For those unfamiliar with Birmingham or unwilling to chance the central roads, the Holiday Inn Express is a fabulous choice - just a turning off Queensway immediately adjacent to two multi storey car
parks. Exiting to Queensway to head in either direction is just as easy.
The hotel itself is modern, clean and rather better than other Express brand hotels - in fact it is rather nicer than some of the older main brand Holiday Inns. Being a tower block with meeting rooms on floor 1, noise is minimised in the bedrooms.
It is a short walk to Snow Hill and the Cathedral area for quality night life and the area itself is very safe.
The only thing to be aware of from my stay is that weekday breakfast ends at 9:30, not 10:00 - leisure travellers like myself on this occasion may find this a surprise! [Less]
