“Solid choice for STL that's ideally located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This was my 2nd stay at this location; we stayed for a week this time. We use to live in STL, so when we return, we like to have a good location. This one fits the bill as it's right next to 44 and close to Forest Park, downtown, and 270. Overall, I'd say it's my 2nd choice, though, as I really like the Drury in Valley Park.

WHY IT'S NOT A 5 STAR REVIEW: This Drury Inn is always busy/crowded and sometimes the lady at the front desk lacks expertise in customer service (even though she's been employed since 2010). The pool area is too small and a few times I think capacity was reached. Additionally, the pool towels are ridiculously small, though a perfect size for a 7 year old. Breakfast is always crowded, too, though they will open the convention area if it gets too bad. Only a couple mornings did I find some food items out of stock due to the volume of people eating. There will always be tons of people in the elevator or slamming doors in the wee hours of the night/morning. Obviously, it's a popular hotel; however, I found the 'crowds' to be annoying. Then, one morning the front desk lady seemed unable to multitask with multiple guests needing to check in or find a missing item etc. Worse though- she seemed unconcerned with the obvious distress/annoyance she was causing.

THE GOOD: The amenities of a Drury can't be beat, and that is why we always choose this brand when we travel to STL. I've stayed in 5 locations around the city and this one is my 2nd choice. The rooms are nice, the lobby is large, and breakfast/happy hour is plentiful. If you want to go to Forest Park or the Hill or Downtown, then this is a perfect choice. I also find the housekeeping crew to be very efficient, friendly, and hard working... more so than any other location I've been to.

We will be back.

A great spot for families outside the city, close to Forest Park and the Zoo. Clean rooms, exceptionally helpful staff, quality breakfast. We'd give it 5 stars, but the water in the pool seems to be lacking in freshness. The afternoon snack was decent enough for a kids dinner (chicken fingers, hot dogs, nachos) so we brought carry-out barbeque from Pappy's for me and my wife to enjoy while our girls ate at the Drury.

On a recent trip that took us to St. Louis, we stayed one night at the Drury Inn and Suites in Forest Park. This was our first stay at a a Drury, and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is not new, but it was built with quality materials and maintained very well. The bathroom and its fixtures especially were of very high quality. The rooms are large and pleasant, and very clean. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. We had a very pleasant stay.

Have stayed here 3 times and love it! Clean and friendly! We travel with our dog and their pet friendly rooms don't smell like so many other places. The food and free drinks are a great touch and always fresh. Keep up the good work.

I was very pleased with this hotel and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is very well managed. Clean, comfortable, and quiet rooms. The food and complimentary beverages that are offered during the 'kickback' period are the icing on the cake. My daughter inquired if they had desserts, and the manager had cookies baked for her. The staff went over and beyond to serve their guests. Polite and friendly staff made our stay a great one. The location is ideal, not far from attractions and downtown.

Very clean and well managed hotel. Very convenient to the Hill for great dining and to the Zoo (family's primary stop). All of the staff was extremely friendly and the manager's happy hour an added bonus. Lots to choose from for a hot breakfast. Kids enjoyed the pool.
