I visited the Plaza today for a us Ines meeting and found it an excellent venue. Good location and convenient for the airport and trains. The meeting room itself was a little on the cool side it roomy and well-equipped. Refreshments and Lunch were very good. A good day. Thank you.

Update review for this hotel. I actually quite like the CP at the NEC, but it's got worse not better since I stayed here last and honestly, it's all down to management. Little things but they add up. Mostly, it's housekeeping. Pleasantly surprised on the first day to see we now have face flannels/wash cloths in the bathrooms. This is...

I was in Birmingham for a 2 day work conference at the Hilton NEC, and since this was already full booked (presumably by the conference attendees who got there first) we were booked into this Crown Plaza across the pond. It is around a 10 minute walk from the large NEC sign, or a 20 minute walk if you like,...

Great hotel, not sickly posh (if that makes sense). The room was perfect and the service was great. Just after we checked in, we were awarded a Free Parking prize which was a nice surprise. Breakfast facilities were amazing but very pricey.

We spent the weekend at the NEC for the classic car show. The hotel was literally a 5 minute walk from the NEC. Also close by was a large complex of shops and restaurants.
