Beautiful hotel with great food, drinks and history. But room 513 is awful and it's a junior suite so it's considered an upgrade and trust me it costs more. Not worth it!! It's dark and gloomy with one window that you have to look up to see the light of day. Depressing...... I have to have sunlight and open views...

This was our first experience at the Driskill. The service by waiters and valet staff is exceptional. The hotel is well kept and the architecture is beautiful. I would stay there again anytime we are in Austin.

This hotel is really special and unique, a little like Austin itself. We had a Junior Suite which had a huge balcony overlooking 6th street. The room was quirky, spacious and very comfortable. As well as the amazing marble adorned lobby, and sumptuous bar the bakery/restaurant was fantastic, as was its staff and particularly manager Mitch who typifies the warmth...

The construction work makes parking confusing. There was no answer to room service calls. My bags were taken to the wrong room. $40 bucks to use valet. $18 bucks for a movie. I cannot imagine staying here again.

The lobby is gorgeous, and offers a great place to meet friends and organize your day. The lounge & bar is likewise iconic, with live music on the weekends, top-notch drinks, and a vibrant atmosphere...

Being from Austin and living nearby, I had never stayed at the Driskill. I am a Texas history buff and knew the Driskill was rife with stories, history and "hauntings". I brought my wife of 35 years and hardly ever left the building, which is, by itself, captivating. We will be back...
