Gorgeous historic hotel in Downtown Austin. The rooms are fine, but overpriced. Oddly, to get to the elevators that take you to your room, you must walk through the bar, which is very lively, packed and noisy on the weekend, and not a very pleasant experience to walk through with bags and, I imagine, young kids. Our room came with... More

Our group of ten enjoyed being downtown, central to many things . We like to stay in historic properties and the Driskill has lots of history. Cafe has great breakfast and the bar was welcoming. All of the staff were great.

I had an excellent stay in this hotel. It is really well located (near lost of bar & restaurants) and has a very fancy look. Historic and representative of Austin. It is a must. I would choose it again.

Myself and my sixteen year old daughter spent a lovely night here in April 2015. We arrived quite late but we were quickly checked in and given instructions on finding our room from very pleasant staff. As it was a Saturday night the hotel was very busy with lots of private functions. Our room was a "vintage" room and so... More

What a beautiful hotel! I stopped in to explore this historical landmark and fell in love with it's beauty and charm! Even if it isn't feasible to stay at the hotel please stop in for lunch or to just check it out. Very much worth it!

Terrible experience in the room that was booked well in advanced but still had no windows. It was very small and very dark. I thought it was over priced and didn't enjoy staying there at all. Bed was good and it was clean.

This is a very old home, so keep that in mind. The lobby is simply gorgeous. The restaurants are good, and I had one of the best meals in a long time in their more formal one. You can't beat the location! 6th street is where the music scene is, so if you're looking to be in the heart of... More

Spent 5 night in Austin for a wedding. First three nights we couldn't get into The Driskill. Stayed at a Hyatt Place in north Austin. So that's the benchmark for comparison. The Driskill is an experience. The famed restaurant isn't open Sunday and Monday so we missed that experience. Bar was was nice, but to go into a top rated... More

What I love most about this hotel is the historical elegance. It reminds of the great hotels I enjoy in Europe. The bar & grill are excellent, and although I'm in the heart of Austin at 6th St, I enjoy them so much I rarely venture out during my stays there. I also love that the bathrooms have excellent lighting... More

We went during Easter weekend 2015 and had a great time. We stayed at the "Yellow Rose of Texas" suite and loved the way the rooms were decorated in a historic style depicting the 1800s. The elevator could have been a little faster but hey, the hotel is very old. The service was excellent hotel wide. We especially liked the... More
