Greater Manchester’s iconic five-star hotel, The Lowry Hotel, has revealed a first look at its newly renovated Presidential Suite.

This opulent penthouse – the largest both currently available in the city at an expansive 2,228 sqft. – has been designed by renowned interior designers Goddard Littlefair, and includes a complete reconfiguration and redesign of the space.

This £4,000 per night suite includes an enlarged dressing room and a new bespoke marble bathroom, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, and a luxury bathroom with a freestanding bath and new double shower.

Not only this, but the new-look suite, which has been renovated to the tune of £700,000, features a super king size bedroom, a walk-in dressing room, a lounge and a plush dining room for up to eight people.

The floor to ceiling windows offer panoramic views across the river Irwell, as well as sweeping landscapes of Manchester’s skyline. The room comes with a mini grand piano, two in-room bars, two smart TVs and an Amazon Alexa.

In homage to the hotel’s namesake, Manchester artist L.S Lowry, a selection of art has been chosen especially for the room by ARTIQ. This 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.

General manager of The Lowry Hotel Adrian Ellis said the refurbishment, which has been taking place for three months, is the “first of many” for the hotel, with more exciting developments to be announced throughout the year.

“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,” Ellis said.  

He added: “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 luxury Lowry Hotel also boasts six Riverside suites, an additional 164 guest bedrooms, a spa, bar and The River Restaurant.

Goddard Littlefair, Interior Designers of the suite, commented on the inspiration behind the design: ‘This was a special and prestigious project for us, showcasing the first of our new designs for The Lowry Hotel.

“The new design has a residential feel, with light and bright tonal colours used for the walls, curtains and carpets, offset by darker joinery, with painterly or geometric-patterned fabrics used for cushions and curtain trims for added visual interest. Colours range from rich bronzes and burnt oranges to off-whites and textured blue-greys.

“Special joinery features include four sets of double screens around the living and dining areas to help zone the space and a bespoke dining table for eight with a feature veneer inset pattern.”
