If you like history, then this is the place to stay. Beautiful architecture which will put you back in time. Beautiful suites along with a great staff. Would highly recommend the cafe on the first floor. Try the banana split for dessert or many of the desserts available. A must stay.

The Driskill is beautiful especially at Christmas 🎄 The rooms are nice- food is very good and the Bartenders are the best! But parking is very expensive. Also check your bill I found several mistakes Will definitely stay again.

I booked a room to stay here during Thanksgiving. Weeks before we were due to check in, I tried to call to have anyone answer questions. Forget it; they could have cared less. When I asked for manager with whom to share my concerns, they transferred me to a call center public relations manager who wasn't even on site. She... More

As the title of my review says.. I came here for a few drinks at the bar, late evening-ish with a friend. Excellent, authentic live texas music being played (honestly the band was on fire). By the time I left I found myself wishing I would have stay a few nights.

Had the 7 course price fixed Thanksgiving dinner. My wife had short ribs and I had the turkey. A liitle more gravy would have been nice. The sides were awesome, too. Dan our server did a great job.

I'd read the reviews so I popped in to have a look. The architecture is fascinating and well worth a visit on its own. I looked at both the cafe and restaurant menus and I saw plenty to make me want to go back and eat there. I think staying there is out of my price range but I'd like... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but went to the bar to have a drink and soak in the culture. It gets quite crowded so get there early if possible if you want a seat. There was live music and great people watching. They serve a 'batini' which they claim is the official drink of Austin. To me it wasn't... More
