Drury Plaza Hotel Riverwalk
Travel Blogs from San Antonio
Left Fort Worth on Monday and drove the Hill Country down to San Antonio. when they say hills, they don't mean big ones! Texas is flat as a pancake and dry as a biscuit (came up with that one myself!) Passed through some lovely towns such as Fredericksburg. Not too much cowboy, in fact a very German influence - very weird! But no matter where we …
... thru Artesia then Compton stations. It was a normal day. We changed trains at Willowbrook and went upstairs for the green line towards LAX. An old black man asked me for change. "Gave my last two quarters to a young lady at Del Amo," I said He grinned his five yellow teeth at me. "I know," he said, unzipping his shoulder bag to reveal a scrawny tabby kitten, maybe a week old. "She got fleas. I need money's for the treatment." "Good-luck," I said. "Thank you kindly," ...
... River Walk and almost bumped into someone famous. Most people outside of the dance scene (generally me too) won’t recognize the name, but we met Joshua Allen, the winner of season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance. He was very friendly and quick to offer photo ops for all. Izze was in heaven talking about the dance convention he was attending and asking about the other favorites from that season.
The River Walk was beautiful and bit cooler due to ...
... Actually, I can't blame them since it's basically ratchet strapped together. We also noticed that after leaving Las Vegas we have seen NO tow rigs older than about 10 years. Most are damn near new. We finally saw one about the same age as ours, and surprise surprise, it was an old first gen too. We did see several dead trucks along the highway though. Must suck it have somebody in a truck averaging the age of 30 years (rough ...
... good. Hugh was super excited to see that he got to eat more ribs. Jason, yours were so so SOOOO much better.
Now we are here pretty much naked trying to stay as cool as we can in this probably 90-85 degree night.
Here's to hopefully a good nights sleep!
I am starting to really miss Portland, Or. Still lots to see but will be home soon.
Goodnight Portland peeps and goodnight to everyone else not in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Drury Plaza Hotel Riverwalk San Antonio
We arrived a little early at about 1:30 but our room was available. During our 4 day stay we had no problems with noise from other guests or the elevator. The full hot breakfast and manager's reception in the afternoon were greatly appreciated. We took advantage of the hour of free long distance calling as well. Michelle, assistant manager is a delight ~ Always friendly and helpful! Our room was large, bright and airy with a view of the Riverwalk. Riverwalk access is just across the street and down a short block. Because of our experiences at the Drury Plaza we stayed at other Drurys during our trip through the south. Just sorry they don't have any on the west coast!!! I might add we stayed at the Drury during the A.I.A. convention when the hotel was full but we always could find a table at breakfast and in the evening for drinks. Very well run establishment!!
Our original reservations for our April stay in San Antonio were at the Drury a block away, right on the Riverwalk - when I read in TA about the construction and noise, however, I changed my mind and we stayed at the new Drury, though there hadn't been many reviews by then.
Mitte April haben mein Mann und ich zwei Nächte im Drury Plaza übernachtet und es war toll. Die Lage ist super. Gerade wird an einem direkten Zugang zum Riverwalk gebaut, aber selbst jetzt ist der Riverwalk nur wenige Schritte von der Vorderseite des Hotels entfernt. Die Angestellten waren fantastisch. Wirklich jeder vom Personal, mit dem wir zu tun hatten, war extrem freundlich. Außerdem haben wir auf der 11. Etage gewohnt, also wurden wir nie von irgendwelchem Baustellenlärm belästigt. Gehen sie auf jeden Fall auf die Aussichtsplattform in der 21. Etage. Wir hatten über die Internetseite des Hotels gebucht und haben auch einen Rabatt bekommen.
My husband and I stayed at the Drury Plaza two nights in mid-April and loved it. The location is great. Construction is going on to give it direct Riverwalk access but even now the closest Riverwalk access is only steps from the front of the hotel. The staff was awesome. Every single staff member we saw, no matter where we were, was extremely friendly. Also, we were on the 12th floor and we were never bothered by any construction noise. Make sure and check out the observation deck on the 22nd floor. We booked on their website and got a discount also.
We stayed here for six nights in early April. We'd booked a standard suite, but when we got there thought it was a bit small for two adults and two teenagers - especially given how messy our teenagers are! The receptionist was wonderful - gave us various other options, and let us look at a bunch of different rooms, before working out something that we were really happy with. (We ended up with a suite and a standard double.) So our introduction to the hotel was great - the decor in the lobby is breathtakiing, and the service equally so. (Thanks, Amanda!)
The hotel was beautiful and clean. The room was immaculent. King bed w/ jacuzzi suite on the 12th floor. The view wasn't great, only a tiny sliver of the river w/ high-rise construction 20 feet away. The bed was comfy enough, but again like the other reviewers here say, thin comforter (if you could even call it that).
We are a family of 3 and stayed 2 nights earlier this week. We really liked this hotel. We had a 1 bedroom suite with 2 queen beds. Corner room with lots of windows and nice view (19th floor). Microwave and cube fridge. 2 flat screen tvs. Nice decor; nice bathroom, however, not much in the way of toiletries. Would also agree with last reviewer that bedding was minimal - just one thin blanket and 1 thin coverlet. We didn't need anything more, however. Nice pool and two hot tubs on the roof (23rd floor). Happy hour every day late afternoon (2 or 3 free drinks and snacks). Free soda & popcorn all the time. Free breakfast buffet (hot with eggs, sausage, pancakes). Free wireless. Free hour of long distance every day. $15/day for parking with in/out privileges (no valet; very easy in/out). Across the street is access to one end of the Riverwalk. Easy walk to lots of restaurants. I would highly recommend!
We went as a family of four for 3 days of our Spring Break. The hotel has well-appointed decor, very simple and not tacky. We had a corner room which had a FULL SIZE fridge and a sink and microwave in the living area, which also had a flat-screen TV, a sofa (not sleeper) and a chair. Lots of windows, and if you are on a higher floor, you have views of the city, including the Riverwalk, since the hotel takes up an entire block. Then there was a separate bedroom w/ a real door and 2 beds, and another flat-screen TV. Then another door takes you to the bathroom. The roof-top pool was great, and even tho' it rained for most of our trip, we had a great time. The FULL breakfast was wonderful (but don't wait until the last minute to go), the free popcorn and happy hour were also a nice touch.
Drury Hotel- riverwalk
We are very happy to have followed the advice of other Tripadvisor entrants. The Drury was a perfect place to stay for us. It was just on the fringe of the nightlife area of the Riverwalk; therefore, it was not noisy or too highly trafficked. The rooms featured high ceilings and beautiful furniture and decorating. My family and I were very happy to have chosen this hotel.
