About Captain Charles

Captain Charles purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Captain Charles chose Downtown
I bought the building with hopes and dreams of redeveloping and restoring as adaptive reuse (mixed use). We are about 75% there with most of the 260,000 SF complex complete. If you like historic buildings and the urban/warehouse experience ... with all the amenities travelers expect today, this is the place for you.

Nice industrial loft apartment. Good location.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was very comfortable. Several nice restaurants and bars in the building, and right across the street.
Stayed at the Penthouse for a long weekend and enjoyed every second. The place was clean and inviting and maintained the industrial charm of the neighborhood. Great little restaurants, brewery and grocery store within the building. Check in and check out were a breeze. Will be back again for sure!
The loft was beautiful, comfortable, and showplace clean. I loved the whole vibe.
This was a last minute trip, decided 2 weeks before our stay. I was here with 2 other friends for a quick ladies getaway. We stayed 2 nights and 3 days. We arrived early (I missed the part about check in time on my confirmation email....oops). We were met with smiles and cordial attitudes, even though I am sure we had surprised them. They were still cleaning the apartment, so we got a mini tour and heard some history about the building. We decided to go explore the town and have lunch.
When we returned we again felt welcome, the staff never skipped a beat. Your staff was professional and personable. They helped get us settled in and reminded us to call if we needed anything. The loft was gorgeous and loved the view! While we were there, there was a big thunderstorm and it was amazing to watch it through the huge window in the living room.
I would stay here again in a heart beat! I would recommend the lofts to anyone who wants a gorgeous comfortable place to stay. We took advantage of the facilities here. We ate at the restaurant downstairs....oh my what yummy food! The menu and specials were varied and it all looked delicious. The wait staff was professional and helpful, even though we were late in ordering, I believe we closed the place.
We used the market several times during our stay. Again those who were staffing the market were friendly , helpful, and professional. Not one grumpy, abrupt, or flip remark the whole time we were there. Each time we had an encounter with staff we were treated with respect, friendliness, and a smile. We were more than a little flying by the seat of our pants during this stay, but we never felt like we were imposing on anyone. We always felt like it was okay to ask questions or it was okay to have a request.
The whole experience was superb. If I had one thing to suggest it would be to have a guide on how to use the TV for us tech impaired travelers (we only watched TV to get the news).
This was the first experience I have had using VRBO and Novelty Lofts has set the standard. Every stay from now on will be compared to our stay here. In conclusion, this stay was more than excellent, thanks you for hosting us and sharing this beautiful place!
We loved the space! It was very updated and had everything we needed! The restaurant down stairs was great! I highly recommend this rental! Thank you!
Rustic, interesting and beautiful! Perfect location!
Beautiful. Easy in/out. Gracious hosts and very helpful! Thank you!
Perfect for Ladies weekend
The loft worked perfect for our group. The loft itself is clean and has a great old industrial style (love the exposed brick!) and a great view. The building was still partly under construction but had a nice courtyard for hanging out. The check in instructions were easy to understand. We realized we were missing sheets for the pullout bed at 10 pm - they responded quickly to our text and brought them up. At first, we weren't sure what to think of the location, but discovered several great dining places less than a block away - Brazen Open Kitchen (pricey but delicious), Inspire Cafe (perfect for coffee + breakfast), and 7 Hills (brewery + delicious food). We originally stayed in Dubuque for its location to Galena, but our time in Dubuque ended up being the best part of the trip. We also enjoyed the mini air hockey table hidden away in the coffee table. Thank you for the great trip!
