Pet Travel. Made Easy.

The Very Pet Friendly Drury Inn St. Louis

We arrived in St. Louis … a city I haven’t been to in 40 years. Ouch. The forecast for the weekend is sunny with highs in the 50s – should be pleasant to walk around with Ty and Buster with many opportunities for outside doggie dining.

But first, we needed to choose from the pet friendly hotels in St. Louis … and we opted for a pet friendly hotel chain we’d never tried before: Drury Hotels (1-800-DRURY-INN). The family-owned business operates about 130 hotels in 20 states … we’re staying in St. Louis at the 4th & Market location just a few minutes walk from the Arch, Busch Stadium, Edward Jones Stadium, and Laclede Landing.

The Arch - St. Louis, MO

We got a great room for $85 a night, and an upgrade to a two-room suite was available for $50. The price includes a hot breakfast and food and beverages (3 alcoholic drinks and unlimited soda) served between 5:30 and 7 pm. If that’s not enough, the hotel is attached to two full service restaurants.

Drury has a long standing policy of allowing pets – two per room and no breed or weight restrictions – free of charge. Pets are not allowed in the public gatherings of the hotel and may not be left unattended in the room (so use our directory of pet sitters if you need to). Because the hotels are not franchised, the pet policy extends to all locations. Ty and Buster give this place two duclaws up!  Woof!


There is some additional information I need to share about our stay at the Drury Plaza – St. Louis Arch hotel:

  • Our room included a king-size bed, mini-fridge, AND A RECLINING CHAIR!
  • There is FREE wi-fi and FREE long distance!
  • You can order FOOD TO GO from the attached Max & Erma’s and Carmines!
  • Next to the hotel is an OPEN PARK, great for those early morning/late night doggie pit stops!
  • One block away is a Starbucks (IN the Hyatt) that allows pets INSIDE!
  • The two-room SUITE UPGRADE is available for only $20 at the desk!

This hotel and location really rocks.  If you’re going to be in St. Louis (with or without pet) stay at a Drury Inn! And, if you’re looking for dog friendly activities, check out what we did when we were there!

    Now charging $35 per night for pets. We stopped going the for that reason.

  • Thanks Kelly! I agree – $10 is definitely a reasonable additional charge to stay at a Drury. They’re fantastic!

  • The chain now has a minimal $10 fee for pets but they certainly rock as far as pet-friendly and always have been. Plus they put you in normal rooms and not “pet only” or smoking rooms!

  • […] we were a bit nervous there might be breed restrictions. Luckily, Go Pet had this great post write up about the pet friendly Drury Hotels. We gave the Drury Plaza Hotel in Chesterfield a […]

  • Thank you so much, because of this post, we were able to bring the pooches with us to St. Louis and make a family trip out of it.
