We stayed here due to it's location to the town centre (Bullring, Victoria Sq & New Street station) and everything is much closer than it actually appears on the maps! The new entrance to the station is about 100 yards from the hotel and once you get your bearings it's a 5 minute walk to the Debenham's entrance at the Bullring.
The hotel was very busy with Christmas party goers at their function suites & the restaurant was not always open but the hotel is so close to China town you might be better eating there. We did eat in the restaurant one night and whether it's because they get business men with expense accounts but we thought the meals a bit expensive. Ok we did have steak but it didn't come with chips they were extra. So for steak & chips, one pint & one half of lager it cost £46 for the two of us. The bar has a terrace which might be nice to sit out on in the summer.
I don't think any of the rooms will be 'quiet', we were at the back over looking a multi storey car park & new street station but the bin men came about 8am making lots of noise but we were geting up then anyway.
The breakfast was very good, actually had fried bread which you don't find that often at Holiday Inn's but again very busy.
My only negative is that you walk straight in off of the street and theres the lift to all floors, you don't have to walk past reception so anyone could get in the lift to your lfoor. There is CCTV but reception was often very busy and I can't see how it can always be watched. When you've just walked past a few beggars on the street it makes you think.
