This venue is absolutely gorgeous. They really know how to pull off a wedding. Allie was great to work with. I am a huge foodie, while Julien's menu looked delicious, I wanted something a little more fall themed. I suggested a chicken bruschetta and pork with apple instead of cranberry. Allie sent those suggestions to the chef and they came up with chicken topped with smoked mozzarella caprese and Dijon crusted pork with apply chutney. They were absolutely delicious and our guests were very excited to get their meals. We also wanted flavored water and Julien happily obliged. Lastly, we wanted a late night food. I was sick of having pizza for a late night snack, so I suggested grilled cheese: Gouda with caramalized onions and cheddar with bacon. They were a hit! Everything Allie and the Julien staff did for us was so amazing and made our perfect day run so smoothly. Thank you so much, it was truly the best day of our lives!

Everything was beautiful! Allie, the wedding coordinator, was so helpful and responsive. She also was very flexible in what I wanted! Being an out of town bride, she made everything easy and the end result was perfect!

I would only recommend this venue to a friend based on the location, the ease of having a hotel at the same location as your reception. We had a poor experience, which probably doesn't happen all the time. A beverage cart attendant for another wedding ruined our first look pictures by walking by (so close he touched us) during the moment.. They were also very rude (front desk) to several of my guests when checking in. My nails/toes had to be redone at the salon (wouldn't recommend for a pedicure or manicure!) twice because they were chipping before I even left the salon. The dance floor was sticky when setting up the reception, but then they cleaned it, which felt more like a wax, and several guests slipped and fell at the reception. The general manager was very condescending when speaking to me about these issues, and there was no tone of remorse in his voice at all. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms were nice. And they DID offer to take care of our next stay and spa to make up for the infractions.. Just sad we had to go through that at all. Their customer service could use a makeover.

We loved the Hotel Julien! This is where I had dreamed of having my wedding reception for many years as it has beautiful atmosphere. When it came time to choose a reception, the Julien had the most bang for our buck! Andrea was great to work worth and was always willing to give me any advice or answer any questions I had. She was also very flexible and worked with me so our reception turned out exactly how I wanted! We received so many compliments on our venue from our wedding guests and I wouldn't change a thing!

We held our wedding reception at Hotel Julien Dubuque, and everything seemed perfect to us. We had 288 guests, with many of those guests traveling from out-of-town, so we had approx. 46 rooms booked, and I only heard great things from all of the overnight guests that we talked to the next morning at the breakfast we had catered by Caroline's in a private room just off the lobby.

Andrea was our wedding coordinator, and she took care of everything from the very beginning, from lining up our room blocks with the hotel; setting up our food tasting; helping us choose our menu for the plated dinner, along with the cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and food we had later toward the end of the evening while guests were dancing and drinking; picking linens, some of the decorations; lining up the staff to put the overnight guests' gift bags in the room before they checked in; and ordered the catered private breakfast in the morning. Anything we needed, we only had to ask Andrea, and she would take care of it for us.

And the food was delicious; we had bacon-wrapped sirloin, chicken beurre blanc, vegetarian plate, and chicken fingers (for the children), as our selections, and we only heard positive comments about the food from everyone. And everything came out pretty fast, too, so it didn't seem like people had to wait while others were eating, like I've experienced a lot at other wedding receptions.

We had great service from everyone at Hotel Julien Dubuque, and it seemed like our guests felt the same way. We could not have asked for a better experience for our wedding, and would not have wanted it any other place!

We held our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception in the grande ballroom at the Julien. Excellent staff and service. Food was mediocre. Capone suite is convenient for bridal party to get ready but is overpriced. Trains at night can be bothersome if you stay in this suite. Get a diamond Jo club card from the casino and save a bundle on hotel rooms.
