We recommend the Holiday Inn which is just over one mile from Loras College. Mention that you are attending the Dubuque Library Conference for a special rate of $76 plus tax. Call 563-556-2000. To get the special price, ask the call to stay at the front desk - they will honor the reduced rate but reservations won't after March 8th. While at the Holiday Inn, you will be near downtown shopping. Additional information about visiting Dubuque is also available. Further hotel options are available from the Chamber of Commerce
