Recently visited Austin and stayed at the Driskill Hotel. Great location, in the heart of Downtown. Classic hotel with a beautiful lobby, comfortable rooms and impeccable service. I don't know if they were short staffed or not, but everyone we came in contact with, went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Special shout out to the staff at the 1886 Cafe and Bakery; as well as to Nathan, working at the Valet Parking station. If you want to stay at one of those places where you get what you pay for, this is the place to stay.

This is a slice of Texas history worth experiencing first hand! It is a great location right in the heart of downtown with no need for a car....tons to see at your doorstep....rooms and bed/bedding are very nice...comfortable. This is on the higher end of my typical price point but I felt it was well worth the cost!

We stopped in Austin for the night while on a cross country road-trip and was compelled to stay at the haunted, historic Driskill hotel - we were not disappointed! The hotel is stunning and in the most iconic location. The balcony’s facing Brazos St and 6th Street offer incredible views. Walking around the hotel felt like walking around a museum! We were sad we didn’t have time to do a tea afternoon at the Driskill, but will certainly be back to experience. David, who manages Valet, was extremely kind and offered the best service we’ve ever experienced. We had great conversation, he offered recommendations for us, and he just made our overall experience in Austin more great! Highly recommend staying at the Driskill.

Wonderful time at the Driskill for Thanksgiving. Was a Spur of the Moment idea and was disappointed that they didn't have Thanksgiving Dinner BUT it was still an awesome stay. The room was very comfortable, the staff was super friendly, the bar drinks were great, and the food was delicious.

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is beautiful and they will give you a handout with a brief history on it. David and Nathan at the valet station were extremely helpful as well as the interior staff! We can’t wait to visit again.
