Deux Messieurs Review 03 September 2012

We were delighted to be reviewed by gentleman-bloggers Deux Messieurs.

Here's an excerpt: "Time to unwind. The living area is a stylish mix of retro and modern; contemporary furniture and artwork have been chosen to reflect the Rotunda's 1960s heritage (I particularly covet the Tom Dixon lampshades). "

Deux Messieurs


"We also play around with the very 21st century gadgetry including Apple TV and iPod dock, but the only entertainment we really need is that view! We uncork a bottle of wine and watch the city buzz away far below."

New Wedding Night Package20 August 2012

We' ve launched a new wedding night package at the Rotunda in Birmingham. 

The package offers accommodation at the top of the iconic grade-II listed skyscraper with sleek interiors, the privacy and space to relax after a hectic day, wonderful nightscapes and lots of complimentary extras.

On arrival in your 5* apartment, you will find a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge. Dried rose buds will be scattered on the king-size, pocket sprung Ultimate bed. And, if you feel ravenous later, there will be a Midnight Munchies pack on hand containing delicious snacks.

 Next morning, an extended 1pm check time out can be made the most of by enjoying a leisurely breakfast. Everything required to make either a Full English breakfast or smoked salmon bagels will be provided.

Our light-filled apartments are regularly used for fashion shoots and they make a wonderful backdrop for wedding photos. Bridal make up and grooming services can be enjoyed in the apartments courtesy of Urban Retreat at Home.

 Staying Cool's wedding night package costs £475 per night for a Roadster penthouse and £250 for a one-bed Clubman apartment. The two-bedroom penthouses are perfect for those who want to stay the night before the wedding with family members or bridesmaids, or to have their children with them on the night of the wedding.

Elle Reviews Rotunda10 August 2012

Elle online gave Staying Cool at the Rotunda a rave review this month. Elle said: 

City centre stays don't come much cooler than Staying Cool Birmingham. At the top of the city's iconic Rotunda building, the 26 serviced crashpads are done out in a minimal, Space Odyssey style in keeping with the listed 60s setting, and furnished with bright pink Lou Rota Polymorph chairs, Tom Dixon felt lamps, Naughtone sofas in dark grey and retro photos of models by Nick Smith. "Hotels?" they seem to say, "So passé"
