We booked the King Suite water view side room after reading positive reviews on this website. The overall experience was good. The hotel is in a nice quiet part of the Riverwalk- a big plus. It is easy to get to everything but you are not fighting to use the narrow streets with the zillions of other tourists like you have down at the end of the Riverwalk where the Hilton and Hyatt are. That part of the walk is a zoo.
The hotel lobby was still under construction even though the desk clerk had told us that it was done. The four days we stayed there, it was all covered up but we never saw anyone working on it. That part was a mystery to me. This did not pose any real inconvenience as there was no noise, but the lobby didn't look pretty all covered up.
The room was large with high ceilings, kind of Victorian. There was a refrigerator and a nice clean bathroom. The rooftop pool deck was gorgeous and especially pretty at night.
The complimentary breakfast and coctails were served in the basement- in one of the meeting rooms. That set up was okay, but lacked the ambiance of the hotel lobby where they normally have the buffet set up. The staff was courteous, there is no door man or concierge, but the desk clerks will point you in the direction of local attractions.
The reason for staying here is the overall value- much cheaper than other hotels and yet it is a pretty building. The restaurant workers were exceptionally pleasant and hardworking.
When you visit the Riverwalk be sure to eat at Nicolino's- great little Italian place on the busy end of the Riverwalk. Avoid the Longhorn which adjoins it- the food, ambiance and service were terrible there.
The Drury was a very pleasant experience, we would stay there again- absolutely!
