We believe in offering our customers value for money in everything we do - in that spirit, car parking and Wi-Fi access are free!
We are one of the few hotels in the area who do not charge our cutomers for parking during their stay. What's more, we have parking for approximately 270 cars on site, and so there is none of the hassle of valet parking. Parking at the NEC or Birminham Airport can be very expensive.
Please note that parking is only free for our customers and terms do apply (see our parking tariff).
Visiting the NEC or LG Arena - Car parking for concerts and exhibitions can be very expensive. In addition, like any other large venue, the car parks and roads around the NEC and airport can become very congested around peak times. To avoid these negatives, many of our customers choose to leave their vehicle in our car park for the duration of their stay and instead take the 5-10 minute walk to the NEC site. Invariably, you could have walked back to the Arden in the time it takes you to find your car in the NEC Carparks, let alone get out of them!
Park and fly - You'll likely find that the cost of parking at the Airport for a week or two will be more than the cost of enjoying a night's accomodation with with one of our park and fly rates and then leaving your car for the duration of your trip. The taxi journey to the airport is approximately 5 minutes (£6), but many of our guests choose to walk to the railway station and then take the free monorail which delivers you directly into the terminal. The walk is approximatley 10 minutes with luggage, and the free monorail takes seconds and runs from 0515 - 0200. Why not start your holiday early and book one of our park and fly rates? Please note, park and fly rates are only available by prior arrangement.
Free Wi-Fi - again most hotels and venues within the area charge customers (upto £16 for 24 hours or £6 for 90 minutes) to access the internet. Our entire hotel, including all bedrooms and public areas, are covered by the market leading, higly reliable and quick BT Openzone. We offer this service free to all our customers.
