Was not sure of what to expect; but this hotel was charming, historic, decorated for the holidays and a nice change from mega-hotel clones. The room (and bathroom) was welcoming. Not a great view out the window, but oh well. All the amenities I needed and wanted. Just a short walk away from great restaurants and live music row. Can't wait to go back to Austin, and will definitely stay again at the Driskill. Hotel staff was exceptional, very accommodating.
