“The Drury is not Dreary”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Our room overlooked the famous River Walk, and was simply delightful. We sat on the balcony in the evenings with a glass of wine, watching the people walking the river, and the riverboats passing by. At night it's all lit up with tree lights, along with the lights from the many businesses and restaurants. We were within walking distance of the Market Square and the Alamo. The room was clean and well cared for. The only downside was that the carpets in the halls were not well vacuumed. Some debris was there for the three days we stayed. Oh, and the breakfast and evening snacks were well intentioned, but definitely institution food. Great to get the two free drinks per night though.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony overlooking the River Walk are great. Do NOT get a room on the 7th floor adjace...

Decided to do a quick trip to San Antonio to see the Christmas lights on the Riverwalk. Wanted to stay downtown. Have been happy with other stays at Drury Inns, therefore chose this one. We were able to check in early. This allowed us time in the roof top pool and hot tub with no other guests. What a relaxing way to spend the afternoon. The food in the evening was as to be expected. Adequate but not spectacular. The breakfast food is much better and with more variety. The location of the hotel is excellent for spending time on the Riverwalk. Only negative is the parking garage. If you have a large car or high profile vehicle, doubt you will be able to get in. Overall, the room was nice, hotel quiet and clean. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay here again.

This has a great location with access to riverwalk . The price was reasonable, good happy hour three free drinks with marginal food. The older side has the best elevator service, new section has indoor pool with nice roof deck and view.

Traveling with family, 4 -adults and 3 - kids. We had two suits and had plenty of room. The breakfast and 5:30 snacks are great. We did not even eat dinner one night. The location is great. Take the elevator right to the Riverwalk. The kids loved swimming in the rooftop pool.

We had one room with a balcony on the Riverwalk and another had a balcony on the street. Ask for the Riverwalk if possible. The breakfast staff is wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. We have stayed at Drury properties in the past, and this property is nicer then most. I would return with the family.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony on the the RIverwalk.

my sister and I enjoyed 5 days in san antonio. we stayed at the DRURY INN AND SUITES on the riverwalk. christmas lights were beginning to shine and we wished we could have stayed for the holiday decorations. this hotel is friendly with alot of perks. the down side is rundown rooms.....I guess its a trade off for breakfast and dinner and drinks. its a great family spot but wouldn't suggest it for a romantic get-away. it worked for us and we had a great time. the location is perfect.

This is a great hotel where the extras are not extra. They provide pub style food and drinks free at 5:30 till 7pm (I enjoyed the baked potatoes). free pop and popcorn all afternoon. Great breakfast items (could use more fruit though). Some free long distance and acceptible business center for those of us with no laptop or printer (needed to print boarding passes).
The manager was there at the Kick back time and was very accomodating with gluten free requests. The location right on the riverwalk in an historic building. The restaurant on the riverwalk level served good steaks. The Drury Inn Plaza was really close too. The Hotel itself could use new flooring. On the guest room levels the carpet looked dirty which could be overlooked by the overall satisfaction of the Hotel and Staff.

Room Tip: We had a riverwalk view terrace room on the 5th floor. It is a busy street on the front side.

Stayed here for 4 nights for a class in one of the meeting rooms on the Riverwalk level.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and have been updated nicely.
The location on the Riverwalk is good, but the surface streets are like any other city.
For all the talk of a "green" hotel, I didn't see a single LED or CF light bulb.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side look into the alley where the garbage trucks make lots of noise.
