As hotels-attached-to-conference-centers go, this one was pretty decent. I somehow ended up with a suite room, which had a separate living area with a small kitchen and an extra tv, so that was nice.
The staff here are excellent. During breakfast, one of them walks around picking up dirty plates and chatting with guests, which seems unusual to me. She's friendly and helpful.
The rooms were okay; I wasn't thrilled about walking around barefoot so it didn't pass my dirty test. I agree with a previous reviewer that there weren't enough covers on the bed, and I was also leery of getting the ones that were there near my face, so I ended up sleeping a little cold. The bathroom was spotless, so that's why this earns a "very good" instead of "average".
My biggest complaint was the noise; I'm a light sleeper and had major problems staying asleep here. Doors slammed constantly, and in addition to the doors there was a separate loud banging noise (inner building result from the doors?) that went on all night. Toilets flushing and showers from the 4+ rooms surrounding me pretty much did me in. Even if you are lucky enough to have quiet people surrounding you, just the hotel noises are enough to annoy someone. Bring earplugs!
One other issue which is indirectly related to the Drury specifically but worth mentioning: I was one of the unlucky few to arrive into the Flagstaff airport and attempt to get into town without a car -- big mistake. None of the hotels here, except for the Radison, offer shuttle service to the airport which is silly because it's 8 minutes away. Several of us flew in for a conference, and stood outside the airport waiting for a cab for an HOUR AND A HALF -- as if traveling all day wasn't bad enough, we then couldn't get to our hotel! I'm told cabs sometimes sit outside the airport waiting when flights come in, but there wasn't one to be found, and although we called 5 cab companies, no one ever showed up to get us. I'd still be there, but we managed to bribe the Radison driver to take us to the Radison with the guests staying there, and then we walked to the Drury. The Drury was completely unhelpful, even though we called several times and told them we were stuck and couldn't get into town. The whole situation is something I'd care never to repeat.
