“Great place to rest your head”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We were surprised when we pulled up to this Drury, it is very different from the others we have stayed at. The layout is completely different, no indoor/outdoor pool, much more open. We were dissapointed with our two room suite. The bathroom is in the bedroom, so our daughter needed to come through our room to use bathroom. She wakes up very early and woke us up. We are used to the room being a long rectangle with the bathroom in the middle, not here. Our room was more of a circle, just really poorly laid out. As always though, the staff was great, really friendly, though we did get locked out of the hotel when we visited the pool. There was a sign that read push button for entrance, but it didn't work. We ended up needing to call the desk and let us in. Thank goodness I had brought my phone. Breakfast was great, and the shuttle to the airport was quick and easy. We were bummed out that we arrived half an hour after kickback and the gal at the desk was new to the area and couldn't direct us to a quick place to eat. We would stay here again, but I don't know that we would pay for the suite.

Room Tip: pass on the two room suite, bathroom is located in the bedroom so any hope for privacy is blown.

My flight was cancelled so I had to find a place to stay for the night. The airline suggested this hotel, and the price was $59 a night! Not sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised at how clean and nice this hotel was when I arrived. It's a great place, nothing too fancy but I tell you, I've been in hotels that were 5x the cost but not as nice!
Only down side was that it didn't have a bar so we had to go across the street to the Hilton Garden Inn.

We stayed here one night before we left on vacation and left our car for the two weeks we were gone. This is the best preflight hotel we have ever stayed in. I almost hate for people to find out about it.
We were so surprised at the amenities...the happy hour was more like dinner with meatballs and pasta, salad and many toppings, hot dogs for the kids, soup, etc. They also had fruit and popcorn to munch on later. The manager walked around to greet people as we ate and was so pleasant.
The breakfast started too early for us, but we were able to grab a muffin and banana.
The room was so comfortable and roomy. I usually don't sleep the night before a flight, especially in a hotel, but I did here.
Our ride to and from the airport was fast and on time.

This was an excellent find being the first place we tried in Phoenix on our way south. The overal package may appear at first sight a little on the expensive side. However, when broken down the package becomes a very good value stay. On arrival we found the staff pleasant and obviously keen to sell, providing very comprhensive information about what was included. The room we were allocated was on the 6th floor and although near the airport we were not unduly disturbed by aircraft movements. The quality of fittings was excellent, as was the overall package. Would most certainly go again.

Very surprised at the amenities, cleanliness, hospitality. Shocked at how quiet and vacant is was. Complimentary Breakfast and free happy hour. The room was clean and spacious.I didn't have a chance to view pool or 24 hour fitness area. The only downside is the hotel location, is near an area that is a bit unsavory. But that's Phoenix for ya!

Very convenient, near the airport but sadly not as good as expected. Our room looked good but was next to the noisy ice machine and close to the atrium, where the voices of a couple chatting carried upwards.

Arriving from England we wanted to go to sleep early and expected the hotel might have taken this into account when allocating the room. We had seen previous reviews and expected a more considerate approach, as the hotel is near the airport with visitors from Europe.

The receptionist was very helpful and found us a quiet room, though with two Queens not the King we had booked.

Breakfast is provided late on a Sunday so we ate at the Waffle House a short walk away as planned. Breakfast at the same time every day of the week would be helpful.

(Also we could not get any benefit of from the evening snacks as our flight got in just too late)

The hotel is convenient and clean but may not be the best option for older people travelling from Europe.

Room Tip: Ask for a quieter room away from the Atrium

DruryHotels, General Manager at Drury Inn & Suites Phoenix Airport, responded to this review, October 24, 2013
Thank you for sharing your feedback and for staying with us at the Drury Inn & Suites Phoenix Airport. We appreciate all comments from our guests and will use them to improve our service. It is unfortunate that you were not able to take advantage of our 5:30 Kickback with food and drinks, and our Hot Breakfast buffet as well. Hopefully, you will have the opportunity to enjoy all we have to offer during a future visit.

With our proximity to the airport, we host many international travelers. I hope you will give us another chance and stay with us the next time you are in Phoenix... we would love to have you as our guest again!

Thank you,
Keith Kirk
General Manager

I have done plenty of traveling but never stayed at a Drury. How can you not like the free happy hour and great breakfast. Used the gym which is open 24 hours...quiet, nice rooms and great price. DRURY, you have yourself a new customer!!

Room Tip: I asked for top floor
