The property is right at the Birmingham airport - short walk from the car rental return and a shorter walk to the departure hall. Check-in was painless with zero wait time (unlike the Ibis at Schipol - waited over 30 minutes the last time I was there). The young lady doing the check-in was very friendly and informative. She made us feel unrushed and welcome, and provide great directions on how to get to a close by gas station before I turned in the rental.
Our room was modern and clean, and big enough (just) for the two of us for the one night. Interestingly, they have a double window system with about 1 foot dead space for sound deadening. I never heard any outside noise at night. There are very limited choices on TV, but I didn't stay there to watch television.
The included breakfast was good quality although very predictable. The breakfast service was very quick - probably use to dealing with business travelers who want to get in/get out as quickly as possible.
I had opted for the non-refundable, advance room purchase with full breakfast through a web service. In all, I have to give high marks in every area. This time I was traveling for pleasure, but I am already planning on staying here my next business trip.
