Such a lovely property from the entrance to the room. Stayed in a petite room, small but very elegant! Bed was cozy, feather pillows, nice products provided, robes, auto light closet, remote control ceiling fan, and mini bar. Did not bother the mini bar, weighted! Room was quiet, did not hear any street noise or noise from the several events...

My son moved to Austin last year (2015) so we went to visit for Christmas. We took the Segway Tour of downtown and the hotel was a stop. Loved the hotel and especially the bar. So this year we decided to stay at the Driskill. We stayed in a lovely room in the 5th Floor overlooking the corner of 6th...

Great hotel, friendly staff and perfect location. Noted as a "haunted" hotel making the stay exciting, especially if you walk the halls on the old side of the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Valet was great, the restaurant is small, but the food is good. Recommended.

As an Austinite, I've visited the bar and restaurant at this hotel countless times. Recently we had nice dinner with a large group, and we valeted my (brand new) car. The next morning we noticed I had two small dents in the back lift gate, which I am positive were not there previously. It's clear that someone (like a valet,...

First off, ignore the bad reviews and understand that you're visiting a building that's been standing since the 1880's and set your expectations appropriately! The rooms are smaller, you might catch a musty smell, but it's got character and that's it's draw. That said, the rooms have been updated with remote controlled ceiling fans, white noise machines, USB plugs everywhere,...
