I love the Marriott Autograph Collection ~ Boutique Hotels and this one did not disappointment.
This was my first trip to Houston and I could not wait enjoy all the city has to offer, Initially, I checked in and was offered a beautiful room that face an abandon building. I called downstairs and asked for another room and was told that there was another room available but on the same side and the view should be the same. I was never give the option to check it out.
I went downstairs and requested information to another Marriott in the area. Well, that request got the General Managers attention who was standing within an earshot of the conversation and I was moved to larger corner gorgeous suite and offered champaign.
At that point my stay flawless...
The fitness center had everything you would need for a great workout. The Standing O restaurant and bar in the lobby was fun and cheerful. The valet and waitstaff were attentive and always smiling. Nice robes and bath amenities. The drapes and furniture were regal and the location gave you great access to the historical, municipal, theater districts. I had a car but did not drive around the city. I walked to shopping area and took the hotel shuttle when I was dressed for dinner and it picked me up. I did drive to other areas such as the Galleria and Stadium. It was the valet that informed me this hotel was frachised to Micheal "MAGIC" Johnson.
I would definitely return. At the end of my stay the GM sent a letter thanking me for choosing the ICON while in Houston. I will definitely be back!
