It's a very beautiful and interesting property. Disappointing there is no pool and even though it's advertised massages are available i was unable to get one scheduled and found the concierge to be unhelpful in getting an appointment. The staff was accommodating with a room issue i had and were gracious enough to make sure I got the room back even after I checked out and went elsewhere. Would definitely stay here again, oh it's location is great at the end of 6th Street and we loved t HGH e speakeasy across the street.

Gorgeous Hotel!! Didn’t realize until I got there that it’s reputed to be haunted, lol!! My only complaint is that for some reason they charged my card for over $300!! I’m anticipating that about half of that will fall off once it posts, (I did order room service and the valet is $50), but still... I booked and paid through Travelocity, obviously, so I’m not sure why I am seeing such a steep ‘incidentals’ charge. Guess time will tell, if it doesn’t end up being a pain to get back I will totally stay here again... just be sure and bring someone or something with you for emotional support if you spook easily. ;) Again, stunning hotel!!

Thank you for your response! We do have a wonderfully unique hotel that provides 189 different guest rooms, some of those which were staff rooms back in 1886! A tad smaller but all the charm in the world! We look forward to welcoming you back!

Driskill is a must!

They’ve done a great job at restoring The Driskill. The room was nice and clean, staff was very helpful and friendly. We purchased a bunch package and parking package and it is worth it! Would love to go back!

Beautiful hotel going through renovations.

Pros: Beautiful and historic. Enjoyed the bar and the restaurant. Food and atmosphere was great!
Cons: Honoring our request that we paid an additional amount for.
Location: Great location. Lots to do on 6th Street in Austin.
I paid extra for a king bed and we were given two queens. The confirmation clearly stated that the reservation was for a king. The hotel clerk would not accommodate the confirmation. The hotel was quite empty. The bathroom sink is very small and there is not a place to put any of your personal items.
