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

Came in to tour the hotel so we could book rooms for a company outing. Met with Morgan from the front desk who gave an amazing tour. Her customer service was top notch and made the stay was amazing as well. The hotel is in a great location and the rooms were amazing

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

There for five nights, at a University conference. The room was capacious, with two desks, a rare amenity and very useful for an academic couple. The WiFi was a bit spotty, but usually OK. Not many amenities, for example, the only water glasses were thin disposable plastic ones. The staff was agreeable enough, although I was surprised to find one... More

I have a recent stay for 2 weeks when I was attending a course in Iowa University. It is a definitely perfect stay as the room is large, clean and new. All front desk staff and shuttle service staff are super friendly and helpful. As I have some allergy to pillow feather on the first night, they changed everything including... More

What a lovely hotel. I recently stayed here with a group and was super impressed with the hotel and staff. Some small room share issues were effectively dealt with immediately. Rooms are enormous and very nicely appointed. Toiletries were very good quality, bathroom linen too. Close to fabulous food and things to see. Adjoining Sushi restaurant worth a visit too.
