Overall I enjoyed my stay there. Everything was top notch, with the exception of the room cleaning staff. They could have done a better job. Below is a breakdown of the hotel's features.

Cleanliness: Things in the lobby area was pretty spotless. Very clean and the restaurant staff do a good job of maintaining things during breakfast and "Happy Hour". However, the people that clean the rooms could use some more training I think. First of all, when I came into my room there was toilet paper in the toilet. Gross. The rest of the room looked ok, with the exception of some dust. There was some dust issues in the hallways as well (over fixtures, fireboxes, etc). I don't have strong allergies to such, however some people might have problems with this. When they cleaned my room the first time, they didn't really vacuum the floor well (there was still things left behind), and they didn't replenish the toilet paper. The sink wasn't cleaned very well either. The next time they cleaned, they did a better job. Though they vacuuming could have been better, and they didn't dust either time. This is an area the hotel could easily remedy.

Location: Its downtown, directly across from the Arch. Lots of things in the area: bars, restaurants, attractions, transit, Busch Stadium, etc etc.

Service: They were all very friendly and attentive. They do well in this area.

Decor: Its a comfortable 3 star hotel. The lobby is very, very cool. Water features, and quite spacious. Art work all over the place. Very nice.

Beds/Room: Soft and comfortable. Pillows are nice, both feather and foam. Room was spacious. Some of them have a view; mine did not.

Extras: Breakfast is free and quite good. Scrambled eggs, sausage, pastery items, gravy, cereals, milk, juices, pancakes, etc. They have popcorn until 10pm (It starts around 4 or 5 I think) in the lobby. They have all day softdrinks as well. From 5:30pm until 7:00pm they have their Kickback time. This is free to all guests. You can get up to 3 free alcoholic drinks (not overly strong, but they weren't bad). They also have hot food items. This is salad, baked potatos, hotdogs, nachos, pretzels, chips, meatballs, chicken fingers, vegatable eggrolls, as well as spicey chicken bites. These are all free and in a buffet style setup. You can eat as much as you want.

Internet: They have both wired (ethernet) and wireless (wi-fi) internt in the rooms and common areas. It is a highspeed connection, which wasn't too slow. They also have 2 computers in their "business center" area. Those are a bit dated and slow. Also, their Excell program wouldn't opening my documents for some reason. It worked fine on my own computer and office computer.

Parking: They have a parking garage, which is pretty tight spacewise. SUV's might have a hard time of it. Also, it costs $15.00 a night.

Security. Your room key will be needed to access almost everything. Seriously. They take security VERY seriously. Its needed to get into the parking garage, to get onto all elevators, to get into the stairs, to get off at any floor via stairs except floor 1, to get into the hotel after hours, etc etc. I felt very secure, which is nice since downtown St. Louis can seem a bit scary.

Misc. They have a pool and jacuzzi. Which are nice. Also a fitness center, which was basic but not too bad. Room service is Carmines Steakhouse which is next door. Expensive, but really good food. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance however.

Overall, I really liked my stay at the hotel. It was awesome with the exception of the room cleanliness. If the hotel would tighten a bit on the cleaning staff in the rooms/halls, it would be a really great place to stay. Its the only area I think they could work on.

A reasonably priced hotel in Downtown St. Louis. It's not fancy, it doesn't have room service or any of the high-end perks of nicer hotels. But it's clean, well maintained, and has useful extras.

The wi-fi is good and free. There is free breakfast (which is good), and free popcorn in the evening. We were never around for happy hour, but I hear they offer free drinks in the lobby in the early evening.

The hotel also has a parking garage (an extra $15/day), a steakhouse next door and a Max and Erma's off the lobby.

Next time we're in St. Louis, we'll probably stay here again.

We stayed here recently for a few nights while in town for a conference. Overall enjoyed our stay at this hotel.  Liked the evening reception with free drinks and heavy snacks/light dinner.  Breakfast is included as well, and reasonably varied.  The location is very convenient for all the downtown sights.  Wouldn't mind staying here again on another visit to St. Louis.

This review is long overdue. We were in st. Louis in August with our granddaughters.  Our stay was delightful. The desk clerk Sharron was wonderful.  We travel with our grandchildren often and will look for the Drury hotel wherever we go.

This hotel gets great reviews, but make sure you know what you're getting. The location is fantastic and near everything in downtown St. Louis. You do pay for parking, but it is not unreasonable. The small lot in the building frequently fills up on weekends and we were put at the lot down the street. It's not too far, but getting there would be a drag in the rain and in the winter. Our room was fairly clean. I'm a nut about hair and yes, I found hair on the blankets - yuck! The bathroom was clean but incredibly small. Some of the rooms have sinks outside the bathroom, but ours was inside so only 1 person could get ready at a time. The towels are paper thin and scratchy. It was convenient that they provided body wash, shampoo & conditioner in the shower (attached to the wall). Plastic cups are used for the the bathroom. I can't imagine how many they through away each day. Pillows and mattresses are just okay. Never made it to evening happy hour but we did breakfast both days. Food was okay, but they frequently ran out of items, coffee, silverwear, etc. There were not enough people to clean the tables, so it was hard to find somewhere to sit. The floor was unbelievably sticky near the food area both days. I know it's free and that's great, but they really are not geared up for the weekend crowds. Our daughter attempted to use the pool, but the water was so murky so got out quickly. It was also unbelievably crowded, just like all other areas of the hotel.

This place was perfect! It is half a block to the arch, few blocks to the ballpark. The rooms are clean, and pretty modern. Parking garage - $15/for your entire stay. Free breakfast that was actually good - a little cut throat but when you mix free food and people it's never pretty. They also offer 3 free drinks/night at Happy Hour. Great location, excellent service, I would recommend this to anyone staying in St. Louis! Average price is like $125/night

Very nice hotel, the staff was very friendly. If you want to take part of the free breakfast and dinner/drinks you need to get to the lobby early.

The quick take - great for families, not so great for girls or couples having a nice night on the town.

Other than that, I have to say it's a good price for what you get.  Free snacks and (exceptionally weak) drinks at happy hour and free breakfast, which is nice.  But, when that's your hook, it tends to get super overcrowded with loud, messy kids.  The pool was really crowded, and the water consequently gross and dirty.  

Our room didn't have a window that faced outside and was laid out very strangely.  I shot up at 8:30 in the morning having no idea what time it was.  When your window faces the brightly lit hallway, 2:30 am looks the same as noon.  Weird.

I was very impressed - unbeatable location, tremendously friendly staff, all around terrific customer service, a clean, comfy room. Added bonuses - complimentary drinks and a free, delicious breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed the place, recommend it for all - oh, and the price wasn't terrible either.

Do your business here, people!

The staff are super friendly, the hotel itself is very nice, and it's a great value!  They have a happy hour in the evening with free food and drinks, and other freebies (and a cheesy motto about all of their 'extras')

The best example of service: I left a really nice skirt in my room.  When I realized it and called about it a week later, the housekeeping department promptly returned my call, said they did indeed have the skirt and would be happy to ship it to me FREE OF CHARGE! Which they promptly did. :-)

Stayed here for Urbana missions conference two weeks ago and I loved it! The hotel is right near the arch. The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. There's also a complimentary hot breakfast every morning and its actually good (eggs, sausage, pancakes,etc). They also serve light food at around 5pm like nachos and hotdogs. Next time I'm in St. Louis I'll definitely be staying here!

The Drury was fantastic! We stayed on the 10th floor and were amazed by the view of the arch..literally outside our window. Also, the hotel has great security and we felt our car was very safe at all times. In addition, the hotel offered a 'kickback' to their guests which basically consisted of a free happy hour where they offered various hot apps, wine and mixed drinks all complimentary. The kickback was wonderful an the compliment breakfast in the morning was even better! Everything from scrambled eggs and sausage to homefries and biscuits. All in all we love our stay here and would absolutely return again---highly recommend!

What a greeeeeeat experience!  My husband and I decided to surprise our sons with a unique Christmas gift this year.  We booked Christmas Eve night at this hotel.  I called ahead of time and asked for them to get "special treatment" during our visit, since this was a Christmas gift.  I spoke to a manager (Areanna).  It was woooonderful!

When we walked in the door, there was a sign at the front desk welcoming our boys to the hotel and wishing them a Merry Christmas!  How nice!  They will remember this experience for life!!!  They also greeted them with gift bags with some miscellaneous items.  It was great!

The room was nice.  The hot food, popcorn, and soda in the lobby throughout the evening was terrific.  The hot breakfast the next morning was wonderful.  We felt veeeery secure.  You had to use your key to get on the elevator to go to the rooms and to go from the garage into the bldg.  The price was extremely reasonable for all that we got.  The only negative was the price for parking.  Geeeeeeeez...$16 is a little outrageous!  $10 would be more reasonable.

It was a great experience, and we HIGHLY recommend this place to others!  Areanna was the BEST!  I'm sorry her shift ended shortly after we arrived.  :o(

I am giving it four stars because the staff is just great.  The rooms themselves are clean but a little out dated and the carpeting in some of the rooms are in need of upgrade.  Aside from that, you get free breakfast, free dinner snacks during happy hour and it's in a very good location.

My friend and I stayed here while driving across the country, and it was such a great experience. First of all, the rooms are incredibly spacious and comfortable. The beds were stocked with pillows galore, the pool room had not one but TWO hot tubs, and the lobby offered free drinks between 4 and 6. Our continental breakfast had such an amazing variety of food - biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, hash browns, sausage, fresh fruit, oatmeal, cereal, and more. If all of our hotels during our time on the road had been this awesome, we would've been very happy campers. Definitely recommend!

Absolutely friendly staff and super convenient for I-70 travellers who want to stop and spend a day or two enjoying the Gateway Arch, the Museum of Westward Expansion, the Old Cathedral, the waterfront, and the Old Courthouse - all just steps away. Location and parking ($15/night) are another convenience in case you want a quick drive to the Jefferson Barracks, Calvary & Bellafountain Cemeteries, St. Charles, etc. or just to get back onto I-70.

Clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed, and awesome hot breakfast.  They even upgraded us to a room with a view of the Arch - terrific at night and at sunrise!

We're first-timers to the Drury line (we're usually at mainstream hotels) and were pleasantly surprised and impressed!   You want to stay here!

This is my FAVORITE Hotel!   We had never stayed at a Drury Hotel before.  From now on I will seek them out when we are traveling.   The room was great and in top shape.  

Every evening  (from 5 - 7:00) they offer free drinks and food!   I'm talking about 3 alcoholic drinks for every adult in your room.  They serve free soda, coffee, popcorn from 3-10:00 pm.   The food consists of baked potatoes, salads, chips, salsa and nacho cheese, hot dogs....... (too many items to list).   In the morning they also offer an awesome hot breakfast--eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, freshly made pancakes, donuts, muffins.......    Everything is fantastic!   They even have table service that will clean up after you.    

We definitely will be back here!   Another awesome plus for this hotel is, it is directly across from the Arch in Saint Louis.   Great views from the hotel, and so easy to simply walk across the street to get to the Arch.  

Highly recommend!

The location is great.  Close to the arch, the ball field and bars and restaurants.  The staff is super....from the front desk to the servers at breakfast.  They go out of their way to provide great service.  Beds and linens were very comfortable.  I would definitely recommend this hotel.

For a reasonable price, you get a clean room, modern hotel, and lots of freebies.  Get in line EARLY moochers, because people pile up for the free THREE drinks and free food buffet at happy hour.  They also have a free breakfast buffet.

The lobby has a life size bronze statue/art installation/fountain of Lewis and Clark.  Weird, but awesome.  

Parking (with FREE in/out) is only $12 and right across the street.

Free wifi!

The location is one block from the Arch.  Stay here!

We drive to Las Vegas about once a year.  Out of all of the hotels we've stayed at this one is probably our favorite.  It's better than the hotels we've paid twice the price for and that's without all of the free amenities offered.

If you want to be downtown, this is the way to go.  You could not be closer to the arch.  Parking is $15 a day, but is worth it for the convenience.  Once you're checked-in and parked, you really don't have anything else to pay for.  The Wi-Fi is free and fast.  Free breakfast, dinner, plenty of free drinks for adults, and they even have popcorn available in the lobby if that isn't enough.  I don't mind paying for food, at all.  I would usually pass up a free meal, if there is something better nearby.  They have a buffet of free food available in the evening, which is surprisingly very good.  Also when you get your free drinks, ask for a double and you'll save time on your trips back to the bar.

The pool/hot tub were clean and uncrowded both times we went, keeping in mind we were here during the week.  They also have a nice 24-hour exercise facility, if you're into that type of thing. For the price you can't beat it.

Randomly picked this place since it was near the arch. We arrived to a really friendly staff who immediately informed us that we were entitled to complementary happy hour drinks, food, and breakfast...

Room was clean and comfy.. Free internet too..

Nice deal!

I stayed one night here on a business trip.  I wasn't excited by the idea of a Drury Inn, but it was a really nice plce in a great location. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from Busch Stadium and pretty much next door to the Arch. My room was nothing special, but it clean.

Upon check-in, I was presented with a card good for 3 drinks the night of my stay during happy hour.  Happy hour was fantastic.  The 3 drinks were small, and the beer available was the local favorite (Bud Light), but for free it was nice.  Also included in happy hour was a variety of food choices on a serve yourself buffet including baked potatoes, chicken fingers, and nachos.

The hotel is also dog friendly.

How can you go wrong with 3 free drinks for happy hour each night? I didn't dare go near their plaza of heart stopping HH food choices (hot dogs, mac and cheese, etc) but those are free too if you were a hotel guest.

Conference rooms were ok, a little stuffy and cramped but like many other conference rooms I have been in before.  Had a nice little spread of coffee and ice water in the back which was cool.

The rooms were standard, clean, and the water is SUPER hot in the room.  This specific hotel is located across the street from the arch and food choices were pretty limited for a walking radius.  We ended up walking about 20 min each direction to find something other than Ruth's Chris steakhouse.  

Overall, not bad and it did the trick!

I like this particular Drury Inn for its convenient location, great value and the classy rooms.

The location just cannot be beat.  It is across the street from The Arch; there are restaurants, museums, and stadiums within 1-2 blocks walk.  

The value:  The complimentary breakfast beats any other "hot breakfast" at other mid priced hotels I have stayed.  Selection was great and quantity was great, too.  They kept refilling those big trays!   AND...there is that happy hour around 5PM.  We each got 2 free drink (yes, not just beer and wine, but mixed drinks, too) tickets.  And then there are the hot dogs, baked potato, nachos and such.  While the food offering is not the most exciting, but if you have a family with kids, it is definitely going to be enough to save you at least $50 on dinner.

And the rooms were nicely decorated in the classic style.  While the rooms were not large, but the bathrooms were newly remodeled and very clean and roomy.

I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in St. Louis.

This is the best hotel in down town STL I've stayed in.  Lot's of good about this place being that it has a lot of competition around the down town area.  Breakfast and Free Drinks like a couple of their competetors.  Big rooms/Bathrooms.   My only complaint is that the room was musty smelling  I believe we stayed in room 627 if anyone from the hotel cares to deodorize the room.   I guess I could complain about no on site parking or Valet option either, but it wasn't a huge deal.  If I'd had my family with me, I might have lowered the star rating for having to drag my 3 year old and all the crap he and my wife travel with over a block to the hotel.  At least valet my car... I will pay for this simple service.

I was in town for a conference and the Drury Plaza at the Arch was one of the conference hotels.  

The Drury Plaza at the Arch had a strange front door that took a few seconds to figure out, a rotating one a bit further down, and a welcoming lobby hosted by Lewis and Clark with Sacagawea and baby Jean Baptiste Charbonneau strapped to her back.  The expanded lobby had a sort of old world feel - part heavy ornate wooden table and chairs with a variety of levels divided by heavy wooden balusters.  It seemed to fit the overall theme of the hotel.

The front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating.  They pointed out places of interest, including a few good places to eat nearby.  And helped with taxis and such.  They were concerned about tornadoes in the area and discussed defensive procedures clearly to all the patrons of the hotel.

The rooms were nice.  The beds very large, but may be a little soft for some. There were pillows galore - four in all. I was lucky to have a window to the outside world; not all rooms have this luxury, so be sure to ask for a window if you enjoy the sunlight and nightlife for that matter.  The AC is a bit noisy and blew directly on my head the whole stay; there didn't seem to be any way to adjust the wind direction; that was a negative.

The star may have been the food at the Drury Plaza at the Arch.  They have a real hot breakfast buffet - pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, and potatoes.  That is accompanied by a variety of toast-able breads, cereal, donuts, yogurt, and portable fruit (oranges, apples, and banana).  My only issue was it was the same exact breakfast every single day; you may need a change after a few days.

Every evening at 5.30, there's a sort of happy hour.  Grownup patrons of the hotel are allowed three free adult beverages.  There is also a buffet of hot dogs, fries, mac and cheese, chicken fingers, etc.  It's bar food.  The hotel was overrun by Cardinals fans most of the time I was there; it was there pregame and within walking distance of Busch Stadium.  So, the alcohol line stayed pretty well attended; the bar food seemed easier to grab and go.

Overall, the Drury Plaza at the Arch was a great hotel that was convenience to most places.  It has a nice breakfast and a happy hour.  The rooms are nice as well.   If you don't like the Cardinals or large crowds, you might want to pay careful attention to their home schedule or stay a bit away from Busch Stadium.  I wonder if it's the same when the Rams are in town.

In all of my travels, this has got to be one of the best deals that I have ever gotten for the price, location, quality, and cleanliness.

I knew that I'd be passing through on the train, and wouldn't have a rental car, so I looked on the web for one that was centrally located. I knew enough to know that I didn't want to be in the same neighborhood as the train stations, and so I came across this one was right across from The Arch; read some of the reviews; and booked via their website with an online special at $99 p/night!

The place is a fairly good size, very clean, and nicely appointed for a nice 3-star hotel.  Lobby had lots of seating for hanging out with the wi-fi.

They gave me a corner/end room with lots of windows that overook the skyline and a view of The Arch, which was pretty exhilerating in the morning sunlight. The room was fairly new and clean, and the matress was pretty comfortable.

The free breakfast buffet was one of the better ones that I have been to with hot items such as scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, etc. in addition to the typical fruit, cereals, and pastries.

Lastly, The Gateway Arch was across the street, as with the Old Courthouse, and the park trails. If you feel like a short walk, you can walk to Lacledes Landing, which is the arts and entertainment disctrict on the riverfront.

In preparations for our jaunt across the country, I started looking for inexpensive but not too sketchy hotels; I ended up booking hotels through four different sites -- Orbitz, American Express, AAA, and Drury.  The best deal for this particular hotel was found through Drury's website, using the eSaver code, I was able to book a room with two queen beds and a partial view of the Arch for around $160, which included parking in the hotel's in-building lot.

We arrived late in the evening, sadly after the evening reception and drinks, which sounded like it was amazing.  There is a little alcove out front near where horse carriages often stop; we pulled up there and I went to check in.  The parking lot in the building has very narrow, angled parking spots, which can be tricky to navigate.  

For a partial view, I was expecting to maybe see a corner of the Arch, but our room faced the river and we had a pretty good view!  The Arch, riverfront park and the historic downtown area were within easy walking distance, so it was great for our very short stay to be close to everything.  The room and bathroom were clean enough, although I was a little surprised at how cheap and small the bath towels were.  

Breakfast the next morning was excellent -- in fact, this hotel pretty much spoiled us for the rest of our trip.  There were pancakes, sausage patties, fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, breads and muffins, an assortment of teas and juices.

A little pricier than some of the other options in the area, but worth it for the convenient location and amenities.

My husband & I have had the pleasure of staying at two different Drury Inns and we make it an effort to stay if we are near a location.

This specific location does NOT disappoint.

It is literally right across the street from the famous St. Louis Arch. You cannot get any closer unless you slept in the park!

One of the 'perks' of the Drury Inn is that they offer a pretty great breakfast as well as a 'happy' hour in the evening. The menu is mostly bachelor food (nachos, hot dogs, hamburgers) but we ate enough to skip a 'real' dinner that night.

This location was also very large and offers two indoor pools. I wish I had known and had my swim suit with.

They do have on-site parking but it is $15/day but makes it nice to feel secure in a 'downtown' location as well as being able to walk to everything nearby.

Busch Stadium (where the Cardinals play) is about 2 blocks away.

Perfect location and I'd stay again if coming through St. Louis!

Maybe I'm a little snobish when it comes to hotels at this point.  I checked in here recently and upon entering I was impressed with the lobby.  Unfortunately the rooms don't really match that elegance at all.  They seem pretty dated, although they are large in square footage.  The bathrooms are pretty nice but the ceilings are office style acoustical and that just screams 1975.  

The good things were the happy hour and the breakfast offered.  It's a pretty decent collection of hot foods, hot dogs, chips, suasage, eggs, buscuits and gravy.  Not too shabby.  And they offer 3 drinks during that time.

Service was fine and the check in was quick and easy.

This place is the worst! Cooks and employees DO NOT wash their hands before returning to work. Staff is utterly useless and begs for tips. Way too many stains on the carpet. The pool was infested and unclean. Never again!

The service is awesome. (Getting to the negative quick cuz I want to give good hypes for this place - had issues with payment not being split evenly among my roommates and had to check upon it multiple times. so it does get annoying but ultimately it was handled properly)

The location is GREAT! Right next to the Arc and for the cost of the place, it was amazing. They have the dispenser shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, so there's plenty for multiple people. and it's a lot more green.

The business center is quite small but it gets the work done.

There's a gym on the 8th floor, which is typical and normal.

The breakfast is HOT breakfast :) With the entire spread of eggs, sausage, pancakes, bread, cereal, etc. REALLY great.

They also had something called kick-back at 5:30 PM and that's not just some chip and salsa. It's a legit full-on meal. It can definitely help you save some money if that's one of your goals for the trip.

This was a great hotel for the price point. We had a nice, big clean room with a helpful and accommodating staff. We did have to pay $16 for valet parking, but it was in the center of the city, near the ballpark, and this is par for the course with this kind of set up. The breakfast was the standard hot breakfast buffet, with the exception of organic granola, which was a nice touch. The main dining area was huge with lots of tables and a very friendly staff. Overall, it was a great experience for a one night stay in a new city. I'd recommend it to others. Nice job Drury Plaza!

I was able to get this hotel at the last minute a few days ago. My boyfriend and I are in tons for the Cardinals and Dodgers game. When I gave Drury Hotel a call they stated that they only had smoking rooms left. I was in a bind so I took it and they stated they would have the room smoked out for me. They also  accepted dogs as well with a pet fee at $10 per night for cleaning up the rooms after the pet. They also have a parking garage which was $16 a night with in and out privileges. They also offer state employee discounts but once I got to the hotel the front desk stated that you had be Missouri state employee. The clerk went ahead and gave me the discount anyway since I was already told that I would receive it. Once I got to my room it did not smell like a room that was smoked out. I came well prepared just in case this happened. I had my can of Lysol and a air freshener. Overall this hotel is at a central location and close to everything. I also liked the fact that it wasn't very far from Busch stadium so could walk to the game instead of worrying about parking. The front desk staff was very friendly and nice. I will definitely book at this hotel the next time I'm in St. Louis, Missouri.

This place wasn't too bad. It was very average. I nice place to stay if you will only be there for a weekend or a night. The beds were comfy the bathrooms were nice. They have free breakfast in the morning and that was pretty good. They even had hot dogs. The pool was pretty nice too. It included a hot tub.

Front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast, dinner and drinks while you stay in hotel. Bed was comfortable.  Hotel is walking distance to Cardinals Baseball Field.

Super Friendly staff!! Everything is well maintained and cleanliness was 5 star. Double queen room was a bit small for 4 for my liking. Free drinks and apps from 5:30-7 at the bar was a nice addition. 2 blocks from Busch Stadium and 7blocks from the Dome. Placement was amazing. Plenty of near by bars and restaurants.  I would stay again.

This is a great hotel right by the arch. I stopped here during my cross-country trip with two dogs. The pet few was small and the staff was friendly. I would stay here again.

I had an amazing view of the arch from my room. The price and location were great. The free breakfast and happy hour were nice, but the food was meh and finding a table during these times was a frustrating experience.

OK. Let me get this straight. I can stay in a beautiful hotel downtown St. Louis 100 yds from the arch, 2 blocks from Busch stadium, get free breakfast buffet for the entire family, free parking, pool w/2 hot tubs and they give me a late checkout, access to the parking garage for a couple extra hours and I only pay $99?????? I just became a huge fan of Drury Hotels!! I honestly can't find anything to complain about...sorry :)  OK. THE WEATHER SUCKS!!

It's an absolutely beautiful hotel. With nice natural park-esque common areas on every floor. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous and the service could not be nicer. Plus, it was walking distance to the Arch, Right Field, and the Rams's Stadium. Amazing location!

Honestly, I wasn't the biggest fan of the rooms. I thought they were a little dank and dated and not as impressive as the lobby or even the hallways and common areas. Everything seemed a little Holiday Inn-esque, which wasn't what I was expecting at all. A little too old-fashioned (and I usually like traditional furniture). I also was not a fan of the shampoo/conditioner/shower gel. I understand that the dispensers is a great idea in terms of optimization, but the quality was terrible. My hair is not high maintenance and after that wash felt dry and unwashed. The toothpaste was also abysmal. Bring your own toiletries for sure!

There are a lot of great perks though, which bumped this up to a four stars from me.
- Free breakfast (6-9AM) of sausage, oatmeal, powdered eggs, yogurt, fruit, and milk.
- Free dinner (5:30-7PM) with hot dogs, chicken tenders, baked potatoes, mac 'n cheese, and a cocktail bar with three complimentary drinks for my stay.
- Free popcorn and soda after dinner (till 10PM).

We got to stay just a night and our experience was amazing! For a King sized bedroom at $109.99 it was well worth it. You walk into this beautiful lobby with a mural and a water fountain. The front desk personnel were really nice and greeted you with a smile once u walked up. Once ur done getting ur room they usually have a valet but we got here kinda late so we self parked but I was still very impressed. It was a security garage parking where u need ur room key to open it and once you park u can ride the elevator straight to ur floor. The room was beautiful! The bed was soo soft it felt like you were sleeping on a cloud. The pillows were exactly the same. My goodness I think the bed was what made the whole room that much better. Two things why this didn't get the 5th star... 1) the view we had was of a building under construction. 2) the restroom didn't have a vent or fan so when somebody forgot to courtesy flush everyone knew it lol but other than that, best hotel I've ever been in!!!

I stayed here for an interview. I arrived late and the front doors were shut. Thankfully someone saw me and opened the door. When I booked the room I made sure it was a non-smoking room. To my surprised they put me in a smoking room.... there are STILL smoking rooms these days?? I told her I was severely allergic to smoke and need to request a room change but they said that the cleaning crew 'de-smoked' it and I should be fine....

It wasn't fine. My hair dryer also stopped working. I had a hard time breathing throughout the night, my face broke out in hives... yes, if I could give this place a 0, I would.

I very seldom take the time to review, but the outstanding experience I had at the Drury Plaza Hotel prompted me to write:
For starters, the hotel is older, but extremely well kempt.  The room was clean and had a very comfortable bed.  Free breakfast and afternoon food were great and free, yes free, happy hour was a PLUS!  Also, you cannot beat free wifi (that was fast as well)!  

But the staff is what made this stay great.  I can tell you that I did not meet even one unhappy or grumpy employee.  EVERY one was friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make this stay the very best!   It is so nice to experience suck great customer service and great work ethic!  

You will see me again!

I've stayed this hotel twice when in St. Louis. It is one of my favorite places to stay. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly and the rooms are awesome. The only downside is the screaming children running around in the summertime. The extras are a really nice addition to the hotel, food included always makes me happy and their breakfast in the morning is amazing. I will stay at this hotel anytime I'm in St. Louis because I love it that much!  It is in walking distance to most of the tourist attractions in the area. I will admit the parking garage is incredibly scary, like it's out of a horror movie, but the hotel itself is worth it.  :)

My husband and I made St. Louis our pit stop on our way from Wisconsin back to Nashville so we could be tourists.  We chose the Drury because of it's location and for being the best price among the others, what a great decision!  Everyone we talked to on staff was super nice.  The lobby is very pretty with a couple fountains and big chandeliers, they have happy hour until 7:00 with OPEN bar and FREE apps, we got some beer wine and shockingly delicious mac and cheese.  Their garage is located right inside the hotel, very secure with garage doors and you can get to it from the elevators from any floor, so convenient and nice!  We payed a little extra for a room with a view of the arch and it was gorgeous.  Nice size room with updated bathroom and LOTS of windows for arch viewing.  We were able to walk to dinner and to the "bar scene" and back to the hotel no problem, we slept with the curtains open so we could enjoy the view as we drifted off and again as the sun came up.  Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in St. Louis.

We booked this hotel in particular due to reviews on various travel sites such as Tripadvisor and Expedia.  I definitely would not agree with any of the sites that rate the rooms as "exceptional" or "#6 hotel in all of St. Louis."  I would however, probably stay here again.

They gave us a much earlier check-in than requested which was very nice considering we had 5 hours to kill until regular check-in time. Upon arriving at our room, being the clean-freak that I am, we scour everything before unpacking - and to our dismay found several items unclean and one absolutely unacceptable.  Pulling the sheets back on one of the beds revealed dry crusty boogers (with nose hair included) on the sheet. I called the front desk but due to it being so early no other rooms were available. They sent room service up immediately and changed everything on the bed. For the hassle they comped our parking fees which was also considerate of them - even though we shouldn't have had boogers in our bed in the first place.

The furniture was old and beat up, the arm chair was stained and just worn out, the arms were dirty and the headrest was discolored a dark brown.  They obviously don't dust either, I posted a picture of the desk in the room, I swiped the ledge and it was filthy. One night I dropped something that rolled under the bed...where I found popcorn from the last guests so I am assuming they didn't vacuum. Just another reason I won't walk barefoot on hotel carpet!

Customer service was exceptional, everyone we encountered was very friendly.

The free breakfast and free drink/dinner was a great perk. We enjoyed all the breakfast foods, we did not partake in the dinner meal, just the drinks. They give you a coupon for 3 drinks per evening, we stuck to beer but they offered all sorts of adult beverages. The lines for both dinner and drinks can get long so I would advise to get there early, or get there late!

The parking garage is sort of a joke - VERY tiny spaces, I'm sure to get the most out of it, but just be careful maneuvering, I imagine there has been some small accidents in there.

Free Wi-Fi which is nice, we were expecting to visit the pool but after seeing it thought we would spare ourselves. It is inside, dark and dreary and the chlorine was so overpowering I'm not sure we would have made it out alive if we swam. Most of the time there were a lot of small children going to/from the pool and swimming in pee just doesn't do it for me.

Honestly one of the best hotel stays we have had.  Weeks after coming back to San Francisco, my husband and I still find ourselves missing Drury!  It's nothing impressive looking from the outside, but the inside is clean, well maintained, beautiful, and the best amenities you could ask for.  

We got a corner suite, which was BEAUTIFUL and included a living room, bathroom, and bedroom with windows covering two walls.  The bed was super soft and comfortable, and the room was always clean and comfortable.

Breakfast is included in the stay which consists of scrambled eggs (not overcooked!), potatoes, sausage, pancakes, omelettes, donuts, muffins, and basically anything else you would want in a continental hotel breakfast.  Yes, it's an unhealthy hotel breakfast, but it's a good one that I looked forward to every morning!

In the afternoon/evening they serve "hot and cold apps" which basically means an awesome artery clogging junk food dinner if you want it to be.  They have chicken strips, mac and cheese, hot dogs, salad, and free drinks!!  My husband was elated with the free Johnny Walker that he got each afternoon.

What I miss the most is the fresh popcorn every night on my way up to my room.  I seriously became addicted to this stuff, and it may have started a bad habit of eating popcorn every night.

There is free wifi throughout the hotel and in the rooms.  Parking is pricey at $16/day, but that's not unusual compared to the surrounding hotels in this area.  There is a free business center and printer.  I did not use the laundry services, gym, or pool but they are available.

Everyone here was so friendly, and I really did feel like this was a home away from home for my handful of days in St. Louis.  I just wish Drury would make their way out to the West Coast because this hotel definitely convinced me that Drury is one of my favorite places to stay!

Wow, I am very impressed with my stay at the Drury Plaza. It was my first time visiting St. Louis and based on reviews on Yelp, made the decision to choose the Drury Plaza, and I am so glad I did.

Firstly, a one night two queen size beds and a corner room was very inexpensive considering the location of the hotel (right next to the Arch), and all the amenities the hotel offers. My friend and I stayed on the 10th floor and had a view of the Arch from our window, it was very cool. The beds were comfortable and there is a TV with tons of channels. Only downside is the bathroom was pretty small.

Also, FREE FOOD! They have a kick back at 5:30-7 where you get a drink ticket valid for 3 drinks (mixed drinks, wine, beer), which was really cool. I've never stayed at a hotel that offered this. The food they serve is ok, but I mean it's free. While I didn't care for the pasta or meat balls, they also served hotdogs and nachos which luckily was pretty good. We unfortunately missed breakfast.

Customer service here was top notch, from the people working the desk to the servers and bartender during the kickback, everyone was so kind and accommodating. We also were even able to do a later check out (12PM instead of 11am) which was great.

Oh, the only major drawback in my book is the parking. We had to park at Ball Park stadium which is about a block away. Parking is $14 overnight and you have to leave the garage by 2PM.

Based on my experience here, I am more likely going to choose staying at Drury Inn/Plaza hotels in the future.

Did I stay at the same hotel as other Yelpers? Drury Plaza at the Arch? Seems I did; but my experience was hardly out-of-this-world. This is a cheap hotel. Some people seek out cheap hotels and they'll probably love this property as it's likely better than some of the competition in this quality/price range. That said, personally, after one stay here, I would not return.

The best thing about this hotel is location. Steps from the Arch. Blocks from Busch Stadium. You can't get a better location than this.

An OK thing about this hotel is the freebies. Free breakfast, free alcohol, free junk food, free soda, free wi-fi. They don't nickel and dime for the most part, and that's nice. Problem is that none of these freebies are all that good (except the wi-fi, which was the fastest hotel Wi-Fi I've ever seen). By the third morning the only thing I could eat at the breakfast bar without fearing my stomach being twisted into knots were muffins and boxed cereal.

By far the worst thing about this hotel is the guest rooms, particularly the "interior" rooms. I unfortunately got stuck in one of these rooms, and by the second day I was a zombie. You don't often realize how important natural light is to sleep patterns until it's gone. Rooms are clean enough (ie. don't look under the mattress or the bed). The deep red carpeting and ancient furniture makes the rooms feel dark and dated. My room had an extremely pungent fragrant smell like they were trying to cover something up. I spent as little time as possible in my room during the trip to St. Louis because it felt just so depressing.

Customer service is hit-or-miss. Some hotel staff were very friendly to me. Though I also had exceptionally bad customer service while trying to buy some overpriced bottled waters in the little store off the lobby.

Coming into St. Louis we decided to stop for the night so we got a queen sized room. The people at the front desk were very friendly and the room was also very nice. Definitely worth the price.
