I stayed at the hotel while attending the TAAHP conference. It was excellent and I would stay there again. This historic hotel exceeded my expectations; was not the 'cookie-cutter' property that so many hotels have become; and was a great surprise. I would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to my friends.

Love the atmosphere, and you can't be any closer to literally all that Austin has to offer. Very nice and professional staff that welcome you as you enter, I don't think I opened a door in this place, there was always someone rushing ahead of me to open the door, Excellent food, excellent bar over all one of the best...

My husband is 6'6". He had made a reservation for a Junior Suite with a King bed. The nightly rate was over $400 with tax. What a beautiful historic hotel and we had always wanted to stay here. We sent our car with the valet and gave our luggage to the bellman. We were checked in and went to our... More

We did not stay at the Driskill but I wish we had and we will next time in Austin. We actually just spent time in the fabulous "Great Gatsby" style bar area. We had fantastic service and enjoyed a fabulous scotch. The house wine was also wonderful and recommended. I enjoyed the red so cannot comment on the white. If... More

My husband planned for us to stay in this historic hotel for my 30th birthday. The building itself is absolutely beautiful- and it is supposed to be haunted. Definitely was something I thought we would LOVE and my sweet husband worked hard to make it all work. My husband told the concierge when booking that we were celebrating a birthday.... More

An old friend just moved to Austin recently (hadn't seen him in 12 yrs!!). We finally managed to coordinate a time to meet and catch up. I chose The Driskill for it's apparent history and Austin appeal. It was a Sunday night, so I was thankful that the band wasn't playing then (otherwise it would've been FAR too loud to... More

On our cross country trip we have been looking to stop at unique boutique hotels. Thank Goodness for the Internet and sites like this because we have discovered some gems. The Driskill so far is the best of the best. It is an old classic building updated and modernized but still maintaining its old world charm. In the heritage section,... More

The hotel lobby is elegant but smelled slightly mildewy. The staff is happy to tell you about the hotel's history and also give you some written material. The room was fine but nothing extraordinary. The food was very good.
