Three Day Potty Training

A travel blog entry by birdhelen1

... also deviate to some extent dependant on the age of a youngster. This is particularly a very imperative factor for those planning to get them. Simply because overlooking the age of the child specially when starting this training is self-defeating logic. It will simply lead you to a "square dowel in a circular hole" state. It is because 3 day toilet training features akin to addressing night-time mishaps, addressing ...

Slowly Westward

Before leaving Tampa, we added further to the US's slow GDP by purchasing a new cargo rack that plugs into the trailer hitch socket. Late in the plan prior to departing from home we decided to bring Mathew’s jogger and it hung from the minivans transom which made opening
the back hatch a two-man operation. So the day started with Paula and I purchasing a rack with "some assembly required". The guys in the Pep Boys garage with several bays of lifts ...

Day 14 - Back to Houston

... flying home from Ireland the same day and were on the same flight from DC to Houston, so we met up with them in the airport. It was good to see some familiar faces and to reconnect with good friends and begin sharing stories about our trip. Our vacation was amazing and one we'll never forget! Taking two weeks to explore parts of the world we've never seen before not only helped us gain a ...

Horseriding & Thunderstorms

We had a knock on our door at 9:30am from cowboy Robert to ask if we still wanted to go horse riding. I got ready and woke the girls up. The boys had decided the night before that they weren't interested so it was just us 3.


When we got to the barn, we found Robert waiting for us and the rain to stop. We sat there for a bit and found out a bit about him. He was originally from Oklahoma and goes from ranch to ranch. He seems to like this one and he has ...

Cougar

Part of the behind the scenes tour was walking through the cat exhibits. We got to see just about all of them before heading back to the cheetahs.

Here is the cougar. And I realize this camera and I were having problems with the wire mesh. It is still new to me, but it was easier to carry than my real ...

    Hotel Icon is an ICON in the hospitality field...

    from

    I just got home to San Antonio, Texas after a relaxing stay at the Hotel Icon. I loved my stay. The room was clean, quiet AND very luxurious. Moulton Brown bath products were top of the line and I am hooked! My entire party was, and remains very impressed. From the moment Gregory greeted us at the door to the moment the valet brought the car around to leave, we were impressed. The staff remembered not only my name, but my entire party's names. They made a point to address any minor issues which arose, both efficiently and effectively.

    I HIGHLY recommend the Hotel Icon to anyone looking for anything from a romantic getaway all the way to a quickie weekend road trip.

    Restaurant great

    from

    We were downtown on Friday Aug. 13 & decided to have lunch before riding the rails to the Museum District (a great deal & no hassles with parking). I had heard about the Bank at the Icon & we stopped in there for lunch. Although it is fairly fancy, & we were in polos & khakis (everyone else was suited up), we got great service and a great meal. The $20 fixed price allows you to pick 2 out of a wide variety of items, regardless of courses (you could have 2 filets if you wanted to). I had the strip steak--one of the best I've ever had & a good-sized portion, too. Craig had the lamb chop--also delicious. My crab salad was huge, although a little bland. Craig's ravioli was housemade. And be sure to get the O-rings. All in all, a very nice time. We also toured the hotel public areas--looks like a nice place to stay the next trip!

    Hotel Icon was Great

    from

    We stayed here for our wedding night and it was perfect. The staff was incredible, we felt like royalty. We also used the spa downstairs and had wonderful massages the next morning.

    Loved the Icon

    from

    A gem in Houston's revived Downtown Main St. area. We loved the HUGE bath tub, and service was superior! Note: if you book through Hotels, the room you get is NOT the one with a bath tub (despite what the description says). The Icon staff was able to upgrade us to a bath tub room, for a fee of course, but it was well worth it!

    Excellent Hotel, Cool concept

    from

    I have stayed here twice. It is THE place to be in Houston. The hotel is a former bank building that has been delightfully converted into a luxury hotel. The hotel is lush and luxurious. Rooms are big and comfortable. Gym is awesome with all equipment done in red metal. The bar there is the hottest place in town, but the hotel is large enough that you can sleep without problem. A great concept well executed.

    Fabulous Luxary Property

    from

    We have traveled all over the world and stayed at many beautiful hotels and this is among the few whom we think has top-of-the-line service to match the style and quality of the hotel! The staff was very friendly, and Candra Scott did an amazing job with the interior decorating!

    Talk about top-of-the-line... I love Moulton Brown bath products!

    I urge you to try a hot rock massage at the spa...so relaxing!

    I can't wait to go back to Houston!

    Hotel Icon adds a lot of class to Houston!!

    from

    Hotel Icon was great!! This is the only place to stay in Houston!!! If you are looking for a experience of a live time the Hotel Icon is it!!

    Refreshing Staff

    from

    The staff is refreshingly attentive and sincere in their actions. In todays world of indifferent hotel staffs it felt really good to stay here. You can tell they enjoy what their doing!! They aniticpated my needs like the finest hotels in the world. The restaurant is absolutely amazing, even room service was timely and of the same quality as the Bank Restaurant. The rooms remind me of a luxury hotel in downtown San Francisco. This is most certainly the gem of Houston!

    Very Disappointed

    from

    This hotel has serious service problems. In my opinion it opened too quickly to garner Superbowl business and has too many kinks to name.

    The manager at the hotel bar is downright rude. Every area of the hotel is on voice mail only and no one will call you back (this includes Spa and hotel bar). Getting an event booked is a nightmare. I have gotten the distinct impression that they are not interested in local business.

    I was offended by the way they dealt with me and do not intend to give them repeat business.

    An Experience in Personal Luxury

    from

    This hotel is wonderful! From the time the valet opened my door to the time I checked out, this hotel took care of my every whim. I enjoyed the 24 hour room service, the 24 hour business center, the free high speed internet access, 27 inch flat screen tv and most importantly The Whisky Bar. I stayed Thurs. - Sun. and the weekend crowd was fabulous.
