I and grandkids went to see the St. Louis sights and were we surprised to be in the heart of it all! It's St. Louis' 250th birthday and there are "birthday cakes" all around the downtown area that are decorated differently with one right outside this Drury. I requested a room with a view of Arch and we GOT IT! We got a room in the South building facing east. Clean, quiet and well appointed room with microwave, mini-refrigerator, comfy upholstered chair situated at window overlooking nothing less than the Gateway to the West. A hot breakfast was included and it was good. Pancakes, oven potatoes, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuits & gravy (runs out fast), cold cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit and my kids favorite; Lucky Charms. Milk, OJ, good coffee. At 5:30pm (not 5pm as advertised) 3 cocktails per adult (also included) Goose Island beer, wine and mixed drinks. Hot hors d'oeuvres (really dinner) like macaroni/cheese, baked potatoes, mostaccioli. We did not eat dinner there but it looked okay. I was turned off by the ravenous crowd that lined up and noise from kids and babies crying. Free popcorn and soda for kids from 3pm - 10 pm. Pool and 2 hot tubs were nice. Area was clean and plenty of pool towels. Chemicals in air burned my eyes while in room but kids had a good time. Front desk was very courteous and helpful. I would go back and skip the hors d'oeuvres line.
