    Anchoring the heart of the Live Music Capital (just a few short blocks from the State Capitol) this historical property and hotel heavyweight has been accommodating Austin's visitors for more than a century. But just because this property is the city's grand dame doesn't mean it's stuck in the past. Sure, visitors are drawn to The Driskill's period decor – the property's leather furniture and embossed ceilings add a sense of grandeur – but they also appreciate the guest rooms' more contemporary amenities, like plasma TVs and complimentary high-speed internet access. The hotel's restaurants, The Driskill Grill and the 1886 Café & Bakery, also earn high praise, with diners calling the food spectacular and the service on point. But guests aren't the only ones who will feel like VIPs here: The Driskill even makes sure that your pooch has everything he or she needs, from a specially designed bed to a dog toy. Part of the Hyatt portfolio, loyalty members can earn and use points here.
