“5 Star Service - Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

I stayed at La Tour for two nights on a shopping trip with my mum at the beginning of November. The hotel is a five minute walk from the bullring, and a ten minute walk from new street station. We arrived early but were allowed to check into our room before 12:00, they gentleman that checked us in was very helpful, Trey, I think his name was, top service so thank you!
The hotel is very clean, luxurious and modern, very well decorated. We had a twin room which was a sufficient size, with a large bathroom and an amazing shower! Tea and coffee facilities in the room which is always a bonus!
We had breakfast included and there was plenty to choose from, the food was of a very good standard.
The bar staff and the ones at breakfast were all very friendly. Can’t fault the hotel at all, would definitely go back again!
I was also quite suprised that with it being near a road, you don't hear much traffic noise at all.

I stayed at Hotel La Tour on Saturday evening as I had a family birthday party to attend in Birmingham. I have to say that the only word I can use to describe my stay was 'excellent'! The hotel is in an ideal central location with it's own car park. The staff are so welcoming and friendly and can't do enough for you. The hotel itself is lovely, and the rooms are both comfortable and luxurious. You can even turn the lights on and off using the technology on the phone next to the bed! It feels like they have thought of everything, and I would recommend that you need to try it for yourself to understand how good it is.
A fantastic experience and I will definitely be staying there again soon!

We have visited the hotel on a couple of occasions prior to our stay. We have used the hotel for drinks on a night out and for an afternoon tea. Both of theses were good experiences so we decided to stay at the hotel as part of a shopping weekend.

Our room was smart, clean and very much up to date with free wi fi and a large tv with recording facilities. We took advantage of the half price champagne offer and enjoyed listening to an excellent female vocalist in the main bar area. Our meal was also excellent and service both in the restaurant and bar was really top class. The hotel building is very modern and stylish but it is the staff that help make it a great place to stay.

Breakfast was buffet style and was again of a very high quality.

Birmingham is a great city and this is without doubt a great hotel.

A big thank you to all staff for making our short stay such a good one - we will be back.

Many thanks for your recent review on trip advisor. I am delighted to read you had wonderful experience choosing to stay at the hotel for the first time after your previous visits for drinks and sampling our Afternoon Tea. Look out now for our festive Afternoon Tea from the end of November throughout December.
I am glad to see to that we have met your expectations for our bedrooms and facilities but also that you have enjoyed yourself drinking champagne on our Friday Fizz offer listening to our live music. I hope you didn’t spend too much money shopping at the weekend and I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the not too distant future. Kind Regards, Jane Riley

We stayed for two nights (28th - 30th, 2013 October) in an executive suite booked through Secret Escapes.
The hotel delivered exactly what it promised. Everything worked, staff friendly, brilliant air conditioning and so on.
If you are looking for a cosy hotel with a roaring fire in winter and chintz curtains and chairs you will be disappointed. If you are looking, however, for a super cool place with high quality media facilities with good food then you'll enjoy your stay.

Thank you for your very kind words. They are very much appreciated and my team will be delighted to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. Although we have no roaring fire I do hope our hotel will still be cosy and comfortable for our guests over the winter months and also look out for all our Christmas decorations on a grand scale that will be going up at the end of the month and create a wonderful atmosphere during the festive period. I look forward to welcoming you back to Hotel La Tour. Kind regards, Jane Riley

Check in like airport was good except you then have to go to the desk and fill in a form for your car park slot!
Rooms really nice, similar to malmasonbirmingham in style

Corporate meal event but food was well above average for this type of event

Modern and funky. Good service from bar staff
Would stay there again

Enjoyed a mid week half term break with the family. The package included adjoining rooms, treats for the kids and a bottle of Moët bubble for my wonderful wife and myself. In addition there were tickets for the Think Science Museum included. Rooms were spotless clean, staff were very friendly and offered plenty of advice. We choose the Selfridges car park option that cost only £5.00 for the duration of the 3 days there. Breakfast was the best I have ever had in any hotel we have stayed in. We cannot wait to return.. Total cost for the 2 night was just over £300 but so worth it, considering the Museum tickets were £40 and all the treats in the room. Can't wait to return.
