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.

Hotel Vetro is hyped as a modern somewhat luxurious hotel in downtown Iowa City. I was really looking forward to staying here having lived in Iowa City for nine years previously and watched the hotel being built and heard all the hype. The overall feel is barebones minimum industrial-ish. When we first got to our room I had to use... More

I stayed here for four nights in April while traveling for work. The hotel is very modern and my room included a kitchenette (with full sized refrigerator and stove) as well as a spacious seating area, high ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows along one wall. Unfortunately, the view was of a parking lot, but I was not at the... More

Nice hotel, beds were good as well as nice large bathroom with shower and tub. Only thing I would like to see is maybe valet parking. As a female having to park in a parking garage down the street and tote my luggage back to hotel was a little bit of an inconvenience.

Great rooms. Great location. Great space. Great ambience. BUT ONLY if you like ultra-modern. The distressed concrete and in your face finishes will appeal to some and offend others. I loved it. the bed was comfortable. The bathroom great. And having all that space a luxury. My go to place in Iowa City

The location and amenities at the Hotel Vetro would appeal to just about anyone, but the ultramodern, industrial chic decor would not. I LOVE that look, but if the idea of distressed concrete floors, "reclaimed" cabinetry and a brown-taupe-beige color palette doesn't appeal, definitely do not stay here. I pulled off I-80 in a snowstorm, delighted that I'd finally have... More

I was in Iowa city for 3 days and stayed at the vetro. Pros - each room is a studio model i.e a small stove/fridge/microwave. The downside - no dishes/cutlery provided whatsoever but if you bring something to the room to heat and eat instead of spending money on room service, you have the amenities to do that. - The...
