Going to be right on the button about this review. I'll get the negative bit out the way first. This is the second Marriot where I've found that you can't get access to the movies on the tv. However, on this occasion and after 2 requests to reception, this issue was sorted òut.
We went to Birmingham for a weekend shopping trip as it was the missus's birthday. The hotel I think is in a brilliant location. I'd heard about the local traffic problems so deliberately didn't want to stay central. The car park cost £12.50 for the stay which I feel is reasonable. We taxied the 3 miles to the main shopping centre and that cost a fiver each way. Again, cheap at the price for a hassle free shopping trip. Another great thing about the location is that Cineworld and Odeon have cinemas less than 200 yards away, if that's what you fancy. Mind you, reviews of the Odeon were horrific.
We chose the new mobile check-in service and actually checked in via my phone the previous evening. On arrival, a quick signature, key collection and we were in. Good stuff...
Hotel itself, brilliant. Lovely room, lovely big comfy bed, brilliant bathroom and the bath, simply amazing. So big and it filled up in less than 2 minutes. Type of bath you'd want in your own place. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Spa was brilliant, relaxed in the hot tub for an hour and then a quick float around in the pool.
Dinner in the restaurant was amazing. Totally relaxing, great service and fairly priced. Good food as well.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this hotel and we loved it so much, we'll definately return later in the year.
