The property is stunning and the staff is excellent. Really a unique experience with incredible history. Such a great experience versus a characterless modern property. It's a special place that you should make the opportunity to experience.

We just stayed for 5 nights and we could not have been happier. The BBQ Platter at the bar is a must. We will definitely be back. It is also very convenient to most of the city and night life. The lobby and bar are nice areas to chill and grab a drink or food.

My husband and I stayed here for the first time a couple of days ago and it was wonderful. From the time we were greeted by the valet to the time of checkout the staff was very friendly and helpful. I also have to give a shout out to Trina who took care of our room. It was sparkling clean when we opened the door to the time we left and she always greeted us with a smile. Way to go Driskill for obviously taking care of your staff. It definitely shows 😊 Read less

Beautiful accommodations and exceedingly polite, friendly and helpful staff. I stayed a couple months back and I knew I would be staying there again, any time I am in Austin. The pecan waffles are a must for breakfast, as well as drinks in the bar, listening to the live music in the evening.

The hotel's service is very good, The bar area wonderful. The room was very tired and there was no service the day prior to departure did not think this met Hyatt standards. I would try this hotel again as the location is extremely good.
