Overall my stay at hotel vetro was a pleasant one. its convientantly located in the heart of downtown iowa city. I thouroughly enjoyed the sushi restaurant located in the lobby called Formosa. I was pleasantly surprised to find a vibrant downtown located less than a half a block. plenty of restaraunts and choice watering holes perfect for entertaining clients.

We booked the romance package. The extra expense didn't even cover the champagne, cheese & fruit I'm sure. We LOVE staying at this hotel. It makes the oncologist visits a little more bearable! The beds are very comfortable!

I was traveling with my wife and our toddler to meet with family and friends. The service at the front desk was very nice and accommodating; however, be warned that loading/unloading of luggage can be rough as the "loading zone" is very small and appeared to often times be occupied. We simply parked ourselves and used the walk way to...

We had two rooms we booked in March. The receptionists were all very accommodating and helpful. Our rooms were clean suited our needs perfectly. One star taken off for uncovered balconies, light fixture not working and hole in wall in room. Other than that we were very pleased with our stay. Also connected to a very nice square with playground...

I have stayed here on 3 different occasions. I love the modern rooms, the kitchenettes, and the bath-tubs are probably my all time favorite non-jetted hotels bath-tubs. We under-booked our stay by a day (3 nights instead of 4), and when I checked in they were sold out for the last night I needed. They checked every day and put...

We booked the romance package for our wedding night. We arrived at approximately 10:30 pm and checked in, nobody helped us with our bags and then I was informed I could park in the ramp next door. I guess that's what they mean by valet parking. We proceeded to our room and everything was fine until the morning. The package...

I thought the room was really nicely appointed, though it could use more electrical outlets and USB ports. I also thought the placement of the TV was weird, but wasn't a big deal. I would stay here again.

Hotel Vetro is hyped as a modern somewhat luxurious hotel in downtown Iowa City. I was really looking forward to staying here having lived in Iowa City for nine years previously and watched the hotel being built and heard all the hype. The overall feel is barebones minimum industrial-ish. When we first got to our room I had to use...

I stayed here for four nights in April while traveling for work. The hotel is very modern and my room included a kitchenette (with full sized refrigerator and stove) as well as a spacious seating area, high ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows along one wall. Unfortunately, the view was of a parking lot, but I was not at the...

Nice hotel, beds were good as well as nice large bathroom with shower and tub. Only thing I would like to see is maybe valet parking. As a female having to park in a parking garage down the street and tote my luggage back to hotel was a little bit of an inconvenience.
