The Lowry Hotel is located by the River Irwell in Salford, Greater Manchester, England. The five star hotel is named after the artist L. S. Lowry, it is close to Manchester city centre and it is promoted as "The Lowry Hotel[2] Manchester". When the first opened Marco Pierre White was the overseeing chef of The River Room Restaurant.

The hotel is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.

The hotel was owned by The Rocco Forte Collection, the company of Sir Rocco Forte, son of the late hotel magnate Baron Charles Forte. But in November 2016, the hotel was put up for sale, two years after being acquired by Westmont Hospitality Group and Mount Kellett Capital Management in a deal estimated to be worth £40m.

In a statement on behalf of the Lowry Hotel, commercial property service, CBRE Group, said: “CBRE has been instructed as Sole Selling Agent to secure a purchaser for The Lowry Hotel on behalf of the owners, an affiliate of Westmont Hospitality Group.”.[3]

Architecture[edit]

The Lowry Hotel structure is a reinforced concrete frame on continuous flight auger piles constructed on a brown field site adjacent to the River Irwell. The external façades are glazed with rain screen cladding hung from the frame. Public and service areas are situated on the two lower floors, with the conference centre accessible through a second entrance. Riverside Suites and the Presidential Suite are situated on the floors above.

Bedrooms[edit]

The bedroom areas from the third to eighth floors include Riverside Suites, 70 m2 (750 sq ft), and a Presidential Suite, 145 m2 (1,560 sq ft). The Presidential Suite is also called the Charles Forte Suite, a nod to its past as a property of the Forte Group.
