The Birmingham Thistle Hotel looks to host yet more business events.

During the week saw one of the Connect WM team head over to the Birmingham Thistle Hotel which is positioned within the City Centre by the Children’s Hospital for a scheduled meeting with Tara Sanchez who is the new Sales Manager for the hotel.


As many people will know the road layout within a certain section within Birmingham City Centre has changed over recent years and it is within this area where the Birmingham Thistle Hotel is placed.


Many of you like us may be familiar with the ‘Royal Angus Hotel’ as being the name of a city centre location hotel, well the biggest shock for the oldies out there was that the Hotel ceased to be known as the Royal Angus some 15 years ago – how times fly…..!


During the meeting with Tara she provided a guided tour of the hotels conferencing facilities - showing the meeting rooms, the lounge areas and the restaurants and bars, they even have a patio balcony type area where BBQ type events can be held and a concierge desk to act as a mini booking in reception.


Parking for the hotel is by way of a NCP car park which is attached to the hotel through which also provides direct access to the second floor of the hotel, which is where a majority of the conferencing facilities are positioned - thus making it easy for attendees wishing to gain to gain easy and direct access to any business event being held there.


Tara highlighted during the conversation how some local people and visitors to the borough still associate the Birmingham Thistle Hotel’s name with that of the Strathallen Hotel which is a few miles away on the Hagley Road; the reason for this was that the Strathallen Hotel did indeed change its name to the Birmingham Thistle Hotel when ownership of it changed for a short space of time a few years back but then reverted back to its original name when ownership changed again.


Tara is ready and willing to give people a guided tour around the hotels facilities as she wishes to increase their share in the business exhibitions, business training and seminars field.
