The Driskill—austin, Texas

Posted by beckyrepp , 21 October 2010 · 470 views

I took a quick business trip last month to Austin, Texas. The trip was so short that I had absolutely no time for playing tourist. However, I stayed at a beautiful historic hotel: the Driskill. (I figured that I needed to see something of historic interest while I was in Austin!).

The Driskill was built in 1886 and is listed as one of the Historic Hotels of America. You may read a bit about the history here: http://www.driskillh...exas-hotel.php. An historic time line may be found at: http://www.driskillh...ls-timeline.php

The hotel was beautiful and the service was spectacular. The rate for a basic room, after taking advantage of one of their special offers, was comparable to other hotels in the area. There are special price offers at their website: http://www.driskillh...cial-offers.php

The only downside of staying at the Driskill was the road construction taking place downtown. The construction made navigating the downtown area a bit challenging. That inconvenience aside, I would recommend an overnight stay at the Driskill.
