I recently stayed at this hotel on a business trip. I was told this is a fairly new hotel. I would say that it was new. The hotel is well docorated. I had a very easy checkin. The front desk clerk even asked if I was getting the corporate rate and checked it for me. I was in room 700... More

We found this hotel through the AAA book although my nephew has recommended it to us in the past because we travel with our dog. What a GREAT hotel! The lobby was spotless and well-lit, front desk staff very helpful. Our room was spotless and well appointed. It was quiet and the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was... More

The Drury Inn & Suites Independence is the hotel that we always stay at when visiting Kansas City. The facility is newer and always clean. The location is right along Interstate 70 and there is a lot of restaurant choices within a mile of the hotel. Independence mall is only a five minute car ride away. The staff is always... More

We stayed at this property on Christmas night. We were impressed that the free dinner was still provided on a holiday and when so few people were staying at the hotel. This property follows the Drury formula with nice rooms, comfortable beds and free breakfast. The staff were friendly. We would stay here again.

Booked this for 2 nights due to Trip Advisor reviews. What a nice property! EVERYTHING about it is outstanding. We were especially delighted with their 5:30 pm buffet style "dinner". We had not intended to travel with our small dog, but decided to take him when it said pet friendly. Our room was near the stairs and outside door on... More

This was our second year in a row using this Drury Inn. Only a couple of years old and it has everything going for it. beautiful lobby and food area, great rooms and a fine staff. If you're traveling on I-35, it's worth the drive to find this hotel.

We attended a concert at the Independence Events Center and wanted to stay close and I had some points I could use, so we chose our first choice in hotels, Drury Inn. The Drury Inn & Suites, Independence, did not disappoint. When we arrived, I asked about a taxi service that might be able to shuttle us to and from... More

I have used Drury Inns occasionally but when I can find one I stay with them. They have a great breakfast spread and and beautiful dining area. They also have an evening snack time with wine and beer and other drinks. What a... More

Due to all the positive TA reviews, we skipped the Staybridge Suites and stayed here for 2 nights. If this is the prototype for new Drury Inns, they will easily compete with other national chains. Very new, 7 stories and large floor to ceiling windows that bring in beautiful views on the non-freeway side. An upscale lobby and well-laid out... More

We stopped to get popcorn on the way to our room from the pool. My 10 year old daughter and her friends were obviously in swim-suits and did not have covers. Staff approaches (Caleb) and said this was serious and that we agreed to wear shoes and shirts In Public when we signed in!! Caleb was absolutely not kind When... More
