The region’s most expensive hotel room just got even more impressive – and here’s the first look inside the revamped Presidential Suite at the Lowry Hotel.
You can book the huge suite inside Salford’s only five star hotel for a cool £4,000 a night.
But while you save up your pennies for that, here’s our sneaky peek inside the amazing room at the hotel which is a home-from-home for visiting A-listers, footballers and VIPs.
Bosses at The Lowry believe they have raised the luxury stakes yet again with their £700,000 renovation of the Presidential Suite.
The super-swanky penthouse suite is the largest both currently available or planned in the city at 2,228 square feet.
A-list guests frequently stay in the suite, which has also played host to prime ministers and royalty and it’s the only Presidential Suite in a Manchester hotel where a president has actually stayed.
The suite is not just for celebrities, though, as one guest booked out the suite for his children to revise for their A-levels and the suite’s longest stay was a Russian family who lived there for two months whilst attending Manchester United’s soccer school.
Chart-topping songs have been penned in the suite, which boasts a baby grand piano with panoramic views over the city, and over 20 television shoots have taken place there, from Cold Feet in 2001 to the refurbished apartment being the location for an as yet untitled Netflix series.
The stunning new look has been designed by renowned interior designers Goddard Littlefair and includes a complete reconfiguration and redesign of the space, an enlarged dressing room and a new bespoke marble bathroom.
The suite includes a fully equipped kitchen and a luxury bathroom with a free-standing bath and a new double steam shower, at the request of many of the suite’s VIP guests.
It also features a super king size bedroom, a walk-in dressing room, a lounge and a plush dining room for up to eight people. There is an additional bedroom and adjoining bathroom for family, friends or even a personal assistant, security, stylist or chef, which can also be used as a private gym or yoga studio.
The floor to ceiling windows offer panoramic views across the River Irwell and the Manchester skyline, and the room also comes with a mini grand piano, two in-room bars, two smart TVs and an Amazon Alexa.
In homage to the hotel’s namesake, Salford artist LS Lowry, a selection of art has also been chosen especially for the room by ARTIQ. The rich collection takes inspiration from Manchester’s industrial architecture as well as abstracted figures that draw on Lowry’s matchstick men.
As well as complimentary valet, luggage management, personalised welcome drinks and in- suite check in, guests can take advantage of a butler, on-site hairdresser, endless beauty treatments, Tesla hire, private chef or personal trainer whilst staying in the luxury suite.
“We pride ourselves on our five-star service, especially in our Presidential Suite where we’ve focused on the little details to make sure this is the most luxurious stay in the city,” said the hotel’s general manager, Adrian Ellis.
“We’ve picked out bespoke cutlery and tableware especially for the suite and can offer guests a turndown service of their choice. Whether they want a delicious patisserie platter, their favourite champagne or a local delicacy from their home country, we’ll do our best to get it for them.”
The Lowry Hotel also boasts six Riverside suites, an additional 164 guest bedrooms, a spa, bar and The River Restaurant.
