    Ornate, comfortable setting. Young man at check in was very courteous, as was the bartender. Bathroom was average for a 'Senator' room (501).

    The staff at the Driskill was unbelievable! Extremely friendly, proffessional, and helpfull. The hotel itself is a stunning Austin landmark. The valet parking was a great value and the valets were fast and friendly. I will always book here in the future if I need a central hotel. I love the character of the 100+ year old building and the enthusiastic staff.

    It is a downtown hotel, so there is some noise. No more than I expected and everything else makes this worth a bit of noise.

    The Driskill is a historic hotel in the heart of downtown Austin. The lobby is beautiful and the staff is very friendly.

    It is overpriced for a tiny room and very uncomfortable bed. We have stayed at the Hilton and Stephen F. Austin in the area, and they were superior in overall comfort of stay. They were also significantly less expensive.

    The beautiful ambiance of the hotel and good food

    our room was next to the elevator, so it wasn't as quiet as we had hoped

    The food.

    The maid dressed the bed shorting the sheets.

    The hotel is beautiful and historic.

    There are some minor deferred maintenance issues that need to be attended to. The pillows were uncomfortable.

    I liked the beauty and decor of the hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable -- no sore back in the morning!

    The size of the room was small compared to other hotels in its class but I think that is to be expected of an historic hotel.

    It was gorgeous!! We stayed there on our wedding night and the staff was amazing to us!

    Finally a hotel in the us which I will remember! The Hilton's, Marriotts, etc have no personality or history, the Driskill does. Feels like a boutique hotel rather than yet another boring business hotel.

    I hated the valet only parking. I asked for other options and the staff did not know (which they should!) But this is just a personal remark (just like I find bell boys useless which surprisingly the hotel does not have) There were bathrobes but no slippers. Staff could be a bit better trained to receive international guests. I wish the hotel had a swimming pool

    The ambience.

    The service at the restaurant on nye left much to be desired.

    I liked the grandeur of the common areas.

    The room was smallish.
