Jairo was so very helpful and kind the entire time. The rest of the staff was friendly but he went above and beyond our expectations. From valet to taking our luggage to our room to getting us ice, retrieving our truck from valet, reloading our luggage into it, he was professional and friendly.

Every morning I was greeted with a friendly smile and great breakfast service by Jose. He was attentive to everyone every morning. In the evening Jairo and Jennifer were wonderful and fun bartenders. They were always smiling, attentive and the sangria is the best! This is a quaint hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is BEAUTIFUL. I stayed here recently for a business trip and would definitely return. The staff was extremely professional and polite. The lobby and bar have a great vintage look and the food was delicious. Every night I would go down to the bar with a coworker and Jennifer who tended the bar was amazing. She showed us a old leather book containing the history of the building. The drinks were delicious!

If you love historical buildings,this charming hotel in an old bank from 1911. Front desk staff very helpful. Tai was a great resource and answered all of our questions about the area. The bed was perfect with lots of pillows to choose from. The bathroom in our suite was bigger than our bathroom at home. Even though we were downtown, and our room faced two major streets, we didn’t hear the noise from the streets or cars.

Room Tip: Just use the valet parking. There are other lots around, but they don’t have overnight parking...

Some of the very nicest people at the bar with Jennifer, Jamar, and the other sweet women, and I’m so sorry I do not remember her name. Also, the food was good, the drinks were good, and we felt very welcomed. The food was also good, but I really appreciated how we were received at the bar. I will come back here for any future Houston trips.

Hotel ICON was amazing hotel. Everyone was so polite and professional. Everyone seem to enjoy providing great service. I and my wife stayed the weekend for our 24th wedding anniversary. Valets were exceptional prompt and courtesy, and I like to thank Jairo who was so responsive and friendly. The hotel staff was also incredible, I asked for extra towels and to have the Kerig coffee maker repaired , which appears it was my operating error, but I was impressed by how quickly the hotel responded, I had a hotel staff in my room in less than two minutes. Room service was wonderful and I highly recommend Sunday brunch at Line & Lariat. I recommend get a room with a hot tub and view of downtown Houston! David Romero

This place is atrocious. I stayed here on and off all month long for work. I found bugs in the couches, the beds, and even in the fruit at the breakfast buffet. The staff did not care. The rooms are not clean, with dust on the counters, and housekeepers do a lousy job. One of my first nights I came back to pee in my toilet that was left behind by a housekeeper, I assume. They had a person come up and clean my bathroom again, that was all. The pipes are not maintained either. I understand this is an old building but the sinks were always clogged and would drain slowly, and the shower and toilet made very loud noises when used. Some rooms come with a robe, some don't? The ironing boards are rusty and barely usable. The furniture and curtains/drapes are all made of fabric and very old, with large stains that make you not want to use them. The elevators are also glaringly old, almost inconvenient with their slow speed. I am giving 3 stars for service only because their room service staff is very kind, helpful, and prompt. I would not say the same for the front desk staff. Not sure how this is a four star hotel.

We had a great stay at the icon with 4 other friends styaing at the same hotel. when we checked in valet and front desk were swamped and yet they all had geniune smile and excellence for helping the guests. I want to thank the valet jairo and ramiro for helping us many times this weekend. front desk holly and tia were amazing. I and my husband work in service industry as well and love to point out when good service is given. There was manager at the hotel around 4pm on saturday let me just tell you all. He fixed like 5 issues in span of our check in time with other guests which he did not know were our friends. He is a GEM for Hotel Icon. we wanted to buy him a drink, he graciously declined, instead he gave us breakfast voucher's under our room door with a lovely note.

Ramiro and the other guys at the valet parking were great. Quick to have your car ready and very friendly interactions! They always opened the door for my wife and I, and we always looked forward to seeing their friendly faces when returning to the hotel!
