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.

Greetings and thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are so grateful you chose to stay with us, and are delighted to hear you enjoyed the Driskill bar and restaurant. However we are truly disappointed that our staff was not able to accommodate your room request. We would like to sincerely apologize for the lack of empathy you received upon your arrival. Please know this is not our standard and we regret that this was your experience. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back to The Driskill the next time you return to Austin!

Always a pleasure...

Pros: Location and the service.
Cons: None
Location: Right off of 6th street. Easy walk to the visitor's center, O.Henry museum, and congress street. Location also easy to find in the rental car.
This was my second time to stay at the Driskill and I was just as pleased as the first time I walked into the stunning lobby. Service plus throughout my stay and excellent location. Also great bar with good music and a wonderful breakfast in the café. Love that waffle in the shape of the state of Texas.
