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.

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.

We were given a handicap room with no warning. The bathroom was awful with countertop at all. The room looked dated. Only one extra chair in the room so room service for two did not work well. The price of the room was way, way too much for what we got. Never again!
