As a surprise for my wife, we stayed here. We were treated well. The lobby is impressive. As is the mezzanine. The rooms were freshly renovated. The staffed remembered our names immediately. Every detail they handled w expertise. It was truly a pleasant stay.

Loved every bit of staying in this hotel! The history, the ambiance, the staff, the perfect stay when going to downtown Austin. The hotel bar has great food and drinks with great music at night. The cafe was exceptional in the morning.

Quite simply a beautiful place to stay. The Driskill is steeped in history and character. We stayed in two rooms and were impressed with both. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Even the in-room dining was a pleasant surprise, reasonable and delicious. Couldn't recommend this place any more highly.

The hotel is really nice looking, in a great location and overpriced. They charge you $38 for parking, and no free breakfast. Stay at Embassy Suites, and they have a happy hour and a full free breakfast.

Great location to Tru Luck - a lovely classy restaurant a few blocks away and just around the corner from all the action on 6th street - bars with great music. The bar in the hotel was lovely, busy with music. Starbuck is... More

The Driskill is a beautiful, historic building in itself but then throw in the fabulous hotel that is houses and you are set for success! The rooms are smaller than most "modern day" hotels due to the age of the building but you won't mind because they are comfortable and well appointed. The beds are so comfortable and the location...

We enjoyed a short stay and there is not one complaint. The room was spotlessly clean, the beds comfortable, and the room was quiet and pleasant. The staff could not have been more helpful, polite, and friendly. The overall, environment is what I love in old hotels; grand, beautiful furnishings, soaring ornate ceilings, and staff that wants to please.
