“Very nice hotel”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

I had wanted to try this hotel for a while and wasn't disappointed. The location was good and discounted parking at the Selfridges car park was useful at just £5. I liked the room and heard minimal street noise and noise from other rooms. The bar was good with reasonably priced drinks and at least the music was subtle compare to the other places I had visited in Birmingham during the evening - it made a nice change not to have to shout to make myself heard.(I'm probably getting old!)

Check out was easy using the machines and the person who came over to help seemed genuinely interested in hearing about any issues.

I agree with others that the overhead shower was quite weak. Although it was really nice to have full sized bath towels in a hotel - it isn't often you get this, which was good in my mind.

A also I liked the free and easy to use wifi, it does make a difference.

Would recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for one night and booked through secret escapes. The hotel was lovely with great amenities. Lovely and friendly staff who were extremely helpful. Hotel was in the perfect location for shopping in the bullring. Would definitely return.

i have stayed at the hotel on a few occasions before and have only had praise for this hotel and staff. We went for a chilled relaxing time which we had to a point, the hotel had a large wedding party on that Saturday and had music going on this late evening. The hotel did leave a note to advise this and that they had done their best to keep us far away from the noise. However when we went to bed for the evening the room we had was above the party area and as it was a warm night the party room doors were open most of the night and we could here the music till the end. Although this did not ruin our weekend it was not the relaxing one we wanted and felt the hotel could have done a little more, However i would not put anyone off coming to this hotel and would come back again but would check what is on first

stayed at La tour for a business dealer conference. The bedroom design was very modern with lots of techy gadgets on offer like wireless sounds system and touch screen heater controls. the staff was very helpful and friendly. The whole hotel has a very modern feel. The bar area is stylish and very well stocked. My only downside was the evening meal menu didn't have the same modern feel to the hotel, but we did eat as a large group for the conference so the menu might have been adapted to cater for a large group.

I absolutely loved staying here. Very modern, extremely clean, powerful showers, comfortable beds. The staff were very helpful to cater to our needs. Although it is right in the centre of Birmingham there are plenty of parking options including £5 parking for the entirety of your stay if you validate your ticket at the hotel when you park at Selfridges. It is only a 5min walk from the Bullring and 10mins away from new street station too so ideally located. There is virtually no difference between the city and executive room with the only difference being you get a small sofa in the executive. The choice of breakfast was first class and the bar was open for 24 hours. Overall a fantastic stay and highly recommended!

Room Tip: City rooms are no different to executive so don't pay the extra cost.

From the moment I walked in, the staff was warm, professional and welcoming. The standard was maintained throughout my stay. The hotel has a very modern looking interior, technology friendly and clean. It is a five minute walk away from Selfridges, Moore Street train station and M & S.

My favourite feature of the hotel, was the hotel room speakers - Bluetooth connected.

Hotel La Tour, staff members you have set the bar, thank you once again for a wonderful stay.

We stayed here after a concert at the LG Arena and went shopping the next day. The hotel is spotless, modern and rooms was really great. Plus we booked through Secret Escapes so got an exec room and breakfast for £90.
Rooms were fair size, staff were very helpful, dinner in the restaurant was lovely - maybe a bit pricey. Very reasonable parking at Selfridges, only £5 for 24 hours+

The only thing I would say is the shower pressure was weak and there are no mini bars in the room so when you're gasping for a bottle of water in the middle of the night you're out of luck!
