Due to connection problems at Birmingham airport (not all destinations are served during the weekend) i had to stay over for a day in Birmingham. I choose the Marriott as i love the spacious rooms. I wasn't disappointed. Early Check-in was available and so was late check-out, all handled efficiently. Very nice staff.
As expected the room was spacious and very comfortable, TV, Free-Wifi, and Minibar with complimentary water (all else you can buy at a supermarket next door). Didn't use the spa nor the restaurant /bar as the latter didn't look too inviting and not clear if they served lunch.
The location was pretty okay, it's a half hour walk towards the city center which can be nice if there's no rain. But there a cab stand next door that brings you were you need to go.
Resumé: will certainly consider the Marriott again when in Birmingam next.More
