My wife and I stayed at the Drury Plaza for a week-end get away. It was rated #1 by TripAdvisor and we got a great daily rate with the TripAdvisor website. At check in we were upgraded to a king suite, corner room, 19th floor. No extra charge!
The suite was brand new with separate sitting area with couch, large LCD TV, fridge, and microwave. The bedroom had a king bed with another large LCD TV. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in with lots of pillows and Egyptian cotton sheets. Furnishings were new and upscale. All first class. And with a corner room, we had a great view of the city from the 19th floor.
After check in, we went down to the open house bar, picked up a few adult beverages and snacks and went to the 15th floor outdoor observation deck to relax. We got some advice of where to eat on Riverwalk from the front desk staff and enjoyed a great meal.
The hot breakfast buffet was just as advertised. Great start to the day. The hotel is right on Riverwalk. You have to walk down about a block to get to the main restaurant sections. No problem at all. We also stepped right out front door of the Plaza and grabbed a trolley to Market Square and La Villita.
The best part of the stay. After a long day of walking, you get in your bed, turn the A/C down to 65 degrees close the blackout curtains, and you will have one of the best nights sleep ever! My wife had to wake me up at 8am to get going!
Parking was $18 a day. That's life for a downtown hotel. You might be able to find a lot nearby for $10 (no in and out). But for the $8 difference to pull up, have staff unload your car and hand them the keys is well worth it.
Finally, high praises for the staff. Everyone was friendly, helpful and actually smiled at you when helping. Even the wait staff at the buffet and cocktail reception were friendly and smiling.
Great price, great location, great room, and great staff make Drury Plaza #1.
