With all the positive reviews, I decided to gamble on the Drury Inn & Suites in Orlando for a three-night stay in October. The hotel certainly lived up to expectations, and I can easily recommend the property.
What’s good: Our suite was roomy, clean, and well appointed, with a door separating the bedroom from the rest of the suite. The bathroom was strategically located outside of the master bathroom. No matter what time of the day or night, we got service with a smile from the front desk.
The location is great, just off I-4 and very close to International Drive, so you really have great access to any of the parks. It’s also a quick drive to restaurants and the convention center. The hotel is built behind a 7-11, so you can literally walk to the convenience store without leaving the parking lot – and you won’t need to search for a place to fill your gas tank.
The free breakfast area was one of the better ones I’ve experienced, with plenty of seating and plenty of choices. We didn’t use the fitness area, but it includes several choices for cardio work. The pool was clean and well maintained, and having an indoor section was a nice touch.
Nitpicks: Really not much wrong with the property, but I would encourage management to turn up the temperature a bit in the “heated” pool and lower the temperature a bit in the hot tub. Also, our suite had a security chain/bar on the door, but it was installed near the doorknob – within easy reach our young daughter (really needs to be higher). And neither my wife nor I were impressed with the pillows. Pretty minor stuff, all things considered, and they certainly won’t prevent me from pricing this hotel for future visits to Orlando.
