Book the Hilton at Birimingham airport
Treat yourself to Birmingham airport's most opulent hotel. Whether you're working out that tension at a free aqua aerobics class or playing gourmande in any of the hotel's three classy restaurants, you'll find it worth every penny. Why while away the hours before your flight when they can fly by while you're having fun at the hedonistic Hilton?
Arrival at the Hilton Metropole
The time you can check in from varies depending on the season. You will need to confirm this once your booking has been made.
Directions to the hotel:
Follow signs for the National Exhibition Centre (NEC). The hotel is signposted once within the complex grounds.
Take a train to Birmingham airport train station, then call the hotel from the free phone you will find inside the station next to the Subway fast-food restaurant. The hotel will send their free bus to pick you up from bus stop C, the first white bus stop next to the taxi rank. If stop C is full, the bus may have to stop elsewhere, so keep an eye out for it.
Getting to and from BHX airport
The hotel runs a bus to the nearby train station 24 hours a day. It runs every half an hour, on the hour and half past the hour. From there, you can catch the monorail to the terminal, which runs every 2 minutes and takes 2 minutes to get to the airport.
On the other hand, you can walk to the train station in 10 minutes or ask the concierge to book you a taxi. It’ll cost you around £6 for a standard size taxi and the journey takes about 5 minutes.
Returning to the Hilton Metropole
Latest check-out time is 11:00.
The hotel runs its own transfer bus, which is free for guests. The transfer bus gets very busy at peak times, so the hotel suggests you book your place with reception in advance to make sure you catch the bus you need.
Due to airport restrictions, the hotel cannot take you to the terminal during the day, but instead they will take you to the airport's train station. From there, you can take a free monorail into the terminal. The bus runs every 20-30 minutes and it will take you around 12 minutes to reach the train station.
From 22:30 to 06:00, the hotel's bus is allowed into the airport and will drop you at the terminal if you're travelling at night.
