“Texas history”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

What a great place to just step back in time. I have been a guest many times over the years and still love to return. The rooms are nicely appointed and the restaurant superb. The bar makes a great place to meet up with friends even if you are not staying at the hotel.

“Authentic 6th Street stop”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Very good pizzas and deserts. They misbehave at breakfast time enrolling you to the wait list though they have free tables! However service is good.

“great bar!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We did not stay in the hotel, but we did go there twice for drinks. great live music. Wonderful drinks. AND the 2nd night, the waitress not only remembered us, but remembered what we had ordered the night before!!! It was our first visit EVER to Austin, so there is no way she could have seen us before or waited on us before the previous night! Anyway, the bar has a very elegant, historic atmosphere, however it is still very comfortable & not stuffy at all. you can sit @ tables, the bar, or @ sofas. Really nice. We will definitely be back!!

“A must see in Austin”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The Hotel is Beautiful inside and out. We visited the bar on Friday night. Had the Nachos and Wings for an appetizer, they were great. Husband had a couple of Beers and I had their specialty Martini, quite tasty. Again, my best experience with Austin was the people, the Driskill employees were most gracious and helpful. Vanessa was our waitress. She was very attentive and friendly. They had entertainment too. We had a fabulous time there. Very calm and kickback compared to the 6th street experience.
