Elegant and comfortable

If you like the European style of hotel, you will like the ICON. The rooms are small but have high ceilings and everything is efficeintly arranged. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. In/out valet parking was very easy. For a downtown hotel that is very comfortable and affordable, this is the place. The only problem I had was finding it. The name on the hotel is tiny and obscure. Thank goodness for GPS.

Great Hotel

We went to Houston for Memorial Day to visit the Veterans Cemetery. We found this hotel by chance on Orbitz and were very happy that we booked it. It's in a converted old bank building. Someone did an exquisite job. The room was perfect, with tall ceilings, huge bathroom, instant hot water, and very quiet.

Fantastic couple escape

Very professional staff, there was a mistake on the reservation and the first room they gave didn't match what we requested but they fixed it quickly and the new room was perfect.. the jacuzzi with a windows to the bedrooms is great. The service was great and the free downtown shuttle is super convenient (my wife is 8 1/2 month pregnant so no walking for her) Overall a great experience, we'll be back to the Icon

10 yrs Anniversary

It was great, we were able to, dine, dance, and relax. The only thing bad, was the fact that our room faced a Jazz cafe across the street and we could here everything.
