Austin's most renowned hotel, The Driskill is stylishly grand and opulent. It has recently had the mother of all makeovers. It is an ideal abode because of its proximity to both the corporate as well as the entertainment districts of Austin. The rooms are splendid; each of the 205 guestrooms have been done up in turn-of-the-century Victorian design. If you spend the night look out for the supernatural, some claim this hotel is haunted. Take a walk down the beautiful lobby bedecked with hand-made marble, hand-painted ceilings and a custom-made stained glass dome. Such luxury is hard to leave behind!
This collection of villas, each with its own Texas style, is perfect for a romantic getaway or your corporate retreat. Every room overlooks the lake, with many offering balconies. Golfers will enjoy the convenience of three golf courses located nearby and wine lovers will be close enough to walk to the Slaughter/Leftwich winery.
For decades, this accommodation was your typical drive-in motel, but it has been transformed into a unique bungalow-style hotel. The hotel itself has an urban minimalist feel with concrete floors and handcrafted furniture. Framed posters of legendary rock and blues acts that form a part of Austin's music history grace the walls of each room. This pet-friendly hotel even occasionally hosts events. Hotel San José is as culturally "groovy" as it gets.
