Lonely Planet review
Every city should have a beautiful old historic hotel made out of native stone, preferably built in the late 1800s by a wealthy cattle baron. No generic hotel decor here; this place is pure Texas, from the leather couches to the mounted longhorn head on the wall. (Not to worry: the elegant rooms are taxidermy-free.)
A bit of trivia? LBJ and Lady Bird had their first date here. Valet parking is a lofty $28 per night.
Our independent authors have visited The Driskill and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Downtown.
