December 9, 2019, 11:16 AM · One of the nation's top hotel brands is going to Disney World.

Drury Hotels today unveiled its plans to open Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista in 2021, replacing the Best Western Lake Buena Vista.

Drury is one of the nation's highest-rated midscale brands, with a legion of fiercely loyal customers drawn by its complimentary 5:30 Kickback hot food and beverage receptions that include free beer, wine, and mixed drinks... in states which allow that. (Here's a sample menu.) The Disney Springs location will feature the 5:30 Kickback as well as free hot breakfasts, WiFi, and 24-hour business fitness centers.

"This property has been a long time in the making, and we are delighted to see it take shape,” Drury Hotels President and CEO Chuck Drury said. "We'll be able to give our guests an unforgettable experience as they visit the Walt Disney World Resort and everything the colorful community has to offer. Being named an official Walt Disney World Hotel means we have been entrusted to adhere to exceptional service standards. Given our track record of providing award-winning guest service, I know our top-notch team will make our new property a magical experience for our guests and visitors."

In addition to the freebies, the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista will offer a poolside cantina bar and grill, a "kitchen and bar concept," and a grab-and-go marketplace. The hotel will offer transportation to and from the Disney theme parks as well as other area attractions.

It's interesting to see what looks like part of the existing three sided tower, with an extension on one side. However, it's unclear what's behind--is there still a triangle? And as much as I think these are nice hotels, that name is the worst. Always makes me think "dreary." Nice addition to a good collection of on-property hotels.
