Best Lobby / Waiting Room

The Driskill Hotel

If you wanted to convey the grandeur of the Driskill lobby, you could use words like "opulent," "posh," or "lavish." Or you could describe the imposing three-story columns, the sparkling marble floors, or the kind of stained-glass ceiling fixture that stuntmen were born to dive through. You'd never know that, in 1908, two Texas lawyers had a gunfight right here. So just call it what it is: fancy-schmancy.
