My cousin and I stayed at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole for two nights over the Clothes Show weekend in December. We booked online through the Hilton website and received a substantial discount, so that starts us off very well!
We arrived late at night and were welcomed into the beautiful hotel reception with a smile. Our room was fantastic, on the top floor and really well presented. We ordered a meal from room service which was delivered promptly, hot and delicious, and the lovely Gurpreet who delivered it was really sweet.
Our room was cleaned and tidied while we were out, they even made our beds and folded our pyjamas as we'd left them in a mess! They also delivered a dental kit to our room when we realised we'd forgotten our toothpaste.The bathroom was very clean and we had fresh towels delivered. There were also shampoos, conditioners and body washes left in the bathroom for us to use.
The breakfasts were really good too. Not only is there a buffet featuring everything you could imagine, there's also an omelette and pancake station where you can have an omelette made to order, which I did, and it was really very good!
The location is perfect, just a couple of minutes walk from the NEC main entrance, and Pendigo Lake is right next door. There is also a gym with pool, steam room, sauna and spa, which we made full use of, and the spa treatments are well worth getting.
All the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful, they even let me park my car at the front of the hotel so we didn't have to walk so far with lots of bags. I would definitely recommend this hotel whether you are visiting the NEC or not. Fantastic stay!
