Drury's 5:30 Kickback® is Now Available at all Hotels
(ST. LOUIS, MO) – March 3, 2010 – Drury’s 5:30 Kickback® is here to stay. Starting today, all Drury hotels will serve free hot food and cold beverages. Drury began rolling out the 5:30 Kickback last December and its success has allowed the St. Louis-based hotel chain to spread the amenity to all Drury Inn, Drury Suites, Drury Inn & Suites and Drury Plaza locations.
“It’s been great helping our guests save a little money during these difficult economic times,” says Chuck Drury, President and CEO of Drury Hotels Company. “I’ve personally enjoyed the 5:30 Kickback at many of our hotels with our guests… and we all agree it’s a great way to make traveling a little easier and less expensive.”
Drury’s 5:30 Kickback features a rotating menu of food and drink items every evening between 5:30 and 7 pm. Chicken tenders, charbroiled meatballs, fresh carrots & celery, buffalo-style chicken wings and hot dogs are just a few of the items on the rotating menu featured throughout the week. Drury continues to serve variety of free cold beverages, including beer, wine, mixed drinks and soft drinks (alcohol service is subject to state and local law).
The 5:30 Kickback further supports Drury’s commitment to provide travelers with the very best value in lodging. Drury was the first in its segment to offer free hot breakfast 7 days a week, free evening beverages 7 days a week, free long-distance calls, and will now be the first to offer free hot food in the evening, 7 days a week. All Drury hotels also offer free wireless Internet, business centers and swimming pools.
Drury’s free amenities, friendly staff and quality product have helped the hotel system earn numerous industry awards.

Power and Associates as "Highest in Guest Satisfaction Among Mid-Scale Limited Service Hotel Chains" in the firm's North America Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index Studysm.
