Our take on The Driskill - in the Unbound Collection by Hyatt

Built in 1886 as a showplace for cattle baron Jesse Lincoln Driskill, the exquisitely restored Driskill hotel stands as a genteel oasis harking back to Austin’s past. Located in the jumping environs of 6th Avenue and within shouting distance of the state capitol and numerous museums, the Driskill’s spell is cast as soon as you walk into the magnificent marble lobby, past ivory columns soaring to ornate ceilings, palm trees, and colonnades, soft, tooled -leather furnishings, and sumptuous brocade drapes. The 189 rooms and suites of this glamorous downtown Austin hotel are divided among the historic 1886 wing and the newer Tower, added in 1929. With an intriguing blend of classic furnishings and modern touches, the guest rooms feature burnished reproduction antiques and historic artwork, with just a hint of urban edge. Plasma TVs, complimentary wireless Internet, stocked mini-bars, fruit baskets and plush robes are just a few of the touches that enhance a stay at the Driskill. And who knows -- you may run into a few statesmen or celebrities in this iconic hotel, and perhaps a few ghosts too (it's rumored the spirit of Jesse Driskell himself haunts these historic halls) -- but don't be scared.
