Best value in St. Louis
Posted Aug 26, 2016
This was my first stay at a Drury property, and my wife and I were absolutely blown away by this hotel. I travel frequently for business, and I've stayed at 4-star properties that weren't as nice or as inclusive as this one. The lobby is large and inviting, and very well appointed. One thing that stood out was how fast the elevators would arrive after called. If you've ever stayed at a busy, multi-floor hotel, then you know that waiting on an elevator can take a while.
We had a standard room, which ended up being a corner room on the 8th floor. We had a view of the old courthouse and a partial view of Busch Stadium. For a standard room, it was HUGE! Maybe the corner made a difference, but I doubt it. The bed was so, so comfortable, and the shower was a nice treat after a long day on the road and a hot night at the Cards game. Having the fridge and microwave were a bonus too.
But the best part was learning what the phrase "where the extras aren't extra" meant. They offer a full buffet meal each evening, including alcoholic beverages, and a full buffet breakfast each morning. Both meals and very fast wifi service were included in the price. Parking in the hotel garage was very reasonable, but make sure you park in front and check in first as you can't enter the garage without a room key.
The staff was top notch, and very friendly. I don't travel in areas where Drury properties are located very often, but when I am, they are my new #1 choice!
