charming but not very clean
charming lobby great location (on 6th street) historic nice breakfast restaurant front porches outside tall ceilings historic markers great hot shower with good water pressure
tiny room dirty sink (hairs, old toothpaste) tv cabinet broken hot
We came for my 21st birthday on 6th street and I can't imagine picking a better place. They did everything they had to do to keep it classy and cool headed as it's located on one of the busiest and most popular tour attractions in Texas. We only live 45 mins away but Austin is my go to. I LOVE it there. I had friends come up and get ready in the room and hang out before and a little afterwards but only 4 of us stayed in the room and it was everything I could have asked for and more!!! The "haunted" back ground give this place an edge and with the timelessness of the Titanic, it makes the Driskill a MUST DO in terms of staying ATX. 10/10 recommend.
Nothing- I would change nothing
It used to be an amazing hotel!
The valet was torn up with construction. The lobby and hallways literally smelt like a sewer. The mezzanine was stacked with old furniture. The once famous bar was loud noisy and also smelt like a sewer. The bathroom had chipped paint and a cracked floor length mirror. There was no counter space in the bathroom. The glass top furniture had dried paint drops on top from lack of a drop cloth.
Beautiful historic hotel. Great staff. Great central location. Food was amazing in Cafe and at the Grill. Dog friendly (they have doggie concierge kits with bed, bowls, treats and poop bags).
The petite rooms really are petite, so be aware of that when you book, but in all honestly, you're only there to sleep and shower so it's definitely not a deal breaker.
Had massive character and charm. Gorgeous lobby. Bar always always had a nice vibe.
There was an old musty odor in the bar and lobby. Reminded me of an old basement. Parking was $40/day.
Great food menu with healthy choices. Friendly staff. Nice tall ceilings in room. Great location. Nice decor for the holidays.
What a great stay! The staff was helpful and friendly from start to finish. It was like taking a step back in time without having to give up any modern conveniences. The price is worth all the little details.
The staff, at every level, were responsive and had amazing attitudes. Very well done.
Luxurious and Victorian themed hotel
The hotel decor and ambiance is very nicely done, makes you feel like you are in the midst of royalty. The bed is very comfortable. The service is excellent, we needed a few extra things since my wife wanted to celebrate my birthday. The bakery downstairs made a real good cake. The location of the hotel is great, it is right in the middle of the nightlife of Austin and makes going bar hopping or clubbing that much easier, cant imagine a better location.
The elevator floor tiles were duck taped on which was odd. The room is a little small by texas standards but ok by NY standards. There is a surprising number fo bums on the streets outside, just ignore them and be on your own way, if you are from NYC you'll be fine but even otherwise nothing to be alarmed of. A bit pricey.
beautiful location in the middle of the city. Rooms are beautiful and very romantic.
Beautiful historic hotel
We had a wonderful stay at the driskill. The staff was very helpful with suggestions on what to do in the area. We were staying for my birthday and web we arrived they had chocolate covered strawberries and champagne delivered to the room.
Bed was amazing, architecture was beautiful, right in the heart of 6th street entertainment district
Had issues with Valet parking service on two separate occasions. Normally I wouldn't mind, but when I have to pay for parking at a nightly rate then I expect service to match.
The hotel/rooms are beautiful and comfortable.
I picked the room for the view. The view was road construction. I was chraged more for the view. Room price should have been lower.
Huge, luxurious room
nothing. It was excellent.
Staff very helpful. Facilities such as bar and restaurant looked very good. Great location close to restaurants and Cafe.
its right on 6th street and the hotel has a courtersy conceirge car that will drive you down to south congress for some shopping (or anywhere downtown for that matter). I stayed in one of the smaller rooms which was fine. The bed was huge, plenty of room to hang clothes and a functional bathroom so it had everything I needed.
There was nothing I disliked about the hotel
Staff and dining...also front desk people, excellent!
The old world ambience and the Driskill Grill. The food and wine and service were superb.
The mattress in our room sloped towards the headboard. The springs in one side popped when you got into bed. The pillows were very, very flat. In our room, 902, we would suggest a new mattress and new pillows.
The Driskill, Austin is a unique, restored Historic hotel in the center of Downtown Austin, Texas convinient to the Capitol, University and Austin night life.
Nice room, great decor. Clean.
Bed was a little uncomfortable. Mattress upgrade would help.
Awesome location. Right on Sixth street; you walk down into the hub of nightlife fun ..
