    Steiner/Lansing Wedding

    My husband and I made the right decision when we decided on the Best Western as our reception hall. Diana Schulz, Sales Director for the Best Western, made my husband and I feel so confident that our vision would be carried out for our reception. She was so professional and even helped us plan our second wedding reception due to COVID 19. Diana was so accommodating and made us, my family and friends feel so welcome. The vision we had for our reception happened and was absolutely beautiful! Many of our wedding guests complimented us on our food selection there and how clean the hotel was. Our family members and friends had rooms at the Best Western and they enjoyed their stay, and also enjoyed taking advantage of the new pool and deck area. Tim, head of
    maintenance for the Best Western, was also so professional and helped set up and answer any additional questions we had. He made us feel very welcome.
    Overall, I highly recommend the Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel & Conference Center for any occasion!

    Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel & Conference Center's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words for our team. We are so happy you were able to have your special day and it was our pleasure to make sure everything went smoothly. We wish you both the best and thank you again for choosing the Best Western for your reception.

    Great Place!

    Diana was fabulous to work with! She made sure everything was ready for us! The size of the location was perfect the the amount of guests we had.

    Kammes Wedding

    My husband and I were originally supposed to have our wedding reception in Galena, IL. However with COVID, Illinois was not letting up on restrictions. After emailing several places in Dubuque to see if any venues had cancellations or openings, Diana, The Sales Director, at Best Western emailed us back super quickly and let us know they did have a cancellation and that our date was open! Diana and the entire Best Western staff were so helpful through the entire process and for being a last minute booking for a wedding reception, you would not have even known we had to switch locations! They worked with us SO well and made everything run smoothly! I can’t say thank you enough to Diana and the staff at Best Western for making my husband and I’s wedding reception so spectacular! With much gratitude, THANK YOU!
