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

Was I in Europe or Iowa City? I loved my room and this hotel. It is very modern, floor to ceiling windows, with a wonderful chaise lounge, large bathtub, and very large room. There is a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, stove top and microwave, kitchen counter with two chairs. The price is very reasonable. We wanted a picnic... More

Great modern hotel in downtown Iowa City. My wife and I spent a weekend night to see a show at the Englert Theater. The room was great. It had a balcony, kitchen, modern bathroom with a tub, and comfortable king sized bed. I'd recommend getting the city view rooms, since our rooms faced the parking garage and HVAC units. In... More

Overall my stay at hotel vetro was a pleasant one. its convientantly located in the heart of downtown iowa city. I thouroughly enjoyed the sushi restaurant located in the lobby called Formosa. I was pleasantly surprised to find a vibrant downtown located less than a half a block. plenty of restaraunts and choice watering holes perfect for entertaining clients.

We booked the romance package. The extra expense didn't even cover the champagne, cheese & fruit I'm sure. We LOVE staying at this hotel. It makes the oncologist visits a little more bearable! The beds are very comfortable!

I was traveling with my wife and our toddler to meet with family and friends. The service at the front desk was very nice and accommodating; however, be warned that loading/unloading of luggage can be rough as the "loading zone" is very small and appeared to often times be occupied. We simply parked ourselves and used the walk way to... More

We had two rooms we booked in March. The receptionists were all very accommodating and helpful. Our rooms were clean suited our needs perfectly. One star taken off for uncovered balconies, light fixture not working and hole in wall in room. Other than that we were very pleased with our stay. Also connected to a very nice square with playground... More

I have stayed here on 3 different occasions. I love the modern rooms, the kitchenettes, and the bath-tubs are probably my all time favorite non-jetted hotels bath-tubs. We under-booked our stay by a day (3 nights instead of 4), and when I checked in they were sold out for the last night I needed. They checked every day and put... More

We booked the romance package for our wedding night. We arrived at approximately 10:30 pm and checked in, nobody helped us with our bags and then I was informed I could park in the ramp next door. I guess that's what they mean by valet parking. We proceeded to our room and everything was fine until the morning. The package... More

I thought the room was really nicely appointed, though it could use more electrical outlets and USB ports. I also thought the placement of the TV was weird, but wasn't a big deal. I would stay here again.
