The Romanesque-style Driskill is the oldest operating hotel in Austin, built in 1886 by cattleman Jesse Driskill and frequented by VIPs from President Lyndon B. Johnson to Bob Dylan. The 12-story hotel showcases towering columns, marble flooring and stained glass windows, and houses 189 rooms with premium bedding, ceiling fans, free Wi-Fi, flat-panel plasma TVs, fluffy robes and designer toiletries. Savor a soothing afternoon with a massage or visit to the steam room in the full-service spa, or get a thorough workout in the fitness center. Dining options include a luxurious restaurant offering dinner and limited room service, a bakery/café and a Western-style lounge with happy-hour specials and live entertainment. A 24-hour concierge and business center and 18,000 square feet of event space are also available, and the hotel offers pet-pampering amenities (for an additional fee) and big fun for youngsters. Located on the corner of Brazos and Sixth Streets in downtown Austin, the Driskill is a five-minute walk from the Texas State Capitol and Austin Convention Center and is surrounded by live music hot spots. Bike rentals are available for tours around nearby Lady Bird Lake, valet parking is offered (for a fee) and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is a seven-mile drive west.

Very Good - 4.2 out of 5

Hill Sun, 17 July 2016

Liked: Room thermostat was set at 65* upon arrival. THANK YOU! Room 412 was tiny but workable, immaculately clean, and comfortable. Staff was exemplary.
Disliked: Choice of only a thin sheet or a 4" thick sub-zero rated comforter as bedding. In 100* heat! Access to a happy-medium compromise (light blanket) would have given me hours more sleep.
