Here it is 6 months after I stayed here and I am still angry ! I left a nice dress that I wore to a wedding in the hotel room. We checked out at noon and I realized I left the dress there and called before 5 pm. I was assured no one had cleaned the room yet and no one else checked in and yet my dress was not there- odd that no one could find it when no one had even entered the room since we left. The hotel is in a great location in terms of being in the heart of downtown Iowa City. Somethings in the room seemed a little run down. Hard to find ice. Just a bunch of little things- kind of disappointed and a bit shocked that it is a Tapestry Collection hotel- Hilton is usually a sure bet and Tapestry hotels are very good. Would not return. Still can't believe someone took the dress from the room- not happy.

Every thing in the room was broken. Blinds to access the balcony I paid extra for, chairs etc. the staff was helpful but couldn’t fix anything. I’ve stayed here two weeks in a row and have experienced the same thing in two different rooms !!!!!!

Garbage in my room on arrival and dirty dishes in sink Clogged bathroom sink and missing towels Broken shades That’s just a few if the many issues and no one cared to help ameliorate when I reported this There have an agreement with a good private gym - the only upside besides the location I don’t recommend this place

Lots of street noise. Thin walls because we could hear some party going on for hours after a wedding ended. Concrete floors all over the hotel. It's kind of cool but you can hear heels walking down the hallway at all hours. Toilet didn't flush. Hair in shower. It is a nice hotel room but I prefer a more traditional Hilton. Could be an age thing. The kitchenette was handy so I could refrigerate drinks. Front desk employees were very nice.

Lots of issues with our stay. HVAC was loud and not controllable. On or off. No adjusting temperature as the thermostat was taped together. Lights not working throughout the room. Paid extra for patio -- dead birds, cigarette butts, weeds in the cracks, bird poop on chairs. Loud noise from the bathroom throughout our stay. Stayed here in 2017 but has gotten tacky. Our friends had similar issues in their room as well. Sad.

Concrete floors in rooms and common space. Very drab and not comfortable at all. AC unit in our room was very noisy and the concrete floors made it worse. Wonderful location and staff was good too, but we were not comfortable there at all. I would not stay here again.

Great location, Beautiful property but the rooms are filthy, the service is lacking and there is no breakfast! Came away from this property utterly disappointed. Started right when we arrived, it was past 4PM the lobby was empty but we didn’t have a room. Waited 15 minutes for a room when we got one, there were items left over from the previous guest and the floors were filthy When I went to the front desk the next morning to ask for 1 towel… they said they would bring it up. It never came…. The property seemed empty so they can’t say they were busy! I’d stay away from this one.

Most all of the staff were friendly however the rooms have housekeeping issues. Bathroom was not clean. Hair in shower when I arrived, soap dish filthy, mismatched toiletries with no shampoo The balcony room I paid for…. The balcony was mostly covered in disgusting stagnant water with no drain. It’s been this way a whole bc there are huge growths of miss under the water. Nasty. Also the pillows on the outdoor furniture had clearly been out there for months. It was filthy and you couldn’t even really walk out there unless you hugged the wall. The balcony furniture was filthy. If not going to clean the balcony… ever shouldn’t charge more for that room. Also when extra pillows were requested, they didn’t have any. Weird Not a single glass of any kind in the room to use for water. Priced like a nice hotel and looks pretty when your first look but not worth the price.

We loved the location of Vetro in Iowa City. We were able to walk everywhere (Prairie Lights Bookstore; University campus; Stanley Art Museum; etc.) Our room was spacious and light-filled. The king-sized bed was comfortable. And the staff members at Vetro were fantastic. Every single staff member we met was excellent. Special thanks to William, who went out of his way to help make our stay perfect.

For an upscale hotel they have a long way to go. Front desk service is almost non-existent. Rooms are large and the beds are super comfortable which means a lot but there were so many issues it outweighs those factors. Toilet didn't work and they couldn't get maintenance to fix it before they left for the day so my room was downgraded (no balcony). my new room sink drained very poorly, no hangers, no blanket, 1/2 roll of toilet paper. things are shabby as other people have said and need major updating. Overall great location and nearby amenities and good bed and room size but needs a LOT of work.
