We love staying at the Driskill when we are in Austin. Everything downtown is in walking distance.

We enjoyed a fun weekend of a night of dinner, music and libations, all within a few blocks, on Friday night.

On Saturday we spent the day at the State Capitol and shopping all within a short walk from the Driskill.

We did not request, but were booked into room 525. Apparently the most haunted room at the hotel. We didn’t know it at the time, but I did experience flickering lights in the bathroom. While at lunch we read that 525 was a room where a tragedy took place in that bathroom. Kind of creepy, but adds to the mystique of this fabulous old hotel.

Rooms are very clean, comfortable beds.

Architecture is beautiful, the building is loaded with stained glass.

Great bar with lots of history. The cafe is good for breakfast too.

We love the Driskill and will go back!

Thank Funseekers123

It would be really, really easy to zero this hotel review just because they lost our reservations. Not just any reservation, but the reservation I made there for my daughter's wedding. Had booked a suite for us and a room for Grandma only to find that they lost our reservation. Ended up with Okay rooms, but not the Suite we reserved. It's an old worn out hotel in need of updates and if it weren't for the beautiful bar, there really wouldn't be much to talk about.

Very nice experience. The hotel meet and greet was most gracious and we booked a room with 2 queens, clean and fresh and large. Oddly the room had no full length mirror??? Makeup mirror sits on a low table about 1 1/2 foot off the floor....no way to use. The bath could use some shelving though. Coffee in room was exceptionally tasty. They introduced a Sunday Blues Brunch which was definitely the highlight of our stay. Future guest might need reservations for this quite a way in advance since it will really take off. With a $35 per person charge for outstanding eats plus a live band sounding like New Orleans they will have a winner. Dinner for our anniversary was quite memorable with super service and tasty (while pricey) menu items.

My visit at the Driskill was very good. I've stayed at the property a few times. If you want a genuine historic experience, this is the hotel for you in Austin. The rooms were well appointed, and overall the property was very accommodating. The reason for not giving a 5 star rating is often times "little fish get lost in a big pond!" Not overly individualized service.

You can feel the history and beauty as you walk in the door. The Blackberry Smash in the lounge was my husband favourite..and he is a beer guy. The hallway on your floor is gorgeous w artwork. Can’t beat the location. Worth the extra couple of dollars.
