My daughters and I spent two nights in this lovely hotel. The building was a bank and has been carefully restored. The decor is fabulous. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and gorgeous, especially the bathroom that included a large tub and separate walk-in shower. Keep in mind that there is only valet parking but the...

Interesting small hotel in the Marriott chain "Autograph" collection. Main floor is an old classic bank complete with a legacy vault door, massive pillars and arched bronze windows. Rooms seem to all feature a jetted tub but are a bit on the small size, On the other hand, bathroom was enormous and the shower was remninicent of a driving tropical...

I was supposed to stay at another hotel in Houston and they messed up my reservation. I found Hotel Icon on the web and was able to book a room at the last minute. The hotel is in an old bank building but they have resorted it into a great historic site with fantastic hotel rooms. The general manager was...

I never would have expected to find such a cool hotel in the Marriott family. Housed in an historic bank building (check out the original vault behind the front desk!), this is the best of "old meets new." Loved: the period details, the "only in Texas" touches (lots of bull and cow artwork - including the bull's head towel towel...

I only stayed here one night, but everything about this property from the initial greeting by the valet, the front desk staff, housekeeping etc. was exceptional. The room was large with comfortable beds, a Keurig coffee maker and comfortable beds. The bathroom was also large and impressive. The double glazed windows made the room soundproof and even though the room...

We booked one night at the Icon for an overnight stay to attend the Rodeo & concert. The hotel is absolutely fabulous & the décor is amazing. Breakfast buffet was served in the lobby & the metro rail runs right outside the front door & will take you right to the parking lot of the stadium. Rooms were very comfortable...

I booked the hotel for one night as part of an evening at the symphony. Easy to find, close to Jones Hall, and directly across from a great tapas restaurant (Batanga). I paid in full ahead of time, so check-in was a breeze. The Front Desk clerk told me the building originally was a bank (which explains the huge vault...

Beautiful hotel. Location is great for downtown events. The room was perfect and the bathroom spacious. The staff was very welcoming with one exception. We were told they provided a shuttle and we used it to get to the restaurant for dinner. We called the number on the card to return to the hotel and the driver never came. He...

Thanks EZomega for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed our hotel and enjoyed our spacious bathrooms, as well as our historic feel. Hotel ICON used to be a bank from the early 1900's, and a lot of the architectural details from that time are still intact. Please come back and see us again!

My husband and I both travel for a living, so when a hotel makes as grand an impression as Hotel Icon does, they are definitely doing everything right. We checked in on Sunday afternoon, just about 12:30. There was a lot going on in the lobby with guests checking out, but the staff was quickly able to make change for...
