My fiance and I stayed at the Birmingham marriott for valentines day for one night. We booked online at laterooms.com and for £150 for both of us we enjoyed a standard room, 3 course meal, a bottle of champagne and chocolates on arrival as well as breakfast the next morning.
Check in was at 14:00 and we arrived at around 14;30. We were told the room wasnt quite ready and that they would need another 20 minutes or so. We had lunch in the hotel bar while our bags were taken to our room.
The rooms its self was very spacious, spotless and had a very large, comfortable bathroom. After relaxing in the room we used the hotel swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna. This was all to a high standard and decorated like a spa with a very relaxing feel to it. (Ideal for a romantic break).
Dinner on the evening was a 3 course set menu for £30 per head (although ours was incuded in our lateroom deal)
The menu was limited and a little basic (The chocolate fondue was overcooked at had tuned into a chocolate concrete) But nothing really worth complaining about.
My partner and I are very laid back people and try to avoid complaining but I must admit I was very irritated at poor room service.
The mini bar was not stocked and had a note on the mini bar itsself telling us to press the 'anytime' button on the telephone for a member of staff to stcok the minbar. I did this and was told it would be seen to. 2 hours later i was still waiting. I called back to be told by a different person that the mini bars are never stocked and you have to call for room service with specific orders of whats you want. I ordered 2 diet cokes, waited 20 minutes (I was very irritated at this point) and had to call back to remind them before it finally came.
Breakfast: The breakfast in the hotel was buffett style and possibly the best selection of cold and hot food ive ever seen in a hotel (Including top 5* london hotles ive stayed in).
Pratically every type of preprepared fruit and pastries aswell as smokey salmon, bagels, full english breakfast and much more. This was all to a very high standard.
Generally the whole stay was lovely. The room was much nicer than what we had hoped for and well worth the price we had paid. The swimming pool was a fantastic extra and the breakfast was fantastic. Id definately rate this as one of Birminghams nicest hotels and recommend it to family and friends.
Id go back for valentines day next year!
