The world’s top celebrities and heads of state frequently stay in the suite, and it’s the only Presidential Suite in a Manchester hotel where a president has actually stayed.
The Lowry Hotel prepares to open the doors to its newly renovated Presidential Suite following a £700,000 overhaul.
The luxurious penthouse suite, the largest both currently available or planned in the city at a spacious 2,228 square feet, costs a cool £4,000 per night and is famous for hosting VIP guests, including some of the world’s top celebrities and heads of state. Prime ministers and royalty frequently stay in the suite, and it’s the only Presidential Suite in a Manchester hotel where a president has actually stayed.
The suite is not just for A-listers. One guest booked it out for his children to revise for their A-levels; another family for their wannabe footballing stars to attend Manchester United’s soccer school – living there for two months, making them the suite’s longest residents.
With a baby grand piano and floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views across the river Irwell and Manchester’s skyline, over 20 television shoots have taken place there, from Cold Feet in 2001 to the refurbished apartment being the location for a yet titled Netflix series. Chart-topping songs have even been penned in the suite.
Newly released images reveal the first glimpse of the stunning makeover, which has been designed by renowned interior designers Goddard Littlefair and includes a complete reconfiguration and redesign of the space. The suite has a fully equipped kitchen and a luxury bespoke marble bathroom with a free-standing bath and a new double steam shower, at the request of many of the suite’s VIP guests.
