My wife and I stay here when we attend events downtown. The rooms are decorated nicely, and the staff is always helpful. Shuttles are available for most downtown destinations. If you decide to stay here it is best to book with a travel site (hotels.com, etc.), you will save 25-50% opposed to booking directly with the hotel.

I stayed here while in Houston for the Chevron Houston Marathon because all of the other larger hotels were booked up. It was a few blocks further away from the start line, as well as the convention center (packet pick-up), but they provided a roomy, comfy shuttle (black suburban) for participants to and from the race start/stop area which was...

Average but poor for price point. I have stayed in a few autograph collection hotels and this is the least nice. Very old hotel. Room had old bedding and little to no water pressure in shower. Overall, for the price, this hotel is not nice. JW would be much better option at this price. I am also sure I would... More

The ICON just makes you "feel good". I have stayed here many times, and keep coming back. It's a classy place with great service. Good location for strolling a few bars and restaurants by foot. Very nice bar area...but a bit pricey.

I have stayed at the Icon many times. A fun and funky hotel. Good location. Rooms are nicely appointed, priced fairly. Front desk staff excellent and helpful. Restaurant wait staff a bit average. All in, I will stay there next time I am in Houston.

This is a converted early 1900's bank that does a great job invoking that elegant turn of the last century feel. The lobby is impressive with high ceilings, massive columns and lush colors. Plenty of cozy chairs and couches provide a nice setting for the lobby lounge. As a whole it is very Reminiscent of some of the CPR Hotels... More

Beautiful hotel in downtown spot. Our room was quiet and large with nice furnishings. The bathroom was very large and well appointed. The bed was a little too firm but not uncomfortable. Valet parking services very on the ball and up to date. Bell and front desk staff were accommodating and cordial. Evening bar staff a little less friendly but... More

I have stayed here more than eight times in the past year and have no complaints. Service is friendly and efficient and the rooms are nicely appointed and clean. It is an older hotel, and the rooms reflect an old-world charm. Always immaculate and nice Marriott-type benefits.
