I booked the room because it seemed fancy, special and high end. Location is a premium. Very busy block in the thick of the mix. Valet Parking is crazy hectic, the hotel is used for high profile events and multiple at a time. There was a prom, tour and wedding there all in one night...our room was so far from...

The Driskill is unlike any other hotel in Austin. The architecture of the building is beautiful and dates back to 1886. It is in a perfect location, right within walking distance of 6th street, where there are a TON of great bars and endless entertainment and people watching. It is not an inexpensive hotel, but I can completely understand why....

Checked in very late on the first evening, but was able to get my room without issue. Room was very clean. Staff was very helpful. Excellent stay to help me stay refreshed for my business meetings. Stayed in this location to be within walking distance of everything I needed in downtown.

Waking up to a cold shower was bad enough, but having the staff express little to no concern made the problem worse. It's expected that no hotel is immune from experiencing mechanical failures, but how the staff addresses the issue makes the difference between exceptional and mediocre service. This Hyatt failed miserably with my most recent stay. When I reported...

We were in Austin for a family wedding. The brunch was very good from the attentiveness, to the food, to the service, to the price. Even if you don't eat there, it's worth walking thru. Make a few minutes to walk up the main staircase and thru the bar area. Beautiful lobby from another era.

I stayed at this lovely traditional hotel recently for a family wedding. I'm from England so am used to older hotels and this one didn't disappoint. I brought my own tea bags so was pleased to be able to use the facilities in the room to 'make a brew'. I was however slightly annoyed that there wasn't a full length...

I have had several business meetings at this hotel and have never been disappointed; however this is the first time I helped organize the event.
