Really enjoyed the uniqueness of this hotel and its location. Very pretty inside, rooms are large, clean and friendly staff. Visited this hotel twice; once in the summer of 2014 and then in November of 2014 for my sisters wedding. Love Houston!

Beautiful interior, good location, great water pressure in shower. Courteous staff. Unfortunately, three times I had to go downstairs to get my keys reprogrammed to open the door. My colleague, couldn't get a cab and struggled to get his internet going. On a short trip, these are major bogies. Sorry

From inside my room at the Hotel Icon it was difficult to believe that outdoors it was 80 degrees. The air conditioning at the Hotel Icon was so cold that I needed a sweater indoors. Water from the cool air formed on the windows, making it difficult to enjoy the view. The only way I found to lessen the air...

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to bring these issues to our attention. I am terribly sorry about the AC experience you had in your room. Although we do prefer to keep our hallways cool to gear up for the Houston summers, this is not something we do in guest rooms and should be up to the guest...

We stayed in this Hotel during a trip around Texas. The first thing you can see is the impressive Hotel entrance. A big hall, very well decorated and furnished. Really stylish. But also the rooms are very well designed and decorated. The room we got was rather small. But I have to say we got a special rate which was...

Stayed just for a night. The ambience once you entered the hotel are pretty welcoming with magnificent designs. It has this vintage rustic elevator which caught my eyes, though it is not that spacey, it was pretty ok. One thing though, the a/c in our room was pretty noisy. Didn't file a complaint as we thought it would only be...

This is a fantastic downtown hotel. The architecture is amazing. Our room was very clean and so nice! Love the design of the bathrooms. We enjoyed walking down Main Street. You can catch a Metro train right close to the hotel. Definitely will stay here again.

This is a cute hotel that feels really unique and boutique. The rooms were great, and it is a good location for downtown. It's across the street from some good restaurant and bar locations. I would definitely stay here again.

Had trouble finding good downtown hotel due to a competing energy conference but very fortunate to find Icon. Have stayed in 4&5 star hotels in most major cities in U.S. as well as Europe & Asia & Icon was right up there with the best. Renovated bank which now very luxuriously serves as a quality luxurious hotel
