“Sex and the City” treatment at Austin’s Driskill Hotel

Hotels, What's New — By Tara Hall on June 7, 2010 at 9:14 pm

The Driskill Hotel is a swanky downtown boutique that sparks images of Presidential watch parties and fancy ballroom soirees. Sometimes it seems a little, well, stodgy and not so hip. But times, they are a-changin’.

Perhaps in an effort to modernize their image, or maybe because they simply like the movie and its cheeky fashion sense, the management of the Driskill Hotel has created the “Carrie On to the Driskill Hotel” package for ladies who want to live the “Sex and the City” lifestyle while in the Live Music Capital.

Available now through August 31, the fashionista-centric package includes:

  • A one-night reservation in luxury accommodations
  • Champagne & cupcakes (one per person) from award-winning pastry chef Tony Sansalone at 1886 Cafe & Bakery upon arrival
  • A special excursion to Austin’s Neiman Marcus, located in The Domain. Guests can choose between a private luncheon with a fashion presentation of the latest trends, or makeovers at the posh store’s Beauty Bar, complete with wine and cheese or lunch and an afternoon of shopping with the help of personal stylists

And the icing on the proverbial cake: every guest who takes advantage of SATC-inspired package will have her name entered into a drawing to win a pair of Manolo Blahniks straight from the fall line, courtesy of Neiman Marcus Austin. (The drawing will take place Sept. 1.)
