Recently my wife and I stayed at the Driskill for a couple of nights. We rented a car and for about $30/day, decided to take advantage of the valet parking. Upon entering the hotel we were greeted by a friendly staff as we made our way directly to the check in counter. Check in was easy. Our room was very... More

The room was pretty small for a Texas hotel (think New York sized hotel rooms). That's not much to complain about since there was ample room to work and the bed is super comfortable. I did order room service, which arrived exactly on time each day. The service in the bar was pretty slow, but it was also a pretty... More

I consult trip advisor on a regular basis and feel guilty for not having contributed up to this point..... and even more guilty that it's a negative review that has prompted me to.....

I am a bit tardy with this review, but my extraordinary experience at the Driskill requires some kudos to the hotel and staff. We had reserved a one-night stay at the Driskill on the way back from San Antonio, just as Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast, leaving us stranded in Austin. Now, if one is going to be a... More

Be careful! They have a 30 day cancellation policy. We called today 3 days in advance of arrival, just one day after making our reservation and found out we missed the fine print about their 30 day cancellation policy. This is totally out of sync with the travel industry.

We appreciate your feedback, we typically offer a 48 hour cancellation prior to arrival unless it is during a special event or if you buy an advanced purchase rate. More

We stayed here over the weekend for a wedding. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful and it is a beautiful historic hotel. However, the rooms are very small and the walls are PAPER THIN. I heard every word my neighbors were saying, every door shutting and toilet flushing. I realize it's because the hotel is very old,...

Definitely would stay at this historic property again. It was a pleasure coming downstairs to the bar to have dinner while listening to live music. We saw some wonderful sights in Austin but our experience at this hotel was actually one of the highlights of our trip!

We had one night in Austin to see Concert and enjoy a great meal while staying in this fabulous historic hotel. We paid top dollar for a regular room, small but nice. Top as in $500. Beware! We did not get into our room until after 5pm w luggage as it was not ready. That put a rush on the... More

Definitely would stay here again. Everything you expect a hotel to be. I don't even get this kind of service at the Hiltons! If you want to eat at the Grill make sure you make reservations way in advanced!
