celebrations held at Hotel Julien Dubuque. We’re positive you’ll experience the very same on your special day with us.

 “Everyone was so pleasant and friendly.”

Our 1st daughter got married in 2021 and had her reception at Hotel Julien. It was so amazing that my 2nd daughter had her reception there in 2022! I can’t say enough about them! Nicole is so easy to work with, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. She truly is committed to the bride and groom and ensuring everything runs smoothly! The food was outstanding, the service was amazing! Everyone was so pleasant and friendly. We have to give a shout out to the staff. With over 250 guests, they were fast, efficient, and friendly! They all work very hard to ensure your special day is memorable. Thank you to all that helped that night! You are amazing! The stairway to the ballroom makes a beautiful backdrop for pictures, and makes a statement as you walk up to the ballroom! The whole 2nd floor outside the ballroom is space included for your reception. This gives guests a quieter place to chat if needed. And decorating the stairway and 2nd floor receiving area makes the place feel like your own. Their packages are competitively priced and customizable to fit your needs. I would highly recommend Hotel Julien for your special event. ~ Susan • July 2022

 “Everything went flawlessly.”

Do yourself a favor and book your wedding with the Hotel Julien! They were absolutely amazing every step of the way and the venue is gorgeous. Most of my guests also stayed with the hotel and had nothing but wonderful things to say about their stay. Nicole, the wedding coordinator is INCREDIBLE! She was so helpful, organized, and kind during the entire planning process. The staff listened to all of our concerns leading up to the day and everything went flawlessly. The food we served was also amazing. Many people even said that the steak that was served was one of the best they had ever had! Our catering captain, Joe, was also astounding! He was so friendly and attentive. I couldn’t pull myself off the dance floor, but he made sure to bring me anything I needed so that I didn’t have to. I cannot thank all of their team enough for creating such a special day! ~ Madeline • June 2021

“No worries all evening!”

We were thrilled with our experience of having our wedding reception at the Julien. Nicole was SO helpful during the planning process. She was very organized, reassuring, and patient with my many emails. She was also there to help out the day of and went above and beyond even searching the hotel for my comfy shoes when I was getting blisters. I cannot say enough good things about her and how professional she was! We chose the Julien because I didn’t want to have to worry about anything, and that was exactly how it went – no worries all evening! Our food (beef medallions and chicken cordon bleu) was wonderful and we got a lot of compliments on how tasty it was and how quickly it was served. Our stay that night was also amazing. We were upgraded to the Al Capone suite and it was beautiful and unlike any other hotel room, I’ve ever been in. Overall, I would recommend the Julien to anyone getting married. It was more than I could have ever imagined! ~Emily • July 2019
