I wasn't sure where to stay in Iowa City and picked this place because of its location. The hotel was amazing. Staff was very kind. When I got up to my room, the wall of windows provided a great view. The separate tub was a nice way to wind down and the bed was very comfortable. There is also a...

Didn't do any investigation prior to booking, wow! The hotel has a contemporary feel to it with its concrete floors and oversized rooms. The balcony in my suite was almost as big as the room! Full kitchen and oversized bathroom to boot. My stay was outstanding.

We have been staying at the Vetro for over ten years. We enjoyed the ceiling to floor windows, spacious rooms and downtown location. Most of the time we stay during football weekends when the price of the rooms is at a premium. This spring we passed through Iowa City and stayed at the Vetro. The first room they assigned us...

My partner and I stayed for three nights. Cisco (the front manager) was very helpful while my partner was sick. He was able to make sure we were taken care of, as well as other the other employees. On our last night, the room across from us were having a party night and were smoking weed. YOU CAN SMELL IT...

This is the perfect hotel to stay at for a taste of the city life in the Iowa City area. Modern, clean rooms and unique hotel packages make every stay an adventure. Being right on the Iowa City ped Mall, there are plenty of options for entertainment, eating, and libations.

Stayed here with 7 month old grandchild while daughter interviewed at UIHC. Hotel is nice. Very modern. Concrete floors with throw rugs. Good shower water pressure. Clean. Employees very friendly. Kitchenette nice only wish they had glasses and silverware in the rooms.

Typically I like boutique hotels because the service is more personal and in check. I didn't find this at Vetro when there recently for five nights on business. Every opportunity for service was average at best. The room was fine, nothing special. Comfy bed. Concrete floors aren't my favorite. I think I'll try the Sheraton next door next time I'm...

The bed was comfortable but he aware that the floor is polished concrete with area rugs. It was rather cold to walk when barefoot in the room. There is a nice kitchenette and a few dishes, but no silverware, no cookware, no knives. We bought some fruit in the market on the first floor, and then had nothing to cut...

Nice rooms and generally nice staff, but they turned cold and unhelpful at points. In particular, we begged for a late check-out (wife and I have two little kids and NEVER get to sleep late apart from this vacation) and they refused (or offered 30 mins) without bothering to pause to check if the room was booked, when they expected...
