I have been watching the development of the East side with interest having grown up not far from Birmingham, So......
When my wife told me that we were going to La Tour for my 40th I was delighted. The hotel looks amazing and the technology is impressive. Check in is automated,slick and easy. We (she) had booked a "executive" room and it was fine. Nothing special, but fine. Pleased we did not have a standard room. There were no bath robes or mini bar which you would expect in a new 4 star hotel.
When I was told we had a reservation in the restaurant I suggested we go elsewhere as I had heard very mixed reviews. So we ate in a different part of the city.
After dinner we returned to the hotel and had a drink in the bar. The cocktail waiter was amazing and all was good!
Now to the sleep quality......
Not good. The mattress was no better than a budget hotel and the pillows were exceptionally hard. The AC did not get cold so the room was like an oven.Not conducive to a good nights sleep.
I travel weekly on business and I would not be happy with this hotel. There are many more comfortable places to stay in this price range.
Quite disappointed as I expected so much more.
