I was there for a business meeting for 2 days. First, the hotel is going through significant external renovation making it difficult to get into as the valet area is essentially not accessible. We had to call the front desk to let them know we were arriving and to send out a valet. Lifts are very slow, the doors uneven...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 February 2017

This hotel is all that is told to be - historic, relaxing, beautiful. (Didn't experience any of the rumored hauntings). The Driskill is a part of the Hyatt hotels. The hallways and foyers are extravagant. The bar area is 5-stars. Provides live music. Comfortable seating available. Variety of beer taps on hand. The rooms are plush. The TV's could use...

Friendly service & comfortable rooms! Immediate access to 6th ST bars & businesses. A few blocks away from the Austin Convention Center. The Hotel decor is on the traditional side if you care about that sort of thing although it does include modern amenities.

They stay was pleasant. Ella at the front desk was helpful and absolutely amazing. I did however need to ask other staff several times for an item prior to my event. Also I had requested something special for our last night either fruit or a dessert to be put in the room before we returned from dinner but nothing was...

I booked an Executive Suite 2 months in advance. I was asked if there was a special occasion: Yes-birthday and finished cancer treatment. We were treated like royalty! Our suite was not available due to construction renovations so we were upgraded to a Presidential suite. We were continually greeted with birthday wishes and small gifts. This was quite uplifting for...

Great hotel, but watch out for the 15% tax and 20% gratuity for bar items in your room. You'll actually be paying 6.50 for a $5 item. The staff was friendly and courteous. The hotel is beautiful and it is the best location to be on six street :) My room was kind of dirty with strands of hair from...

We stayed here for 3 nights and found the room quiet, the bed and bedding extremely comfortable and the staff knowledgable. We had room service for breakfast one morning and it was delivered promptly. We had late night food in the bar, after a night out on 6th street, the ceviche and tacos was excellent.

This historic hotel is beautiful on the outside and the inside. The bar has copper painted tin ceilings and cowboy artifacts. Take the time to have a drink in the bar and enjoy the ambiance. Next time we are in Austin, we will stay at the Driskill.
