Pros:  The public spaces - entry, restaurant/bar and spacious lobby are an elegant tribute to the early 20th Century with its beautiful dark paneling, stained glass and marble floors. And the hotel is well located for enjoying a night in downtown Austin.
Cons:  The staff did not seem to be communicating well with each other. Our room was not ready when we checked in, so we stored our luggage with the bellman. It took several calls over the next hour, after getting access to our room,to get the luggage delivered

Pros:  Great character! For as old as the Driskill is it has been very well maintained through the years. It's a beautiful hotel. Very close to shops, bars and restaurants. If I am ever in Austin again I will be staying there again!
Cons:  The elevators are kinda old and scary but I also have a huge fear of elevators so I might be being bias :-)

Pros:  The room was beautiful. The lobby was beautiful. All, in all a very nice hotel with alot of history.
Cons:  Our view was of a brick wall. Basically, we had no view. Parking is $38 per day - that's alot of money when you're already paying alot for a room that you're not even allowed to stay in for 24 hours. Will not be returning!

The on site dining selections were wonderful the 1886 bakery was amazing. The coffee was great and the banana pudding and the chocolate cake were the best. Breakfast was delicious and the cinnamon rolls were out of this world.

Pros:  The staff was awesome. Everyone was helpful and went out if there way to help make your stay special.
