Travelled from Edinburgh to Warwick. Visited Warwick Castle and Ann Hathaways birthplace. Ann Hathaway was the wife of William Shakespeare. She was 10 years older than him. Stayed at the Hilton hotel and had our farewell dinner. I ended up with laringytis and ...
... housed and shops. Much has been made of the fact that William Shakespeare was born, married and died here. Ron and I took a pleasant walk along lanes and past quaint cottages to Anne Hathaway's thatched cottage and garden - Anne was Shakespeare's wife and the Hathaway's lived in the cottage for 13 generations. A very well preserved and maintained building with great examples of 14th and 15th century furniture, including the bed Anne slept in when she lived ...
... br> Friday had its ups and downs...I started out the day by getting off the tube, face planting it, and swelling up my knee (on the plus side, about 500 British men came to my rescue with an "are you alright, love?") After that potential disaster, I went to Leicester Square and stood outside Capital Radio for a few hours in hopes of getting to meet Demi Lovato. She had tweeted the night before that she would be there and wanted to "hang out" with ...

Tori was AMAZING as usual. Just her and her pianos. I had a really emotional moment in one of the songs, the way she performed it was just breathtaking.
That was the quick jaunt to Birmingham. Seeing as it is so close, it might be a good place to go to other concerts as well when they come up.

So I made a huge cup of tea and found some snacks and sat at the table looking out at the small pond and garden being showered with the gentle rain drops and just thought about what ever came to mind. I thought for a long time about all the things Leandra and I experienced throughout our trip and how lucky we are ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Brindleyplace
Great value for money!!!!!!!!
Overall this hotel was of a very high standard. The room we had was very spacious, clean and modern. The staff were friendly and the location (5mins from Broad Street) was excellent. The price I managed to get was an amazing price of £37.50 per person for a weekend night. I would certainly stay here again.
Rooms spoiled an otherwise good hotel
The staff here are very friendly and attentive, breakfasts are good too however the cleanliness of the rooms left a bit to be desired, the bedding was stained and spill marks on furniture had not been cleaned.
We stayed here the Sunday of the second bank holiday weekend (2004). The hotel is very nice and if you are not a fan of chintzy, traditional hotels this is the place to stay. It has very modern fittings and decoration and the shower / bathroom was great, also nice touches like a CD player and funky tolietries etc. The room we stayed in was not enormous but I would rather sacrifice space and have such nice furnishings and fittings. IT had effective aircon (which was nice as it was dead hot).
Early bleeping rise
The hotel facilities, location etc are great. But I have stayed twice and on both occasions have been woken by a little road sweeper scurrying about at the front of the hotel reception. Every time it reverses, which is a lot, a warning reversing bleeper goes off. At 5am this is most annoying. Happening once I shug it off, twice and I stay somewhere else - (City IBIS if you want to know - not as pleasant but full night sleep and cheaper). I know this isn't the fault of the hotel, but I need my beauty sleep and as I found there are other choices.
Also 50GBP quoted is way cheaper than I have actually had pay even with company discount. 1st time £79, second time £87 (not inc drinks, telephone etc)
A bit of a bargain
Very good indeed considering the price. But do be aware that rooms don't necessarily have a bath. It didn't bother me, but if you are desperate for a soak then you might want to reconsider. The location is very good, the service in the bar and restaurant were excellent and the room was very nice. No complaints at all - we would use it again with no problems.
Best value for money in Birmingham
This places offers the best value for money in Birmingham. For £60 per weekend night you get a modern, spacious, soundproofed bedroom with air-conditioning, a cd player, a powerful shower and a full English Breakfast in the morning. The public areas are impressive with an excellent bar and terrace. The staff are cheerful and do all they can to help you. Considering the room only rate at the grotty Premierlodge next door is £56 I really have no idea why anyone would stay anywhere else in Birmingham. Highly recommended!
Have just returned from a weekend spent at this great hotel in Birmingham. We arrived in Birmingham early on the Saturday, (09:30), and we were allowed to check in straight away.
Every Business Trip to Birmingham our company uses City Inn
We have used this hotel for every business trip since we found them 2 years ago. (approx 10 visits)The only complaint is we could not stay longer!

Good hotel, Great location.
Stayed here one night to see Miss Saigon. Staff very nice and the room was ready on arrival early pm. The room was lovely and cleanliness was excellent. Did not eat here but the restaurant looked as good as the rest of the hotel. Parked the car in the award winning multi story next door without any problems and its location in the newly developed Bridley Place could not be better.
I stayed at the City Inn on 26-07-03 for my Anniversary. I asked for a double room but instead was given 2 single beds. I asked for a newspaper which was never delivered even when I asked a member of staff to get one. As I was sleeping in my room a lady entered the room with her swipe card and asked me why I was still in the room (she didnt know I had booked for 2 nights), when I complained to reception they said they would get back to me and I was confirmed for two nights but I never heard from them again. Avoid this hotel and try one of the other hotels Birmingham has to offer. Room service was slow and the incorrect order was given.
