After hearing several rumors over the past week, Hyatt confirmed Friday the purchase of The Driskill hotel in downtown Austin. The Driskill is a gorgeous 127 year old property with a perfect location in downtown Austin near the “Raucous on 6th street” . While the hotel is haunted, I have enjoyed several late nights sipping martinis at the bar without incident.
The landmark hotel will keep The Driskill name. The hotel does have a home on the Hyatt website though it is currently in limited fashion. It appears the hotel is bookable as a category 5 Hyatt at 18,000 points per night.
The bottom line
This is an exciting addition of a great hotel in a great city to the Hyatt hotel portfolio.
