Our History

There are few hotels in Houston that speak eloquently to the rich history of our celebrated city as Hotel ICON does. Its very name evokes ICONโ€™s legendary presence in a bold urban landscape built by men whose imaginations were inspired within our very corridors.

Originally constructed to house one of the stateโ€™s most prominent financial institutions at the time, the Union National Bank, the building was erected in 1911 by renowned architectural firm Mauran, Russell & Crowell. At 12 stories, it was one of the nationโ€™s first concrete and steel skyscrapers. The firmโ€™s neoclassical concept for the structure was a marvelous nod to Grecian design: classic Corinthian columns span the exterior and decorative keystones feature the god Mercury, the Roman god of commerce (and trickery). Thirty-foot Doric columns line the interior. From the very beginning, the magnificent building was a stunning homage to the entrepreneurial spirit of Houston.

The building soon became a magnet for an impressive list of illustrious tenants, including Jesse H. Jones, architect John Staub, international construction firm Brown and Root, and law firm Fulbright & Jaworksi. For 35 years, it was also home to the first investment banking firm in Texas, Neuhaus & Co.

In 2004, this historic landmark was restored and transformed into Hotel ICON. The building retained its distinguished Bedford limestone and brick facade while sporting a lustrous new interior created by the San Francisco-based design firm, Candra Scott and Anderson. In 2012, the interior was refreshed and revitalized to capture the contemporary energy of Houstonโ€™s invigorating modern urban atmosphere and provide an even more genuine Texas experience.
