In Austin for a conference in March, I stayed at the Driskill mid-week for two days. The hotel is centrally located in downtown Austin in the business district. It seemed to me mainly other business professionals were staying while I was there; but that may have been due to the time of my stay (mid-week during conference season.) The rooms are extremely small and have been redone with some silly (meant to be "luxiourous" I suppose) touches like a fur blanket strewn over the bed. Nonetheless they are very comfortable. The place is a bit "rickity" given its an older hotel (kind of reminds me of how the Waldorf is in New York) but it's still charming and for a business trip certainly beats some boring Hilton, for example. The business center is in the lobby and is sufficient. There are two computers, but at least one was always unoccupied.
