The First "Adventure"

... and they questioned Bilbo because all the knights knew where to find Shrek. The knights drew their swords and were about to fight Bilbo when another knight came in and said that Fiona and Donkey were spotted inside the castle. The knights forgot about Bilbo and left immediately. Bilbo asked around the tavern and no one knew where Shrek was except this cat named Puss in ...

... away. They needed Bilbo because he had a special ring that allowed him to transform into different people and they were hoping to have him transform into Lord Farquaad and find out where Shrek was. Bilbo declined because he was scared that he might get hurt but also thought of his smelly, mean neighbor that always yelled at him. So ...

Budweiser: The Official Drink of This Mardi Gras

... up, my good friend Brad took me to the Budweiser brewery where we saw where the magic is made, a few Clydesdales, and got two free beers. If you're ever in St. Louis take the Budweiser tour, it's a free tour and you get two free beers at the end to boot. Or if you just want free drinks go too, you don't even have to take the tour to get them. Fun Fact: our tour guide claimed that they brew 2 billion gallons of beer at a time at the St. Louis brewery. Anyone want to fact check her ...

Grumpy Gato, Car Troubles and Storms!

... was so determined that I somehow managed to fit a 20lb cat into a shirt made for an 8lb dog. Needless to say... Gato and I were both very grumpy with each other. I knew I had to change out the shirts, but as soon as Gato was freed from the tiny one, he bolted, and lodged himself up on the underside of the guest room box spring. The following production that ensued required 3 adults, 1hr of time, and the complete dismantling of the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Drury Inn Union Station Saint Louis

    Fantastic Stay!

    from

    Just got home from three fabulous nights at Drury. Hotel is close to everything: shopping and dining. With three children in tow, the buffet breakfast was a major plus. The hotel pool is on the small side, but only two other guests were ever there enjoying it with my family. Additional bonuses include free stay for family pet, adult beverages every night of stay, free long distance, and in-room free soda and popcorn. We got an excellent deal calling them directly, cheaper than travel sites. We visited the zoo, science center, history museum, Gateway Arch, Steinberg's Skating Rink, and watched a River Otters hockey game. With all the free amenities from the hotel, and the free places to visit in St. Louis, my family saved money on this mini-vacation. We will definitely stay at Drury on our next vacation, and in fact, are scheduling a weekend away in two weeks with Drury. Nice place to stay with kids and pet!

    Never had a problem...

    from

    My wife and I have stayed at the Drury Inn Union Station on a number of occasions, and we have never had any problems with the rooms, staff, or in general -- in fact, we usually try to stay there whenever we're in St. Louis! The staff has always been very pleasant and accomdating (and we were there one morning when there was a bomb threat in front of the hotel on 20th St.!), and the rooms have always been nice and clean.

    We are loyal Drury guests because of our experiences here, and we consider it to be "our" hotel in St. Louis -- matter of fact, we'll be there next month!

    Great Stay!

    from

    Traveled here for the Fourth of July Weekend. We got a great deal on Expedia. We had free parking, free hot breakfast, and free snacks and drinks in the evening. You also got free soda and popcorn in your room, replaced daily. The pool is kind of small, but it was still good. It is nice to have a lifeguard on duty, although children are not allowed to swim without a guardian present. There is a hot tub right beside the pool. Union Station is right next door and you can walk there any time you want. We also walked to the Cardinals Games. It was about 5 blocks away, which is good exercise since you will be sitting for a long time. I hate riding metrolink to Cards games because it takes so long to get on one.

    OK but a bit overpriced

    from

    First, I give Drury kudos for restoring an historic building rather that dozing it and building new. They kept a piece of local history intact and I like that. They did a nice job, too. The place is nice but not fancy. Their slogan is "Extras aren't Extra!". They're not extra...they're built into the price already. We paid about $135 on average per night and the rooms remind more of the $95 price range. They are neither large nor luxurious. We also requested and received a non-smoking room. Our room did not smell of smoke but the common areas of our floor sure did.....like an old ashtray. For the extra $40 per night you do receive the following freebies: Parking, hi-speed in-room web access, breakfast and 3 drinks. The breakfast is OK and so are the drinks provided each evening in a sort of happy hour theme but there is not enough tables and chairs provided so a lot of people have to stand. Be aware there is also no room service and no food available in building after about 10:30pm. This surprised me in this price range. Also when I asked the night clerk where I might find an open restaurant after 11:00pm, all he gave me was a blank stare. I would think they would get this question a lot and might provide little maps to local late night eateries if only fast food joints. Union Station is next door and that's convenient but there are no restaurants open there after 11:00 either! When the Cardinals games let out you would think the local eateries would stay open to take advantage of all the traffic....but apparently not. We were in town for Cards games and were disappointed to find everything at Union Station, including Hard Rock closed after the game! Obviously this is no fault of Drury but does limit the appeal of staying near Union Station. I think next time we come to town for Cards games we'll try some place else.

    Great Place to Stay!!!

    from

    Stayed for five nights the week after Thanksgiving in 2004. The location is excellent, we parked the car and walked to Union Station. Room was excellent, clean and comfortable, very nice. Breakfast was great and included daily. Evening Happy Hour was an excellent way to meet other guest. Wonderful lobby. The original part of the Inn was the Railroad YMCA. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent.

    Noise, noise & more noise

    from

    First night here was last night. HVAC unit in room near window woke me up every time it ran. I tried to sleep in ear plugs and it still woke me up. At 2am I turned the lousy thing off altogether, but continued to sleep in ear plugs.

    Absolutely Wonderful!

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel five times in the last two years. I have always had a wonderful room, exceptional service, and a great experience. If possible book early, this hotel oftens sells out. The hotel is in a renovated historic building. The lay-out is beautiful. It is located next to St. Louis Union Station a fun place for dinner, the comedy club, or paddle boating. Union Station is located on the Metrolink. Just coming to see St. Louis city or go to a game, no need to rent a car. Just hop on the Metrolink (train) from the airport and exit at the St. Louis Union Station (proceed pass Union Station to the Drury Inn). Drury Inn offers a wonderful, FREE, hot breakfast buffet. Here's a very important feature: hotels in St. Louis city limits offer a lifeguard at their pools (it's a city ordinance). The pool and hot tub are exceptional. The lifeguards were pleasant, professional and serious about safety. Covered, secure parking is free. This a great deal. The Plaza Drury Inn charges $10 for parking. Don't miss the Manager's Reception in the evening. Have a free glass of wine, relax, and enjoy your stay at this great hotel.

    Expensive Dive

    from

    On a cross-country car trip, after a long day of driving we were in need of a reward and opted for splurging on a downtown hotel in St. Louis to enjoy a little big city fun. It was fun, but in no part was this due to the hotel, other than the location.

    Terrific place to stay in St. Louis

    from

    We do a weekend every so often in St. Louis. It is a fun small city--lots to do, especially with children (St. Louis Zoo, Science Center). We usually either drive home, or stay out near the airport.

    Great location, nice hotel

    from

    We used the Drury Inn for our out of town wedding guests and were absolutely thrilled with the hotel. The pool area is nice, the free hot breakfast is outstanding, and you can't beat the location. Seven great restaurants within 100 yards, plus right across the street from Union Station, and minutes from the Arch and the rest of downtown. The rooms were very nice, and the service was extremely friendly and helpful.

    Great hotel value.
