The service and staff where great and the location could not be beat. It is a beautiful piece of Texas history which also means quirky elevators and smaller, and in our case, odd shaped rooms. It should be noted that the fantastic location comes with noise. If you are looking for a quite oasis, this is not the place for... More

It was my favorite in Austin and now I'll have to reconsider my choice. The Driskill's service leaves a lot to be desired. They were a top-notch hotel and my first choice in Austin, but my last stay was not the best. I did not receive a mini-bar key when I checked in. The a/c unit in my room was... More

It is a piece of history but along with it comes dated small rooms. Lack of electrical outlets for devices (had to unplug lights to plug in devices); old switches and fans in the bathroom; no coffee maker in room (coffee is in the lobby though), bed was ok. The lobby and lounge is great looking though I didn't hang... More

Gorgeous hotel, stunning atmosphere, and a true piece of Texas history! The service was fantastic and the room was perfect! Lush and comfortable, the bed was one of the most comfortable (if not THE most comfortable) bed I have ever slept on! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Driskill! Some even say its haunted...there's a little brochure of spooky... More

I've stayed at the Driskill before about 7 years ago and decided to stay again this past weekend. I reserved a Senate room and they put me on the 6th floor...room 601. If you get that room...rum! I should have asked to be moved but I was so I tired when I checked in. The room is right by the... More

My friend and I stayed here for SXSW. The hotel is stunning. Rooms are spacious with plush beds. Hotel staff is very friendly. Location was adjacent to nightlife on sixth street. Would definetly stay here again.

I checked in with two 14 year olds and my 24 year old niece. We were hoping for adjoining rooms but none were available so the front desk clerk went through several options with me. I wish I could remember his name because he was very creative in finding just the right solution for us. We ended up in the... More

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful hotel. The atmosphere was so nice it felt like we were back to 19 century. The bed room was very comfortable with modern bathroom. The service was great and the staff was very friendly. I would go back to this hotel again.

We arrived on a Saturday and were pleased to be able to check in a little bit early, which was a relief as we were there to attend a wedding that was starting at 5:30 and we needed time to finish getting dressed. My mother had arrived about 30 minutes ahead of us and had to check her bags with... More

Very good Hotel in Austin TX. Service was excellent. Very active bar scene, Rooms large and comfortable. Room 306 bathroom tile needs service, old and appears to have a number of old mold/mildew stains, fans very noisy. I was offered a mini bar key in my check in, I declined it. When I checked out I was told there were... More
