"Birmingham is constantly evolving, a metropolis on the up and up," according to Condé Nast Traveller. Whether you fancy a shopping splurge at Selfridges, a gourmet weekend away or a cultural hit, the 4-star Hotel La Tour is a great base from which to explore this vibrant city.
The Hippodrome, where you can see comedy, family shows, pantomimes or concerts, is less than 15 minutes' walk from the hotel.
The Bullring shopping centre -- home to over 160 restaurants and stores, including Selfridges -- is a 10-minute walk away, while Custard Factory, Birmingham's creative quarter with independent shopping, is less than 15 minutes' walk away.
The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery -- famous for Pre-Raphaelite art and for the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found -- is around 15 minutes' walk from the hotel. Those looking for a chocolate fix should head to Cadbury World, around 10 minutes' drive away.
The hotel has a bar with live music over the weekend, and a gym that is open 24 hours a day for guests.
"Relaxed brasserie-style dining" (The Daily Telegraph) is on offer in Mr White's English Chophouse. The restaurant features a menu developed by renowned chef Marco Pierre White, and specialises in fresh, high-quality meat dishes and combines English classics with a French flair.
Executive Rooms are larger than City Rooms and feature floor-to-ceiling windows. Wi-Fi is free.
