Having just checked out of Hotel Icon after a very pleasant 3 day stay I can honestly say I was disappointed to leave. The hotel is a true urban sanctuary offering a serene and beautifully decorated abode staffed by willing and extremely personable smart young things. Our room on the 21st floor had a panoramic view over Victoria Harbour and the bed was blissful. As mentioned by a previous reviewer the bath tub TV in our room didn't work either....perhaps there is an issue with them. Although not large our room was extremely comfortable and the finishes were of high quality. The curved wall/door separating the bathroom from the bedroom ensured complete privacy unlike the overly used see through walls that many other hotels favor. The Green lounge off the lobby was a great place to start off the night with cocktails. Too many other choices in the city prevented us from dining there but would definitely try on a return visit. The location in East TST is probably not the hotel's strongest point being somewhat on the edge of the action, however the MRT and Nathan Rd are just a 10-15 minute walk and the hotel operates a regular shuttle service. For those seeking a fresh and stylish hotel with genuine service minus the starchiness, Hotel Icon is an excellent choice.
