The 319-bedroom Hyatt Regency Birmingham has unveiled a new look which it hopes will help position itself as one of the leading conference venues in the country.
All the bedrooms and public areas of the hotel have been overhauled during the £6m refurbishment, including eight meeting and conference rooms, the Symphony ballroom, and reception, alongside the creation of a new tavern-style bistro pub, the Gentleman & Scholar.
The hotel now hopes to build on such events as exclusive use of the property by the Conservative party during its annual conference last month, held at the nearby ICC.
Mario Flanagan, general manager at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham, said: "These significant updates will enable us to ensure that our guests and delegates enjoy the very best meetings and event facilities in one of the UK's most popular events destinations.
