The centrally located Driskill Hotel is listed as one of the "Historic Hotels of America" by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Built in 1886 as the showplace of a cattle baron, The Driskill remains a landmark of legendary Texas hospitality. Its elegant lobby boasts marble floors, and its luxurious rooms include the Cattle Baron suite. The Driskill Hotel is Austin's only hotel that enjoys a "Leading Hotels of the World" membership. Restored to its original opulence, The Driskill sets the standard for elegance in Austin, Texas. From the magnificent columned lobby with its marble floors and stained-glass dome to the classic décor of the 189 guestrooms and suites, The Driskill ensures that every stay is a memorable one. Its fantastic central downtown location means you can simply walk out the door and onto Sixth Street to hear all the live music Austin has to offer. 2016 marks the 130th anniversary of the Driskill, and in recognition of this major milestone the hotel has completely renovated the guest rooms, and redesigned the menu at The Driskill Grill.
