165 million cups of tea are drunk in the UK every
day. Here at Staying Cool we appreciate the joy of a
perfect cup of tea. When you check in with us you'll find a range
of quality British teas in your kitchen. And you'll also find fresh
milk in the fridge on arrival rather than those horrible little UHT
We're proud supporters of Orchestra of the Swan. If you become a Friend of theirs you'll be able to buy tickets for a rather special event at Staying Cool at the Rotunda in May and enjoy many other benefits.
A Room with a View on May 8th will be held in one of our Rotunda penthouses and will feature a recital with canapes and Pimms.
We saw Alan Bennett's new play 'People' recently at the National Theatre and we're delighted to see that Mac Arts are screening it live on Thursday, March 21st.
If you are staying with us at the Rotunda that evening we'd highly recommended it!
Monarch's flights between Birmingham and Barcelona go daily from May. Potential for a very cool Staying Cool mini-tour!
Start out at the Rotunda, hop on a train (it takes
as little as nine minutes to go from very nearby New
Street Station to Birmingham International) and then stay
with us at 39
Steps in Barcelona. Unbeatable for style.
This Sunday (March 17th) sees Birmingham's annual St Patrick's Day Parade. And, in honour of the occasion, the amazing Selfridges building will turn green once more.
Last year saw record crowds watching the main parade with 85,000 people lining the streets to get a glimpse of the procession of floats, musicians, and dancers.
