“We operate four hotels in the Birmingham area and we have our own offices here too, so we are proud to support the city’s bid to welcome the Commonwealth Games in 2022.

“The event’s arrival would undoubtedly bring numerous benefits to the region, especially from a tourism perspective, further strengthening the city’s position as a great location for leisure, business, sports and culture.

“Coupled with such excellent transport links, both nationally and internationally, it makes perfect sense to bring such as prestigious event to Birmingham – right in the heart of the UK.

“We look forward to supporting the bid as the campaign continues.”
