That's good. Last time we went - probably about a year or so ago, it was excellent as it always is, but the lobby was starting to feel a little tired. Sofas worn out and no pile left in the carpets etc.

Probably overdue some love.

Same news but from EGI:

Hyatt buys Birmingham hotel

US group Hyatt Hotels has bought the Hyatt Regency Birmingham, the hotel it manages in the city, for close to £27m.

Hyatt has acquired the 319-bedroom Hyatt Regency Birmingham from administrators at Ernst & Young. The group currently operates the hotel on a management contract.

Ernst & Young was appointed administrator to the hotel in June 2011 after investor Gulshan Bhatia and her son Asif lost control of it.

The next month, the pair's Waldorf hotel in London, WC2, which is leased to Hilton, was placed into the hands of administrators at KPMG.

Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels advised Ernst & Young.

It's definitely getting tired and in need of a refurb.

Also a funky lighting scheme would be good at the top

I don't think the recesses would work though Brum - maybe a nice pinline of light all around the slab of glazing would do?

That would look great ... until ... one or two strips went out, never to be replaced again and the whole building would look a shambles after nightfall! You know what we're like in this country at maintenance!!!

Orion Building is a good example for maintaining the LED lights, although they look nice at nightflall when the all are working.

Damn, I forgot how slick this building was. Easily the best looking UK tower of the 90's.

One of the dark panels on the side facing Five Ways has fallen off, just a piece of blank wood covering it over now, looks terrible.

I just wish they would fix the panels. I was walking along gas street basin and has anyone noticed the water damage behind the panels.

Best thing is its had a bit of a spruce up out front, turfing, mini trees and mini gardens. Christmas lighting now on. Looks really neat.

Everytime I've been past Hyatt lately it seems to be filled up more than before, have they cut prices? Seems very popular lately

I know a few months ago they were doing rooms for £20 a night.
