I paid for an upgraded room and was allowed to check in early which was nice. When we got to our very nice room (545) it had no air and was very hot and it couldn't be fixed while we were at lunch so they did move us to another room. However, the new room certainly didn't appear

SoCo (south congress) is 5 blocks from the Driskill, so not too bad if you don't mind the walk. I stayed about a month ago, walked from Driskill to Zilker Park and back, but did it for exercise and put some miles in that day. 😅

My room had a regular tub/shower combination but I was in a standard room type so as the other reviewer stated, probably best to reach out to your travel agent or directly with the hotel.

"Rooms without a view are quieter."
"Rooms not facing 6th street are quieter"
"Room 539 overlooking 6th Street"
"If you can afford it, it is worth it to stay in the shorter tower. Rooms, bathrooms, etc are way better and I'd say totally worth it."
"Pick one away from the elevators . . . very noisy otherwise."
