birmingham macdonaldburlingtonAThe Macdonald Burlington Hotel in the centre of Birmingham is planning a major revamp.

The Macdonald Burlington Hotel, which will be forever known by the locals as ‘The Midland’ its former name, overlooks the new-look Birmingham New Street station and the Grand Central development.

It is also well served by the new city metro system.

Perhaps more importantly from a business point of view is the fact it will be next door to the new Apple Computer shop which will be opening in Birmingham’s New Street.

Bedrooms at Macdonald Burlington Hotel are set to undergo a makeover blending the hotel’s period features with a ‘modern twist’.

Plans are also on the drawing board to refurbish the first floor restaurant and bar as well as the hotel’s public areas.

The Macdonald Burlington Hotel has seen many famous faces cross its threshold over the years including Laurel and Hardy, George Harrison and Eric Clapton. It was also where Enoch Powell delivered his famous ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech back in 1968.

Interestingly, the Macdonald Burlington Hotel also serves ‘Birmingham spring water’. It comes from its own source – a borehole deep beneath the hotel building where the underground tunnels used to distribute the mail across the city, still exist.
