One should take the time to actually walk through the hotel, read the historical notes to understand how much The Driskill contributed to the Nations history. It's always a delight to find something previously missed. The elegance of the surroundings, close proximity to anything you would want to get to in Austin.

It is located in downtown Austin, close to Lady Bird Lake, the Capital and lots of downtown activities.

Pros:  The entire hotel: The lobby has about 20 foot ceilings, the hallways are lined with original paintings. Everything is amazing about the place, down to the shower heads.
Cons:  Our room was a little small.

Pros:  Very friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful food. Beautifully maintained, historic hotel.
Cons:  The Curio Room we had was unbelievably small and next to the elevator. Will be sure to request a better room/room location next time.
