“Drury is one of the last remaining family-owned and operated hospitality companies in the US and its properties reflect the attention to detail and extra commitment to quality that can only come from pride in ownership and a personal touch.”
Drury was founded in 1973 by Lambert Drury who originally ran a construction company building everything from gas stations to churches. Their first hotel was built in Sikeston, MO. They have since branched out to more than 150 hotels comprised of three different brands: Drury Inn & Suites, Drury Plaza Hotel and Pear Tree Inn. Their construction background and love of architecture led to them to purchase several historic buildings for renovation as hotels. These include the Union Market in St. Louis (built in 1925), the former Alamo National Bank Building in San Antonio (1929) and the former Federal Reserve building in Pittsburgh that was converted to a 207-room hotel with bank vaults turned into meeting spaces.
Drury also has a commitment sustainability and environmental stewardship. Outside they use reflective roofs, high-efficiency water heating and efficient LED lighting in the hotel and parking lots. Inside they are equipped with faucet aerators, EPA certified shower heads and high-efficiency toilets.
Drury’s simple founding promise—to provide clean rooms, friendly service and a good night’s sleep at a good honest price—has created a lasting legacy that has served millions of satisfied customers (and their pets) for fifty years. We have a feeling they’ll be around for at least another half century and look forward to their continued success.
