3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I booked a last minute room (paid full price) for a valentines get away. We checked into the hotel room late, around 11 pm. We were put in a handicap room. It was fine, but the large accessible bathroom with no shower (just a sloped area with handicap bars and a plastic curtain) was very unromantic. It was late and... More

My wife and I live in Houston and have been looking for a great place to stay when we attend the various Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo (HLSR) events, including the World Championship BBQ Cookoff. We've tried other hotels in the past and found many to not be worth the cost. This hotel isn't the cheapest that you will find... More

I'm always seeking historic hotels, and this place is great. Cozy, nice classic lobby with ample seating on couches, high tops, or at the bar. Great bar food and attendant bar tenders. I had to wait for a room to be ready (arriving at 10 am) which I expected, but the desk checked my bags and I enjoyed the lobby... More

We simply adore our nights at the Icon. We always sleep like rocks. We have never found a hotel that is quieter and more conducive to relaxation. The lobby bar is wonderful for a nightcap. We have walked comfortably to events at Jones Hall, Alley Theater, Wortham Center, and even Hobby Center. The only negative is that recently, the food... More

I stayed here for a week whilst in town on business. I have to say that it started well, the reception staff were very friendly on arrival, but it went a bit downhill from there. The overall decor of the bar and restaurant is nice, and the bank vault door behind reception is very cool, but the rooms were a... More

I recently stayed at the Hotel Icon on an extended business trip and, while the hotel is historic and beautiful, I will not choose it again for future trips to Houston. The lobby is nice, with a decent bar/restaurant and charming antique elevators. I also found the room to be large enough and well-furnished. The problems start when you turn... More

I want to say I only have one complaint, but it is a deal breaker. The pipes in this beautiful old hotel converted from a bank are so noisy!! I got almost no sleep two days in a row in the middle of the week. I am exhausted! Everything else was great! The bar has a wonderful recipe for a... More

room was lovely, comfortable bed and great shower. The air conditioner fan was a little loud. Room was a little small for the amount of furniture crowded into it. could have done without a couple of pieces that were banged into with my foot and shin.
