This was my second stay in the hotel. When going to the NEC the location of the hotel is great. Lobby, bar and breakfast area are nice, but this is not the case for the rooms...
The rooms are dark and definately need to be refurbished. I believe some rooms have been; when checking the traveler photos, you'll notice the difference between the rooms.
I had a deluxe twin room, the older version and located in the B lobby... The room was nothing special and was really dated, no curtains, except for the ones that keep even more light out.
The bathroom...not what you expect in a Hilton. Very small, old and worn. Broken wall tiles, mold starting to appear. You don't get what you pay for.More
