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. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, The rooms were amazing and just as nice as the rest of the hotel. We got the junior suite and... More

I travel to Houston a lot for my job and my company has negotiated a preferred rate with the ICON so I have limited choices on where I can stay in Houston. The good: I love the hotel's architecture and history. The front desk people are always wonderful. The valet parking attendants are pleasant and always on the ball. The... More

I really enjoy the decor, feel, and service at the Icon. I like that it is a small hotel with a small hotel feel. The rooms are great, location is not bad, and the front desk service is always top notch. The bar service is usually great, but is the only area which I sometimes experience less that great service... More

Located just blocks from Minute Maid Park (Go Astros!) and steps from the light rail, Hotel Icon is a fantastic location for anyone who wants to experience the best of Houston life. The hotel itself is beautiful and serene; I was half-convinced that I was the only guest on my floor except for the occasional sounds of doors shutting down... More
