I have stayed at many of the Riverwalk hotels over the years so I can say this hotel ranks about in the middle. I understand why it gets rave reviews because the freebies (breakfast and happy hour) are great for the budget minded. The food is standard budget hotel fare as well, nothing special about breakfast or happy hour meals. I did have breakfast each morning and it was very adequate...I thought the scrambled eggs were very good. There is no variety from day to day so it did get old quite quickly. Maybe they change from time to time but never saw any bacon or ham or different fruits, etc during my 4 day stay.
Happy hour was a nice get together but again, only one choice of beer and low end liquors and wine...just the facts here, I understand it is complimentary and wasn't expecting anything else.
The main draw of this hotel is the fact you can save some cash if you take advantage of the complimentary food. This is great for families and people on a tight budget for sure.
The room was quite big and I thought housekeeping did a great job each day. The flat screen TV had a bucket load of popular TV channels. My room had a ceiling fan as well and the bathroom was huge.
The Drury is what it proclaims to be, one of the best mid-level hotels with minimal service. It is not a luxury hotel and there are few services beyond the necessary. Its best feature is the well trained staff, the location, and the beautiful decor which remains from the old Alamo National Bank.
