Staybridge Suites, NEC Birmingham

The practice has received approval for a new IHG Staybridge Suites operation adjacent to the existing 179 bedroom Express by Holiday Inn hotel at the NEC. The fully air conditioned building, designed by the practice, comprises a new Staybridge reception hub with kitchen, living room, den, barbecue terrace, fitness room and small well stocked convenience shop, together with 44 studio suites and 29 one bedroom suites, including 4 accessible units for less able guests.

The Staybridge Suites is connected to the existing Express and therefore is an architectural extension.

The longer stay option for NEC visitors will compliment the existing Express hotel and together with the Hampton by Hilton on the same site, there is a fine choice of accommodation available at the one location, all centrally managed.

The main contractor on this project was Moss Construction Ltd.
