THE DRISKILL HOTEL
Built in 1886, the Driskill is a downtown landmark as welcoming as it is stunning. Splurge for a night or twoâ dÃ©cor touches are rustic without being cloying, like wrought-iron bed frames and plush cow-print pillowsâ or simply stop into the bar. Order something classic like an Old Fashioned, check out the live music, look for the impressive taxidermied bull head, and chat with the barkeeps. They're very friendly here (this is Texas, after all).
