Houston Hotel Icon

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.

Icon says it all!

Cool hotel with funky decor. Bed was really comfortable, and the shower was over the top. I stopped at the bar for a late night snack, and the flatbread appetizer was incredible. The location is in an old part of downtown that is redevelpong, but it was easy to park or walk to nearby restaurants.

A Great Find.

The hotel is a 1911 bank building which was beautifully and carefully renovated in 2005. The public spaces are attractive in inviting, with a comfortable bar as one approaches the award winning restaurant. The staff were very welcoming, and the room had a bathroom comparable to 5 star hotels.

Loved It!!

This hotel was fantastic!! The lobby has very cool decor, and the staff was so helpful! Love love loved the HUGE bathroom and the room in general. Location is in walking distance to the light rail that goes to the Reliant Center. The only negative thing that I have to say is that the housekeeping staff stocked my room with only DECAF coffee for the coffee maker. I mean, why even bother drinking coffee if it is decaf?!?

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Hotel is one block from the Light Rail Station. The light rail takes you to great eating, and entertainment for $1.25. Plus you don't have to look for a place to park.

ICON Hotel, Houston

I have seldom, if ever, seen a more courteous staff throughout from the doormen, front desk, wait staff, housekeeping. Without being overly solicitous, they all greeted with sincerity and always offered to help. When I couldn't get the elevator to operate (they have installed new card key security), the staff didn't just tell me and redirect me, with apologies for not being clear, the front desk person came to the elevator to be sure it worked. Several small instances like this.
