We deliberated over booking a room at The Driskill. Should we book one of the newer, hipper boutique hotels we wondered? Would The Driskill be too old, staid and stuffy? Hell NO ! It was fabulous ! During our nine night stay we were treated royally by every member of staff that we encountered. Their hospitality and dedication to service...

All around great - food, location, customer service, accommodations. They're even dog friendly and made my little one feel right at home (poop bags, bed, bowls and biscuits). Will definitely recommend to others and plan to stay here each time we visit Austin.

I really enjoyed the historic value of the Driskill. It is a part of Texas history. Being located on 6th Street, the Driskill is walking distance to most of the downtown attractions. Perry's Steakhouse is walking distance and I highly reccommed ordering the pork chop.

Beginning with the valet, the sign's wording stated they were closed due to the women's march event. Checking in wasn't bad but when the bell captain brought our luggage about 20 minutes later, I indicated how noisy it was downstairs, his comment was"you chose it" referring to our check in date. Getting our car brought around was a 20-25 minute...

Overall, the hotel is charming and neat because of the historical charm. I was surprised by how poorly the hotel is taken care of. The rooms are dirty. Debris and dust on the walls, lights and fixtures. Could tell hasn't had a thorough cleaning in a very long time. The gym is nice but the lack of facilities was disappointing....
