“Great lunch spot for food and culture”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Liked the historic nature of the place. Prices were reasonable for a "fancy hotel" restaurant and service was good. Spoke with Head Chef, who showed genuine interest in his customers' satisfaction.

“Luxurious old school hotel-beautiful”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Classy old time luxury. They decorate for holidays especially Christman. Great for couples for getaway or business travels and even families. The cafe on first floor is also very nice.

“nice hotel, great restaurant”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

My husband and I have stayed here overnight after having a wonderful dinner in the restaurant. I highly recommend going to the Driskill, especially if they are running a special and you can get a room for a nice price.

“If you love Ghost stories”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Not only is this one of the last romatic hotels but the history of ghosts makes it one place to try for yourself and see if it's true.
