Steeped in history, The Driskill offers an effective combination of originality, hospitality and an excellent location on 6th Street, right in the heart of Austin's entertainment district.

Originally built in 1886 by Colonel Jesse Driskill, The Driskill has undergone an extensive renovation to bring back its 19th-century glory days. Each room and suite blends contemporary decor with unique historical artwork and comes equipped with luxury linens, terrycloth robes and free Wi-Fi. It's said that Colonel Driskill's ghost has been known to walk the halls, so keep an eye out for him.

The AAA 4-Diamond Driskill Grill was named one of Zagat's Top 25 US Hotel Restaurants in 2011 and dishes up a bounty of locally sourced produce and game. After dinner, grab a drink in the Texas-style Driskill Bar complete with a longhorn mounted above the fireplace, cowhide upholstery, tin ceilings and live music. Then head out to explore Austin's nightlife; the hotel is walking distance of the opera, symphony, and the renowned 6th Street music scene, not to mention more than 200 live music venues.

Be sure to take a wander over to the meeting rooms -- these served as campaign headquarters for former president Lyndon B. Johnson throughout his congressional, and later presidential career. The results of the 1964 presidential election were viewed by Johnson in the Jim Hogg Room.
