If you want a cheap stay in a great location in St. Louis. Stay here. Don’t go in with expectations and you won’t be disappointed. If you will be bothered by slow service or not so up to date rooms, pay more and stay somewhere else. I was very pleased with my stay.
I was pleasantly surprised by my stay here. I was a bit wary after reading some of the negative reviews, but this hotel is perfectly fine! Yes, it's rather old and smells a bit musty, but the room was fine. In fact, it was better than fine... it was HUGE with two queen beds, two TVs, a couch, coffee ...
We had a great stay - walking distance to the Arch and great food. The kick back (happy hour) reception had great cocktails and appetizers. We ate there and didn't even need dinner. Also the breakfast was the best by far of any that we have had at any motel/hotel. Thanks Drury Plaza for a great ...
I always stay at the Drury Inn when leaving or arriving out of Lambert. This time I parked next door at the Parking Spot 2 and the Drury Inn gave me a discount coupon for the parking. The staff is so friendly and the location is excellent. I also love the meals, coffee and breakfast. Thanks!
I was pleasantly surprised with how kind and service oriented the staff were at Drury Inn. It is not a 5 star hotel but man the way they set up both breakfast and dinner and snacks and social time is awesome! I wasn't a fan of the open concept of the building on 5th floor since my room was right off of the open social space and it made me feel unsafe (I had three doors to my room, one to the hall, one to the adjoining hotel room and one to the social space, but my room was clean and I always had a bright hello when I came into the building :) The meals they provide are cafeteria style but it was part of the hotel cost which was awesome. I would stay here again because I was so impressed with the customer service. All the staff deserve a raise. They really make all the difference.
I stayed overnight during Comic Con. It's a nice place at a reasonable price.
This hotel gave me the privacy and comfort that I needed. Staff was excellent. Room service was fast and food was great. I love that the hotel did not have a lot of guests in the hallways being loud like you find at others. The place is so beautiful that you know as soon as you step inside to "behave". Loved seeing the wedding parties coming and going. If you want a mature hotel that is the right kind of mix of private but not secluded this is the place to go. Only criticism is no fridge or microwave in the room
With the Gateway Arch dominating the skyline and lending itself as a gateway to the West, it's easy to recognize that you’re in St. Louis, Missouri. Spread along the western shores of the Mississippi River, the city was built as a major U.S. port in the early 1800s, but its history as a center of commerce and culture spans more than 1,000 years. Today you can enjoy a football game at the Edward Jones Dome, marvel over the pre-Civil War architecture found in older neighborhoods, or sip a cold beer following a free tour at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery.
The Gateway Arch is the world's tallest stainless steel monument, situated on the riverfront on the edge of the Warehouse District, and the view from the top is well worth the 630-foot tram ride upwards.
Those who suffer from acrophobia or would rather keep both their feet on the ground still have plenty to do at the site, which is run by the National Park Service. Take in an educational film in Tucker Theater or check out the exhibits in the Museum of Westward Expansion, located in the subterranean visitor's center.
Families visiting the city should make the world-class Saint Louis Zoological Parktheir first stop. Located in the 1,300-acre Forest Park, the zoo's biggest distinction is that there's no charge to walk through its gates. The St. Louis Zoo is divided into several sections, including River's Edge, Big Cat Country and Historic Hill, home to hundreds of animals. One of the venue's biggest attractions is the Zooline Railroad, which winds its way around most of the zoo's perimeter, and offers an educational way to relax after a long day of fun.
Just across the Mississippi, outside of East St. Louis, is a fascinating archaeological site called Cahokia. The former city, which is thought to have been a major urban and trade center that peaked about 800 years ago, is home to Monk's Mound, the tallest man-made earthen structure north of Mesoamerica. Adventurous travelers who climb the steps and reach the summit of Monk's Mound can see the St. Louis skyline on clear days. The Cahokia Mounds UNESCO World Heritage Site also houses an interactive visitor's center and many smaller mounds as well as a structure called "Woodhenge."
Visitors staying at St Louis hotels downtown often get a fantastic view of the Mississippi and are in a prime location to take advantage of the history and grandeur of St. Louis. The Four Seasons is part of an entertainment complex, Lumiere Place, and offers guests modern amenities, a majestic spa and easy access to Busch Stadium and Edward Jones Dome. Those looking for old-world charm in the area will find timeless elegance and classic decor at the Omni Majestic.
Spanning over 2.5 miles of bustling office and retail space, Clayton Business District is a convenient 12-minute drive from Lambert International Airport. For luxury accommodations in this area, the Ritz-Carlton covers both work and play, with 30,000-square-feet of function space and upscale dining to suit every taste.
Baseball fans may want to make the trip to St. Louis in summer, while those who are more interested in the city's history should come in the spring or fall. Those cooler, less humid months mean that daytime temperatures, at an average high of 80 in September and 76 in May, are just right for meandering through the city or among the ancient mounds.
