We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Driskill Hotel. It's such a convenient location right on 6th street and just 6 blocks south of the capital building. The room was quiet on the10th floor. The bed was so comfy with silk sheets! Nice bar and a lot of nice Texan touches to the decor. We were showing our friends from... More

I first experienced the Driskill two years ago when I stopped in at their bar and tried the Batini cocktail while on a trip to Austin. This time, I made sure to stay at the hotel itself. My room was on the eighth floor and accessible only thru the upper lobby bar. That didn't bother me, but I noticed other... More

We stayed here during a recent trip to Austin. The service was superb (friendly, helpful and nice). The room served our needs - while small,we were only in town for one evening - so it was totally fine. Complimentary tea/coffee in the morning was a nice treat. Breakfast as the Cafe/Bakery was scrumptious (although pricey, but it was expected, honestly).... More

Recent purchase by Hyatt has done nothing for this hotel. They have done away with Illy coffee and the service at the bakery/café was horrible, including 45 mins for a bowl of oatmeal and a continental pastry/juice/coffee breakfast! In fact, we were trying to find our waitress to cancel when she finally delivered the bowl of oatmeal and the wrong... More

There is nothing inexpensive about this fine historic hotel in downtown Austin. Valet parking is $34 per night. Ouch! They do allow unlimited "in & out", you are on 6th street with the music scene and an easy walk from the beautiful Texas capital building. The valet guys are very prompt and courteous, so that makes the bite of the... More

Ok place. Service at front desk and valet was lacking. Room was nice but small. Public areas were pretty. Had to walk through Bar area to get to the elevator to our Room. Parking was a rip off. Would not stay here again. So many other choices in downtown. Traffic in austin is terrible.

My husband brought me to Austin for my birthday and he booked 3 nights at the Driskill. Neither one of us had ever been to Austin and didn't know much about it, let alone the Driskill. After we saw several walking tours stop by the hotel, I decided to read about it on Wikipedia and was delighted to learn of... More

We only had one night in Austin and were lucky to get a room here. The Hotel has so much atmosphere and it is right on 6th St for the music so superb location. Very comfy bed and very clean. The room was a little small but adequate for one night stop. Breakfast was good, we opted for the Continental... More

I really enjoyed staying at the Driskell. We gad the King balcony room.it wasn't too small or too large but just right. The design of the place is beautiful. I also visit the bar and the Cafe. Both were also GOOD. Customer service was great. We are looking forward to visit there again soon.
