The Historic Driskill is a luxe hotel for the price of other more "generic" downtown hotel options. The rooms, facilities, and most importantly the customer service was great. The location, right on 6th, one block off Congress cannot be beat. Given the location you might think it would be loud. We stayed on a Saturday night and didn't hear a... More

I've stayed at the Driskill several times over the years with excellent results. However this time the room was extremely noisy with loud slamming of doors from the hallways at all hours of the evening. Stayed two nights with same results the second night. The room was also not as clean as in past stays.

We stayed at the Driskill because my husband wanted to stay in a "historic" hotel. It is indeed beautiful, with décor reminding me of the late 1800's and early 1900s. However, it is fully renovated. The room we stayed in was a small room, yet the bathroom was very new, pretty and comfortable. The bed was very comfy, and it... More

Ambiance is wonderful and the best drinks in town! Western motif throughout very old bar in a very old hotel that has been well preserved. Bar food delicious as well. Saturday morning we indulged ourselves with a brunch of Eggs Benedict and mimosas. It was very good. They have a wide variety of luscious brunch items from which to pick.... More

Arrived in Austin with a nervous client in the pouring rain for a tough business meeting scheduled the following day. From instant we entered the Driskill, everything calmed down. It was the perfect place to relax, prepare, and be enveloped in a comfortable setting and surrounded by history with solicitous staff ready to serve. Perfect.

this is a good hotel. The environment is fine. The room suits me well. Especially the people here help me a lot. I forgot to check out before 12, however, the lady who helped me at almost 5 is so kind to allow me not to pay the extra money. I'm very happy to recommend it to others.
