Located in the heart of the downtown area, this is an upscale, urban hotel. We had a week long stay while I went into the local university hospital for surgery. (Special rate for patients) Could have stayed at one of the many chain hotels in the area, but we found this gem, which offers a few balcony rooms, which allows... More

I traveled to Iowa City for a wedding recently and stayed at the Hotel Vetro. Before I even arrived, employee Makaylee McDowell went out of her way to help me with some needs that I had regarding room amenities. She put in more effort than most hotel employees would, going above and beyond what I expected, and I really appreciated... More

The beds are good, if lumpily made, and the location is outstanding. The towels are thick and fluffy. Other than that … Where to begin with this place? Let’s start with the trek from the parking area to the rooms. From the parking structure, you and your bags have to go down one elevator; around an four-foot-high wall through a... More

The architecture and design of the room was nice, but the room was tired and in disrepair. Seems like it could be pretty nice if it were fixed up a bit and it has a lot of potential... but as-is, it was not very good. --The window shades were in bad shape, they were hard to open/close, and the cords...

Well, first of all, I was there for the Iowa City's Writer's Conference. I called ahead to ask if they had a "business center" or a printer that I could use. The did, indeed have printers, but they never worked. I always ended up having to go to the copy store or the public library. The rooms are pretty big,... More

Hotel Vetro is an exceptional hotel, with spacious, modern rooms and a not-to-be-beat location, with a staff that is wonderful. This is our second stay here, and everything was perfect--except for our room location over the "Party Balcony." The hotel has some rooms that have large balconies and we were, unfortunately, right above one of them where there were 10... More

Loved this hotel! Stayed here for one night, though wished we could have stayed longer. Fifth floor room had fantastic view with floor to ceiling windows. Huge room with great modern design and very comfortable beds. Location can't be beat for downtown Iowa City.
