Over the past five years Hilton Birmingham Metropole, at the NEC, has undergone a major £18m facelift and has finally showed off its new Single Deluxe Guestroom (which comprises 170 of the hotel’s 790 bedrooms) at a ceremony, 8 May, attended by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham.
Refurbishment of the NEC and Monarch Suite has now been completed and 33 meeting rooms have been turned into modern spaces that include all the latest audio visual technology.
Patrick Stapleton, the hotel’s General Manager says: “Over the past five years we have carried out some remarkable improvements to our facilities. The £18m transformation we have undergone and the commitment to invest even further will certainly ensure our product takes the lead as a specialist conferences and events venue in the UK”.
The Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Mike Leddy, said: “These types of achievements deserve to be celebrated. The Hilton Birmingham Metropole attracts important conference business to Birmingham and the Midlands with over 1,800 conferences and events every year and this is a very notable feat.”
Hilton Birmingham Metropole is the largest conference and accommodation venue in the UK outside London.
