“Lovely hotel centrally located in downtown Houston.”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

My friends and I stayed in this lovely hotel on a Saturday night. Having had tickets to the theater, this hotel was just minutes away from the theater and good eating establishments. Very clean and spacious rooms but what was exceptionally nice was the size of the bathroom! I highly recommend it. Staff was courteous and friendly.

I go to Houston every year in July for their fabulous Gilbert and Sullivan production. Over the years, I've tried a number of nearby hotels, but I prefer the Hotel Icon. The rooms are very tastefully done. The bathrooms are good sized and the ones that feature bathtubs are great for a nice soak after a long drive. The hotel has a shuttle I could use to take to the theater district, but since it can't be reserved and is first come, first served, you can't be certain that it will be available. Not to worry, though the walk to the theater is easy and seems safe, especially if you stick to streets with a lot of people hanging out in sidewalk cafes, like Texas Ave. The breakfast buffet was good, but the coffee was dreadful.

Stayed here for a business trip and loved it. Great atmosphere, beautiful clean rooms, great bathroom I actually took a picture of as inspiration for a someday home bathroom remodel. Decent food in the restaurant and bar. And they have the cutest rubber duckies in the rooms! :). Looking forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: Book well in advance... Have had trouble getting rooms booking last minute.

This hotel is amazing. Let's start with the accommodations which are splendid. We stayed in a standard room, 2 queen and it was very spacious, well decorated, and just luxurious. The bathroom is spectacular, not a whole in the wall, it has a large enclosed shower, huge soaking tub ... My husband is 6'3 and soaked comfortably in the tub! We did not eat much at the hotel, but we did the breakfast buffet and it was great, for ~$18 there is a large assortment including an omlette and waffle bar, smoothie bar, and then the traditional stuff. The staff were all very friendly and helpful with any questions that we had and were very accommodating to checkin/checkout request times. The only change I would make is to extend the range of the shuttle with is only within 3mi of the hotel, but for us this was not a deal breaker. We would definitely stay here again.

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. Some of the best rooms I have ever stayed in in any hotel in the U.S.A. The only drawback is it is a bit overpriced for the area...their food and beverage while everything tasted great was at least 3 or 4.00 over priced on average. Absolutely a great hotel to stay at and will go again when given the chance.

Loved its classic elegance and style, the large tub and shower and the cordial, accommodating staff. The shuttle to Minute Maid Park where I worked for four days was an unexpected and welcome convenience. I left a book and a Father's Day card behind after I checked out, and they were kind enough to retrieve it and FedEx it to my home. If I travel to Houston again next year, this property will be my top choice to stay.

I took a friend of mine here for her birthday! I let the hotel know about the special occasion and they pulled out all the stops. The concierge services provided by the front desk were sensational. We also used the spa there and enjoyed the rooms. It was elegant and pristine, well worth the money. The food served at the hotel was great and they also were able to organize an outing for my friend. They worked with the staff at Vic and Anthony's and it was incredible. I would recommend this hotel to others and I am excited to return to this fine hotel. This is a service gem hidden in the heart of downtown Houston!!!!

Room Tip: Be sure to book your spa appointment. Do not miss the chance to be pampered.
