Overnight only, but a perfect stop after a long day traveling. Well appointed bathroom with incredibly deep bath, plus lotions and potions to pamper. Room very clean and well presented. Good eating nearby.

I have been traveling to Iowa City for over six years and have always wanted to stay at Hotel Vetro for a weekend. We finally booked the Glas Suite over Easter weekend and truly enjoyed this unique hotel. To begin with, the staff is very professional: polite, well-mannered young men who truly enjoyed engaging with us every time we passed... More

Thank you for the kind words! The Ped Mall of Iowa City is a vibrant district full of restaurants, pubs and social clubs.

We spent the weekend in Iowa City and were moved to hotelVetro because the Sheraton could not accommodate a rollaway bed in a room with two queen beds (that's another review). The room was very nice and we loved the windows and the balcony. We were very lucky to have a corner room with a large balcony. Since I came... More

This hotel had a fabulous view of the pedestrian mall and campus! If you like the industrial look with concrete floors and only an area rug under the beds, you will love this room. We entertained friends, but had no rug to place their snowy shoes. The kitchenette was a very nice perk--large hotel fridge, stove, sink, and even a... More

As first time visitors to Iowa City, we found Hotel Vetro to be an overall true find. There were multiple things that happened in this stay that were not necessarily perfect – very loud neighbors across the hall for two nights, a kitchen that was not (surprisingly) outfitted with any kitchenware, a coffee maker that didn't really work – but...

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
