This was a great hotel, it's a gorgeous building and the staff was professional. 5 stars in my opinion. The breakfast buffet was very good. I lover the free shuttle service within 3 miles as well. All the staff were professional and dressed in nice uniforms. This made me feel like I was some where worth while.

Great place for a weekend in Houston with the spouse or friends. Helpful staff and near the light rail line. Wonderfully restored building and rooms. Valet parking only. Huge ground floor lobby that is well-appointed and features a bar. This is a former bank.

Also, I watched Penn State win, had a great football conversation, had food in my presence without hardly asking, and felt welcomed by a bartender who...

A unique, interesting hotel. Captures the history and Texas culture while having modernized the essentials. Great downtown location. Friendly and very professional staff. Favorite part: the elevators.

Hotel Icon in downtown Houston is a lovely hotel that was renovated from a bank to boutique accommodations. The lobby is comfortable and inviting. The staff members were all gracious and helpful. I was there for a conference. The meeting rooms were comfortable and appropriate, and the meals and snacks were delicious. My only complaint is the very poor lighting...
