I came to Austin last year, and didn't stay overnight, but when we walked around 6th street I saw the Driskill and told myself I had to stay there when I returned. We came back for July 4th and I am so glad we got a chance to treat ourselves to this fabulous hotel. The location is amazing, right in the middle of 6th street but right on the edge of all the bars so you can't hear everyone at night. I was also really impressed the concierge asked for our ID's one night when we got in at 1am to make sure we were hotel guests. I thought that was a nice security touch! When we checked in, we used the valet service which was great. During our stay, there was a system glitch with the room we were supposed to be in, but the hotel was so customer service oriented they made it up to us completely by going above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. We were so impressed with their customer service, how they ensured our experience was going to be excellent, no matter what. Thank you management staff at The Driskill I would definitely recommend this classy and gorgeous establishment to anyone staying in Austin!!!
One more thing, we were able to get the government rate for our room because of Military at cheaper than the lower room which was great! It was like we got an upgrade for less which is always a plus!!!
