“Very disappointing, overpriced restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

The $40 steaks were marginal. Very over priced for what you get. Would NOT recommend it for dining.

“Beautiful but very expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

My husband and I spent a weekend here and I thought the hotel was so beautiful on the outside and the inside, but our room was a little bit of a let down. For nearly $300 a night we were expecting something more grand than a plain, small hotel room. Also, double check your bill. They overcharged us on parking, overcharged us on our romance package, and double charged us for the red bulls we had in our mini fridge. After I called they quickly fixed everything for us, but it was a little concerning that we had that many issues on our bill. After a night out in Austin, we came back and had drinks at the bar inside the Driskill. I will say that the gingerbread pancakes we had at their restaurant the next morning were delicious. If I had to do it again I'd probably just stay at the Omni and visit the Driskill for drinks or breakfast.
