The four-star Macdonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham City Centre has unveiled the first phase of a £750,000 renovation of its meeting and events spaces.

The investment marks the repositioning of the hotel’s conference facilities to become a standalone multi-purpose events venue.

To date, a total of 16 meeting rooms have undergone refurbishment to refresh the interiors and install the latest technology. Rooms have been fitted with 75” flat-screen LCD screens and state-of-the-art ClickShare connectivity. Designed to encourage collaboration, the technology allows delegates to connect their devices to the main presentation screen and share content at the click of a button.

The hotel’s largest function room, which can host over 500 guests, is also due for refurbishment, with work scheduled to commence later this year.

The modernisation of the hotel’s facilities comes in anticipation of a busy summer calendar of high-profile events, which includes the official launch of the first phase of refurbishment later this month. A further event is planned for September when the hotel’s largest function room – the 500-person capacity Horton Suite - is completed. 

Regarded as one of the city’s leading conference venues, the hotel was awarded the BDRC VenueVerdict Gold Standard Accreditation in 2018 for outstandingly high levels of customer satisfaction.

Tim Sparrow, General Manager of Macdonald Burlington Hotel, said: “Macdonald Burlington Hotel has developed a reputation for being one of the leading conference venues in the city.

“This renovation project represents a significant move to modernise our facilities and provide the best possible experience to our business guests. We are targeting becoming the number one multi-purpose events space in the city and believe by enhancing our offering we’ll be able to achieve this goal.”

The four-star Macdonald Burlington Hotel which is close to both Birmingham Airport and New Street train station combines Victorian splendour and stylish interior design.
