The 5-star Lowry Hotel is getting even more luxurious


Few hotels enjoy the location and reputation of The Lowry Hotel.

A luxurious hideaway for those in the know and home to impromptu performances by some of the hotel’s high profile guests, including Lady Gaga and Take That, The Lowry has everything you would expect from a 5-star hotel plus unique riverside views and terrace.

So how do you make a 5-star hotel better? The answer is by making it even more luxurious.

2019 is a huge year for investment at the hotel, with a new-look Presidential Suite, lobby and mezzanine, a redesign of the hotel’s luxury corner suites and upgrades of its meeting spaces.

The ambitious seven-figure refurbishment will see an entire redesign of the hotel’s bar and restaurant, creating two new destination venues – the Lowry Lounge & Bar and River Restaurant.

They will feature soft hues, a new layout, bespoke furnishings, and a choice of sociable or comfortable secluded seating.

The new look is being created by award-winning interior designers, Goddard Littlefair, who also designed the hotel’s newly refurbished Presidential Suite – the largest in Greater Manchester – and lobby areas which have a similar fluid and sophisticated look and feel.

While the fresh new destination for riverside drinks and dining is being prepared, the hotel’s ballroom has been transformed into an exciting pop-up restaurant and bar to cater for guests.

The new venue is planning an entertainment and events programme featuring live performances most nights.

General manager Adrian Ellis said: “The new Lowry Lounge & Bar and River Restaurant allows us to maintain our five-star service standards as well as offer a personalised experience for all guests, whether it be an overnight stay or superb evening out”.

The refurb is due for completion in late September this year.

The Lowry Hotel has 165 bedrooms and six suites, as well as a spa, restaurant and bar, and a variety of meeting and event spaces.
