Early 1900s grandeur, restored—& an Al Capone connection

What it's like

Hotel Julien Dubuque Caroline's RestaurantSome rooms have views of Saint Raphael Cathedral (built in 1847 and modeled after Oxford's Magdalen College). East-facing rooms have views of the Mississippi. Guestrooms are decorated in cream and gold, with black accents and historic photographs and prints on the walls. The indoor pool on the lower level picks up the gold and black theme with stylish poolside chaises.

Independent spirit

A sophisticated restoration of an American heritage hotel

Small touches

Potosa Spa has a full-service menu and facilities to match the grandeur of the hotel: a fireplace room, side-by-side massage tables, oversize tubs for milk baths and other restorative soaks.

And more

A Mississippi River landmark since 1839, the original "Julien Hotel" was host to Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain. Rumor has it Al Capone used it as a hideout when things in Chicago got dicey.
