My husband and I stayed at this hotel while I was in town for a conference. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the convention center on the street level. If you go through the basement of the hotel you are right on the riverwalk, which will also take you to the convention center by a much more scenic (and less hot!) route. The hotel is also very close to the Alamo.
We really enjoyed staying at the Drury Plaza. It is not a 5 star hotel, but the accommodations were comfortable. We had a room with two queen beds, would have preferred one king, but because I was booking under a group block, I had no control over which room we got. The hotel had two pools, including one on the rooftop, as well as several hot tubs. If you stay here, check out the view from the rooftop, especially at night.
Regarding the free extras, we were served a free hot breakfast every morning, which included pancakes, scrambled eggs, biscuits with gravy, sausage as well as more continental fare. Each night there was a free happy hour from 5:30 - 7:00 where complimentary drinks and food were served. Each guest is allowed up to 3 free alcoholic beverages per night as well as unlimited nonalcoholic beverages. The food would vary each night and included chili dogs, egg rolls, chicken wings, nachos and baked potatoes. Overall the food was very good and often served as a snack for my husband and I before we went out for dinner later. Some may argue that these free extras are really included in the price of the room, but we found the price to be very reasonable and were delighted to find out about these extra amenities.
Overall, I would highly recommend staying at this hotel, whether as a business traveler or a family on vacation.
