Visitors to our Dubuque, Iowa hotels should check out some of the historic and architecturally significant landmarks of this Midwestern town, located just west of the Mississippi.
Two unique structures here are the Fenelon Place Elevator and the Shot Tower, both listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Guests of our hotels in Dubuque can take the short ride up the short, steep funicular railway at Fenelon Place for fantastic views of downtown Dubuque as well as parts of Illinois and Wisconsin. Easily spotted at 120-feet tall, the Shot Tower is a local landmark built in 1856 that was used for the molding of lead shot.
Guests enjoying our Dubuque accommodations can jumpstart their day by sampling the brewing talents of the local baristas at the Aroma Coffee Bar, One Mean Bean, and Jitterz, just a few of the boutique coffeehouses found here. Also, be sure to enjoy some inventive Midwest cuisine at Pepper Sprout or the L. May Eatery. Afterwards, relax with cocktails or craft beer at one of the local watering holes, such as The Busted Lift or Lot One, or try Jumpers or the Dog House Lounge for more of a late night scene.
