This Drury has the budget-conscious business and family traveler in mind. Check-in and out were immediate and service was friendly. The room was very clean although would benefit from an update - the dark carpeting, dark furniture and brick wall make for a dreary initial impression. Beds were comfortable and the hotel offers many conveniences for those on a quick business trip: free, fast wifi, a pull out desk for doing work, ample outlets, coffee maker in the room. (The "business center" is a PC and printer in the lobby, but there was no wait to use them.) Rooms also offer a mini-fridge and microwave. Bathroom was clean with good water pressure. The shampoo, conditioner and shower gel are attached to the shower wall in large dispensers; it more convenient than the mini-shampoo bottles usually offered in hotels and meant less waste.
There is a fitness room open 24/7. The hotel offers free happy hour (and was crowded at that time) and free breakfast. There is a TGI Fridays next door, plus ample shopping and restaurants nearby.
While not the lap of luxury, the hotel is a good bargain and offers exactly what I'm looking for as a business traveler.
