“Unique and Luxurious”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

As you enter the lobby of this hotel, you walk into a different era of luxury and hospitality. Take time to absorbed the architecural details from early last century that are artfully blended with clean modern lines. In the evening you are greeted at the door with ice tea and the hotel's signature spicy pecans - big, juicy halves coated in sugary cinnamon with just a hint of heat. A treat for the taste buds! Original details abound from the old fashioned elevators with clock-like dials that show from which floor the elevator is descending, to the tile in the large bathrooms. The color pallette in the rooms is relaxing. Now the biggest treat is the over-sized soaking tub. You are able to schedule a bath butler who will provide the luxury of oils and rose petals. The vanity is a long and spacious slab of marble trimmed with authentic 20's details. Room serivce is spot-on and the menu reached outside the limits of standard room service fare. Relax a little and enjoy!

Room Tip: Each floor has rooms very close to the elevator banks (numbers would be X00 and X02) - ask for a roo...

The Hotel Icon Houston is in a historic bank in a revitalizing area of downtown, which is what drew me there. The rooms are really nice and clean and the hotel staff is great. The only issue that I had was with the poor service in the restaurant. The good was good but the service was not.

The hotel is located in an old bank building. It's in the business district i suppose, since there was not a lot going on in the weekend. We got an upgrade to a suite. Very nice and spacious room, great big bathroom. We had lunch in te restaurant and this was nice too. Lobby and bar area are warm decorated. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had a great stay here.

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.
