Now this is tempting…a getaway weekend in Dubuque from Travel Zoo


Travel zoo must have read my mind – or more likely my emails and blogposts because they’ve sent me a good weekend getaway deal offer for a place I’d like to go – and maybe you would too. See below

The Deal

Experience the charm of downtown Dubuque’s historic Old Main District and stay at one of its top hotels for more than 50% off regular rates. For $99 per night February-April, two people can indulge in upgraded suite accommodations at the Hotel Julien, which was voted the No. 1 hotel in Dubuque by TripAdvisor readers. This deal also includes $20 to spend at the on-site modern American restaurant.

For an added dose of luxury, a $199-per-night package boasts an overnight stay in a suite along with two signature massages at the hotel’s full-service Potosa Spa, and a $20 dining credit.

Select the Premier King Suite with an open living room and private bedroom, as well as a kitchen with granite countertops and full-size appliances. Or choose the Luxury Queen Suite with a private bedroom with two queen beds and a separate living room with sleeper sofa.

The Hotel Julien, established in the mid-1800s, has hosted the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain and Al Capone. It overlooks the Port of Dubuque on the Mississippi River and is within walking distance of an array of shops, restaurants and bars.

Other nearby attractions to explore include the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, the Diamond Jo Casino and the “Field of Dreams” movie site, a timely destination for an early spring getaway.
