Stayed at the Drury Plaza when in San Antonio Labor Day weekend to attend my son's graduation from Lackland. This was an outstanding place to stay. It is situated on the riverwalk half way between the Alamo and the Mexican market so you can walk everywhere. Our room was clean, spacious. Bed was comfortable with 5 pillows!!!! There was a small frig and microwave provided. The customer service was attentive, accommodating and top notch. Can't tell you how many times a member of the staff asked us how our stay was going, if there was any concerns or if they could help us in any way. Every member of the staff came across as genuinely caring and all had a smile for us. It was wonderful to have the morning breakfast and nightly kick back provided with the room. The variety at breakfast was as good as any buffet. The evening had baked potatoes, a pasta dish, hot dogs, soup, salad, chips and cheese and 3 drinks provided. It did get a little crazy on the weekend but the staff once again did a fantastic job and got everyone through it in a timely manner.
The pool and rooftop terrace were very nice. View at night was amazing. Admittedly more enjoyable on Thursday and Friday which were quieter. On Saturday we were going to go to riverwalk for a night cap--it was so crazy you could hardly walk. There was a two hour wait to go anywhere--we ended up back at the Drury on the rooftop terrace enjoying the night lights, eating popcorn and having a soda which are provided free in the lobby. I only wish it was open later than 10:00.
The hotel does require Valet parking which is an additional $21 on your bill. It is run very smoothly and efficiently like every other service provided at the Drury.
I would not hesitate to stay or recommend the Drury Plaza. The Drury deserves to be in the top 10 if not number one in our opinion.
