Have stayed at other hotels in the area for similar prices that are way better! Carpet was so worn that you could see parts without designs..super uncomfortable beds, bathroom dirty. The rooms look NOTHING like the photos on their site. Will never book again. Customer service was horrible as well and staff looked miserable. Check in took over a half hour as only one li
I was attending a conference at the ICC and found the Copthorne a great value. I opted for a superior room that came with breakfast and free internet. Very comfortable room, lovely staff, and clean, updated hotel. My room was a bit noisy with the traffic noise, but with the windows closed not too bad. One caution: no air conditioning, so would avoid in the summer.
We stayed here for 5 nights to attend our friends' wedding in a nearby town. We chose it for it's location in the heart of everything in the city centre of Birmingham. The price was a good value for an older but very clean hotel. The room was a good size and the beds & bedding were comfortable. Some other reviewers have felt it to be run down, but that seems a harsh description. I did not feel that to be accurate. It was quiet because the road doesn't run right next to the hotel. The food at the Asian restaurant in the hotel was very good. We ate there twice even though there are lots of restaurants in Brindley Place about a 10 minute walk away. On the street running parallel to Brindley there are several inexpensive pubs serving the Wetherspoon food franchise fare at very inexpensive prices. We dined at 2 of those and enjoyed the food and beer. Being there during the Christmas Market season was a wonderful bonus. The market was literally right outside the door of the hotel. The Symphony Hall & Biirmingham Reperatory Theatre were a 1/2 block away. New Street and Moor Street rail stations were a 15 minute walk, as were several shopping centres such as the Bull Ring. One improvement I would recommend is for the front office manager: Your attitude is evident to your guests. You cannot turn it on/off and think they won't notice. Your employees were wonderfully friendly in spite of your example. Being 90% sour and 10% friendly almost ruined my stay at the Copthorne. That was especially so when I was trapped in your malfunctioning elevator watching my watch for 50 minutes. You told my husband that I was exaggerating about the amount of time I was stuck there and you never apologized to me for my inconvenience.
A nice city hotel. Very comfortable bed, very hot shower, typical English sink (two separate spigots), no fan or air movement mechanism other than to open the window, which allowed the sounds of the thruway passing right below to come into the room (motorcycles, sirens, etc.). Wireless internet at no charge only available in the lobby, otherwise a standard charge for in-room connection (per day). Central location can't be beat...1/4 mile away from Brindleyplace, canals, symphony hall, NIA (to the West), a shopping passage away from Victoria Square and Birmingham museum to the east. Pub around the corner opens at 7 for a good breakfast.
I was in Birmingham with a friend for the International Double Reed Society Conference that was held in some of the public rooms of the Copthorne Hotel, the Birmingham Conservatoire, and surrounding music halls in the area. The only good thing that I could say about the hotel is the convenience to the conference. The hotel was advertised as being air conditioned. The public rooms might be, but the guest rooms are not. I chose the hotel because of the air conditioning because of my allergies which make it necessary to avoid outside pollens and polutants. Also, my friend has a heart condition that makes it difficult to be in un air conditioned conditions. My bathroom was extremely moldy which is bad when you have an allergy to most molds. Also, the key card for my room didn't work well. I had it replaced 3 times with the same results. I would try up to 20 times to get in before I would give up and go down stairs for help. There also waso not soft drink machine or ice machine available. The front desk staff was always friendly and good at answering questions, but that doesn't make up for being misled by their write=up of the amenities of their hotel.
Great location, easy to get to everything in the city center. The room is quite nice for the price, the bed is comfortable and the service is good. My small complaint is that the room was not air conditioned and could be stuffy. I also did not like the in-room "internet via tv" which I found very difficult to use and did not have much capability.
