Hotel ICON Hotel Review: A $5 million renovation redefined this landmark --- 1911’s Union Bank building --- as a modern Texas experience with a strong sense of Houston history. Guests can mosey on in to the Line & Lariat restaurant and bar, the centerpiece of Hotel ICON’s lobby. Displaying vestiges of the building's bank origins, this dining venue offers regionally inspired fare and modern Texas cuisine. Guests can also stake a claim to one of nine penthouse suites, including the only two- and three-story accommodations in the city; the three-story Ritz Suite even has a private 600-square-foot roof terrace viewing the heart of downtown’s historic district. From this property you’re a short walk from the Theater District, Discovery Green, Minute Maid Park and the city’s founding at Allen’s Landing. There is also easy access to hiking and biking trails along Buffalo Bayou, where canoeing and kayaking are offered. You’re also directly on the METRORail line, with access to the Museum District and Reliant Center. As the only Texas hotel in Marriott’s new Autograph Collection, Hotel ICON boasts ownership that includes NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson and has hosted such guests as Rihanna, Cindy Crawford and the Jonas Brothers. Along with gracious but unfussy service, the hotel is pet-friendly, with access to a pet park in adjacent Market Square. Wi-Fi is free and the 24/7 fitness center is exceptional for a hotel this size.
