We just stopped in to check it out. They had bloody Mary bar set up that morning. Fantastic! almost enough there to be a meal. I would love to go back and stay there. The vaulted ceilings, stained glass, and antique furnishings make this place a palace.

My husband and I stayed at The Driskill for my birthday weekend getaway in June. I wish I had written this review sooner and could provide a fresher review. The hotel is on the quieter part of Sixth street. As it is a historic hotel, the room was smaller and decent, but needed some updating. The service was good. We... More

We've stayed here before. That experience was great. This time we decided to stop by and have a cocktail. Yes, it was busy. Yes, we were polite patrons. No, we didn't get great service. Pretty disappointed. Especially since we raved to our friends, how much we loved the place. Doesn't take away from its history or atmosphere. We'll be back.... More

First visit to Austin, family reunion with huge expectations, and the Driskill did not disappoint. Great amenities and downtown location. Staff were courteous and willing to please. One disappointment was the bar. Waitress was slow and no beers on tap. I understand there was an issue with the taps. But we were there 5 days and it never seemed to... More

From the valet, to the bellmen, to the front desk, to the bar/restaurant, the people are friendly and helpful in a very gracious, Texas manner. The common areas, i.e. lobby, bar, restaurant are beautiful. The bar especially exudes that one-of-a-kind Texas charm and ambience. Excellent food, great bar and live local music are just part of the allure. If in... More

Located in the heart of Austin, the Driskill exudes the character of the early days of Texas when big oil and cattle drives made fortunes for those adventurous enough to live on the frontier. The architecture of the hotel is unique with a flare that is both comfortable and beautiful. While the rooms are smaller than the typical modern luxury... More

This is my second review ever on Trip Advisor. The first was to warn people about the hotel I checked out of tonight as it was AWFUL. The second is to recognize The Driskill Hotel which I checked into tonight. I commend the staff members in that they created an exceptional experience. I cancelled my hotel reservation due to filth... More

This hotel has a great location in the middle of downtown Austin. Rooms are a bit on the small side, but beautifully modernized, hotel building itself is full of old Texas charm. The restaurant is very reasonably priced (okay, we're from NYC), and we absolutely loved the bar. The only reason this does not have a resounding five stars is... More
