Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Planning an event in Iowa City? This hotel has facilities measuring 15000 square feet (1350 square meters), including a conference center. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
6.5 Good
Pros: The hotel looks great on the website - very high-end, ultra modern. It is ideally located near the University of Iowa campus and in the heart of the downtown nightlife. Lots of restaurants, bars and shops are nearby. Parking is conveniently located next door (although the daily rate was a bit of a surprise).
Cons: While the reality is similar to the photos, the hotel is showing some signs of use and a lack of high standards. The front desk experience was fine, but the attendant was seated behind a low desk (rather than the counter) which required the guests to be seated while checking in. The front desk attendant also was responsible for taking room reservations while simultaneously taking care of guests. We waited 10 minutes for a phone call that resulted in a "thanks for the information, but I'll reserve online instead because it's cheaper" - frustrating to listen to every word. Having 2 people on duty would have alleviated this situation. The furniture has been well used and beginning to show signs of wear, walls have many scrapes and dents, etc. In the bathroom, the water pressure is relatively low yielding more of a "sprinkle" than a "shower". The huge garden tub took nearly 30 minutes to fill. Overall, it was a fine experience, but we won't be going back. It wasn't worth the price tag.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. They let us bring our dog, which we appreciate.
Cons: Couple things could improve it- make it clear when booking that while there is a kitchen in the room there will be no dishes, silverware, glasses or paper towels. There is supposedly a "kichen in a box" option mentioned in the room, but it showed pots and pans. Had to go buy glasses to drink a bottle of wine. Coffee pods provided were too big for the coffeemaker in the room and caused a mess when tried to use it. No paper towels provided. Balcony was great, but it had old cigarette butts and trash that could have easily been cleaned up. Minor things, but if fixed the experience would have been better
4.2 Okay
Pros: The rooms looked cool.
Cons: Got an email saying my room would be ready at 3:00 and we finally got in at 5:00. Staff at counter downstairs were rude. Cement floors looks neat, but you can hear everything on your floor. I will never go back or recommend. Go to the Sheraton if you want to stay downtown.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: phone data worked without hotel wifi tablet was on hotel wifi, it was fast very spacious grocery store in building is actually a grocery store
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff at Hotel Vetro were extremely friendly and accommodating. We travelled to Iowa City for a wedding, and we were able to get into our room 4 hours head of check-in time in order to get ready for the event! The room was amazing and the bed divine. We will definitely be returning to Vetro on our next trip!

Pros: I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and atmosphere at Baymont. It is located right near Coral Ridge Mall and close it University of Iowa, right off I80. I was traveling with two children under 3, and it was very convenient to have a mini-fridge in the room, and free breakfast.
5.1 Okay
Cons: I didn't like how the staff accused my children of doing something they didn't do then kicked them out of the pool because of it.... I believe that j ow the staff acted was racially motivated and I don't think I will be staying there again
9.7 Excellent
Pros: Excellent hotel for the price. Very friendly staff and good morning breakfast
5.7 Okay
Pros: Effort to update rooms with new carpet, paint, decor and tv friendly desk staff. Coffee was good. was fine for just one night
Cons: bathroom old, dingy tile. areas of paint over bad spots on walls. looked like just superficial updating. breakfast was subpar, food counters to crowded, low class with home kitchen crockpots, no serving spoon rests. eating area too small and quickly congested. Microwave was FILTHY and didn't even work. Shelf it sat on also dirty and rickety appearing.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: courteous staff
Cons: shower drained slowly
2.0 Mediocre
Cons: I purchased a pet friendly room and when I called about 20 miles away to confirm they told me all the pet rooms were taken and I wouldnt be allowed to stay with my dog. Lost $80.
5.1 Okay
Pros: Good location near interstate. Friendly front desk. OK value. Room itself seemed clean and comfortable.
Cons: Breakfast did not have coffee. Slight odor throughout. Common areas not clean and tidy.
6.2 Good
Pros: This isn't a really great hotel but you can't expect a Baymont to be. I was there for a football game and paid quite a bit for the room, but that was to be expected for a football game. There was a breakfast that was very adequate, the room was perfectly fine, and the location isn't too bad, its just sort of tucked back. When I stay at a hotel like this I have lower expectations and this hotel met or exceeded everything I reasonably expected from it.
Cons: I knew where it was before booking so it isn't really a knock on the hotel, but if you are looking to go out in downtown Iowa City I would look for a hotel closer. It can be a pain to get transportation back to here late at night. If you do find it, it can be a little pricey so consider it if a closer hotel is only a little more expensive.
