My family had a fantastic stay at the Drury Inn and Suites in Orlando, Florida. Let me sum it up for you:
Check in was a breeze, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. I had reserved the room online, which was quick and easy. The price was a good value compared to competing properties in the area. I was arriving with a pet, which was free, and during my stay the staff was accomodating and friendly with the dog, even remembering her name.
The hotel property is brand new and everything was clean and new. There were always staff cleaning, sweeping, or wiping down. There is free ample parking, the location is good and there are lots of dining/shopping/entertainment areas in close proximity. Whole foods/ 7-11 and Wendy's are all in walking distance. The location is right off the interstate, but our room was very quiet in spite of being near the road. Our room was very large and the beds/pillows were attractive and comfortable. Everything still smells new!
There was a 5:30 evening reception with an offering of 3 free alcoholic drinks at the bar for adults, which had a wide selection of drinks available and a nice light meal offering which included hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, baked potatoes, chili, nachos and cheese, green tossed salad, salsa and vegetables crudite with ranch dressing. It was a self-service buffet style. There is also always a drink station available which included coffee/decaf/tea/decaf tea/hot cocoa/juice/and a soft drink station.
The amenities included a computer room, free wireless internet in the rooms, hot tub, indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub, banquet/meeting rooms. There are pool towels provided in the pool area as well as outdoor tables/lounge chairs on the patio area. The pool is open until 10PM.
Breakfast is included with the room and the offering was suitable for most diets and included for example: eggs/sausage/ham/cheese/hash brown potatoes/cooked oatmeal/hot biscuits with gravy/assorted breads for toast/donuts/assorted cereals/bananas/apples/yogurt/fresh made waffles with syrup.There was a complete beverage station, including juices/coffee/milk etc.
Check out was not needed as there is a room key drop box near the exit door.
All in all this hotel was excellent. The only little thing I can say was not favorable was in my opinion the shower/bath products system was filled with inferior products such as shampoo/shower gel/conditioner. The products left me with a filmy feeling and actually made my hair feel worse/more tangled than with any other conditioner I have ever used. Next time I will just bring my own, this is a very minor inconvenience for me. I would definitely tell all my friends/family to STAY AT THE DRURY INN AND SUITES!
