The Driscoll is a true Austin historical gem! Fine dining and great rooms! It's fun to get a drink- and walk around downtown after dinner. Good for parties too👍‼️

The Driskill is a fabulous old hotel in downtown Austin within walking distance to all the sites of Austin's famous sixth street night life and restaurants.

The hotel is candy for the eye - interesting details everywhere you look. Great bar just a few steps above lobby, very lively with assorted live music. But best of all is the location, on the corner of 6th which is where the live music takes over every night. And all attractions seem to be within 15 minutes of the... More

The hotel itself is beautiful. The bar area is tight but comfortable. Many people walking about town will stop in and have a craft cocktail before moving on to the next spot. The restaurant is great for breakfast/brunch. Definitely a wait but it goes fast. When you walk into the hotel in the morning there is a coffee bar set... More

I didn't stay in this classic hotel, but I did walk in for a self guided tour and visit to the bar. Absolutely beautiful building that makes you feel like you're in the old west. Definitely worth dropping in.

I have lived in Austin for 6 years. The Driskill has been one of my favorite places to keep coming back to. The service at the bar and restaurant is incredible. You feel like you are being taken care of by everyone here when you visit. I love that you can sit on the balcony outside and watch the city... More
