What a great place to get away. Onsite bar/lounge, bakery, and on famous 6th street. Loved the bakery, great quiet place for a bite. The bar setup with live music was just so Austin, if a luxury cruise could sail out of Austin they'd copy this lounge. A few blocks from the state capital and a few blocks from the... More

The Driskill Hotel has a great location if you are going to be walking around 6th street. They have a very nice bar upstairs, which is a little pricey if you just want to have a beer. The air conditioning and fans in the room take a little getting used to, as they are loud and the vent was blowing... More

Beautiful classic hotel with a great central, downtown location. Pros: Easy check-in with a very cheerful staff. Liked that the desk person showed us on a give-away map places nearby to see and eat. The room was very nice, comfortable, clean and noise-free. Could use attention: The air conditioner was a bit noisy, but not so much that it disturbed... More

The Driskill Hotel is pure perfection!! The staff and service is beyond perfect, their attention to detail and your personal experience is stellar. The location is perfect as well, the food is to die for.

I booked a business trip to Austin and was excited to stay at this historic hotel - got a great rate and it's right in the middle of the action downtown. Unfortunately, my experience didn't live up to the hype for a few reasons: 1) I was woken up at 4am on the last morning of my stay when the... More

Nice place, house keeping got gripped at for being slow. Left room for 4 hrs, no house keeping, back 5 minutes, they show up, hey we're leaving in 10, come back then, we left, back 2 hours later, THEY show up 5 minutes after we got back! Other than that, nice place.

The property that is The Driskill really is an experience on its own. The minute you walk in, the high ceilings and ornate, pre-historic decor takes you back to another era. The lounge at the hotel is always buzzing and though it may be hard to find a table, I highly recommend having a cocktail or two there. Saturday mornings,... More

Greetings from The Driskill G_Monaco86, Thank you for sharing your observations throughout your recent stay with us. It's truly a wonderful and charming hotel that celebrated it's 129th birthday this past December. The Bloody Mary bar is one of a kind and something for all to experience whenever possible. It's a full meal in itself. We cannot wait to see... More

Met a coworker and her husband here for cocktails and food. Great popcorn and great service! We had truffle popcorn and chicken flat bread. My coworker lives in Austin and this was her 1st choice for showing me around. A nice place for couples and business.

I liked my stay here. The building and history are very appealing. The rooms were pretty standard in the tower although others at my meeting reported having amazing room. If I was in Austin I would stay here again. The location is fantastic being right in the area with all the good places to eat.

Walking into the lobby is an experience. It's an architectural gem. Old fashioned but in perfect shape. Check in was a breeze, my room was big, bright and had 18 foot ceilings. The view would have been great if Austin had a skyline worth looking at. It was a cold week and the heater struggled but kept the room warm.... More
