Booked a night here as a late birthday present for my girlfriend, and as she enjoys Birmingham for shopping looked around at various hotels and found Staying Cool.
We booked the Clubman Cabriolet, but upon arrival found out we got a free upgrade to the Penthouse, which was a very nice suprise. The accommodation was excellent and spacious, with 2 big bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, and a spacious living area. There was a large wrap around balcony too, which gave a good view, but was fairly windy so didn't want to sit out too long on it. I had ordered a few extras like a bottle of champagne and so fruit and yogurt that was all waiting for us upon arrival.
The service we received was outstanding. After making the booking through the website a few months prior, I received a personal e-mail discussing my stay and reasons for it and such, that I thought was a great touch, rather than just a generic booking received computer response. While we were there the staff on reception were very friendly and accommodating and you felt that if there were any issues (which there wernt) they would have dealt with them perfectly.
Although it is certainly not a place to stay on a budget, for a special treat i would say the place is fantastic and thoroughly recommend a night here to anyone.
