We found this place to be just a delightful place to stay. There is definitely something special about the atmosphere, and I think a lot of it has to do with the staff, who were ALL extremely friendly and helpful from the manager Lisa, to the front desk (called within a few minutes upon entering our room to make sure everything was OK), to the smiling chef/dining area attendant Raymond (who also greets you on the TV on Drury's home station), to the cleaning/maintenance staff.
This is a historic older building with a huge open lobby, that has been beautifully renovated, beautiful wood, chandeliers, tile floor, etc. All very classy. Parking is accessible from the second floor.
We enjoyed both the hot breakfasts and the evening kickback (all complimentary) and noticed at both that the atmosphere was more like a social event/party than the usual eat-and-get-outta-there feel, guests were really appreciating the love! There was plenty of variety at breakfast, including waffles, cold & hot cereals, potatoes, eggs, sausage, fresh fruit, yogurts, biscuits & gravy, muffins, you name it, along with juices & coffee. Evenings meant drinks (limit of 3, if alcohol) and enough choices to make a meal if you so desired: baked potatoes, chips & salsa, veggies & dip, salad, hot dogs, chicken tenders, soups - it was really quite amazing.
Our room was lovely too, with all-white bedding, a balcony, with chairs and table, overlooking Riverwalk, a lounge chair, large night stands and armoire, and sink area apart from the shower/toilet area. In the room were also a microwave and small refrigerator and large flat screen TV. We stayed on the 7th floor, which is where the fitness center (also complimentary) and pool/hot tub area is located.
We hope we have an opportunity to visit here again, and highly recommend this hotel!
