Hamptons By Hilton Birmingham


Last week I was in Birmingham for the Arbonne Consultants UK conference. For the weekend me and my team decided to stay in the Hamptons by Hilton on Broad Street. This was the second time I was staying in a Hilton this year (not bad for a recent graduate) after having stayed in the Dunblane Hydro earlier this year for the #rediscoverhilton campaign, and this stay was also just as lovely.

The location was really good for us as it was just over a 5 minutes from The ICC where the conference was taking part. It was also a ten minute walk from New Street Station though I do tend to walk really quickly! The route was simple enough to walk, though the station itself was quite big and I did walk out two exits before I finally got the correct one!

The Hotel has a really simple but lovely decor. It felt quite businessesy though some of the visitors did seems as though they were visiting for something other than business reasons. One of the other consultants informed me that there was a hen party in the room opposite her haha! So take that memo as you will! The hotel is also situated on a street with more clubs and bars then there may possibly be in the whole of Scotland (okay I am exaggerating, but it was the Suchiehall of Birmingham it seemed). 




The room I stayed in a had a big double bed and a double sofa bed which had been made up before our arrival. It also came with a desk, a view of a parking lot (hah!) and an en-suite with a shower, towels and some toiletries included. The only 'flaws' I seen with the room was the shower didn't have a full door so the floor got wet and the wardrobe door doubled up as bathroom door - it was a slide door that sat in front of the wardrobe but was pulled along to cover up the bathroom when needed (if that makes sense).

The room also had unlimited wifi included, which wasn't a big faff to get on to. We all know this is the most important part. ;)




The breakfast (because we obviously has to discuss food) was brilliant. A help yourself unlimited with hot and continental foods. I was hungover the first morning (and was still queezy from the journey) so kept to cereal and fruit, but the next morning I helped myself to beans on toast, a bowl of coco pops, fruit, yoghurt and croissants. Full I was!

We booked somewhat far in advanced so it was £40 something pound each, but would have been cheaper if all beds had been full (we booked three rooms) and would have been even cheaper if we were sharing beds. but we did book this quite far in advanced so made use of 'book now' prices!

The reception area also had a bar but it wasn't me paying so I can't comment on prices, haha. But they did run out of vodka and gin, so we were waiting a bit ;)

Overall, I'd recommend it if you have a few extra bob but there was a travel lodge on the same street if you wish something simpler but still wanted to be right in the heart of Birmingham. 

Lots of B-ham love!
