The Driskill Hotel in Austin

Austin, Texas, United States :

The Driskill Hotel in Austin is beautiful and interesting; historic art, amazing ballroom, etc, but it goes way beyond that. The staff is incredibly helpful and eager to please. They let us check in early, moved us from a queen bed to a king with no issue, and after a small problem with the billing, they even left us a tin of treats in our room with a handwritten note apologizing. They have a great bar, with delicious food (queso and bacon wrapped dates were our favorites) and drinks. The rooms are a great mix of historic and modern. They have framed pictures of the hotel back when it first opened and some cool old-time furniture, but they are also kept up to date with super comfortable beds, high quality bedding, etc. Some people say it's haunted, but that just adds to the charm. Marble floors and leather wingbacks in the lobby, fine local art in the hallways, silk sheets on the beds, heavily-draped curtains and a beautiful, ornate decor. And it's close to 6th St
