If you're going to Austin, and want to be in the middle of it all, stay at the Driskill Hotel! It is an icon, built about 1886, and steeped in history! The renovations on the Hotel are admirable and well done, the bar is stellar, with cow print sofas, music night;ly, and delicious cocktails and a bar menu very worthy of partaking! It seemed to be one of THE places to BE in Austin! We ate several meals in the Cafe, and each one was yummy, especially the Brisket Burger with queso, and the Paris Benedict at Brunch! The staff was knowledgeable of the area with numerous recommendations, and friendly. We'll be back!
