Spend Halloween in a Local Haunted Hotel

Austin's historic Driskill Hotel offers a "ghostly" special package deal for All Hallows Eve.

This time of year, Austin's historic Driskill Hotel (6th & Brazos, 391-1712) makes the most of its designation as the "most haunted hotel in Texas" with a special Driskill After Dark package deal. Guests can get special rates on accommodations as well as a guided tour of the identified haunted areas of the grand old hotel, the opportunity to observe all the garish and ghoulish costumed Halloween festivities on East 6th Street from the Driskill's popular balcony overlooking the scene, plus treats (or tricks) at turndown time. Not to be outdone, Driskill Grill Executive Chef Jonathan Gelman and Pastry Chef Tony Sansalone have created a special five-course Fright Night tasting menu featuring such items as Monster Maitake Mushrooms, Hatchet Chop of Venison, and the Devil's Chocolate Crunch Bar. Dinner is $85 per person or $135 per person with wine pairings and reservations are suggested
