Once the industrial heart of Britain, Birmingham has blossomed into a true metropolitan city with bustling pedestrian friendly streets, a renowned cultural arts scene, and shopping districts that rival London, and with several Birmingham hotels to choose from, Holiday Inn® Hotels and Resorts makes it easy to experience it all.
Kick off your Birmingham hotel stay with a visit to Brindleyplace, where you'll find the National Sea Life Center, IKON Art Gallery and a variety of shops, restaurants and bars up and down Broad St. There are street performers and musicians in Brindleyplace's open-air plazas, and the pathways along Birmingham's famous canals beckon visitors to enjoy a stroll. Fashionistas will want to stop by the Bull Ring, a large shopping complex that features popular UK department stores, Selfridges and Debenhams.
Prefer fine arts to fashion? There are numerous theatres and concert venues in the area too. Catch a West End play at the Alexandra or a classical concert at the Birmingham Symphony Hall.
If you're traveling with the whole family in tow, you'll find our hotels in Birmingham are located near many family friendly attractions.

Have used this Holiday Inn for past 3 years and find it the best for visits to the Stafford area and having used other accommodation can easily say its the one which I will continue to use in future.[Less]

By Mrs _P
The friendliness of the staff made my stay in this hotel notable. Every staff member from reception to room staff were polite and cheery.
Hotel clean and confortable.
Did not use the leisure[More] facilities.
Breakfast as expected with good options
I would reccommend that if booking at Holiday Inn telephone the hotel directly as central reservations is very call center'ish' and the person I spoke to lacked knowledge and was rather unhelpful in answering my questions, in the end he was quite rude asking did I want to book or not. If I was not attending a wedding at the hotel I would most likely gone elsewhere. However calling the Hotel directly my questions were answered efficiently and politely and by booking was made without issue.
The only other downside was unable to buy a nightcap at the bar as told it was closed at 1am.[Less]
Excellent for an airport hotel
The brand has an image to live up to but that must be very difficult to maintain in a busy airport hotel with its throughput of short stay guests. That this hotel did so (for a two night stay so not[More] 'flash in the pan') shows just how hard the staff work at it.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The quality of the food in the lounge leaves you wondering why they need a restaurant.
The only possible, really minor niggle is that the exterior of the building looks dated. Arriving on a dull, cloudy day in the middle of a rain storm did not show it off to its best advantage. Having said that, it was the 'old' main airport building and reflects the architecture of its time and the building (and grounds) were clean and well maintained. In no way did this detract from the quality of the stay.[Less]
