Perfect from the check-in

Would recommend Thu, Dec 17, 2015
What a beautiful, clean, elegant, fun, solid Austin 'citizen'. Great bar and entertainment - a lot going on with downstairs tea to live entertainment in the handsomely carved and stained glass bar. We ate dinner at the Grill and were overwhelmed with the quality (and the pricetag) as well as having an outstanding breakfast downstairs........... and David at the front desk made sure we had our bearings and pointers on the area. I would certainly send friends though I would tell them to request away from the elevator shaft - it was pretty active at times. The rooms were very beautiful and the housekeeping perfect.

Perfect stay

Would recommend Wed, Jul 8, 2015
I had a wonderful one night stay at The Driskill. The hotel is beautiful. I was a real nerd, taking pictures everywhere I went. Valet and check-in were a breeze. My room was lovely, spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. I actually took a bath, which I never do at a hotel. So relaxing! The location of the hotel is PERFECT a woman can walk alone to great shopping and dining. Every recommendation I received from the staff for restaurants and shopping was spot on. The bakery off the lobby has fabulous desserts. Only complaint valet parking fee was really expensive.

Great

Would recommend Tue, May 5, 2015
Amazing hotel. Loved it all. Right in the midst of Austin, this hotel has a great feel to it and a very comfortable bed. Booked it right after SXSW and got a killer deal. The shampoos and soaps were some of the best I've ever used in a hotel. The location allows you to go anywhere in Austin and the hotel itself is gorgeous. Loved it!

Make sure you review your bill

Would recommend Sun, Mar 15, 2015
Review you bill after you get home, I was told at check out I had no outstanding charges, however I was charged for the mini-bar, and I did not even accept the key to open it from checkout.

I was on a business trip to Austin. The employees are very helpful. When asking for directions they don't just tell you where to go they walk you there! The rooms are clean (small but, it is an old hotel) and well maintained.
