“Real and sincere attention to detail, but couldn't ignore construction.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Clearly the personnel at the Drury are dedicated to customer service, but the on-going internal construction was a serious annoyance. Their service couldn't overcome the slow elevators, sharing the elevators with construction workers - however respectful - and the accidental fire alarms. That said, my room was clean, bed was very comfortable and location just want I wanted when attending a conference. Breakfast was nothing special and served with styrofoam and plastic.

Room Tip: If you ordered a suite, as I did, and are say they overbooked, insist.

This was our first experience at a Drury Inn and Suites hotel and it was a good one.
The hotel is a little dated in places. Our room was spacious, the bed was soft and comfortable (although might perhaps be a little bouncy if you are on the heavier side) and there were two types of pillow (foam and feather) to give options depending on your preference.

There was plenty of cupboard space, a decent sized and very clean bath/shower, with 'dressing room' space with sink just adjacent.

It's just 5 minutes walk to the convention centre and all the extras, like free internet (exceptionally fast!), drinks and breakfast, are an excellent inclusion - full marks to Drury for doing this, it's the way it should be!

Staff were friendly and efficient. My only real criticism was the cleaning of rooms - all we could pick as having been done was the beds being made and the towels changed. No additional tidying, such as the ironing board not put away...just some of the basics you'd expect as being done elsewhere.

Overall, a very good stay and recommended, especially given all the extras included free of charge.

The first thing I will say is that you will not go hungry at a Drury Hotel. Their evening happy hour is quite substantial, you get three free drinks and all kinds of food from baked potato to chili to hot dogs to nachos. They even have salad and popcorn! So, that was convenient. Ditto for the breakfast. The hotel is under renovation so it's a bit of a jumble right now. I was travelling with my dog and this wasn't the most convenient place to stay. I dont know if there are new elevators coming on line, but the elevators were small, slow and old. Usually a 5 minute wait. There is an inner atrium with a pool that was closed, but looks nice. My room was an inner room (I think a lot of them are) so it "looks out" on to the atrium, which means there is no natural light. If you like sleeping in a really dark room then this is it. The room was newly renovated and very nice. Parking is included and I. The same building. There is a park across the street to take your dog. Walking distance to the Arch.

I arrived there for a conference in mid-May. The lady, Mary, at the front desk, was very kind and personable. She made me aware of the renovations at the beginning of the conversation. Offered a coupon for a stay there post-renovation (but I had no reason to return). The room was clean, the staff were all friendly, the free hot breakfast and evening drinks and snacks were a nice touch. The stay was quiet during the evening, though construction was taking place during the day. I would have liked to have been there when the pool and hot tub were available, though. The location is perfect for the Convention Center. Easy access to the Metro Link. I felt secure at the hotel. The parking garage was fantastic, and the ice machine was easily accessible. I loved that the TV had a wide selection of channels, the room had a refrigerator and microwave. The room was spacious. The bed and pillow were extremely comfortable. The newly-tiled floor was evident that they were doing a great job remodeling the rooms. The water was hot and had great pressure. This was my first time staying at a Drury Inn, but it won't be my last.

Room Tip: If you want easy access to the pool, hot tub, or fitness center, get a room on the inside. If you w...

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in May. Had I known how much the renovations would impact the stay I would not have stayed. I was put on the 5th floor, seemed to be the center of the renovations. Construction noise throughout the day, lots of it. Jack hammering began around 10:00 in the morning. Construction caused the fitness center and pool closed. Construction dirt, dust, and white wallboard powder in the elevators and the hallways. Getting an elevator up or down was a huge issue as you were always 'battling" with the construction crews whose equipment and materials took over the space. Not sure of the safety of the area, the front door was locked in the evening, and the elevators on the first floor could only be used with your room card. All that being said: room was comfortable and spacious. Bedding quite comfortable. Hotel room included free wifi, free breakfast, hot food at dinnertime. Take away the construction issues and this would be at least a 4 star place to stay. Within walking distance to the Convention Center. A few restaurants and a movie theater two blocks away. The neighborhood very quiet at night, undergoing renewal with signs of new business moving in. The hotel is in the space of the old Farmer's Market, old looking building on the outside and looking much newer on the inside.

Room Tip: If construction still in progress ask which floor they are working on and stay on some other floor.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding your recent stay with us. I am sorry to hear that the renovation interrupted your stay. I have good news, we are nearing the end of the renovation, and this week we have completed the work that causes major disruption such as noise and interruption of services. Work on the guest room floors is expected to be fully completed by the end of May. I hope that you will join us again as our guest so you can enjoy our completed fresh, new look!

Warmest Regards,

Autumn Simerson

Check in was easy as we were with a group. The hotel is historic and is under renovation - very clean room and comfortable bed. Our window overlooked the atrium which is not bad - some want to see outside but atrium was great as it make us feel like we had a balcony. Service was great - Free breakfast every morning which includes good eggs, sausage, potatoes and you can make your own waffles, just a great free breakfast another amenity is popcorn after 3pm and free cocktails (adult beverages) and Hors d’ oeuvre it was a very pleasant visit to a City so rich with history the staff was excellent, I highly recommend. Just a good experience all the way.

Room Tip: If you want to see outdoors ask for King bed most of those are on the outer perimeter.

The location of the hotel is walkable to the main attractions and restaurants even though is near the highway, but it is ok.

During my stay, the hotel was in the process of a renovation on the 5 floor. I thought I was going to be awake, but surprisingly they kept the noise to a minimum and within the hours advertised.

The breakfast and 5:30 kick back was moved to the mezzanine which was served and provided in a Buffett setting. For breakfast they had scrabble eggs, sausage patties, yogurt, some whole fruit and coffee,teas. The 5:30 kick back had pasta, meatballs and hot dogs in addition to chips , soda and popcorn. That was nice!

Despite the long hallway (to the distance of the elevators), the rooms or walls were pretty thick. I was able to have a quite night. The room was appointed with old decor but it was spacious. I actually liked the arch window which is a nice character.

The shower head and mounted dispensers in the shower were amazing!!!

I would like to be back once they are done with the renovation. Hopefully the rooms are remodeled then.

Overall ok but every renovation is tough on keeping the hotel with warmth
