We enjoyed a romantic weekend away at the Driskill. The hotel is beautifully restored and shows respect and love for its rich history. Excellent location. Fun to see Austinites arriving in tea garb for fancy Sunday tea. Very friendly and helpful staff.

A truly grand hotel. Easy to get the feel of grandeur from the 1886 timeframe of early Austin days. Flawless, spacious and beautiful decor downstairs and throughout lobbies. Staff very friendly and helpful. Facilities like the grill room, bar, ballroom and 1886 brunch areas are wonderful to take in.
Rooms are modest but adequate. Reasonably comfortable.

Words can't explain how beautiful this historic hotel. I decided to treat my husband for our anniversary to Austin, Texas!! I wanted a diamond hotel which I got... I got one of the themes room (renissance)which was a great choice for the occasion.. when I tell you that went over and beyond to make my 21st anniversary rememberable the rose petals, our cake, the champagne , and the view from 6th street was the topping on the cake!!
We had awesome time and I can't wait to come back.

We stayed here one night for work and it was great! The hotel staff was super helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and had a lot of charm. The location is also great for walking around downtown Austin. There’s a great cafe attached for breakfast and brunch and a bar which had live music at night!

Felt like a dream pulling up and waking up. An amazing experience I'd encourage others to have. Well worth it and we will be back! Staff was welcoming and non-judgmental, friendly and seemed to genuinely care about our time there.
