Drury Hotels continually focuses on providing the best value for guests. In 2003, they were among the first in the hotel industry to offer free hot breakfast to their guests and followed up in 2010 by introducing free 5:30 Kickback®, with dinnertime snacks and cold beverages. As its latest enhancement, Drury Hotels recently introduced The Kitchen + Bar for late-night dining options at 16 Drury Hotels, with plans to add eight more by the end of 2024. 

In 2022, Drury Hotels earned a record-breaking 17th consecutive J.D. Power award for Highest in Guest Satisfaction Among Upper Mid-Scale Hotel Chains. Drury Hotels’ J.D. Power distinction sets a record for the most consecutive wins in the travel and hospitality category.

As part of their ongoing commitment to the communities they serve, Drury Hotels team members joined together earlier this year as part of Drury Cares, a company-wide initiative that shares Drury team members’ time and talents with local nonprofit organizations. Volunteer activities included a variety of causes and initiatives including serving at food banks and animal shelters, sending care packages, hosting a dance for a local children’s home, serving breakfast to first responders, and more. Culminating these efforts, Drury Hotels presented a tractor trailer truckload of food and non-perishables to help impact more than 70,000 Missourians through the Southeast Missouri Foodbank.
