The hotel was originally built in 1911 as the Union National Bank Building and the vault is displayed right behind the registration counter. I was assigned a room on the third floor which shared a wall with the elevator. It wasn't the elevator that was a little noisy but the central air conditioning. I went back down and asked for...

I have stayed here multiple times over the years, even before it became Marriott Autograph Collection. The downtown location is excellent, walking distance to the theater and entertainment district. Wonderful architecture in classic bank building converted to hotel. The top floor has wonderful designer rooms named after famous hotels around the world. Special baths and walk in showers in many...

Really enjoyed the uniqueness of this hotel and its location. Very pretty inside, rooms are large, clean and friendly staff. Visited this hotel twice; once in the summer of 2014 and then in November of 2014 for my sisters wedding. Love Houston!

Beautiful interior, good location, great water pressure in shower. Courteous staff. Unfortunately, three times I had to go downstairs to get my keys reprogrammed to open the door. My colleague, couldn't get a cab and struggled to get his internet going. On a short trip, these are major bogies. Sorry

From inside my room at the Hotel Icon it was difficult to believe that outdoors it was 80 degrees. The air conditioning at the Hotel Icon was so cold that I needed a sweater indoors. Water from the cool air formed on the windows, making it difficult to enjoy the view. The only way I found to lessen the air... More

We stayed in this Hotel during a trip around Texas. The first thing you can see is the impressive Hotel entrance. A big hall, very well decorated and furnished. Really stylish. But also the rooms are very well designed and decorated. The room we got was rather small. But I have to say we got a special rate which was... More

Stayed just for a night. The ambience once you entered the hotel are pretty welcoming with magnificent designs. It has this vintage rustic elevator which caught my eyes, though it is not that spacey, it was pretty ok. One thing though, the a/c in our room was pretty noisy. Didn't file a complaint as we thought it would only be... More

This is a fantastic downtown hotel. The architecture is amazing. Our room was very clean and so nice! Love the design of the bathrooms. We enjoyed walking down Main Street. You can catch a Metro train right close to the hotel. Definitely will stay here again.
