Although we only live in Solihull we thought it would be nice to stay in the City for New Year's Eve so booked a 'Business Class' room at the Radisson Blue.
We checked in as early as we were meeting a group of friends and family at Cafe Rouge in Brindley Place for a meal before heading back to the hotel for the celebrations. The staff at reception were friendly and very helpful. My partner noticed a special offer about spray tans which she fancied, so this was all arranged and she was very happy with the result (and price!).
We stayed just under half way up so the view wasn't quite what we would have liked (then again we did leave it late to book so would imagine the higher rooms were pre-allocated). We did check out another room as family were also staying at the Radisson that night so we went to their room for a glass of champagne - and their view was much better!
At midnight we were looking out across the city watching the hundreds of fireworks, and was just a lovely evening.
The room itself was huge, very spacious and we had robes and slippers as part of our package. Bed was comfortable and room was very clean. Would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to stay in Birmingham, it is also very close to the train station, Bullring, Broad Street, etc.
