As one of the esteemed Leading Hotels of The World, The Lowry brings a colourful aesthetic to the banks of the River Irwell. Here, spacious rooms are comfortably furnished with retro-inspired dark wood and rich leather pieces. Alongside smart TVs and iPod docking stations, rooms also include walk-in wardrobes and bathrooms decorated with Italian porcelain tiles and glass mosaics. For a real treat, upgrade to the sumptuous penthouse Charles Forte Presidential Suite – the largest in Manchester. Relax in your own open-plan lounge-dining area with far-stretching views, a wide-screen TV and a baby grand piano.
During your stay, visit the elegant Riverside Restaurant for a spot of The Lowry’s award-winning afternoon tea, which includes delicacies like apricot and almond frangipane tart. Savour a seasonal dinner menu featuring dishes such as tandoori breast of pigeon and whole Dover sole, made using local produce. In the evening, head to the River Bar, a relaxed cocktail venue with a cosy Library area. The hotel’s signature drink, Trinity Bridge, includes a shot of champagne.
To pamper yourself from top to toe, make the most of The Lowry Spa. Six large treatment areas offer relaxing massages and skin-revitalising facials that use pure oxygen and natural soluble collagens to promote cell renewal. This Manchester hotel is currently leading the way in its use of award-winning QMS Medicosmetics Skincare products, which it offers alongside Elemis formulas. Finally, complete your soothing visit with a detoxifying trip to the sauna room or refresh your look with a manicure.
