My girlfriend and I stayed for one night the day before Memorial Day as we were making our way back home to North Carolina. We had a dog with us (12 lbs Boston Terrier) so we needed to find a hotel that would allow our pet to come with us. We arrived late and the staff was very attentive and friendly. What I found most impressive of the front desk staff was their attention to our dog. Rather than informing us where the dog was not allowed to go, the staff told us it was ok for the dog to be on a leash and roam. I thought that this was a nice touch since hotels can be very "particular" about allowing pets in the building.
We were tired from the trip so we didn't scope out the amenities, but there is a pool and free popcorn for the guests.
Parking costs $12 per night, which is worth it because you park in a very secure garage inside of the hotel. The hotel's parking deck is spacious and I noticed that they have cameras that capture the license tag of every car that parks in their deck. This does not mean leave your possessions in the car, but it acts as a very good deterrent
Access to the hotel's parking deck as well as the floors with the rooms require a key. A random person can come to the hotel and enjoy the dining area but without a key they will not be able to get access to any of the floors where the guests stay. This is good for the safety conscious who are unfamiliar with Columbus, OH.
We enjoyed a delicious breakfast that was very filling. There was scrambled eggs, sausage, home fries and assorted baked goods. Its a bit more upscale than your typical continental breakfast.
The Drury Inn is focused on comfort, the hotel is a little dated and the room was a little small. We also had a window but it had a view of their mezzanine area that also served as a storage unit. Not very attractive but like I said, we were only there to spend the night so it was not a big deal for us since we just shut the blinds. The bed is very comfortable and the room is very clean, there is no hair dryer but a quick call to the front desk can solve that problem.
There is not a lot of closet space either but unless you were planning on staying a week in Columbus, this would not be a big deal.
There is fast internet throughout the hotel and I had very good service. There is also a small business center in the lobby with a printer which the hotel offers as a complimentary service.
The Drury Inn is located in front of a couple of nice restaurants, sadly most were closed on Sunday but if you are staying during the week you have a good selection of affordable restaurants.
This hotel is practical, affordable, safe, and provides all the basic needs for a business traveler or someone just passing through. A very dog friendly hotel in a nice area, I would definitely stay here again.
