The Driskill is an old & historic hotel. Just walking in the lobby you can feel and see the history. The architecture & ambience of the hotel is like no other I've experienced. The hotel lounge area is dimly lit with a 2 horse statue in the center. (the plaque underneath is worth the read). Apparently, hauntings are also part of the hotel; but that makes it even more unique. The staff has literature available for those interested in the history of Mr. Driskill, the hotel, and hauntings. It was an interesting read. Once when valet parking our car, the valet guy said he had photos of the "ghosts" they captured on the security camera. We saw the photo and was mesmerized. ;) The rooms were comfy enough for our stay. A TV with a locked & stocked refrigerator can be found underneath. Coffee is available free of charge just to the right of the reception/ front desk in the mornings. A Business center is also available with two desktops who share a printer & a fitness center/ gym is available but we didn't visit it. The hotel is walking distance to the Capitol, however, we had to drive to the restaurant in the evening (which we decided would be Clay Pit; an Indian restaurant, the restaurant was great, by the way.

Pros:  Loved the architecture and the history of the hotel. They provided literature on the hauntings & history. Location is also good; we walked to the Capitol easily. Business center was available.
Cons:  Not a lot worth mentioning on dislikes about the hotel.
