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

We are locals who stayed here just for a night out without kids. The Romance Package was awesome, they showed up within minutes, set it all up, it was beautiful and very professional. The hotel has a modern feel that everyone may not like, but the rooms are huge, brightly lit, with enormous balconies not those little tiny things that... More

Wonderful location on pedestrian street and stone's throw from campus. The rooms are very cool - modern, huge and very clean. Comfortable beds with great bedding and all bathroom fixtures are beautiful Koehler and new. Service was perfect - we changed rooms to be near our children without a problem. This is THE place to stay in Iowa City.

I checked into the Hotel Vetro excited based off reviews from tripadvisor, however I am disappointed to say the least. First thing, I came to check in around 2 pm and was told check-in was at 4pm not 3pm as advertised. I didn't stress it too much and went to grab a bite to eat. Once, I got back at... More

I want to take this opportunity to personally apologize to you. The care and condition in which you experienced our guestrooms is utterly unacceptable! We strive to achieve excellence each stay and we absolutely failed you. This is not our standard nor do we have a tolerance for such lack of detail. I hope you will allow us another opportunity...

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
