Set a stone’s through away from the Gateway Arch, the Drury Plaza Hotel is a historic property with tons of extras and family-friendly amenities. The building used to be an old hat factory, and has since been renovated to include spacious rooms, an indoor swimming pool with whirlpool and a beautiful lobby. One of the best parts about staying at the Drury is the fantastic free breakfast. A complimentary hot breakfast of scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, pancakes and other goodies is available each morning for guests. Plus, there’s a free “5:30 Kickback” served daily, which has hot snacks and beverages. Other amenities: free Wi-Fi, free popcorn and soda in the lobby, an hour of free long-distance calling and free HBO. There are microwaves and refrigerators in all rooms, and on-site laundry services are available.

Everything was great about this hotel - the location, the indoor pool, the free breakfast, the free drinks and appetizers! We really enjoyed our stay here. We were able to walk to places downtown and a great view of the Arch. The staff was nice and helpful.
My family won a free night at any Drury Inn as part of a fundraiser, so we chose this one. We were given a suite, along with free parking. We arrived early in the day, and were pleasantly surprised when they had a room available and allowed us to check in at noon (instead of 3pm). Free popcorn and soda every evening is a nice touch. My kids liked that. The pool was nice too. I really enjoyed the hot tub, and appreciated that there were two of them in the pool area. There is a nice outdoor sitting area off the pool, with a partial view of the Arch. I would have given 5 stars, however, when we were going to leave, I noticed that there was a pink razor with hair on it left in the shower from the guests before us .....makes me think that the shower was not cleaned. Gross! Luckily we only stayed one night, and planned on showering at home. I'm hoping this was an isolated incident because everything else was great, and we have had great experiences with Drury Inn in the past. The free hot breakfast is excellent as well. Lots of offerings, and very well done.
