Macdonald Burlington Hotel Unveils its Grand Ballroom

Following an ambitious renovation project, the Macdonald Burlington Hotel, Birmingham, has officially unveiled its spectacular grand ballroom to the public!

The city-centre hotel held a celebration for more than 200 guests, including local councillors, industry leaders and members of the business community  on Thursday 19 September to reveal the contemporary design.

As well as modernising the colour scheme, state-of-the-art sound and lighting features have been installed, and an integrated dance floor has been created at the heart of the room. Four magnificent chandeliers – the striking centre pieces of the suite – were dismantled, restored and rebuilt by hand, and the internal bar redesigned to include additional seating.

Derek McDonagh, regional managing director, said: “After months of work, it is such a wonderful feeling to officially unveil our state-of-the-art meeting and event facilites to the world. Our Horton Suite has always been one of the biggest event spaces in the city, but now it is definitely one of the most stylish. It was an extensive project and no detail has been overlooked. Materials were sourced from around the country and specialist craftsmen completed intricate projects, including the restoration of the chandeliers. We worked with many fine Birmingham-based tradesmen to complete construction in a careful but timely manner.

“The final event suite is both grand and opulent, but also feels modern and contemporary. All facilities have been completely refreshed, and the room boasts excellent lighting and hi-tech equipment.

“At Macdonald Burlington Hotel, we regularly welcome everyone from international business delegates, to local wedding parties, and we are very excited to now showcase our new ballroom to the world.”
