  5. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: Center: Bank of America. Its red Napoleon granite came from Sweden. It contains a building within a building. Because the telegraph cables of Houston’s Western Union headquarters couldn’t be relocated, the Bank of America Center had to be built around it. The building can still be seen, fully intact, inside the skyscraper’s lobby. View the full article

  7. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: The Mural on the ceiling of the first floor lobby was painted by commercial artist Daniel MacMorris of Kansas City. The mural depicts industry, culture, law and municipal administration in Houston. In one panel a man appears to be wearing a Confederate officer's uniform under his cape. Colors of dusty pink, saffron and rosy red were used to blend with the marble and the soft lighting in the lobby. The centerpiece of the mural is a plaster relief of the Western hemisphere, with the star of Houston in the center. The relief is surrounded by the signs of the zodiac. www.houstontx.gov/abouthouston/cityhallhistory.html View the full article

  9. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: One of the most iconic murals in the city of Houston. Mario Figueroa Jr., also known as GONZO247, is the man behind the famous downtown mural. The mural is the result of Greater Houston Convention and Business Bureau's "Houston Is Inspired" initiative to highlight Houston's culinary and art scene. The mural is a representation of the diversity of the city. As per the artist: these patterns are abstract butterfly wings. Essentially, all the energy from people and all the cultures, we all create the city. And working together, we are what gives Houston that lift - those wings. View the full article
  10. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: The focal point of Hotel ICON is the full floor lobby, which is punctuated original architectural elements that include turn-of-the-century ironwork, egg and dart moldings and two rows of Doric columns, soaring nearly 30 feet. Hotel ICON initially debuted in 2004, following a $35-million, two-year repurposing and painstaking refurbishment of the 1912 Union National Bank building, which had remained vacant and in a state of near disrepair for more than two decades prior. One of the earliest steel and concrete skyscrapers in the country, the 12-story structure was designed in the neo-classical style by the St. Louis firm of Mauran, Russell & Crowell. www.visithoustontexas.com/listings/hotel-icon/19743/ View the full article
  11. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: The view at the Lobby Bar with a massive art piece of a blue and gold world map, which is placed right behind the bar. Up close the artwork definitely has a Van Gogh feel to it. :) The Hilton Americas-Houston was opened in 2003 and since then has served as one of the premier hotels in Downtown Houston. It is located right next door to the Toyota Center (home of the Rockets) and the George R. Brown Convention Center (which is connected via two skywalks). View the full article
  12. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: Throughout the lobby, hallways, and even inside some guest rooms, the original iron support beams have been uncovered and made a central design feature as a nod to the hotel’s history. Made by the same workers who built the Brooklyn Bridge, the workers’ original stamp is still visible on some of the supports. JW Marriott, Houston Downtown View the full article
  13. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: The 13-foot griffin — a mythological creature that is half eagle and half lion — was created over 950 hours by Dallas sculptor Oldham out of bronze and steel and weighs 1,500 pounds. The wings theatrically extend through the structure of the building and sweep majestically out from the exterior structure. JW Marriott, Houston Downtown View the full article
  14. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: From all four streets which border the park (Milam, Preston, Travis, and Congress) those lovely mosaic adorned benches can be seen and enjoyed. There is a thin sheet of water running over those round mosaic ornamented fountain. Texas artist Malou Flato created them. View the full article
