I have not stayed here but have been to the bar and dinning areas. The staff is really friendly. The service at the bar was great with several good beer on tap, like Chimay. The building itself is truly a great historical hotel and very well maintained. It is right in the middle of lots of great places to est,... More

We enjoyed drinks at the Driskill hotel bar, great drinks, great live entertainment. I felt like I was in the "real" Texas here, and enjoyed the decor and atmosphere.

When we were visiting Austin we decided to check out the Driskell Hotel which was built in 1885. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. So fun to walk around and soak it all in. We went to the bar area and enjoyed relaxing and having a drink. It has been so well maintained both inside and out. If you're in Austin... More

If you want to experience and learn about Texas history, go to the Driskill. This is an icon of Texas, not just a hotel. The rich wood, elegant staircase and Texan art will give you a cozy feeling. A good Sunday brunch or a cocktail at the bar will add to the experience.

If you are not staying at this beautiful and historic hotel, please check it out. It's great for pictures, getting dinner, a bit to eat, a cocktail, coffee, etc.

This was on our bucket list for quite a while and we were able to get a really good rate for a Saturday Night. Stay was fantastic and staff was great. Room was very nice and the beds were extremely comfortable.

One of the best in the country. I'm a fan of historical locations and a link to the locale - and if you are nodding, then this is your hotel. It's rooms are renovated so don't worry about running into another cowboy on your way to the washroom down the hall - this is a modern luxury hotel in all... More

All I can say is WOW! You have to stop in here for a beer and a bite to eat. This may have the most amazing architecture of any building in Austin. We stopped in just to have a quick beer while walking around town and wound up staying for 3 hours and ordering dinner. The place is incredible, to... More
