I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 9th floor with my wife for her birthday. What would have been a great weekend turned into a complete nightmare, the fire alarms went off in the night, we ran down 9 flights of stairs to find the fire exit was LOCKED it was terrifying!
After several attempts to barge the push-bar open we gave up and tried another door at the base of the stairs which led to a dead-end, we finally found an unmarked route into the Royal Bank of Scotland offices below the hotel and used a fire exit in there. Saco is not staffed at nighto the Fire Brigade turned up to check the building was safe and after examining the locked fire escape, it was escalated to the Birmingham Fire Service as a breach of health and safety regulations. AVOID!
