This was our first experience with a Drury hotel and we will certainly be back!! This hotel is very conveniently located - a short walk to the downtown, the ballpark and arena- and a slightly longer walk to Ohio State University (about two miles away). It is truly a great find at a very affordable price!

The front staff members were incredibly friendly and very helpful in recommending great local restaurants and providing directions, and the breakfast spread is very expansive with a large seating area for guests. They hotel also provides a happy hour (three free drinks (beer/wine) for guests each day, and a dinner buffet that would more than suffice for families wanting to cut a few costs and eat "in" for an evening or two.

Our room was lovely and clean, and the beds very comfortable. The only down side is that the bathroom is separated - toilet and tub are in a room with a door, while the sink (and light for the sink) are not, so if you have night bathroom-ers, it is noisier than a room that has the full bathroom behind one door. It was mildly inconvenient but it was totally manageable and will not in any way affect our plan to return to this Drury Inn when we return to Columbus for a Clippers game in the future!

All in all, an excellent stay at a great price!!

Located downtown Columbus, the Drury Inn is a beautiful place to stay. My family came to Columbus for a Clippers game and couldn't have found a better location. The staff was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the pool, the manager's reception, and breakfast.Overall, an excellent stay for an economical price. Kudos to The Drury Inn!!

I just stayed at the Drury Inn during a Gallery Hop weekend. The location is easy walking distance to the Short North area or to Nationwide Arena. This location is very accessible from several major interstates, especially RTE 71 and RTE 315. A decent happy hour is also available in the evening that allows three drinks per adult guest. The continental breakfast is a nice way to get kids full before starting your day.

We have stayed at Drury Inn and Suites before and so have come to expect to have a great time. We love the complimentary breakfast and happy hour food and drink. It's great to have a low stress way to get the kids some food before heading out for the evening. It's also great mom and dad can have a beer if we want. The pool was small at this location, but still worked just fine for our small kids. It is indoor/outdoor, so can be a little cool if it is not very warm out. Parking is really good here for a city hotel, as you get to park in a garage and take the elevator directly to your room floor. There was some construction going on while we were there, but it just made the elevators slow, no other big inconvenience.

We stayed here a night while in town to attend a ballgame. I had never been to a Drurry Hotel and boy was I wowed! Check in was great and the have a nice secure parking garage where the elevator goes straight to your floor. The garage elevator everything is controlled by a key card which gave me a more safe feeling while in the garage area. After settling in we were delighted to have free pop and popcorn, while the boys swam in the pool. They had so much fun that they actually wanted to miss the game and stay at the hotel (which we didn't). Before the game we had the free hot bar which included hotdogs, nachos, Mac and cheese, baked potatoe, chile sauce and fixings to make a taco salad. Also for us adults we even got a few beers with our stay. This saved us a fortune of buying food at the game. The next morning we were again delighted with breakfast. Everything from biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, breakfast potatoes, cereals, doughnuts, waffles, juices and much more. We will for sure watch for Drurry Hotels now and are all ready making plans to go back to Columbus and stay again to check out more of the city!

Drury Inn and Suites is situated in downtown Columbus and is connected to the Convention Center. A big plus, Drury Inn has a private parking garage. The parking garage elevator stops directly on your hotel floor. Free soft drinks, popcorn and coffee are available in the lobby from 5 pm to 10 pm every day. Indoor/ outdoor pool looked nice and well maintained as did the jacuzzi. (We were unable to use them due to time).Front desk employees were helpful and knowledgeable. Taxis were available within minutes to many of the popular restaurants and destinations at the Short North, taxi service had reasonable rates and I highly recommend using taxis to get around the city. We walked to the food court at the convention center and browsed some of the shops there too. The room was clean, well appointed, newly remodeled and had large bathrooms. The elevator shaft was near our room and was quite loud late at night. The walls were thin and you could hear walking, showering, talking in room next to you and above you. All and all we were satisfied with our stay at Drury Inn and Suites. I felt the price was comparable to other hotels downtown but still pricey.

Room Tip: Drury Inn has there own parking garage which was nice in an area where there is a shortage of parkin...
