Hotel rooms

Our venue, the Hilton Birmingham Metropole has a large amount of bedrooms available, suitable for housing the entire Convention membership on site. All rooms are on the first floor and above, accessible by lift and stairs.

The majority of rooms are doubles and twins, with a smaller number of triples and family rooms available. There are 20 rooms adapted to various accessibility needs. 

Prices are per room, charged at £68 (inc VAT) per night, regardless of occupancy. This means people sharing a room can bring down their costs significantly. Please remember that VAT may be subject to change in the time between now and the Convention.

Additionally, if you require a carer to stay with you in a separate room, or if you are a large family unit who need to be split over several rooms, only the one room will be charged - however any such requests will have to go through either our accessibility or hotel teams respectively, and cannot be booked directly. 

Superior rooms are available for an extra charge.

Breakfast is not included in the room price for members staying at the hotel. Breakfast is charged at the rate of £10.00 per person per day. Breakfast must be pre-ordered in order to allow the kitchen staff to cook enough food for everyone, but this can be ordered up until check-in if required.

Breakfast is not available for non-residents of the hotel.  The hotel will provide pop-up food stalls selling breakfast type items (bacon rolls, etc) as an alternative. Prices for this service are not yet available.

Pets are charged at £20 per pet per night (see our Pet Policy for details) (charge not applicable to assistance animals).

Booking a room

When room booking opens, you will be able to request rooms using the method most suited to your needs.

There will be four ways to request a room, depending on your circumstances.

1) You are staying alone or as part of a partnership where you will be paying only one bill

A link will be provided to a specially created booking portal on the Hilton Metropole website.

2) You are sharing with friends (or fellow conventioneers who will become friends) and want to split the bill

Do you want to share a room, but have noone to share it with yet? Go to our Facebook page to find willing volunteers!

Once you've committed to your shared room and booking is open, a link will be provided (please note this is a different link to the circumstances above) to a specially created booking portal on the Hilton Metropole website.

3) You are a family unit who would like to stay together in one room, or if that is not possible, in adjacent rooms

When booking opens, email hotel@dwcon.org with your requirements and we will sort out the booking for you.

4) You have accessibility needs which mean you need an adapted room or a room with special conditions

Please email accessibility@dwcon.org with your accommodation needs. We will book your room or rooms for you with the hotel. If you use a wheelchair or mobility scooter, please let us know the relevant details so we can account for turning circles, etc.

Members wanting to book alternative accommodation nearby, please make your own arrangements.

Requesting a room

Requesting a room is not a guarantee that we will be able to allocate you a suitable room. The hotel will allocate rooms according to the number and type of rooms available. We have a certain number of rooms reserved for the event, and the hotel may be able to go above this number, but it is not guaranteed, so please ensure you request a room as early as possible once booking opens.

You will receive an e-mail to confirm the successful booking of a room and a deposit of the first night's charge will be taken from your credit card to confirm the booking. This deposit is refundable up until 28 days before the event.

Accessibility

If you require an accessible room or have any questions about accessibility at the hotel, please contact our accessibility team at accessibility@dwcon.org.
