Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Luxurious, Tasteful, Indulgent, Inspiring. All things Grand.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
The Grand Staircase is a gorgeous and pivotal location for your couple and guest photos. Lovingly restored with rich detail, our Grand Staircase is the centrepiece of the hotel, which both you, your guests and photographer, will love. Picture this, an overhead shot of our spiralling Grand Staircase, you both lovingly hand in hand as you descend. Elegance could never look so easy.
What’s your favourite canapé?
Tough choice! Must say the Pork Belly & Mushroom arancini canapés go down a treat.
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
My favourite midnight snack, or should I say Charcuterie spread, is of Cheeses', savoury crackers and chutney dips. For a treat away from home, I like to order our Cheese and Charcuterie Board from our Room Service menu, accompanying with Crispy Sourdough, Grapes and Pickles. Available all day for overnight guests, because why should treats be saved until midnight?
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Our Grand Hotel is full of period character with original Victorian architecture and marble detailing. Beautifully restored with complimenting Arts from the history that roamed our walls since 1879. Interior design featured throughout the hotel and in every direction. There is no other Grand Hotel Birmingham.
