My second trip to Dubuque and staying at this hotel. It is wonderful, the staff are terrific, warm and welcoming. You feel like you are going home to family! Never a room problem, it is quite and peaceful. I will not stay anywhere else in Dubuque, period. Highly recommend this facility to all travelers.

rude neighbors

Pros: Clean, and also a pleasant and helpful staff.
Cons: See above experience comment.
Some one in an adjacent room thought it would be OK to run, jump and pound at 11 O'clock at night. Because we were very close to the front desk, I would think they heard the racket as well as we did. This went on for 30 minutes. Either your hotel needs better sound barriers, or better sets of "ears" to hear this and put a stop to it. I realize there are many rude people in this world, but it sure would be nice if every now and then the ones bothering me would be stopped. I hope this was just an oversight, but I am starting to think that most business's are looking for the $$$, and not so much the comfort of their customer. I hope I am wrong. I am basically a fun loving person, but I think being rude is taking a bit too far.

Nice, Clean

Pros: Conveniently located across from the casino. Free rides to the casino.
Cons: Move the front desk to the lower floor.
Location: Casino and river walk. Very nice
The first thing you notice is that the check-in desk isn't on the same floor that you walk in to. Odd. There is a security guy right there to tell you to go to the 2nd floor for check-in. ???? OK. Otherwise, it was a clean and nice hotel.

Hotel was connect to a Casino

Cons: Nothing close
The hotel was nice but I thought it was over priced for a place that isn't even downtown Dubuque. There is a Casino, dog track connected, and restaurant connected to the hotel. Rooms are your standard hotel rooms nothing special.

Great stay

1930's hotel that has been totally refurburished and brought up to date but kept its classic charm and charater. Staff very helpfull. Even our small room was very comfortable with great bed, liens and towells, , walk in shower, robes, large refridgerator , new flat screen tv, coffe maker, cork screw, wine glasses, nice glasses for cocktails, view of the Mississppi river. Easy access to the casino and other sights and river walk along the Muddy Miss. Right in downtown but parking was easy and free. Nice pool and hot tub area also. Very nice stay.

the Hilton Garden was next door to the Greryhound Park and Casino, which was our first consideration. The hotel staff was friendly and explained our amenities. We received a great rate through the travel agency( and I had looked at the hotel in the past and passed due to cost). We had dinner at Houlihans, which is in the hotel and had good food. We will return, especially with the great rate and a full FREE breakfast...(I am a sucker for the free). They made custom omelets and had a nice buffet.

Had zero expectations for Dubuque, IA

Both my wife and I were pleasantly surprised with the facilities and the room itself. We figured because it was near the casino and dog track that it would be "rough". We enjoyed our stay with our two children and will stay again when we visit family in Dubuque. The track was closed for the season and we didn't visit the casino, but if you're into either, I'd recommend the hotel. The brunch in the morning was better than we expected and reasonable by hotel standards.

The hotel staff was very friendly and the hotel very clean. The room were spacious and beds were comfortable. The only problem with this hotel is you can hear everything, we could hear the person in the next room snoring and also the other rooms televison. We were on second floor and you could hear the people upstairs walking around the room. This was the first hotel I stayed at that you could hear that much noise. Room service was good but it took about 45 minutes for them to deliver. Not sure if I would stay here again because of the noise factor.

...and never even went to dogtrack

Picked this hotel on price and features, but apparently most people who stay here go to casino and dogtrack. If a couple, as we were, pick Life Great Getaway package for 2 comp breakfasts (otherwise $8 each). Breakfast a combo buffet and order up (biscuits/gravy with toasted buns excellent, but omelets made with EggBeaters). Lovely bike/walking path around island on which hotel is located. Go with king-size bed to get firmness controls.
