We enjoyed a weekend at the Driskill. The hotel is beautiful and also a historical landmark. It is open during the Covid social distancing period and we did see employees wearing masks. Nice amenities include good soaps and shampoos and the room's modern television supports integration with your cellphone so you can broadcast your own content. The beds are comfortable. We liked the tea they give you with the room's coffee maker. The sinks and beds were clean, but I thought some of the areas like the cabinet the TV was on and the bathroom tile grout could have been cleaned better. There was also a long hair on the bathrobes. I'm sure the staff is compromised somewhat during these unusual times, but these are things mismatched with a hotel of this caliber. Our rate included breakfast in the hotel's 1886 Cafe. It's not a continental buffet like those in a lot of corporate chain breakfasts. It's a real restaurant with food made to order. We tried a variety of things including the benedicts, the omelets, the oatmeal, and the waffle. Everything was very good and so was the coffee. I was a little confused about how the billing for this worked; the front desk person checking us in said you just bill the meal to the room and the cost will be waived but the check-out person said it is a $50 credit. I guess I'll find out when I see the final credit card billing. Overall it's a nice hotel, I would stay here again.

The Driskill, keep in mind is an historic hotel, so it is going to have a different look, and not everything is perfect, but it has the style & grace of a gone by era. Lobby is wood, and fancy pillars and extravagant stain glass. My room while not big was clean, had high ceilings, and had a lot of nice touches with an historic flair. The bed was unbelievable. My view was horrible of the old building next door, but that is why there are drapes. As part of my weekend stay I got a free brunch which was anything on the menu downstairs and it was a very nice meal with great service. Gym was clean well appointed with modern high tech equipment as well as dumbbells. Very nice. People need to know they do not have parking. Only recommend pay parking near by $24/day no in and old privileges. Hot ticket: find parking free after 6PM and weekends on street $2/hour.
