Welcome to the Driskill. The oldest operating hotel in Austin. This historic hotel was built in 1886 as the showplace of Col Jesse Driskill, a cattle baron. His vision was to create the grandest hotel in the region. The Driskill remains a landmark of legendary Texas hospitality. Located on 6th Street in the heart of Downtown, the hotel is within walking distance to all the best the city has to offer - the Texas State Capitol, Austin Convention Center, opera, symphony, fine dining, shopping, and Austin's 6th Street music scene - and more.
Restored to its original beauty, the classic Romanesque style hotel features marble floors, a balcony overlooking Downtown, a spectacular columned lobby and an open rotunda that sits under a beautiful stained glass dome.
The Driskill also features two restaurants, bridal suites, and a grand ballroom where elegant gatherings often take place. A member of The Historic Hotels of America, The Driskill is among the world's finest hotels, offering an unforgettable level of luxury and service.
