Best hotel in downtown Houston--from huge rooms, friendly service and awesome food & bar. I had a room with a spa tub, separate shower and could do cartwheels in my room. Wine & drink choices were interesting with a local flair. It's comfortable to bring your family and for business trips. I highly recommend you try this hotel and restaurant.

I had a nice stay at the Icon the first week of September 2014. When I got home, I realized I left a book and a watch in my room. The management team went out of its way to track down my items and mail them to me very quickly. Great service! Kudos to you Icon. I'll be back.

This hotel retains a lot of it's features from a previous life as a bank and it is beautiful. We had a corner room which was very spacious, comfortable and stylish. The air conditioning was noisy, but after a while you no longer notice it (and given that it was 30+ degrees outside, better than going without!). We chose to... More

Thank you for yoru comments about Hotel ICON. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay and I do hope that you get a chance to come visit us again in the near future. As a Historic Building we did have to retrofit the AC about 10 years ago. It does create some white noise issues now and again, but... More

A really gorgeous hotel with large rooms, comfy beds and HUGE bathrooms. The decor is very Texas/southern chic and makes for great pictures. There are a few neat bars and restaurants right across the street. I booked two rooms here for the night before my wedding for myself and my bridesmaids, then ended up recommending it to several friends who... More

My husband likes nice hotel stays so every year I "surprise" him with a different local hotel. This year was a great experience. The hotel room takes you back to when every hotel was different. We loved the details in the room and main areas. I am huge fan of hotel breakfasts. This one was a bit lacking but overall... More

We checked in and immediately encountered a problem - so why am I giving this hotel a "very good" rating? For the efficient and courteous way the staff handled the problem. Minutes after we checked into our room, we discovered a broken door lock. Someone from maintenance arrived right away, promptly decided the problem was not easily fixed and alerted... More

We stayed at the Hotel Icon for my birthday and had a wonderful time. They sent up a slice of chocolate cake surrounded with chocolate dipped strawberries with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate which was a wonderful surprise. The room was great, the bed comfortable, the bathroom spacious what more could you want.

An odd thing occurred last weekend which the hotel did not seem particularly eager to help explain. We checked in late afternoon, opened all curtains on a nice corner room and left for dinner. When we returned the drapes were closed and the TV was on. The explanation from the front desk was that it might have been room service,... More

Service was very good but not much more was anything but average to me.... Overpriced for the location as multiple businesses and restaurants close by seem to be shutdown or closed... A little fowl smell in the hallway on my floor and it felt damp and dreary overall in my room.
