Rainbow Rooms

Southside is all about openness, tolerance and creativity – what’s more, it’s one of the best places to be a gay, transgender or lesbian in the UK.

The world-class gay scene in Southside really does have something to offer everyone – no matter what they are looking for. But of course that’s not all that Southside has to offer LGBT travellers.
Amazing history and culture, a vibrant art scene, great restaurants, shopping and museums, a relaxed way of life, in a district where everyone is not only free – but actively encouraged to be exactly who they want to be.
There are also some excellent hotels too, like those of the new Rainbow Rooms Southside Collection, hotels to fit every taste, and budget, but with one thing in common – they are especially welcoming for gay and lesbian guests.
The hotels in the Rainbow Rooms (Southside) Collection welcome gay and lesbian guests with professional and relaxed service.
The 7 participating hotels were revealed on the 23rd May 2014 to mark the advent of Birmingham Pride 2014
The hotels, who will all prominently display their Rainbow Rooms kitemark online and within the hotels themselves, are Radisson Blu, Holiday Inn, City Quarters, Stay City Birmingham, Wellington Hotel and the Ibis chain’s Ibis Birmingham New Street and Ibis Budget venues.


All participating hotels have signed up to the following pledges:
• all guests are treated with same courtesy, dignity and respect
• to contributing actively in social projects
• to create a work environment of respect and tolerance
• to offer their guests information about the LGBT scene
• participate in Southside’s LGBT information days
