We have just spent a long weekend at this great hotel in Birmingham. It is located centrally close to the Bullring (and other shopping centres), New St. Station and other great attractions, such as Birmingham Cathedral. It is a modern hotel which will appeal not only to those individuals who like hotels but to those who also like the flexibility of an apartment style break. Because we tend to stay in hotels we made minimal use of the kitchen facility as we had budgeted for eating out.
The hotel reception is located on the second floor and the staff were very efficient and polite. Because we are IHG gold members we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite on the 9th floor - room 911!!! This room was very quiet, comfortable and had a great view towards the Bullring. The sitting area had a comfy bed settee and a single chair, HD television, working space and a small kitchenette.
In the kitchen there was a grill/microwave, fridge, 2 ring hob, dishwasher and many knives, dishes and utensils. All very useful for keeping costs down.
In the bedroom there was a large queen bed, a well sized wardrobe, iron/ironing board and a wall mounted television.
Just off the bedroom there was a small but perfectly formed bathroom. There was a bath/shower combo and a lovely modern basin area.
On weekend you have to arrange for your suite to be cleaned but you could request clean towels etc for your room. Rooms are cleaned daily during the week.
The breakfast area was located on the second floor to the left of reception and serves a very good breakfast with a mix of hot and cold food. There are two hot food combinations which are served on alternate days namely - bacon, omelette and beans and sausage, scrambled eggs and beans. Breads, baguettes, bagels, croissants and danish pastries are all nice. In addition, there is cheese, ham, yogurt, fresh fruits and cereals. Milk, fresh fruit juices and water is stored in fridges. There is also a great coffee machine. In fact the tea/coffee facility is available free of charge all day, and I think this is a great touch! On this floor there is a gym and a laundry room which we did not use on this occasion.
Opposite reception there is a small pantry which sticks essentials which you may want to purchase during your stay.
We would most definitely stay in this hotel again. Thank you very much!
