My fiancee and I stayed at the Hotel Icon on Saturday night for an overnight "getaway" and I can't say enough about the wonderful experience. The check in experience was amazingly courteous and professional and our corner room was spectacular and comfortable. The service from everyone we were in contact with (reception, bar tender, valet) was excellent adding to our... More

Was able to book one of the last rooms available at the hotel on an extremely busy night in downtown (due to the Beyoncé concert). It was a Queen room, would have preferred a King but was pleasantly surprised. As other reviewers mentioned, the front desk staff was extremely friendly and professional. They offered complimentary drink tickets for the bar... More

We stayed here recently for one night. It was great! The front desk staff set the tone for the stay for sure. They were friendly, helpful, nice, energetic, personable and engaging. The rooms were amazing! They are just gorgeous, the bathrooms are huge, plenty of room for myself and the 3 other ladies that were with me. I want to... More

The Icon is my new favorite hotel in Houston. While the room rates may not be cheap, they are on par with the top hotels in the area. The staff was so friendly at check in, that it set the tone for our stay: as Marriott Gold members we got a free drink coupon and free breakfast in the restaurant.... More

Downtown is not back 100% but it is well on its way. Bars and restaurants are back but the shopping/retail is not there. When the retail returns downtown will be the place to be and the Icon will be the place to stay. The rooms were the star, very charming.

We had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Icon! The room was absolutely gorgeous. We did notice upon arriving that we didn't have hot water, but the issue was resolved in minutes time. An engineer was sent to our room within 5 minutes and explained the city water issue at the time and we had hot water not long after.... More

Minute Maid Park is a few blocks away and the train will take you to Reliant Stadium to watch NFL Football! Hotel ICON is a historic building located in the northern part of the Down Town area of Houston. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your return. Steve GM More

We stayed for an evening out and were very impressed with the hotel and staff. There was a wedding party taking pictures in the Line & Lariat bar/restaurant and we didn't want to disturb them, but the front desk staff made us feel as if we were just as important and accommodated our needs. The corner king junior suite room... More

Hotel ICON thanks you for your review. 1006 is a very nice room with great views. The building was built in 1911 and has been renovated a few times most recently in 2012. We love Hotel ICON and I am pleased that you did too! I hope to see you again in the future! Steve GM More

I recently was in Houston for business and stayed at the Hotel Icon since it was part of the Marriott family. I love the Autograph collection as it deviates from the standard hotel feel. Hotel Icon did not disappoint. The decor and charm of this hotel is felt from the moment you enter. It is modern but unique in its... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay. You are correct about Houston and the limited shopping in the immediate area. There are more and more lounges and dining options opening up and there are some malls in the area but we do look forward to more shopping options in the future. Thank you... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on a quick Houston getaway. The hotel is a repurposed early 20th century bank and the decor is wonderful. The whole place is elegant and modern.

The hotel was nice and clean and the staff was friendly. I was only here for a one night stay but will return. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good. One downside is valet only parking but that's not abnormal for a downtown stay.

We appreciate your comments. I am glad that you enjoyed Hotel ICON and the breakfast. Your feedback is very valuable in letting others know about Hotel ICON. Parking is always difficult in major cities. We have a limited space and try to keep the price comparable to other similar properties in the area. We truly appreciate your business. Thank you...
