When I say old world I mean early 1900's. It's an old bank converted to a hotel. They provide complementary limo for pickup and drop off at any place within 10 blocks of the hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I appreciate that kind of service, it's hard to find these days. The bedroom was spacious and so was the bath. I love a soak and the tub here was big enough for two. There was a shower too, it could fit 4, if necessary. All in all, I would go back for a stay, it was within walking distance to downtown attractions and metro.

Room Tip: Just ask when making the reservation.

The Hotel Icon is in a beautifully renovated heritage building. My room featured a very spacious bathroom with a large walk-in shower and separate tub. I found the facilities perfect for business travel although any traveler would appreciate the free and dependable wi-fi connection, larger than average fitness center, and location close to a variety of restaurant choices. The hotel sits on the north edge of downtown near Buffalo Bayou (there is a great jogging trail here with beautiful views of the city skyline) and offers a free shuttle for short trips within a 2-3 mile radius - this will be plenty to get you anywhere you need to go in downtown Houston.

The beautiful hotel combined with an incredible staff made our stay exceptional! Kudos to Diana who exemplifies outstanding service! Thanks for a memorable stay! There are several great restaurants/bars/jazz bar walking distance from the hotel - it was fun to go to each for a drink and appetizer.

I stay at this hotel EVERY time I am in Houston, and if the service and accommodations aren't great enough, just the whole VIBE of this place always makes me so happy and comfortable. The hotel is an old bank, I think, but they've done such a cool thing in renovating it to be modern, while still maintaining the classic feel of the old structure.

I always just stay in a regular one-bed room... and my room always has a beautiful view of downtown Houston and it's QUIET and that nice chilly hotel feeling that makes you want to lay in a warm bed all day!! Haha!

If you are in Houston on vacation or business or whatever... stay here. It's a Marriott, so you can get some great hotel points, and it's in the perfect location. Easy valet to get out and access to the highway. I'll stay here as long as it remains....

Room Tip: Higher floor is quieter. Even the one-bed rooms are big and have a couple of chairs for guests.

Stayed here one night on business. What a beautiful hotel in the heart of Houston. It has great charm. Very old school, historical look and feel yet modern amenities. A great lobby restaurant and bar. Super comfortable bed and linens and huge bathroom.

This place is a winner. You should stay here!

The hotel has a beautiful, inviting lobby with bar area serving great food. My room was very large, comfortable and thoughtfully designed, with an exceptional bathroom including a spacious shower with water cannon strength pressure. The design of the hotel includes many interesting and tasteful references to the local culture and history. Lastly, the staff is great - thanks Rita for help navigating to the rodeo!
