The Driskill is a charming and old world hotel that has been updated. The room was beautifully appointed. The bar area is like having a drink in someone's living room. The food was excellent. And the staff were friendly and helpful.

We were at the bar and people was casual but elegant, not shorts or sandals... kind of like date night - I have to imagine that the restaurant for the hotel would be elegant as well.
