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.

Very noisy. Couldn't sleep. Was very mad. Rude people & too expensive for a hotel in a small town. The area was horrible & did not feel okay being with kids. Never coming back. I hate this town & this hotel !!! Worst !!!

This is the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in. There are no quiet rooms. On one side of the hotel, you will be kept awake until 3 AM by the bars; and on the other side you will be woken at 3 AM by the delivery lorries. My room was on the delivery lorry side, and the noise began... More

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

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...
