Designed with a distinct Romanesque-style in 1886, The Driskill is one of the oldest hotels in the country. Built by Jesse Driskill, a cattleman who spent his entire fortune on attempting to build one of the finest hotels in the area, the building is a popular meeting place for prominent lobbyists, legislators, and leaders. Wander inside and experience the lavish interior of the lobby and stop and have a drink at the bar while listening to live music.

Love this hotel. It is near everything, charming and superbly staffed. If you appreciate historical properties over slick and modern, definitely the best hotel to stay at downtown. And the cinnamon roll is an absolute must have. Delicious!
Our stay was beyond wonderful. The front desk staff was unbelievably kind and accommodating. Room service and valet were outstanding. The in-hotel cafe was great; my only complaint would be that the service was a little bit inattentive and the prices seemed really high. The food was spectacular, though! We will be staying again!
