... walk out the door.... (Cos') We're leaving on a jet plane, Six weeks before we're home again. You know when we come back we'll have a lot to say.... We could email you, we could text you too. We might even try to FaceTime you, But we'd rather travel far and go explore.... So kiss us and wave to us, Tell us not to make a fuss, Hug us twice and then we' say no more....

We finally got to the castle and as we got closer, we saw, and heard, a group of children which must have been at a birthday party charging the castle with their swords. We got to the castle which was probably the highest point in ...

After a couple of hours in town, we headed back home for the night. Stratford on Avon was a nice English town and would be a great place to stay if you wanted the English town feel that was still close enough to London to see the big city as well. Overall, not bad but not too terribly exciting.
11.34 from York, coppers everywhere, weather getting better by the hour. Train to brum delayed and onward train cancelled, turning into a long trip but weather now glorious. Brums rough as ever, Moor street very old worldly. Got on train eventually an hour late. B&B nice, excited to get started. Missing my superbly fit and awesome ...

We arrived in the upstairs room just as things were about to start. We sang Erie Canal, Some Ladies are Foolish, Watercress, and the Man who Calmed the Sea. The organiser took a photo of us, and thankfully someone offered us a lift back to Brindley Place. It was a memorable evening.

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel, Birmingham
We stayed at the hotel in early April and were very disappointed with the Reception Staff who were less than helpful. We had booked a twin room and were told on arrival that only a king room was available. We made a fuss and eventually were told that the king room could be converted to a twin. This was eventually done after a 45 minute wait during which, having asked, we were begrudgingly offered a free drink. Finally we were allowed to go to the room where we found that the beds were only about 9 inches apart.
A great hotel! Modern and fresh! We stayed in the hotel as part of a Mother's Day treat. We had booked to see Smaller at the Alexandra Theatre - and to our surprise the hotel is right next door to the theatre!! We stayed on the 18th floor where you get amazing views of the city! The only worrying thing was that the room creaks at night in high winds!!! I'm sure that it's perfectly safe though!! Oh and a bonus - we booked a business rate room and were given a free bottle of wine! Breakfast was superb - with a chef cooking fresh omelettes! I would highly recommend staying at the Radisson!
Loved the hotel
I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for 1 night. The room was very clean and comfortable with a huge bed. We received a complimentary bottle of wine which was a nice surprise. There was no rush up on the Sunday morning as breakfast was served till 12noon. The breakfast was splendid everything you could want, both hot and cold dishes were available. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
8 Out Of 10
Just returned from a weekend break shopping and had a fantastic time. Both myself and my partner were impressed with the hotel, it was well located for shopping and evening entertainment and we found the staff to be very friendly and attentive. We stayed on the 18th floor of the hotel which gave a good view of the city, however the windows were only equipped with net curtains allowing bright sunlight to shine in. We will be back.
The main problem at this hotel was service from start to finish.
I stayed at this hotel on Valentines night, my boyfriend booked the suite as a suprise!
This brand new city centre hotel is housed in the first 19 floors of a modern glass tower. Although not immediately surrounded by beautiful architecture (try 1960's tower blocks and ugly concrete shops), once inside you'd be hard pressed to find a more contemporary space.
Great for leisure, poor for business, lots of bugs to workout
Stayed for 3 days.
Had 3 different rooms (Room #1, wrong bed config, Room #2, TV didn't work). All three rooms had different decor.
- Great looking location
- Nice flat screen TV
- Free internet
- Small fitness centre (2 treadmills, 2 bikes, 2 elipticals, that's all)
- Terrible service (missed one wake-up call, called back twice to clarify room service order, didn't tidy room fully - wrappers still on the table)
- Not very supportive business functions (faxed a document, never went through and they didn't mention, small desks to work from)
My take is that this hotel will age quickly, and is great if you want to party hard, but if you're here for business, go to the Hyatt, hands down
I stayed at this hotel for one night with my boyfriend for our anniversary. The rooms were of a good size with a bright and modern feel. We stayed on the 7th floor and had an excellent view of the city. The reception staff were very helpful and polite. The hotel is situated wthin easy walking distance of the Bullring and the Arcadian centre. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone going into the city for a shopping weekend or a night out as the hotel is in an excellent position.
