The ICON is a nice hotel in a beautifully renovated bank building. The old building details are everywhere but the hotel has a very upscale vibe to it. The rooms are very nicely done with lots of room with details and furnishings that are not "typical upscale hotel". The bathroom, in particular was beautifully done and the shower is huge... More

We strongly believe this is one of the best hotels in Houston. We have stayed here twice for a weekend getaway. The rooms are humongous and quiet. The bathrooms are amazing. The staff is friendly and accommodating. You have the light rail right around the corner, bars\ restaurants across the street. Highly recommend to anyone.

Decent hotel with good sized rooms in downtown Houston. Breakfast was inclusive and an okay spread commensurate with American buffets. Hotel also provided complimentary snacks and tea/coffee. For its category I think it was worth the stay. Reception staff and valet were especially welcoming.

We stayed here for one night after a long return flight from Asia and it was great. The room had plenty of space. The staff was very friendly. The location was awesome. We were in the downtown area and walking distance from bars and restaurants.

I got a great rate at the Icon and the room I got more than exceeded my expectations. They upgraded me upon arrival to a King Suite and I was disappointed I only had two nights there. The bathroom alone was worth the price. An odd thing happened during the stay. Upon leaving the room one afternoon, the door wouldn't... More

The ICON is the kind of place that as soon as you step in the lobby, you know you made the right decision. The staff is friendly and the rooms are spacious and clean. And to top it all off, one is only steps away for a great number of dining and nightlife venues. Highly recommend for all kinds of... More

We stayed at the ICON a couple nights while some work was being done on our house. Great downtown Houston location. Walking distance to all of the sports venues, many restaurants & bars, theaters, Market Square, Discovery Green, the convention center, etc. Also, on the light rail line, so easy to get to the medical center or NRG stadium. Nicely... More

We love to stay in older restored Hotels and this is a great place! Formerly a bank (downstairs in the lobby), the large room and bathroom we stayed in was beautiful!! It appears to be of another era, but is immaculate and very clean. We will definitely stay again!!

We stayed here to go an Astro's and Rangers game over the weekend. The decor and ambiance of the hotel when we came in was beautiful. It was like stepping back in time.
