awesome hotel and service

Jul 19th, 2019

They pay attention to the small things, both with the service and the hotel itself. The hotel room price is a great value. Room was nice and cool when we checked in, music was playing, and they bought the luggage up to the room for us. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great Stay

Jul 18th, 2019

Stayed here for 6 nights; friendly staff upon request provided me a room on the quite floor (on the tower side). Great concierge who always answered questions, gave cold water bottle as we were stepping out of the building, and even gave a teddy to my 14 month old. That tells you that they have empathy/appreciation towards their customers. The quality of the service is top notch. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Gorgeous Hotel

Jul 18th, 2019

Overall the Driskill was a beautiful hotel with a lot of heritage and appeal. The room was fairly comfortable, but the bathroom was far too small to have an inward turning door. There is no parking nearby so expect to valet. Valet was prompt and courteous, but be cautious of overcharges for the service. The biggest issue is the smell. It is a very old building so some smell is expected. We knew going in from friend's recommendation that the smell was a thing but was shocked as to how strong it was. Upon asking I found that the public areas of the hotel have an artificial "old building smell" (musk + dust + decay) piped into it. This was extremely strong and gave my wife an almost instant headache. The smell was less powerful in the room but still very noticeable. Once the room had cooled and the A/C shut off the smell seemed to reduce further for me but my wife reported that it never subsided for her. If you don't mind strong smells it adds to the allure of staying in a hotel that is over 100 years old, but if you are sensitive to smells you might consider something more modern.

Living History

Jul 17th, 2019

An historic hotel and THE place to stay in Austin. Wonderful hotel evocative of an earlier time, but providing a thoroughly modern experience. Great room with all amenities. History permeates throughout this beautifully decorated hotel. Staying here is a unique experience. While the hotel is wonderful, it is the staff that provide a genuine welcome and the highest level of customer service. Everyone made us feel at home. This is a special place. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Driskill for Business Travel

Jul 17th, 2019

Had a great 3 night stay at the Driskill for work related purposes. It's a grand hotel, large rooms, quiet. And the food in the downstairs restaurant is excellent. Stay there if you can. It's close to everything - lively downtown 6th street and Rainey (where all of the bars and great restaurants are located). Also used Bird to travel. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
