Charming hotel. Tons of character, beauty and refined appointments. Staff were professional, courteous and kind. Valet was prompt and friendly. The restaurant is crisp, modern and elegant...with excellent staff.
Out guest room was quite beautiful. Lots of detail and extra character throughout. Endlessly high ceilings, I'd guess 18-20 feet high. Excellent view of the Houston skyline! Every visible area was pristine!
A note to Hotel Icon (as well as all hotels) that guests are now concerned with bed bugs. With that said, more of us (guests) are thoroughly checking the bedding and mattress for said insect. There were *no* bugs found in our room. None! However, other debris was. Housekeeping MUST pull the mattress from the wall/headboard to remove debris and vacuum. They must, as we are now looking there!
We stayed in late August 2014, suite 1210. The room rate for our suite was $499 a night. I expect all areas of the room to be clean, including behind the mattress....since we now check that spot. With the exception of behind the mattress, all areas of our suite were spotless. I was confident the room was clean.
I would stay here again and again....assuming the mattress/headboard area has been addressed.
