This hotel is beautiful, quirky, and fun- but the uncomfortable bed ruined our stay. We loved the look, and booked this hotel for our anniversary. The bed in room #412 (King Suite with jacuzzi) was absolutely horrible. It was lumpy and hard, and the pillows were flat with large clumps. Hands down, the worst night sleep we've ever had. I called down to the front desk to let them know, and received a "thanks for letting us know". If you're looking for a romantic getaway, this is not it. The ... Read more

I was very pleased with the Hotel ICON. It's in a very old rehabbed building very close to the baseball stadium downtown. Lots of great places to eat nearby. The vault door behind the front desk is beautiful. The old style staircases were nicely preserved and they did a great job in the lobby/bar area incorporating the buildings charm. The rooms were well appointed, bathroom huge! High ceilings and those old large lovely windows. The decor was so well done. Great bathroom amenities (love... Read more

We stayed here for our anniversary. Even though we live in Houston, we took the opportunity to be tourists in our own town.

Quick cab ride back and we were in the middle of all of the fun that is a night downtown. Everyone was extremely nice. The interior was beautiful. Good cold AC. Powerful shower. Solid night sleep.

I have been coming to this hotel for over a decade and, other than the change of name/owner of the old lobby Bank Restaurant, it has not had a single change or improvement. I like the hotel and its lively location but the rooms are extremely dark, now musty smelling, the lobby is kept very warm and the music (at breakfast!) far too loud for a business hotel. The bar in the evenings is a lively and fun spot. There is never anyone that looks to have any authority around so there is little to be... Read more

First of all, I have to admit that I didn't do much research before booking two nights at this hotel. The location is very convenient -- it is very close to the CBD, and therefore it would make a very good option for people in Houston for business. However, if you're in Houston for vacation and a getaway, think twice before booking here -- although there are many places to eat around the hotel, most of them are closed by 8pm due to its location. Even the front desk staff suggested for us to sta... Read more

This hotel caught our eye because we're into old historic buildings. We stayed only one night but the experience will last a lot longer. The hotel itself it beautiful. They left many of the features of the building from when it was a bank. I wish I could have stayed longer so I could just walk around and check out all the original construction. We stayed in a junior suite and the room was perfect. The shower was amazing having a standard shower head and another directly over your head. All staff... Read more

The hotel was fine - a charming old building, quite nice, comfortable, well situated in Houston, and with smallish, but comfortable, rooms.

She dealt with many customers, was working a very long shift, and never missed a beat. Not only that she rallied a community among the patrons at the bar. The e... Read more

Staying at the Hotel Icon was a great choice! We were within walking distance to everything we wanted to see and do. In addition, they offered a handy shuttle service free of charge. Everyone was kind and provided the type of service I'd expect or greater.

Staff friendly, Rooms very nice and clean. Brunch was excellent. Close to many places to eat and drink. Just don't eat at Batagna across the street. (Horrible). Very cool décor, the room hallways look like the movie The Shinning... very cool red doors. A former Bank in 1911 still has the vault. Ask to see the back side behind the front desk.... Elevators a original and very cool. Beautiful lobby and center bar. I would stay again....

The Autograph Collection is one of our favorite's from Marriott because we love the architecture of the the older buildings they restore. The Icon did not disappoint the building was very nice, our room was large comfortable and quiet. We booked the larger king room with jetted tub, the tub was relaxing enough and the shower was great.

The Hotel Zico is my go to hotel when I need to stay in downtown Houston. It is a total redo of a very old bank building that retains a ton of the original charm (bank vault at front desk). This time I had a large suite on the penthouse level (12th floor) and it was super posh. The ceilings are at least 12 feet, perhaps 15 and it is super spacious. The bathroom had a gigantic walk in shower and a cool tub. The service is first rate. I've stayed at the new JW Marriott also in downtown and I p... Read more

I have stayed in many hotels. This one ranks at or near the top. The staff is over the top nice and helpful. The ambiance is a bit dark for my old eyes, I felt there could have been better lighting, especially in the bathroom, but other than that, very comfortable bed and real pillows. The area is great in downtown Houston, with everything one would want to do in walking distance. Thirsty Thursday is a great deal in the dining area. The elevators are wonky, but it is an old place. Overall, a gre... Read more

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend, and we absolutely loved it. The service was wonderful from the front desk to the valet to room service. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. The hotel itself is beautiful and has so much character. The bar is great, and there are fun bars and restaurants just a short walk away. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended it to the whole weekend.

I don't really have a choice on whether to stay at this hotel or not as my company gets special rates with the ICON. I have stayed here a few times. I didn't want to write a review based on 1 stay. The staff is friendly, however the rooms are ok. You can hear the outside noise. There was construction right outside my window, literally all night. I couldn't sleep. There are very few vegetarian options at the hotel. I understand it's Houston, TX, but people come from all over and they need... Read more

I visited Houston last weekend to see my son and daughter in law, they live a few blocks from hotel ICON, so they chose that hotel for me. The Hotel has so much character and charm I loved it! my room had a king size bed, jetted bath tub, small fridge, plenty of comfort. The room was clean, I had a view of Honeymoon a great cafe across the street. I enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant which offers a delicious breakfast buffet. I will definitely stay at the ICON on my next visit!

We stayed at the Icon Hotel for one night and absolutely loved it. My other half looked high and low for a soaking tub and landed here. Not only was the tub amazing, but the shower was also humongous and the water pressure was the best I've ever had. The bed was extremely comfy and helped me get one of the best night's sleep I'd had in months. The downstairs bar also had many delicious drinks to choose from and their meal options were quite scrumptious. We will definitely stay here again if give... Read more

The Icon hotel is a well keep secret at the heart of Houston. Wonderful two story rooms with two gorgeous marble bathrooms. This hotel will take you to the grand romantic era. The living room has a great chandelier with a comfortable sofa close to the bar. Big windows with great views to the Downtown not the everyday cookie cut room that you find at the chain hotels. For business or relaxation the Icon will work for you!

While the hotel is impressive and the rooms excellent and spacious, the service levels on our five day visit were disappointing. On two of five nights our room was not made up until after 4:00 p.m., after having been out all day, and then only when we asked for it. Bed linens were not changed for several days.Service at the bar was also poor; just to place an order was an lengthy ordeal as was getting the bill - the bill couldn't be found "in the system". Food was good though. Breakfast was ade... Read more

Our stay at the Hotel Icon was short but sweet. We stayed only one night in an executive suite. The room was elegant, comfortable and spacious. The king sized bed was comfortable and luxurious. We enjoyed our short time in this great room. I need to go back and spend more time there.

Good Value on the room, Valet is over priced and drinks are super expensive. There is no free parking. You need to factor that in to you overall cost. Over all, it is a good place. The room was clean and looked good.

The Hotel Icon (Autograph Collection) is a refurbished retro themed hotel. The main lobby and lounge area has high ceilings, trendy decor, and they've kept the old bank vault door which adds a nice touch. I've only stayed here once and since it was last minute, the other rooms were booked, so I ended up getting upgraded to one of the suites (Executive Suite I think??). I have to say, it was one of the best rooms I've stayed in and had a separate living room area, arched passageways, and about... Read more

This last weekend (11/11/16-11/13/16) was at least our tenth stay at The Hotel ICON. Needless to say, we love this hotel. In addition to what you would normally expect from a nicer than average hotel (great beds, large bathroom/shower, clean rooms and public areas, really good food and drink, and very friendly and courteous staff), the thing we really like about The Hotel ICON is how quiet it is. You can actually get a good night's sleep without being awakened by noisy people walking down the ha... Read more

I really do It is part of the Marriott group but it has a more boutique feel. It is a conversion from a bank and the old vault door is a feature at reception which is already something out of the ordinary The hotel has the Line&Lariat bar and restaurant and, while I have not eaten at the restaurant, I have used the large, circular, bar, which has always been staffed by friendly, knowledgable tenders The reception staff are equally friendly and helpful, eager to make your stay as hassle free ...
