“Beyond Belief!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

I had originally planned to stay at another Drury Hotel in San Antonio until I read the reivews for the Plaza North on tripadvisor. I found it hard to believe that a hotel could be as great as everyone said. Look guys, it's all true! This place is awesome! When you walk in the door, it's classy and clean. Every employee you meet anywhere in the hotel during your stay says hello and are very friendly. They have a great breakfast buffet every single day. And, the kickback in the afternoon is equally as good. Is it fine dining? No, it is not, but it is good quality food that will keep you from going to the restaurant every day, and they give each adult three adult drinks each day. We took our family of three young kids 13 and under and stayed a full week at this hotel ( we liked it so much, we stayed an extra night!). We only ate a light lunch each day and made it to the hotel for breakfast and dinner. And, yes, it's true that the manager Mike Bazar is wandering around each morning at breakfast cleaning tables and greeting everyone that he possibly can. He was gone to a meeting one day, and the assistant manager took up the slack for him! We were there one morning and they were out of eggs when we got there for breakfast. When they got some ready, he brought a whole plate over to our table....he was paying close attention and making sure everyone was happy! And, I saw him multiple times walking the hallways of the rooms and picking up after the mindless idiots that leave thier messes laying around. They also have a bar that is open after the kickback and you can purchase a six pack, get a beer on tap, or a good mixed drink. Jorge was a great bartender and had a really great personality. And I didn't mention that they have popcorn and the soda fountain open from 3pm to 10pm every day! The place was kept immaculate and it always smelled and looked clean during our entire stay. They have three elevators that are lightning fast and gated, indoor parking that made us feel totally secure. Check-in was fast and the desk help were always nice and helpful. If you need towels, pillows, blankets, or anything else....just call the desk and they will quickly bring it right up to your door! We especially liked the soap dispenser in the shower instead of the small bottles of shampoo and the small soap bar that you normally get. The only real drawback is that the pool is outdoors. Now, it is up on the 5th floor and has a nice view of the city, two hot tubs, pool, and spacious lounge area. It was always kept as nice and clean as the hotel, and of course, there were plenty of roudy kids out there just like all other places, and plenty of mindless parents letting them run amuck! Our room was a double room with two queens in one and a sliding door seperating another room with foldout couch, chair etc. Two TV's which was very conveinent, a small bar area with micro,fridge, and an extra sink and mirror which was conveinent when everyone was trying to get dressed and ready. The beds were very comfortable and good and plentiful pillows on the beds. The A/C system is central and quiet, not like most places with the old unit in the window churning all night while one person freezes by the window! The hotel is on the north end of the loop, but it's only 15-20 mins from downtown, 10 mins from Six Flags, and 20 mins from Sea World. We got a discounted six flags rate, so, it was about $50 a night cheaper than staying right next to all the attractions. It's also not that far from San Marcos and New Braunfels if you were planning to try to to do a bit of everything. There is plenty of shopping, theaters, restaurants, Wal-Mart, HEB, mini golf, ice skating....all within 5 mins of the hotel. We will never stay at another hotel in San Antonio. This is home away from home for us! If I had to rate it 1-5.....I'd give them a perfect 10. You other hotel managers beware.....Mike Bazar is setting the standard at this property!

Room Tip: The laundry, workout room, and pool is on the 5th floor. It was suprisingly quiet on that floor and...

We just got back from a 4 night stay at the Drury Plaza and it was a great experience. The hotel staff were extremely helpful when we arrived. We had a small mixup with the room (which was my fault) and they fixed it very quickly. We asked for a high floor with a good view and we received one. The best part about the hotel is the morning breakfast and the afternoon kickback. Breakfast included eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage, potatoes, pancakes, waffles, fresh fruit, etc. We loved it. The kickback included 3 free adult beverages (beer, wine or liquor), nachos, hot dogs, chicken strips, and fresh vegetables. We just made this our dinner two nights because we didn't feel like going back out after a long day. The rooms were very clean and very new. The hotel overall was very tidy and was in a great location if you plan on visiting Fiesta Texas, Sea World, The Alamo, Fredericksburg or Schlitterbahn. Even the hotel manager, Michael, was nice as we talked with him a couple of times during breakfast as he was walking around. Stay here if you want an awesome hotel, in an awesome location at an awesome price!

This was one of the best places my family has stayed in a long time. Cant say enough about the Drury Plaza. Excellent !!! We have stayed in the area before but not here and for the money it was a true value. Staff, grounds, room, amenities, everything was great. We plan on staying there again on our nice trip to San Antonio. Easy to get to, covered secured parking. Easy access to surrounding restaurants and shopping. We love to travel into the Hill country and because of the hotel's location to Interstate I10 and US Highway 281 it was a breeze getting to our favorite spots.

We only stayed one night on a flying visit to San Antonio from Dallas

A great introductiuon to S Texas and Texan hospitality.

Excellent rooms, very helpful staff and the complimentary "Extras" (drinks, hot and cold nibbles and breakfast were really great value extras to the stay.

An easy trip for even us Brits to drive into the tourist part of downtown

On our list to revisit

Room Tip: Follow the SatNav not what you think looks like the route

My wife and 3 teenage girls stay here one night for all there is to do in San Antonio. The Riverwalk was 15 minutes away and Seaworld is 20 minutes away so not to bad staying on Northside.

I travel all over the world and stay in the Westin, Renaissance and JW Marriott mostly. This Drury Plaza Hotel was as nice as the high class places and so FAMILY and dog friendly I could not believe it. The staff was so nice, friendly, efficient and energetic. It reminded me of the Southwest Airlines attitude of the hotel business. The hotel was really clean, the free breakfast was way more than expected and fresh. The girls loved the free popcorn and soda on the lobby. My only regret is we did not stay another night. TWO THUMBS UP, WAY UP! We will be starting here everytime we are in San Antonio.

ONE BIG TIP: You may be able to get a cheaper room rate by calling the hotel. I found a rate online for $109/nt, and my wife called hotel directly and got a $89/nt for the the same night in same room type.

Very nice hotel, excellent service, close to everything. We went to The Alamo, El Mercardo, Riverwalk, The Zoo, Sea World and San Marcos, it was super easy to get to all of these places from this hotel. Excellent value for the price! The only thing that would have made it better would have been a restaurant on the premises!
