Duck into the cool, dim hush of the Driskill, and be transported to a time when a gunfight in the lobby was not unheard of. These days, the watchful gaze of Col. Driskill from his truly enormous portrait on the grand staircase still reminds us to be civilized as we relax under the famous stained-glass skylight. When not being used for photo shoots, the women's room at the Driskill stands ready to comfort everyone from a lady with the vapors to a tourist in need of comfort. Its famous pink marble floors and individual "vaults" are presided over by huge pink calla lilies in stained glass, making it a destination of its own.
