“was there for business”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I liked it very much, because you get free happy hour and free dinner included every night. it cozy and nice for an older hotel. You go down the elevator and you walk right into the river walk!!!!! I loved it. I stayed there a whole month.

my husband and i spent 2 days at the drury and it was wonderful,room was spotless.we stayed on 8th floor which was great.i highly reccomend this place for families,the breakfast was awesome tons of choices.but i think what families will appreciate is the evening snacks.wow you can eat dinner here .free from great baked potatoes to salad.nachos and hotdogs.and every one is so helpful..the only negitive was the pools the rooftop pool was aweful green dingy lots of people were in it but i was not going to risk it.indoor pool next door was worse, when i stepped inside room the chlorine was so strong i almost got sick..you really could not breathe.and that was one of the reasons we picked the hotel was for pool ..but you are right on river and we never used our car we walked to alamo and all over.but i would come back ..

Room Tip: a/c never shuts off but it woked for me i like the white noise.

I've stayed here many times and love the location at the end of the Riverwalk. It's easy to get turned around on the Riverwalk but with this location it was easy to find. It's quiet being at the end. Also love the breakfast and snacks that are offered each afternoon. Such a great value for the money. The rooms are clean and spacious and service has always been great. I now stay at the Drury EVERY time I go to the Riverwalk!!!

Dare I say, this hotel has provided the level of service I have only come across one other time in my life...Disney. It was our anniversary, so they upgraded our room, free of charge. The best part is I was able to reserve the room for 30% off (via online coupon code) to begin with. So not only did I save 30%, but I got a suite to boot. You can't beat that. Oh wait, you can. The accomodations include a FREE hot breakfast. Everyone knows what to expect with a FREE hot breakfast, so if you are looking for 4 star FREE food, I believe you are a little unrealistic to begin with. The breakfast was good. Eggs, sausage, biscuits, pancakes, toast, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels, donuts, muffins, gravy...you get the idea. Then on top of that, at 5:30-7 they have a free happy hour (3 drinks limit, but hey, it's free). The Tom Collins and Tequlia Sunrises were great. In addition to that, they serve a free "snack." In my opinion, this was no snack. Again, remember it is free, but it included hot dogs, chicken tenders, salad, soup, nachos, mac-n-cheese, baked potatoes, celery and carrot sticks. If you have kids...you just got free dinner for them which means more drinks on the riverwalk for mom and dad. No kids, well, you just got free dinner for you, 3 free drinks and an early start to a good time.

Now onto location. It is right on the riverwalk. Some people may want to be right smack dab in the middle of the bars, but honestly, at some point you have to go to sleep, so it is just far enough down from the main strip to be quiet, but close enough to be perfect.

The staff was excellent. From the manager to the maid service, everyone was friendly, polite and eager to greet you and give good tourism advice.

We will defintely be back.

Room Tip: Suites include 2 TV's, full fridge, microwave. Great value!

Not luxury but pleasantly surprised at how reasonable and good it was. Interesting hotel as it was a bank and the lobby is expansive (not a small hotel as I had thought). Rooms are on the smaller side but clean and updated with flat screen tv and updated bathrooms. Indoor pool and rooftop pool with 2 hot tubs. OUtdoor pools open late which is nice. Hotel staff very helpful and nice. Breakfast is fine...not great but enough to choose from. Considering the price with breakfast you can't beat it. Drinks and food free from 5-7. Value is unbelievable and they really try hard to please. Decent location at beginning of river walk. would I recommend it? absolutely.

We took seven family members to San Antonio and the Drury was a real value. The location is right on the River Walk. They offer reasonably priced/decorated rooms, a free buffet breakfast, sodas and popcorn during the day and evening cocktails and food. The lobby is beautiful, the staff very polite and helpful and the rooftop pool has beautiful views of San Antonio. Note that this is a very family filled hotel so if you want romance, elegance and quiet, look elsewhere. However, if you are traveling with kids/family this is a great and affordable option.

DruryHotels, General Manager at Drury Plaza Hotel San Antonio Riverwalk, responded to this review, July 23, 2012
Thank you for letting us know about our elevators and your valet experience. We have had our elevator service company inspect our elevators to ensure that they are operating at full capacity. Also, we know how busy our valet attendants can be when moving our vehicles in and out of our on-site parking garage. We will double-check to make sure that we have the right number of attendants on duty for those busy periods. We strive to provide clean rooms and excellent service at a good value for our guests. These busy summer days are a fun time for us and our guests and we will continue to work hard to ensure everyone enjoys their stay.

Once again, thank you and we hope to see you soon.
