The Driskill Historic Hotel, St, Austin, Texas, USA – Heroes Of Adventure

The Driskill Historic Hotel, St, Austin, Texas, USA

One of Austin’s oldest historic landmarks, The Driskill is known for its opulent marble lobby and leathered lounge – and the ghostly guests that are rumoured to haunt its halls. The romantically lit bar, with signature and seasonal craft cocktails and snacks, is the epitome of old-world style, lined with stately portraits (try a “Batini”, a vodka concoction made with hibiscus, named the official cocktail of Austin in 2010).

Rooms range in size from converted former staff quarters to skyline-view suites; or, if you’re feeling fancy, there’s the famed LBJ Presidential Suite, designed for dignitaries but often occupied by A-listers. The hotel’s 6th Street-facing patios are perfect for people-watching and, when the sun goes down, you’re literally steps from the city’s famed entertainment strip.
