Drury Plaza Hotel San Antonio Riverwalk

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 11, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for our 30th wedding anniversary in a King-size suite in the San Fernando Tower side of the Hotel. The service was exceptional by everyone we encountered and the location is fantastic (right on the river walk). We valeted our car when we checked in and didn't drive again until we were heading home. Everything we did was within walking distance. The room was spacious and clean. King size bed 2 tv's one in the living room area and one in the bedroom. Some reviews were saying the building was old and needed upgrades, the building is actually a renovated bank building and that is what gives it it's charm. The complimentary breakfast and 5:30 kickbacks were very tasty. The breakfast was the usual breakfast type fare. The 5:30 kickback included hot dogs, nachos, baked potatoes, etc. along with 3 adult beverages. Just enough to get you started on a fun night along the river!! We will definitely be staying here again.
There was some confusion when we tried to check in, seems there are 2 Drury's very close together. No worries it was easy to rectify and the staff at the other Drury had printed directions they handed out since "it happens all the time."

We stayed there for 8 nights and everything was great. We had oversized room and the room was well-appointed and very clean. Breakfast was excellent and the kickback was great. The location was excellent, just a short distance walk to the Riverwalk and other attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We, a Famil of four, stayed here a week and everything was great. The only problem we did have was resolved almost instantaneously. Our toilet began to over flow, not only did they give us a new room, but moved our stuff for us while we were at breakfast.

Stayed for 5 days in late August with husband and 2 teenage sons. Double-queen bed room was fairly large; small kitchen area with fridge and microwave was convenient. The room was well-appointed and very clean, and the only thing I could criticize is that the carpet was worn. Location was excellent, just a short walk to the Riverwalk and other attractions. Every single hotel employee we encountered was friendly. Breakfast included pancakes, biscuits & gravy, oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt, and real scrambled eggs. Also it was great to get snacks (that served as a meal on more than one occasion!) and drinks every night--it saved us a fortune, considering that my teenage sons do nothing but eat lately. The rooftop pool/hottub area was clean and enjoyable. This isn't a full-service hotel, but it perfectly met our needs for a very reasonable price. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and wholeheartedly agree with other reviewers who say this is a great place for families.

My husband and I were there on August 24-29, 2012 for our 30th wedding anniversary! When we arrived around 11:30 AM, we were only expecting to check our luggage in, but they let us check in then. Not only did they let us check in early, we were upgraded to a suite! It was beautiful! The bed was so comfortable and the suite was so clean. The staff was very friendly all the time and very accommodating. The kickback every evening was very nice, and the breakfast every morning was just what we needed. The pool and jacuzzi on the roof top was amazing, especially after walking all day long. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!! I am from Charleston SC and we have been voted friendliest city for many years, but I have to say Charleston has a close second with San Antonio! I would go back and stay on this property again!!!

I'm not quite sure why I've read some bad review for this place. The hotel, lobby, rooms, etc were all clean and beautiful. Me, hubby, 16 y/o son and 13 y/o daughter stayed here over Labor Day weekend in one of their oversized one bedroom suites. It was gorgeous and really roomy! The staff was friendly, too. Awesome location on Riverwalk...we walked everywhere around downtown with no problems. This is an excellent value for families because of their good, free, hot breakfast and their 5:30pm "kickback" with the free food and alcoholic drinks. (You get 3 free drinks per adult per day)... but all day long free soda! :) My only two warnings are this - It was pretty much a cattle call for the free food and drinks, so don't expect a quiet, romantic, kid-free setting. And, we stayed on the 6th floor and there was a lot of "downtown" noise that seeped into the room. We could hear the traffic, sirens, even the annoying beeping from the crosswalk lights. I suspect it wouldn't be as bad on the higher floors. All in all though, we were very pleased and thought it was a super value for the Riverwalk area. :)

Room Tip: Choose higher floors. The oversized, one-bedroom suites are great if you have 2 adults and 2 childr...
