50th Anniversary

50 Years of Gratitude

"In 1973, the first Drury Hotel was built on a simple promise – to provide clean rooms, friendly service, and a good night’s sleep at an honest price. 50 years later, that promise still stands. And it’s because of you, our guests.

Here’s to fifty more.

Thank you,"​​​​

Our Roots

What started as a small family business in 1973 remains 100% family-owned and operated today. The Drury brothers grew up on a farm and learned the value of hard work from a young age. They started out as a small construction company focusing on plastering and tile setting. With their focus on quality, service, and value, the Drurys built a reputation - constructing everything from service stations to churches, and finally, hotels. 50 years later, we continue to build, own, and operate all of our 150+ hotels, providing a level of consistency that is unmatched in the hospitality industry.

50 Years of Warm Welcomes

We are proud to celebrate 50 years of warm welcomes, comfortable accommodations, and genuine care for our guests. Thank you for your trust and loyalty in Drury Hotels. 


50 Years of Free Amenities

We’ve been evolving our amenities to exceed our guests’ expectations for 50 years. From expanding our food and beverage offerings at breakfast and 5:30 Kickback® to building Kitchen + Bars and offering late-night dining options for our guests. 


Drury Cares

In honor of our 50th year, our team members joined together 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.


Cheers to 50 Years!

We invite you to celebrate with our new specialty drinks, now offered at 5:30 Kickback® through August.
