This was my third stay at the Julien, with my husband for Valnetine's/Wedding Anniversary. We return to the Julien because we love the décor and charm. The hotel is conveniently located in the Old Main area of town, with lots of little shops and restaurants nearby, as well as the Mississippi River Museum and Daimond Joe's Casino. Our room had...

Please improve on attention to details for further guests. Things weren't consistent and simple requests weren't always granted. The rooms themselves were beautiful. The location was great. Staff wasn't always knowledgeable with questions asked :(

Very nice hotel. The bed was fabulous and the pool and hot tub were nice too. Such a nice change to have a well kept historic hotel rather than one of the "cookie cutter" ones! I definitely recommend to anyone.

Overall a good property in a good location. Close to the casino. Enjoyed the staff and amenities. The parking situation is poor. Guests have no parking privilages over locals who are patronizing other bars and restaurants.

Not very well coordinated. Check in was delayed, staff was unaware of package details. Restroom was not the cleanest and unit heater didn't work which made for a cold exit from shower. Overall stay was okay and didn't exceed expectations.

The staff were all very accommodating and friendly from the time we checked in until the time we checked out during our 2 night stay! This is a beautiful hotel filled with elegance & class from the popcorn & chocolates at check in to the well-kept Suites, entertaining lounge and awesome food at Carolines!

Beautiful and friendly hotel! Stayed for 2 days for my husbands birthday. We didn't realize there was so much to do in the downtown area. Great location with all sorts to do within walking distance. We will definitely be back!

I've stayed at the Drake in Chicago and the Parker House in Boston and the Hotel Julien stands tall against these larger, more famous historic relatives. Rooms were comfortable, spacious and had all the modern amenities. And the bathroom was very fresh and stylish with a beautiful new shower. The Riverboat Lounge is a great place to wind down with...

People kept telling us we needed to try this hotel so we did and were not disappointed. Our room was nice, clean, and roomy. There were some glitches....the first day there, housekeeping collected our used towels but didn't make our beds or empty any of the trashcans. The second day they left only shampoo bottles but at least the beds...
