Comfortable stay. Parking was an issue. The breakfast buffet had variety but was very bland.

Easy to find. Close to ballpark. Lovely lobby. Friendly staff and very clean. I'm planning on staying again.

The hotel was great, the restaurant attached to the hotel has good food. The kickback meal was surprisingly nice and breakfast was awesome! The pool was under construction while we were there so that was kind of a bummer, but overall great place to stay

We stayed here for a marching band competition, because our friends were staying here. I'd never heard of Drury hotels. The room was great, had a lovely bathroom , around the corner from the living area, with a nice vanity and large mirrored closet. It had a nice kitchenette area for our snacks and beverages. But what we really loved was the complimentary happy hour with drinks, beer, wine and food. (Baked potatoes, hot dogs, nachos, and a few other things.) What was unusual, was that it was offered on the weekend, and not just Sunday through Thursday nites. We enjoyed taking a break down in the spacious lobby/dining area at this time of day, before heading back to the event. And this wasn't a typical lobby....lovely chandeliers, dark wooden tables, couches. Nice.

The hotel was full. Staff was AWESOME. Met a lot of people from all over. The food was mediocre and cold. The elevators were super slow.

Overall we had a great stay. Had a little bit of a problem with the key card and had to go down to the front desk 3 times to get it fixed. The last time a staff member came along to make sure we could get into the room. The only thing we were disappointed about were the pool hours because it didn't open until 9. Would have been nice if it opened a little earlier and/or maybe had an adult only time.

Loved this hotel. We made it just in time for the hospitality supper. We were not expecting it to be a full fledged supper experience with 3 free cocktails a piece. This hotel was a little more expensive than what we normally book, but the huge supper & breakfast buffet and the location to the Arch was well worth it. We actually saved money with the included meals. Only complaint would be the carpets in the rooms & hallways was filthy. I don't go without shoes in a hotel anyways, so no big deal. But would recommend they be cleaned. We also took the carriage ride that was available outside the hotel. It was an extra expense, but neat to see the sites.

It will b really nice there when the grounds at the base of the arch is complete.

Here at this Drury, they put your safety first. Room keys are needed to call an elevator on the first floor, access parking lot, and access building from the parking lot. Being "locked it" made me feel more comfortable. I shove this hotel.

Staff was exceptional. Facilities and room were clean.

Loved it! Very nice clean hotel, big lobby, staff was very friendly, free meals during stay, walking distance to the Arch and Bush Stadium.

Breakfast and afternoon cocktail was awesome, highly recommend it!

Nothing but good thoughts , everything was good ; food , drinks room and staff . Good location

I chose the Drury because of its proximity to the conference I was attending. Another reason is the hotel has free breakfast and a happy hour with light fare in the early evening. I didn't want to worry about what to eat early in the morning and when I'm tired after the conference. The food is nothing special. The breakfast is the same every day: pancakes, sausage patties, biscuits w/ gravy, store bought donuts and bagels, yogurt, and fruit. I wasn't able to go to the happy hour every night but the nights that I did they had the same dishes: mac and cheese, chili, hot dogs, chicken tenders, nachos. The fare is more kids' food than happy hour food. Of the food mentioned, only the mac and cheese tasted good. Since I don't drink alcohol, I didn't even use my drink card. On the plus side, the staff was very courteous and room is clean. Furnishings are pretty old and the pillows were lumpy. The air coming from the vent smelled funky sometimes. The room did have a large screen TV, fridge and microwave. If the main goal is to see the Arch, then this is the hotel.

Excellent location (walking distance to stadium, arch and much more!), great amenities (with young children, we really enjoyed the quick spot for breakfast and evening snack), and clean/comfortable rooms. Would definitely stay at this hotel again!

The hotel was clean and comfortable. I was a little disappointed that we didn't have a real window to the outside. It looked out into the center of the hallway and there were some skylights, but the sit-up of the room meant the window was oddly behind a partial wall anyway. Just would have preferred natural light in the morning. The breakfast and the happy hour were excellent. Lots of good food and drink in the morning and afternoons. Really a nice touch. Chris Fox the food and beverage mgr. had great suggestions for placed to try for dinner in the community. He didn't steer us wrong once.

What a fantastic place! Free breakfast & dinner. An easy walk to everything, plus clean rooms, and nice fitness center.

The good includes the downtown location, as well as excellent and friendly assistance at the front desk with directions to our destinations. The room for eating breakfast is spacious. The not-so-good includes the room had a smell of a deodorizer that's used to eliminate cigarette smoke. Internet was a little slower than a lot of other hotels. Breakfast was just okay eggs - other than hard boiled - would have been nice. This hotel is good enough to use again, but not good enough to not check out other options before doing so.

This hotel is in a great location between Busch Stadium and the Gateway Arch. It was a very busy Cardinals/Cubs weekend and the staff did a very good job of keeping the hotel clean and orderly. Our room was on the 5th floor at the end of the hall with an Arch view. It was on the small side but was clean and had a great view. Our parking pass was for the covered stadium lot across the street. We were very satisfied with our stay at the Drury.
