This hotel boasts an incredible combination of history, hospitality, and fun; from the beautiful artwork lining the halls and the grand mezzanine exploring the building's history, to the plush, recently refreshed rooms and daily live music at the bar.

Great service and a remarkable stay throughout. If you want a piece of history this hotel is not to be missed. Right at the heart of Austin only to be topped by the service of all staff who were helpful and supportive in any respect of need. Will definitely be back.

I stayed at the Driskall while traveling for business and had a great experience. The staff was extemely attentive and the historical tour was a great extra touch. Room service and bar drinks were also enjoyable (highly recommend the chicken quesadilla and the Lady Bird cocktail!). Music can be loud at night was my only issue.

We stayed in a historic king room with fascinating art throughout the surrounding corridors and walk through the mezzanine level was a trip back in time 100 years. Fitness facilities were excellent especially for an old hotel. Staff were very nice. We walked to Town Lake, West 6th and Texas University all within 15 minutes. I will definitely be staying here on my next trip to Austin! Read less
