I started an 18 month training course in January which has led to me staying in Birmingham 8 or 9 times so far this year and all but one of these stays have been at the Holiday Inn (they were outside works price range the other time).
The reasons why I always stay here:
Location - perfect for New St station and the Bullring (and about 5 doors down from my course!)
Service - reception staff are always friendly, polite and helpful when checking in and out. A couple of specific points. The first time I stayed here I realised quite late that I'd forgotten my toothbrush, but a quick trip to reception and I was given one for free. Another time I left my phone charger in my room but after getting in touch I spoke to someone from housekeeping and they arranged for it to be left at reception on the day of my next visit.
Rooms - rooms vary, some are better than others but they have all been at least satisfactory (my last stay on 14-15th Nov was room 404 which was very nice). They all have 42" flat screen TV's, big and comfortable beds, a small desk, tea, coffee etc... And most have both a bath and shower although I've stayed in the odd one with just a shower, which I should add is very nice and powerful!
I've stayed 3 times the night before I've had exams and had no problem with noise, the lowest floors have wooden partitions in front of the windows which help. The only problem I had with noise was one room had a connecting door to the adjacent room and I could hear the talking and TV from next door, luckily they weren't overly noisy!
Finally breakfast - awesome, I always treat myself to a full English when I stay. There is lots of choice, the breakfast area is nice and not overly crowded and the quality is always good.
So for all the above reasons, I'd highly recommend it and will definitely be staying here myself a few more times (Am already booked in for next exam in Jan)
