I am a sucker for anything that has a good history and Hotel ICON has more than I can tell. When we pulled up to the front of Hotel ICON I was so stoked we would be staying right there in downtown. There are tall buildings, restaurants, bars, even the homeless guys asking for cigarettes. It's all there!! Reminds me... More

This hotel is a gem. The staff couldn't be better, Anayeli Gutieerrez and Andrea Sloss at the front desk are wonderful, efficient and welcoming. From the time you park, the staff is so attentive, warm welcoming, professional and over all just terrific

I stayed here for 3 nights in January 2015. The property is unique, I understand that it is an old bank that was reconfigured into a hotel -Marriott or whomever did a great job making it work. It has remnants of the old bank and the luxury of a high end hotel. Mostly what I mean is the bathroom, it... More

We just checked into this hotel. Beautiful lobby with all the old world charm you would expect. Friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. The desk girl walked us to the elevator and told us about the dinner specials. Restaurant is in the lobby. Our room faces down Main street and we can see the action of the city. The train passed...

My wife and I had a nice stay there before Christmas. We were in a large corner room. Very quiet, never heard a voice, door slam or water running. The bathroom was well equipped, but dark. Huge shower with room for 2 (or more!). I pointed out the cracked toilet seat to the desk when we checked out. Following arrival,... More

I loved how unique this hotel is. My room was absolutely beautiful, especially my bathroom. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. I was here for a weekend for a work event so I didn't spend much time in the hotel but it was nice. The truffle fries in the bar were also really good. The only thing I don't like about... More

I had the most miserable experience of any hotel stay of my life at this hotel. I heard sounds of crunching noises off and on from 2 am until 5 am in my room, only to find that "something" (I presumed was a mouse) ate through the bag of unopened popcorn in our room. I was told by the manager... More

Went for a quick one-night stay in downtown Houston just to get away. The ICON got my attention because I'm always on the lookout for cool looking hotels that aren't super expensive. And, the large oversized jacuzzi tub got my wife interested. Booked the junior suite online at marriott.com. We arrived to valet parking, alas, there is no self parking.... More
