Built in 1886 by cattleman and ex-Confederate Colonel Jesse Driskill, whose goal was to create a “frontier palace,” The Driskill continues to be one of the most well-known hotels in Texas and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Renovated several times, most recently in 2015, the Driskill has 189 restored rooms and suites that feature contemporary artwork and custom furniture. Its Romanesque exterior, with arched entrances and brick and limestone from the area, is a distinctive landmark along Sixth Street in the heart of Austin’s downtown music and entertainment district.
