Nice Hotel in D-Town Hou

Everything was good and service quite excellent except for staff twice overcharging for valet parking. Have free shuttle going everywhere through downtown, which worked out great.

Houston weekend trip

Would recommend Tue, Dec 30, 2014
The hotel location is excellent, plenty of dinning options around the hotel area. The room was clean and the staff friendly, the only negative observation is the hotel food. We ordered breakfast and it was overpriced and the food had no flavor. At night we went to the hotel bar and ordered food, same, the food was overpriced and no flavor.

Dining

Hotel is excellent, but don't eat their food, it is overpriced and no flavor.

Amazing Weekend

Would recommend Fri, Jun 6, 2014
My husband and I had never been to Houston before and had no idea what to expect. This hotel was everything we could have hoped for. The breakfast and create your own omelette bar were fabulous and the staff was extremely helpful from start to finish. Very impressed and we definitely will be coming back.

Mixed Bag

Would recommend Tue, Jan 14, 2014
I wanted to stay in a luxury hotel so after some research I chose this property. The junior suite was a nice size and the large bathroom was why I initially chose this hotel. Large tub and shower but the faucets leaked and did not work properly. Also they made a lot if noise when turned on and off. In the morning we heard loud banging from the room next door that woke us up at 830 am. It was either pipes from their bathroom or housekeeping banging. Called the front desk and they did not seem too concerned. Room also had a musty smell to it and the windows were dirty along with the furniture in the room that had cup stains on it. Valet was fast and efficient. Room service quality was not good. The coffee was lukewarm. The hotel had character however for the price and bring part of the autograph collection it should have been impeccable. Not much to do in the area. It was like a ghost town on the Saturday afternoon we arrived. The rubber ducky in the bathroom is cute!

Shopping hint

Go or stay in Galleria area if you want food choices and shopping!

Enjoyed our stay

Would recommend Tue, Nov 26, 2013
Room was beautiful and bathroom was roomy and beautifully decorated. Liked the cowboy rubber ducky for bath time:-). Room service food was delicious, even fruit plate for the most part was good. Didn't like having to pay for valet parking. Staff was friendly. Maid service was a little tardy, didn't come until late afternoon and by then we had already called up and had fresh towels delivered. Overall enjoyed. Would probably stay here again or try other of the same brand hotel.

Food was good for hotel food.

Weekend getaway

Would recommend Mon, Dec 17, 2012
Best shower I have ever experienced. I had to mention this first. I've stayed in many hotels and a good shower is right up there with having a clean room. I love the decor/style of the room. Staff was very helpful and made my stay very enjoyable. Only minor criticism are the pillows...just too small. I'm not looking for giant pillows but the pillows were child size. However this would not stop me from staying there every time I come to Houston.

Location and value

Would recommend Mon, Nov 19, 2012
My work travel budget is restricted. I chose Hotel Icon because it is within walking distance of the Brown Convention Center and the Or--- reservation was far less expensive than staying at the Convention Center hotel or making a reservation directly with Hotel Icon. While the proximity of the hotel was perfect (20 minute walk), I felt uncomfortable walking around the neighborhood alone during daylight hours and would not do so after dark. My room's 3/4 bathroom included a shower alcove and thankfully I did not get any belongings wet from the resulting spread of water as there was no lip to prevent this. I was surprised that there was no maid service during my 2-night stay. The free wifi internet access did not work - my computer connected just fine but the service was so slow that even my email did not load. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. A tiny business center was available for printing out my boarding pass. The room's quaint decor was refreshing - an eclectic collection of antique and vintage furnishings. A big soft comforter and fluffy pillows helped me get a refreshing sleep, so important for business trips.

Money saver

Look for on-line reservation discounts to take advantage of the close walking proximity of Hotel Icon to the Brown Convention Center.

Houston Hotel Icon

Would recommend Wed, Oct 17, 2012
Top shelf...really one of the finer properties I have stayed in for some time. Solid hotel...great room design...hugh tub... big shower with amazing water pressure. All the little things were done very very well. Food very nice, fine bar...good breakfast. On the edge of downtown close to light rail, theater district and about a mile from ballpark and basketball. Neighborhood just a bit edgy at night (not really) but...transitions quickly (1 block) to shopping district. I would HIGHLY recommend this property.
