Travel: From Bank to Bed Houston’s Finest Historic Hotel

While researching the most unique hotels in Houston, I stumbled across Hotel Icon, a Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel.

Previously the 1911 Union National Bank of Houston, Hotel Icon is full of charm and glam. This gem is located in the heart of downtown and its historic characteristics like the bank’s original vault are a must-see! The original vault, down to its inner gears, is exciting to see. It is now used for staff offices.

The hotel’s renovation was introduced in 2004 and updated in 2011. This 12-story hotel’s neoclassical architecture and modern design is the perfect enhancement to this historic bank.

Honoring the building’s history, the hotel has a few historic items from the bank such as deposit boxes, keys, and deposit slips on display!

Riley and I stayed in a junior suite and it was extremely spacious and luxurious! This suite was equipped with a king-size bed, lounge sofa, walk-in rain shower, and even jetted jacuzzi bathtub!

Hotel Icon is perfectly placed with access to the Museum District, the Texas Medical Center, and even George Brown Convention Center.

Next time you’re in downtown Houston, book your stay at Hotel Icon. We highly recommend it! If you’re living in the Houston area, Hotel Icon is the perfect staycation not too far from home.
