Drury Launches Spanish Version of Web Site
St. Louis, MO. February 9, 2006. Drury Hotels is pleased to announce that effective today it has launched the Spanish version of its web site, www.druryhotels.com. To access the Spanish-language version, the user clicks on the homepage link, "en Espanol", where the entire web site, including text, translatable images and the reservation system, are converted to the highest quality human translated Spanish. Drury is one of the first U.S.-based hotel systems to convert its site to the Spanish language.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 40 million native Spanish-speaking people live in the United States. It is expected that this number will surpass 50 million in less than five years. "As the Spanish-speaking population continues to grow in the United States and as we reach out to visitors from countries where Spanish is the primary language, it is important to provide these Guests with information in a language that makes Drury Hotels an easy choice," says Chuck Drury, President and CEO of Drury Inns, Inc.
No matter what their country of origin, Drury expects all guests will appreciate its value package which includes Free HOT! QUIKSTART® Breakfast, Free Evening Beverages & Snacks, One Hour of Free Long Distance Calls (domestic U.S.), Free High-Speed Internet Access, Swimming Pools (many indoor with whirlpools) and much more. Drury recently added 15 free minutes of long distance to both Mexico and Canada from any of its hotels in the U.S. This hotel company has repeatedly ranked #1 in Customer Satisfaction among mid-price hotels in the Market Metrix Hotel Index where 30,000 travelers are surveyed every quarter.
