I went to Iowa City for the first time and I did not expect much from this hotel but it surely shined. Finding where to park the rental car was interesting but you park in the closest ramp and the hotel will validate your parking $11/day. Check in was a breeze. Our room 414 was a corner suite with 2 walls that were floor to ceiling windows. You walked into a kitchenette then the bedroom , there was a funky lounger and then a sofa and coffee table and a desk next to window... the bathroom was the best part kohler everything. huge soaker tub, glass shower, funky shallow big white sink with nice faucet nice bath products shower gel shampoo conditioner lotion Sprout I think...sink not too functional as when you spit out your toothpaste it goes onto the mirror but the sink looks great;) bed was on firm side, nice white bedding, Starbucks coffee in rooms to brew, room service breakfast was good but toast was not toasted enough, need room key to access elevators, very modern and nice for the price.

Room Tip: 414 was nice and at end of hall, higher up might be better for views as some of my views were of the Sheraton hotel

Only stayed in IOWA city for the one night, but I must say stayed in a suite with a friend and it was immaculate. Very spacious, very neat and has everything you need. Weekend I was there was going to stay at the Sheraton but it was fully booked, so they recommended for us to come here, and I'm glad they did. Iowa city central is only very small, but this was right amongst everything

Located right on the pedestrian mall in Iowa City, this hotel is perfectly located to walk to campus and numerous restaurants and shops. There is a small whole foods-like grocery store next door which is especially convenient because the rooms that I've stayed in all have small kitchens (not stocked). There are a variety of size/styles of rooms. Some even have decks! The style of the rooms are very modern - glass, no carpet, floor to ceiling windows, hip chairs, and very modern bathrooms which are bizarrely large. There is also a very nice health club in the building. My only complaints are that for a top of the line hotel, even in a small town like Iowa City, the front staff is lacking in professionalism. Service is slow, some can't give simple directions and at times there is no one to be seen at the front desk. (The Sheraton next door has a much more helpful staff.) The elevators are key-operated for safety which is nice since anyone could walk into the lobby and head up to the rooms. I also don't believe that they have movie service on their TVs which is a nice perk and because there is no carpet, the hallways can be a little noisy. Despite these minor complaints, I would definitely recommend this hotel. I travel to Iowa City frequently and have stayed at other hotels in town. This is definitely the best.

Thank you so much for the kind words about your experience at hotelVetro. Certainly we do take pride in providing an exceptional product and a unique style not offered at a traditional branded hotel chain.

Should you ever require any type of amenity in your guest room just let us know! Each traveler is a little different in their request and needs. We do provide an extensive kitchen in a box amenity kit which can be customized to your needs. I have heard you loud and clear when you stated the staff is less than professional. I want you to know this is not the level of service we will continue to provide. We strive to provide the same type of service and product this independent designers. You have my personal guarantee we will improve in this area.

Thank you again for selecting hotelVetro. We look forward to your return!

I grew up in Iowa City, so it was a little odd staying at a hotel. Hotel Vetro was a very nice place to stay. It's walking distance from all of the cool places in Iowa City. The rooms are clean, large, and have very nice views of downtown.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pedestrian mall have the best views.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel Vetro in December and loved it. The hotel is modern and very chic. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was huge and lovely. The location is absolutely perfect. If you are planning to visit Iowa City, you could not be better located. This hotel is directly on the "ped mall", the area of Iowa City closed to car traffic and bustling with bars, restaurants and a fabulous library. Don't miss the market that is on the bottom floor of the hotel. Excellent beer selection and excellent deli choices. A spectacular hotel experience.
