Looking for a stylish Valentine's treat? Book the Rotunda for Feb 14, 15 or 16 and there will be a free bottle of champagne chilling in your apartment on arrival and rose petals on the bed.
Staying Cool's serviced apartments in Birmingham at Rotunda are a two-minute walk to New Street Station and only an eight minute train journey to the NEC (10 trains per hour).
Rotunda is a stone's throw from Selfridges and hundreds of other shops, restaurants and bars. In short, it's a far livelier place to stay than near the airport/NEC!
We look after many exhibitors and visitors to trade fairs at the NEC.
NEC VIP includes:
Train tickets to and from the NEC (we'll give you your tickets at check-in to save you time queuing at the station)
Car parking at the nearby Bullring if you need it too
Use of a gym just 200m away
As well as all the other inclusive extras such as free Wi-Fi, complimentary Dorset cereals and gym membership of course.
We have a very special Valentine's package available in Birmingham- the perfect treat if you and your loved one love classical music.

The champagne and tickets are complimentary, but this offer is strictly limited to the first five bookings - please book as soon as possible quoting the code Loveclassical.
Book online or call us on 0121 285 1290.
The City of Birmimgham Symphony Orchestra is running a January sale giving 25% off tickets. Book by January 27th.
If you love classical musical then watch this space. We sponsor the wonderful Orchestra of the Swan and we'll be putting details of a very special Valentine's offer involving the orchestra online in the next day or so.
We enjoyed The Guardian's new (and cheeky) Quick City Guide to Birmingham, especially as it recommends Staying Cool at the Rotunda as the place to stay in the city:
"Refurbished and renovated by Urban Splash, it towers over the main shopping streets of the city and is a fantastically central place to stay."
We were delighted that our Mini apartments at the Rotunda were selected for Easy Living magazine's feature '100 Hot Hotels under £100'.
Easy Living's February 2013 issue said: "This compact but super-cool studio space at the top of Birmingham's towering Rotunda has floor-to-ceiling windows, impressive city skyline views and slick Swinging-Sixties deco, with all the latest mod cons, including an Apple entertainment system."
The glamour! Amelia Lily recorded the video for the acoustic version of her hit song Shut Up (And Give Me Whatever You Got) in one of our Rotunda penthouses. It's looking rather gorgeous even if we say so ourselves.
