I have a trade show at the NEC that I attend each year, and for the last three years I have used this Novotel for our group. The location is excellent right next to the airport, the train station, and the NEC. The place is clean and quiet, and the staff is friendly. The restaurant is fine for breakfast and for a quick meal, but I would by no means call it an excellent restaurant. Just gets the job done.
Areas for improvement:
* There are no drawers in the rooms. You have a choice of living from your suitcase or clearing out cubby holes for your clothing.
* WiFi is non-existent as far as I can tell, although I thought I remembered marginal service in the past. You have to depend on a wired connection.
* The fitness center is extremely small and appears to have been an afterthought. There are two stationary bikes though.
None of these are deal killers however.
