Although I live relatively close to Birmingham and am there all the time, if I go for a night out then I can’t get home unless I leave before the last train which is at 23:15, which is pretty annoying, especially as I used to be just a 10 minute Uber ride away from the city centre! Luckily, Birmingham has a great selection of hotels in and around the city centre so there’s plenty of choice when I need to pick one to stay in.

Back in December, Rachel came down to Birmingham to see me and we went to the Clothes Show Live and then wanted to spend the evening wandering around the Frankfurt Christmas Market which meant that the best option was to stay in a hotel. We were lucky enough to get a room at one of Birmingham’s newest hotels based at the Mailbox, AC Hotel which is a part of the Marriott group. View Post
