To add to the overall transformation of the hotel, the public areas and lobby have been fully renovated and the bar and restaurant are sporting a sleek new look. Meanwhile, the hotel’s fitness suite has also been expanded, with new Matrix equipment throughout.

The restaurant has had more than just a new look though, with Collage, an exciting new British brasserie with a twist, now open. Collage offers an array of delicious British dishes, all prepared with prime ingredients, whilst the Chef expertly combines traditional flavors with modern cooking methods. From sumptuous steaks and smoked haddock kedgeree to a classic British cheeseboard; in the world of Collage, the theatre of service and unforgettable dishes are the order of the day.

Renowned as one of Birmingham’s strongest destinations for Meetings and Events, the Radisson Blu’s refurbishment has also seen upgrades to the 10 meeting rooms. As well as a décor refresh, new technology has been installed in every room to enhance the meeting experience offered by the hotel.

Larger meeting rooms and spaces offer multiple screens on the walls and presentations can run simultaneously around the room. The speaker systems and digital signage of each meeting room has also been upgraded, creating a truly modern meeting environment for guests.
