Stayed for a night in January. Got a deal with travelzoo which allowed us to afford two rooms (family of four). Although check-in is automated and done using computers, there was someone at the front desk who actually checked us in. That proved useful as they were able to tell us where we could park. Parking is a bit of an issue as it is not their own and you have to make do with the car park in the shopping centre or one of the side streets. Neither is appealing as the area isn't that particularly nice. That said, our car was safe (probably because it's a normal car and not an expensive model).
Rooms are decent. Good range of tea/coffee making facilities with biscuits. It is four star hotel so no slippers or robes. Separate shower which for me is a deal breaker as it always distinguishes an old hotel from a new hotel.
We had breakfast the next morning. It was good and set us up well for the day.
The hotel is fairly new and looks it. Nicely decorated and spacious. There is a gym which we didn't get the chance to use, but it looked decent with good modern equipment.
The area, like is said earlier isn't the nicest looking. Run down and close to A road. It does look like there will be some building work done to the area, but for now it doesn't help the hotel. On the plus side it is literally on the doorstep of the shopping centre.
All in all a very nice hotel which I would use again if I have to Benin Birmingham again.
