“Arch Madness goodtimes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stayed again at the Drury at the Arch for the MVC basketball tournament. It is a 10 block walk to Scott Trade Center but very doable if the temperature is right. On rainy days we took the downtown trolley to the arena for $2 per person. The rooms are clean and the service is friendly and very accomodating. The price includes a hot breakfast and hot evening buffet that included chicken strips, hot dogs, meatballs and baked potatoes on various evenings. We paid $135-$145 per night for a one bedroom during our tournament 3 night stay. There is an additional charge of $16 per night for the parking garage which is easily accessible through the inside elevator access. The staff allowed us to keep our car garaged on the last day hours after normal check-out time so that we wouldn't have to move the car until after the championship game. Our only complaint was that we were given an interior room with no outside windows and we could frequently hear the elevator ding at all hours. A few years ago we were given a room that looked out over the Arch. However, we had requested a room on the same floor as our travelling companions and that was arranged so we didn't complain about not having a window. We had a great time and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the Arch.

I went there with a group from my church for the Urbana conference that takes place every 3 yrs. The staff was excellent at handling the big crowds from the conference and the fact that they served breakfast and lunch was a big plus for me and my crew. The walk to the stadium was not that far away and worth it for the food. The rooms were very nice and the facilities were always excellent. This hotel definitely super-ceded my expectations and made my stay in St. Louis memorable. Not to menition the fact that the MS River and the Arch were out my back window!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the back side for better views of the Arch and river.

Very dated. In desperate need of an upgrade especially for the amount of money per night. Everything seemed clean. The overwhelming stinch of stale smoke is what did it for me. Did not get any sleep due to the horrendous smell and bed pillows were very uncomfortable. Still in shock at how dated it was. There were popcorn trails all throughout the halls and elevators. *Can you please fix the STINCH!!!!!!*

Last time in St. Louis I stayed at the Hampton. Decided to try something different this time. The Drury was an excellent choice. Great location right at the arch. One block from the park where you can get an awesome picture of the courthouse in front of the arch. Both meals were great. Evening meal had chicken tenders, hot dogs, mac n cheese, nachos, and more.

My Husband and I chose this hotel because of it being a Drury Inn and it was in a great location. The arch, the old courthouse, the old cathedral, and the baseball stadium all within a block of the hotel. The Anheuser Busch Brewery, the Basilica, and the Science Museum were a short drive. We were not disappointed!

Parking in the building is limited and does cost extra but once you check in and if you get a parking pass that pass is good for the length of your stay. So you don't have to worry about taking out your car and not getting a spot when you return.

It is a very nice looking, well kept hotel. The first floor reception area is very inviting with many chairs, couches, gas fireplace, all day coffee, soda, and popcorn. They even have a decent Italian restaurant in the same building.

Even though we did not partake in their happy hour, that is at no extra cost, it is a great offering, and if we had kids it would even be better. They offered 3 alcoholic drinks per adult, the food bar had hot dogs, mac & cheese, baked potatoes, chicken nuggets, chips and salsa, and chili.

Their breakfast offered pancakes, sausage patties, eggs, potatoes, toast, cereal, donuts, fruit, juice, coffee, etc.

The rooms are decent size, we had a king bed and had plenty of room to spread out. Our room had a microwave and refrigerator and flat screen tv. The decor was nice, dark cherry wood, clean, good condition. The baths were also updated and clean. We were very comfortable.

The pool area was also nice and clean. The pool was not large and the deepest point was about 5ft but it was a nice perk along with two hot tubs in the pool area.

We came to explore St. Louis and that we did, even though a snow storm came through and the whole city shut down one of the days we enjoyed reading by the fire, had a nice swim, and enjoyed a pizza at the italian restaurant.

Classy, sophisticated, great location, parking ramp, nice/helpful employees, impressive room. I loved everything about my stay (even the room price made me happy), with the exception of one big thing. The coffee maker, and the coffee packets are on the bathroom sink...where people brush their teeth. I started to make coffee in the morning when I noticed the coffee packets, sweetener, and the caddy they were held in were covered in someone's toothpaste splatter. Keep in mind that I haven't brushed my teeth there yet. I am getting nauseous just recalling it. The impressive bathroom has granite and marble from floor to ceiling, but it means nothing if it doesn't appear to be cleaned properly. Ick.

Cannot fault this hotel at all. Great staff, all very friendly and helpful, when booking inn my teenage son asked about the pool, so the very nice man on reception put us in a room right near the pool, which was great, we used the pool a few times and always enjoyed it. The room was very clean and a good size. Loved the free breakfast and evening meal and the boys loved the free popcorn and soda. Great location for st louis arch, only a short walk through a park. Would def stay here again if in st louis. Free parking is also a bonus,
