5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I have lived in Iowa for almost 20 years and I have always heard of the iconic Hotel Vetro. My girlfriend and I booked a night for valentines weekend and I was so impressed. Super clean, classy, modern, and romantic. We can't wait to stay again! 5stars!

My fiancé and I love this hotel. Every now and then we need to get away, and this is always our first choice in Iowa City. We had a corner king room, which I highly recommend. I love the little kitchenette, and the big soaking tub! Also, location! Location! Location! You're right near restaurants, bars, shopping. You don't even have... More

We've stayed at Hotel Vetro numerous times since it has first opened and it used to be this trendy, modern, interesting hotel. When we stayed there this last weekend we were shocked to find how run down and dirty it was. The rug in our room had a large blood stain on it and there was another blood stain on... More

This hotel has great potential but fell down on the job every step of the way. When we checked in we asked for a cart to get our bags from the car to the room. We were told, "they're all in use", no offer to find one for us or hold a bag at the counter until we could bring... More

We stayed on a Sunday night and had stayed at the hotel Vetro before. It was beat up. Many things in the room were broken and not up to the standards of this kind of hotel. There were no dishes, pans, etc for the kitchenette. Why have a one if you can not use it?

WOW! I just called to request availability for next weekend and the woman who answered the phone was so rude and had an attitude problem right off the bat. I explained to her that I understood it was a football game weekend and that I assumed the rooms would be booked, however, the online reservation options were still in place... More

LOVED THE HOTEL VETRO. We stayed here for 1 night following a Hawkeye Football game. The location was perfectly located for walking around downtown to bars, restaurants and shops. The little grocery store behind the hotel sold unique items + had an outdoor bar so we could purchase drinks and sit outside to listen to the local musician. It's a... More

I was excited to stay at the Hotel Vetro because of the modern design aesthetic. While the room and design were nice, there were lots of small issues. First, their website is horrible and doesn't give much information about the actual hotel, specifically, parking. For others' reference - they DO validate parking in nearby ramps, but you have to ask.... More

We stayed here for 1 night in the middle of the week. I had read up on the hotel, and it seemed to get good reviews, and we were interested to see the modern, upscale decorating and layout. I believe they nailed it when they said unique! I'll be honest, it took me a little bit to get used to,... More

I lived in Iowa City for many years before my stay and had always wondered about staying in hotelVetro. Upon my arrival back in the city of my alma mater, I was so elated to find that it was exactly what I'd always hoped it would be. It was modern, clean, upscale, and inviting. The staff, particularly the front desk... More
