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

Stayed here last week while I dropped my freshman daughter off to school. Price was high for Iowa City but based on timing I think that is expected. I chose to stay here because of the amenities like a pool and free internet. I might have stayed here on all of my future visits to Iowa City but based on... More

Loved the hotel and the room which includes a refrigerator, small stove, sink (no kitchen supplies, not even silverware). Modern room with treated concrete floors. Lots of space, great beds and a good view. Bathroom was also really nice. Would have given 5 stars except that the bathroom door is a large, loud, smoked glass door. Not entirely private bathroom...

Attended a wedding and stayed at Hotel Vetro a few weekends ago...As others noted it is best to approach from the north for ease of unloading car. Nice location and quick check-in. Pleasant staff and actually we did not have to wait too long for elevators. Room 406 Balcony Suite/King Bed was roomy and well equipped as well as a... More

The hotel is in a great location, nice area. Grocery store, cvs, ice cream store, gift shops and restaurants are walking distance. Parking in a nearby parking structure. Rooms are modern, glass partition between room and bathroom, coffee maker, microwave, fridge, but no utensils, no cups, no plates. We had problems with room keys, had to change room. A/C is... More

Very clean, excellent location. Loved that there was room to socialize as we were with friends from out of town and wanted a place to play cards. The decor is extremely modern, which one of us loves and other other doesn't, but regardless it had everything we could need or want. It was absolutely freezing outside when we visited, but... More

The hotel is quite avant garde with floor-to-ceiling windows. The rooms are very spacious, including the glass bathroom with soaking tub. The major issue is the water pressure in the shower. My room was on the 6th floor and I asked for engineering to check out the water pressure. Seems it is the highest volume acrosss the entire floor. Colleagues... More
