We stayed here for two weekend nights, one of which was comped by using Drury points. We got the American Girl package as we had our 5 year old granddaughter with us. She was delighted to receive an AG travel bed for her doll, and some cookies. She thinks that the hotel staff knew she was there to go to AG and just wanted to give her this nice gift.
We had a suite with two double beds in the bedroom and another room with a fold out couch. Both rooms had a flat screen tv, and the living area also had a small fridge and microwave. The rooms were spotless, as was the bathroom. No complaints about the room at all, although I wasn't a fan of the heavy drapery on the windows.
The hotel was very well maintained. The pool is partly indoors and partly outdoors, which intrigued my granddaughters. All of the staff that we encountered were very friendly.
My only disappointment was the 5:30 kickback. We stay at Drury hotels frequently, and this is one of the perks that we really enjoy, especially when traveling with grandkids who would prefer to eat quickly at the hotel so they can get back to the pool! On Friday night, we had hot dogs, baked potatoes and excellent meatballs, plus salad. Nice for a quick meal. The next night, once again...hot dogs, baked potatoes, and this time macaroni, and chili for the hotdogs. If I remember correctly, the other Drurys we have stayed at have changed their menu from night to night so that we wouldn't have hot dogs two nights in a row. Not really a complaint as it is still filling (and free!), but a bit of variety would be nice. I know that we have had chicken nuggets at other Drurys...a kid favorite.
The biggest plus for us was that this Drury is within walking distance of the mall where the American Girl store is located. My husband and older granddaughter went on a Segway tour on Saturday morning and had to leave the hotel fairly early. So it was nice that the young granddaughter and I could easily walk to American Girl from the hotel. It was less than a 10 minute walk...probably five minutes if you don't have a 5 year old with you.
We were very pleased with this hotel and look forward to staying there on our next American Girl visit.
