Our first night in Dubuque, I convinced Jim we needed to stay in a hotel since I NEED sleep after travelling and there were extras staying at his parents house. Its always loud anyway, so I was hoping this would give us the opportunity to sleep in a bit and be more rested for the annual party on Sunday.
When we got there, we were more than pleasantly surprised. It was a really old hotel that had been totally redone. It is beautiful now. Hardwood doors, tall comfy beds, huge bathrooms. Very nice. Plus, the TV had cable so the kids were excited.
There was also an icemaker in the hallway. Its been years since we have seen one. Guess we have been staying in Australia or overseas too much!
We stopped in at the Al Capone suite, which Jim’s cousin and his wife had rented for the weekend (also their 5 year anniversary). WHOA! You could almost live in there and there was the safe that Al Capone supposedly used to keep his ‘goods’ when he came to Dubuque.
How cool is that?
