Hotel Julien began as the Waples House in 1839. It was furnished extravagantly and was known for its gourmet cuisine. It hosted such famous guests as Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain and Buffalo Bill Cody. Gangster Al Capone is said to have taken sanctuary in Hotel Julien when things got too “hot” in Chicago. He and his entourage would take over the eighth floor and use a nearby underground garage to hide their cars. Rumor has it that Capone owned the hotel at one time. The hotel now has a Capone suite. It is private, spacious and full of luxury, just as Capone would have liked it. The suite’s vintage theme is “Old Hollywood Glamour” and it has a large built in vault.
