Drury Inn and Suites
1205 S Price Rd
Chandler, AZ 85286
The Drury Inn and Suites is a fantastic hotel to stay at! I have been using this hotel for Scrapbooking retreats since January 2018, at that time the hotel had only been open for 6 months. I have done retreats at other hotels in the Chandler/Mesa/Tempe area and none compare to the Drury in: cleanliness, bed comfort (best hotel beds I've ever stayed in!!), staff attentiveness and friendliness, FREE hot breakfast, FREE dinner "kickback" which includes hot foods, salad, hot dogs, 3 alcoholic beverages, FREE afternoon popcorn and soda. For me, as a scrapbooker the best feature is the Ballroom lighting. It is bright and well lit, OTT lights are truly optional. Property also boasts a pool, hot tub, fitness center and a bar/restaurant with pub fare and full bar available after 5 pm till midnight.
This hotel is easy off the highway and 20 minutes from Sky Harbor (off peak), yet you do not hear the road noise at all. It is located 1 mile from the Chandler Fashion Mall district which has every restaurant (high end, fast food and in between) and store imaginable (Walmart, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, along with all the mall shops).
You can easily check in and not need to leave for the entire retreat, or you can come and go and not have to drive far for anything!!
I have been a regular hosting retreats here and have negotiated the best hotel room rates possible (also why I stay here).
Please keep in mind that this is Arizona, hotel room rates are nearly impossible to get under $200 from November-April as that is our high season here. Summer rates are extremely low, because, well no one really wants to come to Arizona in the summer. If you attend multiple retreats throughout the seasons and average out the price it's around $125-135 per night. And let's remember that covid is "over" per the travel industry and rates have gone up exorbitantly for everything travel related.
Looking forward to seeing you all in 2024!!
