Built in 1886 as the showplace of a cattle baron, The Driskill remains a landmark of legendary Texas hospitality. Located on Sixth Street in the heart of downtown Austin, the iconic, historic hotel is convenient to all that the city has to offer, including the Texas State Capitol, convention center, opera, symphony, fine dining, shopping, and Austin's 6th Street music scene. Known as the "Live Music Capital of the World,®" Austin is home to nearly 200 music venues, many within walking distance of The Driskill.
The saying goes: “Everything’s bigger in Texas.” No description is more befitting of The Driskill. Looming large in the Lone Star State’s rich history, the hotel’s dedication to service, memorable experiences, rich culinary delights and welcoming warmth are equally Texas-sized. Stroll through the opulent lobby with its marble floors and stained-glass dome, corridors filled with museum-quality artwork, and grand mezzanine for a glimpse into the hotel’s storied past. Rest well in the serene comfort of one of the 189 newly revitalized guestrooms and suites. Meet, mix and mingle in the rustic, Texas bar with daily live music, or reserve one of the remarkable, out-of-the-ordinary event spaces. Indulge in a variety of flavors sourced in Austin and around the Lone Star State. A visit to The Driskill is simply unforgettable – we’d be honored to welcome you for a truly memorable stay.
