I recently stayed at the hotel Vetro. I went to Iowa city to see my college student and to give her some R&R away from the dorm. Little did I know that the Vetro is a dog friendly hotel...I am a dog lover but this was too much...the two yipping dogs in the next room barked for four straight hours... More

I love this hotel! I stayed a second night because I felt so comfortable and happy here. The mattress, the linens, pillows, glossy concrete floors, spare and tasteful décor, beautiful bathroom with huge soaking tub, art-filled hallways, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the city…all max out the comfort and style quotient. I wish I could stay for a week and... More

The room/suite was quite nice, so this hotel has a potential to be much better. There were 2 troubles: 1. The trash cans are not always being emptied and not all the towels are being provided. 2. I called the reception night before and asked if I could check out at 3AM. I was told yes. When I arrived at... More

hotelVetro is a great spot in downtown IC. The beds were comfortable, the room (Studio) was spacious and the view of the pedestrian mall was nice. We were here for business and enjoyed the check in which was fast and friendly, the view, the rooms, and check out was very good. The hotel was clean and quiet as we couldn't... More

This sleek, modern hotel stands in the center of a pedestrian mall filled with an array of restaurants, bars, and interesting little stores--and it's within easy walking distance to the University of Iowa. Vetro's polished cement floors, expansive windows, step-in showers provide a sleek, modern feel. The beds are comfy and staff, friendly. It's one of the most unique hotels... More

We are locals who stayed here just for a night out without kids. The Romance Package was awesome, they showed up within minutes, set it all up, it was beautiful and very professional. The hotel has a modern feel that everyone may not like, but the rooms are huge, brightly lit, with enormous balconies not those little tiny things that... More

Wonderful location on pedestrian street and stone's throw from campus. The rooms are very cool - modern, huge and very clean. Comfortable beds with great bedding and all bathroom fixtures are beautiful Koehler and new. Service was perfect - we changed rooms to be near our children without a problem. This is THE place to stay in Iowa City.

I checked into the Hotel Vetro excited based off reviews from tripadvisor, however I am disappointed to say the least. First thing, I came to check in around 2 pm and was told check-in was at 4pm not 3pm as advertised. I didn't stress it too much and went to grab a bite to eat. Once, I got back at... More

I want to take this opportunity to personally apologize to you. The care and condition in which you experienced our guestrooms is utterly unacceptable! We strive to achieve excellence each stay and we absolutely failed you. This is not our standard nor do we have a tolerance for such lack of detail. I hope you will allow us another opportunity...

One of the consistent complaints about the Hotel Vetro here on TripAdvisor is the intrusive nature of housekeeping. Sure enough, at 9am on Saturday - 3 hours before our checkout time - housekeeping was knocking at our door, waking up both me and my wife. This needs to be fixed. Otherwise it was a good experience. The room was great,... More
