America's Best Midsize Employers 2022!
When I think about Drury Hotels' approach to customer service, I often remember this quote from Maya Angelou: "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." I think that is precisely why our guests keep coming back − our team makes our guests feel at home.
We're incredibly excited to be once again recognized by Forbes as one of America's Best Midsize Employers in 2022. I am proud of our team and the spirit of hospitality they share with each other and our guests.
As travel is picking back up, we know your team is ready to get back out there, and our team is ready to greet them with a smile! Every single person on our team is a critical part of making our guest's experience an amazing one. We’ll do our part by taking great care of our team members so they can take great care of yours!
Thank you for choosing Drury Hotels, and we look forward to welcoming you!

Drury Plaza Hotel Broadview Wichita
Constructed in 1921, the original Broadview hotel soon became known as the premier hotel in the Midwest. The basement of the hotel was Wichita’s only speakeasy during 1920s Prohibition. In 2011, Drury Hotels renovated the hotel, preserving the mosaic mural in the ballroom and original elements of the lobby. The renovation received LEED Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for energy efficiency. Famous guests include Charles Lindbergh, Al Capone, Franklin D Roosevelt, and the cast of Gilligan’s Island! Click here to learn more!
Drury Hotels makes preserving our country’s architectural heritage a top priority. When we choose locations for new hotels, we often help communities by restoring historic buildings to create top-notch hotels. In addition to the Drury Plaza Hotel Broadview Wichita, we currently have renovated 11 historic buildings. Click here to learn more!
