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.

I was fortunate to be staying at Hotel Vetro when I realized I had left all my jewelry in a drawer and flown home. I called the hotel and Quinn, staffer at the front desk, volunteered to track down my jewelry and overnight it back to me. I got my jewelry back and couldn't be more grateful that the honest...

This is a newer, modern hotel in the heart of downtown IC. Spacious rooms with lots of windows and concrete floors that make the rooms feel clean. Bland lobby shares space with a sushi place, so look out for the stereotypical Bachelorette party from Bettendorf. Incredibly loud air conditioning may be startling to the unprepared, and if your room overlooks... More

Location was great but that's really about it. The lobby area was not very clean and neither was the room. The furniture was stained and dirty. The staff at the front desk was polite at check in but when I had a question later on, they could not answer it. The hotel itself is rather strange as part of it... More
