Each year I travel to Columbus for a State Conference at the Columbus Convention Center. About four years ago, the Drury Hotel was built and joined to the convention center. A group of us started staying there the first year that it opened and fell in love. Each room is clean and spacious with a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee pot. Free WiFi is also included in each room. Every morning there is a free breakfast bar in the lobby. During the day, there is free soft drinks and popcorn available and each evening is "Happy Hour" where each adult guest receives three free drinks and snacks.
Parking is fairly reasonable at $12 per day with free in and outs. Since the hotel is adjoined to the convention center, there is no need to walk outside in the elements.
We have always found the rates to be VERY competitive with other hotels in the area. Each year, before checking out, I am sure to make our reservations for the following year as this hotel has become very popular with conference attendees! If you have the opportunity to try a Drury Inn, I highly recommend it!
