    The Driskill is a historic classic boutique hotel of Austin. Lots of variations in the rooms but the Brazos suite was perfect. The large balcony overlooking 6th street and the live music made the stay

    Request room 535 if its available or any of the corner rooms facing 6th street. You won't regret it. Then, look out for the friendly ghost! :)

    great hotel for a visit in Austin. If not staying here still a must see for its beauty and history. Grab a great cocktail in the bar while here.

    This is the spot where you want to come and enjoy a great classic hotel. The bar is phenomenal and a great place to start early and end late! My top spot to stay when in Austin!

    They say it's haunted. I say it's super classy. Totally recommended. The only 'but' is that they don't have a swimming pool, which in Texas summer should be almost mandatory.

    The 7 course wine pairing was awesome! Celebrated a belated anniversary and made us feel at home. Meal was exquisite and wine took it home. If you're in the area, this is a must!

    This is the granddaddy of luxury hotels in Austin. Located right at Sixth Street and Congress Avenue, the Driskill has been showing off the best side of Austin since 1886.

    Tin ceilings. Cast iron statues. Crossed pistols. Glass done ceilings. And when you get to the bar, Rachel, I recommend a bourbon and elder flower liquor. It's sweet, but delicious!

    Perfect for wedding receptions, company parties, or just brunch on a Sunday morning. The best thing about this place? Word has it that Room 429 (amongst others) is haunted!

    Check out the mezzanine areas if you have a chance nice lounge chairs and you can look out onto 6th street

    Texas Sized Hospitality. Sets the standard for elegance & offers a restaurant, bakery, piano bar and GHOSTS. Budget travelers, this is NOT your scene. But sometimes you just gotta go for it!

    Opened in 1886, this is the oldest operating hotel in Austin. Legend has it the original owner, cattle baron Jesse Driskill, lost the hotel to his brother in law in a poker game in 1888.
  • Austin American-Statesman
    Built in 1886 as the showplace of a cattle baron, the hotel stands as a landmark of Texas hospitality. The luxury hotel is close to the Capitol, Convention Center and entertainment districts.

    The Driskell Bar makes me swoon (when it's not SXSW mobbed). Great live music. Revolver light fixtures. Killer bartenders. (And don't miss the cupcakes sneakily for sale at the bar)

    Constructed in 1886, this luxurious landmark is authentically Texan. High vaulted ceilings, columns on columns, marble, stained glass, the works.   Mehr erfahren

    Beautiful lobby/atrium. Solid food in the lobby cafe. Take a walk around the lobby and such to see the beauty.

    Beautiful lobby but rooms falling apart. Nicks and scratches and just feels old. No water glasses provided in room. Took three calls to get a Housekeeping request.

    Favorite spot for late night drinks. The buffet brunch is insanely popular. There is a great taxi pull up area on the side entrance.

    A true historic gem, right in the middle of downtown Austin. Be sure to inspect the statues and artwork closely.

    The food here is awesome. Order a delicious cappuccino and a cranberry orange scone in the cafe if you're on a budget and enjoy the atmosphere.

    pro tip: if you need to store jackets/laptops for a few hours or so, ask the concierge outside. there's a storage area in back. be nice and tip well!

    Upstairs Balcony is believed to be haunted as well as room 308. Also they have Chimay on tap!

    Make sure you visit the the Driskill Grill the food is amazing and the ambiance is very inviting.

    They say this lovely Texas landmark is haunted. Me? I don’t believe in ghosts, and I had a lengthy debate about this very topic with a rather opaque visitor one autumn night in room 319.

    Great place to host an event. Very historic looking and is of course and the staff is great.

    Interesting activity in the ballroom...swaying crystals in the chandelier and some flickering electricity. Had a friend feel a close brush or scrape by her shoulder...
  • Nelson Wells at T.
    Here's a tip for the Driskill. Serve some decent top shelf in the venue. This JimBeam only crap only degrades your once impeccable name. If it is sponsorship then tell SXSW to kissyourass!

    Busts of Driskill and his two sons are located high atop each entrance, along with stylized heads of Texas longhorn steers.

    Eat at the 1886 Cafe and bakery for breakfast. Try the Brazos Huevos Rancheros - It's amazing.

    Like the hotel but should be warned about the view when booking, something like "Hey dummy be happy to get some sunlight."

    If you ever have luggage, jackets, or whatever - leave it with the valet and tip them nice. It's a good scene.

    Don't count on the Foursquare check-in special about a pineapple-jalapeño soda. They've been out of ingredients for it.
