“Good value and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Stayed at the Drury for an event that was taking place at the attached convention center. Very good choice as it was easy to get to and from the events taking place inside the convention center. The nicest part of staying here is the complimentary food they serve in the evening. When we were there, they served chicken fingers, Mac n cheese, hot dogs, nachos, soup, salad, etc. quite impressive. You also receive three free drinks per adult. Unlimited soft drinks too. Breakfast is also free and equally as good. Parking was included in the price of the room and was in a secure garage attached to the hotel. Front desk employees were extremely friendly. Only issue I had was that our room (#832) smelled of smoke even though it is a non smoking hotel. Overall a good value, I would stay again.

I just cannot say enough nice things about the Drury chain. I'm a mid-tier business traveler, and their rooms rock. Lots of electrical plug ins. I think the staff are really helpful.

I've been there on weekend business trips: the place is great for kids w/the free breakfast and dinner. As an adult, I'm not interested in the stuff they have at night, but if you have kids, it looks perfect -- hot dogs, meatballs, mac & cheese, that sort of thing.

Room Tip: There are rooms in the center of the floors that have floor to ceiling windows. I really like those...

The hotel was in a great location, staff was always available and very helpful. Rooms were very well maintained and very clean. Happy hour each evening with free drinks (3) and food - included with stay, as is Breakfast each morning. Which is a savings to families and individuals.
Would utilize them in the future

Room Tip: Ask for the suite, usually minimal or no additional chage

If you're looking for affordable lodgings in downtown Columbus this is it. The price was right and the place was clean and friendly. It is right next to the convention center. They have a good free breakfast. I always love a waffle station. They also have a free happy hour. They did have a parking fee but it's downtown and their garage is secure. I needed an inexpensive one night stay in Columbus and I found it. If I'm back in Columbus someday I'll stay here.

This was a stop on a long road trip. The hotel is located in a very busy area and navigating the small one way roads to the hotel can be tricky. Check-in was easy and we appreciated the security all around. You need to use your key to access the parking garage and all elevators. We were given a coupon for 3 drinks at the bar upon our arrival, including beer and wine. It was a nice touch. The late afternoon/evening snacks were nice but they are your typical junk food options of nachos and hot dogs.
We stayed here primarily because they accept dogs and checking in with our dog was not an issue. There isn't a lot of walkable grassy areas for dogs, but you are in a busy city center. Sidewalks are easy to find and this is a great option for your dogs. Be aware you are directly on a busy street.
The only issue we had was the doors are very thin so we were woken up a few times by late night arriving guests. There were some noisy kids running up and down the hallways that was also an issue for our dog. Just be aware that this is a very, very busy hotel and there will be people everywhere and you will hear them.
Breakfast is a hot buffet and has some nice options. However, because the hotel is so crowded the one waffle maker and small quantity of places to sit make breakfast something you may not be able to enjoy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of the hallway to avoid all the hallway traffic noise.

We hadn't previously tried the Drury Inn chain of hotels but in need of a place in Columbus which would accommodate our family and our dog, we were delighted to have found this gem!

Great location in central Columbus, excellent helpful staff, superb pet policy and bonuses in the form of free food and drink in the evening made this unbeatable value for money.

We have already followed up with another Drury Inn stay and delighted to say the standards were just as high and we will be repeat customers from here on!!

This hotel is my preferred choice when in downtown Columbus. It is close to everything. Great for Business at the convention center. The food is good, the drinks every evening a plus! You can walk to Nationwide and the arena district! Max and Ermas across the street. Staff is pleasant. Rooms were clean and bed was comfortable.
