The Driskill is beautiful especially at Christmas 🎄 The rooms are nice- food is very good and the Bartenders are the best! But parking is very expensive. Also check your bill I found several mistakes Will definitely stay again.

I booked a room to stay here during Thanksgiving. Weeks before we were due to check in, I tried to call to have anyone answer questions. Forget it; they could have cared less. When I asked for manager with whom to share my concerns, they transferred me to a call center public relations manager who wasn't even on site. She... More

As the title of my review says.. I came here for a few drinks at the bar, late evening-ish with a friend. Excellent, authentic live texas music being played (honestly the band was on fire). By the time I left I found myself wishing I would have stay a few nights.

Had the 7 course price fixed Thanksgiving dinner. My wife had short ribs and I had the turkey. A liitle more gravy would have been nice. The sides were awesome, too. Dan our server did a great job.

I'd read the reviews so I popped in to have a look. The architecture is fascinating and well worth a visit on its own. I looked at both the cafe and restaurant menus and I saw plenty to make me want to go back and eat there. I think staying there is out of my price range but I'd like... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but went to the bar to have a drink and soak in the culture. It gets quite crowded so get there early if possible if you want a seat. There was live music and great people watching. They serve a 'batini' which they claim is the official drink of Austin. To me it wasn't... More

The hotel itself is beautiful. Walking inside feels like if you were stepping into history...I don't know if it really is haunted or not but I don't think I'd be brace enough to stay more than one night to find out...especially in room 525 the "suicide suite."
