Did you know that Staying Cool has an advisory board? It's full of very talented people - such as James Lohan, who founded boutique travel brand Mr & Mrs Smith. Award-winning architect Glenn Howells is our newest member. We're particularly thrilled about this because Glenn and Urban Splash made the Rotunda what it is today.
Glenn's architectural practice, GHA, has just won a prestigious RIBA Award for Architecural Excellence for its work on Kevin McLeod's sustainable Triangle housing project.
We were honoured to play host to the Chefs' Reception for the Birmingham Food Fest on Monday evening in one of our Rotunda penthouses.
The Food Fest is going extremely well. Chris, who won our competition with Opus, attended over the weekend and described it as "a massive success."

"I liked the fact that all the food products were fairtrade/organic (excellent!). The flat was lovely, wish I had somewhere like that in London.." Kate Cater, Life & Style Editor, The Guardian
"There are no bellhops nor a gym...instead you get a Mac Mini, free Wi-Fi, an espresso machine and a juicer (oranges included)." The New York Times
""..the Rotunda is superbly located bang in the city centre with New Street and the famous Christmas market less than 20ft from our door – perfect for dropping off those heavy shopping bags."" North Devon Journal
