Holiday Inn Express, NEC
The hotel is located close to Birmingham Airport and NEC with Birmingham International train station a short taxi journey away. The rooms are spacious and clean whilst the staff are very helpful.
I had a great two night stay at the hotel. It was easy to get to and from Birmingham town centre on Saturday. The Little Owl pub next door to the hotel was a great place to start the weekend.

Bed was uncomfortable and because there was 3 of us, space was tight.

Value for your Money
Free Breakfast, Excellent Staff, and Free Internet
For the purpose of visiting Birmingham for a trade expo, Holiday Inn NEC is the perfect choice! You get extreme value for your money with the free breakfast and free internet (the other hotels in the area didn't offer this). Although the internet in my room was crawling, the internet at the lobby and restaurant area was very fast and I ended up spending most of my evenings catching up on work there. The staff are magnificent as they attend to your every need with a smile (kudos especially to James at the bar who just the nicest, most attentive, and friendliest person). I highly recommend this hotel. The food at the Holiday Inn is not the best, but there is an excellent restaurant called The Little Owl just next door.

Nice Pleasant Hotel
Value for money, Location to Airport/Train station, Big Room Size
Stay was pleasant. Hotel is disabled & pet friendly. Nice big, comfy room, good breakfast and very helpful staff. Only negative is the airport shuttle service doesn't run all day long - between 7.30am-10.30am and 4pm-8pm only, at a price of £2. Staff however will helpfully call you a cab, price between £5-£7. I would stay again and would recommend to anyone with special needs or travelling with pets, and looking for a base close to the airport/train station or NEC & LG Arena.
