Hotel Review: Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Brindleyplace

Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Brindleyplace King Evolution Room

Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Brindleyplace is the best rated Hilton property in Birmingham. That may sound weird, but at the one hand, there is no “real” Hilton and on the other hand the hotel is indeed quite a good place to stay at.

Usually, I’m not really the guy to stay at a Hilton Garden Inn as  I really appreciate full service properties with a pool, 24 hours room service etc.

  • Classification: Four Stars
  • Room Category: King Evolution Room
  • Month of Stay: November

However, the Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Brindleyplace offered a great price of around 60 GBP for our weekend stay and thus was quickly booked. The hotel is located at Brindleyplace, a few minutes walk away from the immediate city center. However, the area is quite nice and offers nice options for dining.

The location is quite nice

Personally, I was very surprised by the beautiful lobby of the Garden Inn, which isn’t an exactly beautiful building. But once you are inside, the hotel feels really modern and neat. The whole check-in procedure was friendly and quick as well.

King Evolution Room at Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham

As there are no different room categories at Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Brindleyplace, we were assigned a King Evolution Room.

I already choose a room at the end of the corridor facing away from the street. This happened to be a good choice as the room was relatively quiet throughout the stay. As you’d expect of a Hilton Garden Inn, the room wasn’t especially spacious with approximately 15 square meters.

Yet, the interior was modern and comfortable with a good bed, a nice working desk with a proper office chair, a flat-screen television and a wardrobe. There was even a kettle with a choice of coffee and tea. The only minor complaint I got is that the room is a little dark due to the small window.

Bathroom of the King Evolution Room

The bathroom of the rooms at Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham is quite tiny as well. There’s a sink, a toilet and a walk-in shower.

The bathroom is very tiny

I’d say the whole set-up is alright, but there’s space for just one person at a time in the bathroom. The shower pressure was decent though.

Sadly, the bathroom wasn’t thoroughly cleaned as we spotted one or another hair in the shower. Other than that, there are the typical Peter Thomas Roth amenities.

Gym at Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham

The Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham also offers a gym, which may be used 24 hours a day. The gym is quite tiny as well, but there’s everything you need with cardio machines and free weights.

The atmopshere in the gym is decent as well. However, the gym already feels crowded with two or more people in it.

Breakfast at Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham

As a Hilton Honors Diamond member I was offered a welcome drink and complimentary breakfast.

Welcome Drink

The welcome drink (any wine or beer of your choice) was quite good, while the breakfast might have been the most positive surprise of this stay.

The breakfast spread at Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham is surprisingly good

 

I expected the spread to be somewhat limited, but the Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham pretty much had it all. Cold cuts, fruits, cereals, rolls, cheeses as well as hot items.

In addition, there’s a station, where you could order eggs of your choice. Coffee was self-service, but the machine produced quite decent cappuccino.

All in all, kudos to the Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham.

Bottom line Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham

Having stayed at dozens of Hiltons in the last years, I must admit: Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Brindleyplace is pretty much on the same level as most full service hotels. The rooms are modern and well equipped, but a little dark and with tiny bathrooms.

The service is very friendly throughout, the lobby is well designed and there’s even some complimentary cake and lemonade during the day. The breakfast is very good as well and Diamond members even receive a free welcome drink. Overall, a great stay, especially considering the low price. The Hilton Garden Inn is definitely worth recommending!
