Houston, Texas (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Houston’s Hotel ICON, the first and currently only Texas hotel in Marriott’s Autograph Collection, is celebrating its majestic home’s 100th anniversary and the completion of a multi-million-dollar renovation with an exclusive deal.
Now through September 29, 2012, guests can make out like a bandit and book a Friday or Saturday night stay in the former Union National Bank building for only $100, excluding tax, in honor of the building’s centennial. The “100 for $100” package offers a rare guest opportunity for a hotel in the Autograph Collection, a global portfolio of strikingly independent, unique, luxury hotels.
Hotel ICON first debuted in 2004 following a painstaking reinvention of 220 Main, a landmark in the downtown historic district and one of the country’s earliest steel and concrete skyscrapers. Built in 1912 for one of the greatest financial institutions in Texas, the neo-classical building features an imposing brick and Bedford limestone facade adorned with intricately carved Corinthian columns and keystones depicting Hermes, the Greek god of trade, commerce and good fortune.
This month, the hotel formally debuts LINE & LARIAT Restaurant and L&L Bar, highlighting cocktails and cuisine with a Texas flair, in addition to unveiling an enhanced entrance and new look throughout its guestrooms and public spaces. The design further emphasizes the property’s sense of place and dazzling turn-of-the-century architectural details.
“With this special opportunity, we invite guests to have a relaxing stay and make themselves at home in LINE & LARIAT while experiencing our recent renovation and rich history,” said Brad McCreedy, General Manager.
