This month, The Driskill is thrilled to be featured in the cover story of Texas Meetings + Events Magazine as one of the Austin-area’s most memorable spaces for executive retreats and meetings.

When you’ve been around for 128 years, you’re bound to build a little character and have a few stories to tell. At The Driskill, every room tells a story. Whether it’s the vaulted trompe l’oeil dome and crystal chandeliers in The Driskill Ballroom, the gold leaf mirrors in The Maximilian Room, or the history of Lyndon B. Johnson’s election-watching parties and inaugural balls on the Mezzanine, each space adds an element of rich history that is sure to foster a creative environment for your next executive event. 



Featuring more than 18,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, nine lavish meeting rooms and 189 guest rooms and suites, The Driskill makes doing business a pleasure. Our capacity to host groups in almost any size with smart audiovisual, wireless capabilities, and talented culinary and event teams will add a touch of classical elegance to any professional event.


After a hard day’s work, The Driskill is the perfect place to kick up your feet, or if you’re feeling more adventurous, explore the city of Austin. Located on historic Sixth Street in the heart of downtown, The Driskill is within walking distance of a picnic lunch on the lawn of The Texas State Capitol, a show at the Paramount Theatre, kayaking on Lady Bird Lake, top-rated dining, and of course, plenty of live music venues.


For a creative, professional event there’s no better place to be than The Driskill. If you have any questions about planning your next event with us, please contact 512-391-7133. We’d love to have you!
