We had a great stay at Hotel Vetro as part of a mid-week fall retreat. What a great decision to stay here! We frequently travel with our dog and were glad to find this great hotel right near the action in Iowa City. The room itself was beautiful with floor to ceiling windows and a big spa-like bathroom. It was... More

The rooms are very modern with sleek contemporary furnishings. The concrete floors are bit cold in January, and the minimalist rugs don't help much. When I first arrived, the AC was blasting and the room was very cold. Hard to know why since it was freezing outside. It was very difficult to get the programmable thermostat to respond. The room...

Have stayed here few times in the last year. Very modern, clean and friendly. Have always had good service, even when arriving very late... For a regular traveler, the spacious rooms and ultra modern fitout are a welcome change from all those other places that feel like a journey back to the 1980s. Very much recommended.

The hotel is very modern and well located. The pedestrian mall is right outside the doors and has access to restaurants, bars, shops, etc. We called directly to make a reservation, and the room rate was lower than on the websites like booking.com. The staff was very friendly and helpful in making restaurant recommendations, etc. The room was more than... More

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

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
