This hotel has never lost it charm, ambiance or decor. It's beautiful fun and the location is great. And for the rate - it was a great price - my girlfriend and I split a double as we were both there in business- and we were enamored - we never would have been able to stay at a downtown hotel...

Stayed here while on a college tour with my daughter. The hotel is nice, clean and historic. Bar is fun, hopping, good people watching and a fun place to get a drink. The room was nice, beds comfortable and sheets great. Space worked pretty well with 2 girls getting dressed. The valet was SLOW, only one guy would run to...

We really enjoyed the hotel, bar and breakfast. Breakfast was delicious and reasonably priced. It is conveniently located and was easy to get around. We were there for a wedding and the event was amazing.

...and glad that I finally did. The Driskill is such an Austin icon and was just as nice as I hoped. The service was excellent and rooms met all expectations. I just love the bar on the second floor as well. Even if you do not stay here stop in for a (pricey) drink here.

Loved the hotel, staff and location. Bar was good for smaller groups, yet does not handle large groups well. Staff seems to be non- accommodating to over 8. Too bad as it's a really cool area of the old hotel that has tremendous history with live music.
