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.

“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

“Our daughter’s fairytale wedding”

I cannot say enough about the associates and the decor. It is simply the most beautiful hotel in Dubuque! I can honestly say, I think this is the only place to have a classy and elegant wedding. Hands down! Food that fed 400 people was hot and simply wonderful! Kudos. ~Laura  • September 2014

“Great Dubuque Venue!”

We absolutely loved having our wedding at the Hotel Julien Dubuque! We had our ceremony in the same room as our reception and the flip they did during cocktail hour was amazing. They are so good at what they do and the service is amazing. The food was absolutely delicious and I would recommend it to anyone. Andrea, the wedding coordinator, was very helpful and prompt in replying to emails and phone calls. We had 200 guests and I thought we got a great price for the number of people. • October 2014

“Never wanted it to end”

I am just now coming down off of the high that was April’s wedding weekend. It was just such a beautiful wedding and reception and we never wanted it to end. You probably hear this all the time but I hope you and the whole staff know how much we appreciated everything you did for us. The overnight guests loved the gift bags (already in their rooms upon arrival) and the catered breakfast in the morning. And everyone loved the snacks toward the end of the night, as well. Just wanted to say thanks again for everything! ~Lori • April 2014
