Well, if you like the more boutique/unique aspects of the Autograph Collection(*), you might want to check out the Downtown Houston ICON.
IAH isn't way out of town, well at least not for those who live here!!!
Thanks for the review, we're go to see Elton John and was not sure about the Icon or not as we usually stay at the CY Downtown which is a short walk to Toyota Center, but I may have to change my hotel for that night. Can't be driving up past the way out of town airport to get home some 20 miles past that point!!!
