Recently we treated ourselves to an escape to st. Louis crowned with a hockey game between the St. Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks. (Hawks lost, boohoo)
The hotel is in an extremely convenient location to the Scottrade Center, home of the Blues, the very convenient Metra, walking distance to heart of downtown (I would recommend only do that in daytime), and bus service. We did not use our car the whole time we were there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations. The Drury Inn chain has consistent quality wherever we have stayed. The room was very clean; the bedding comfortable; the amenities ( free wi-fi, free breakfast, free evening "snack"..more like a filling meal, free evening alcoholic beverages, free, covered parking) were all very good. The rooms are a little small but quite adequate with a microwave and mini fridge.
Service was very good to excellent. Our room did not have any extra blankets; the desk clerk immediately gave us one. I also was very impressed with the management's "anti-partying' policy. No loud parties allowed (even for Blues fans) offenders are immediately dealt with!
I gave the hotel "average" based on cleanliness. The coffee area was not thoroughly maintained; our bed was not made on one occasion; the main entrance needs some sprucing up (the hotel is the location of the former Railroad YMCA)
We will definitely return to this hotel next time we want to "escape' from west central Illinois.
