"A great hotel and a fab bed shame about the view"
I have stayed here a number of times and always find the rooms super comfy! Love the beds. The only criticism is the view classed as " city view" - not great considering I paid hundreds of pounds for one night.Genuine Expedia guest review
10 out of 10 . Had a fantastic stay . Staff were brilliant. Food was of very high standard . Will book another stay very soon .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, Great location for Arena,"
Stayed here for one night when after watching a concert at the MEN/Phones4u Arena. When we got back to the hotel, the bar was still serving food. Ordered two snacks which took over an hour to be served, despite other peoples' snacks being served almost 30mins before ours... when ours finally came, some things were missing (e.g the chicken!!!). And the […] bar staff didn't know what bitter lemon was, despite it being on the drinks menu!. Everything else very high standard! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"50TH BIRTHDAY TREAT!"
'PUSHED THE BOAT OUT' TO TREAT MY WIFE (WHO IS A MANCHESTER LASS) ON HER 50TH BIRTHDAY AND STAYED FOR TWO NIGHTS. DOORMAN PARKED OUR CAR ON ARRIVAL AND OUR BAGS WERE SWIFTLY TAKEN TO OUR ROOM AS WE CHECKED IN. WE HAD BOOKED A ROOM WITH A 'CITY VIEW' BUT FOUND OURSELVES LOOKING OUT OVER A BIG PUBLIC CAR PARK! THIS WAS RESOLVED WITHIN HALF AN HOUR AND […] WE CHANGED ROOMS. DID NOT HAVE DINNER IN THE HOTEL BUT THE BREAKFAST WAS EXCELLENT AND SERVED UNTIL 10.30AM. ON WEEKDAYS.

"Excellent Hotel with many luxuries"
Excellent staff all around from the front desk to the spa services, lots of space in your room, great view from your room, and everything you could want in a hotel room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Five Star service but hotel lacks character"
Nice welcome from friendly staff. The room was spacious and very comfortable but too warm. Air condition was noisey, making it difficult to sleep. You can't open the window for fresh air. The cheapest cost for access to the internet is £15 which seem poor value for money.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel very good and at normal pricing pretty faultless. However, when charged excessive room charges due to town being busy, it isn't good value. It isn't special enough for these scandalous rates.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The only hotel to stay at in Manchester"
I stayed in a different hotel the night before in Manchester, and over the years have stayed in 3-4 different hotels in Manchester. and being from London have stayed in many London hotels. the Lowrey is simply the `Best` I could not fault it, from arrival to departure!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Leonard Cohen experience"
We were attending the Leonard Cohen concert at the Arena that night and who should be staying at the hotel but the great man himself and his magnificent band. That tells you how good The Lowry is! Very impressed by the room, service, food and staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing hotel in a great location!"
I've stayed in many hotels across the world and can truly say that this hotel stands out. Yes, the hotel is very stylish and our room was large but me it was the outstanding service that would make me return every time! Nothing was too much trouble and any request was handled immediately. This hotel stands out from the rest - keep doing what you're […] doing!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very bare but lovelly service"
Found the hotel bare but the rooms were lovelly . The outside doesnt look as nice as the photos make it look and found the breakfast far too pricey . Staff were great and welcoming loved late checkout and services offered. Didnt like having to pay so much for the car park . Nothing to do in the hotel without paying extra for. All in all tho we had enjoyed […] our romantic break just wishwe could of done more. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"V GOOD HOTEL"
HAD VERY NICE STAY HOWEVER THEIR WAS A WEDDING IN THE HOTEL AND THE MUSIC COULD BE HEARD THROUGH OUT THE HOTEL INTO THE EARLY HOURS. STAFF ARE VERY GOOD AND I WOULD RECOMMEND THE HOTEL. JUST MAKE SURE TO ASK IF THERE IS ANY FUNCTIONS AT THE TIME OF YOUR STAYGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The service was Incredible. From the minute we arrived we had a gentleman offer to carry out bags, Before we'd even stepped out of the car park! On arrival to reception we were greeted with a smile and issued with two keys to our room without asking. A courtesy call in good time before our stay was issued due to the restaurant and bar being refurbished […] and in a different location to normal. The room was beautiful. Tidy and neat, extremely comfortable bed. Too comfortable if you require an early start! Sleeping in is a must! The restaurant and bar was moved to the exceptionally well kept library area. Waiters and waitresses were polite and well paced. Never had to wait for a thing. Service with a smile!! Drinks were incredible and well made. Personal recommendation: Try the Fries! Compliments to the chef on the food. Club Burger was very well made and the leanest of beef was used! I cant compliment this place enough. Greatest overnight stay in a hotel for me personally. ME and the girlfriend will be planning another visit very soon im sure! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Fabulous experience and lovely staff. Everyone was very friendly and the hotel is gorgeous.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel. Window shades are not properly blocking the sunlight and hence it was not a good night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comments on hotel"
Excellent reception on arrival. All staff in hotel helpful and polite. The only adverse comment I have is there was no coffee making facilities in room and they had to be requested from reception.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very welcoming appealing hotel with wonderful dining room Only brickbat is paying for WiFi-Lesser hotels supply it gratisGenuine Expedia guest review
No tea or coffee making facilities in rooms but available on request (no biscuits though!) Not sure how this hotel is one of the Leading Hotels of the World though as it's a bit blandGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for all"
Excellent hotel - no complaitns at all :) brilliant from arriving to leavingGenuine Expedia guest review
Really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Brilliant for shopping eating and drinking."
Fab hotel with lovely, helpful and friendly staff. The only (very slight) problem with the room was the blinds- it was very light early in the morning and blackout blinds would be a great addition. We had a fantastic time despite the cancellation of the Franki Valli concert!Genuine Expedia guest review
We were greated like old friends and made very comfortable during our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our second stay at The Lowry and we will definitely be returning. It's pricey but exactly what you would expect from a 5* hotel. The hotel is within walking distance of Spinningfields and the main shopping centre. I would recommend The Lowry to anyone looking to treat someone to a fab stay in Manchester!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not a great start when they make you feel like a criminal because you don't want to leave a credit card imprint...I have staying in 100s of hotels, most much nicer than this one and nobody has ever threatened to clear out the mini bar incase I was to run away with the contents!! Unbelievable. To then be treated with a cracked sink with a hole in it, […] cracked floor tiles and moody grout only increased my dislike of the hotel. The gym has very dated equipment and no air con, leaving the door open to the reception area didn't help the temperature. When I asked for some ice and for someone to come and look at the antiquated air con in the room the response was to charge me £5 for the ice...nobody turned up to look at the air con so the room was unbearably hot....the controls have 3 settings, hot, med, cool...cool ain't cool!! Overall a big disappointment, stay the at the crowne plaza, it's much nicer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"BEST IN MANCHESTER?"
High end hotel which is as good as a provincial hotel gets ( it's not The Dorchester or The Ritz). Helpful and friendly valet parking and check in. Our ' standard room' was bigger than average and well appointed, with good seating and desk area and an oversize bed. Bathroom was fine, shower over the bath ( which was the narrowest bath I have experienced), […] but it worked well. Dinner in the River Restaurant was a triumph. Masterchef-style food, good size portions, beautiful presentation, great flavours. We didn't have breakfast. In summary, well worth the money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice convenient hotel"
Bed sheets were dirty and had to be changed. Other than that, good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Manchester city hotel"
For a 5 star hotel, the lobby area and bedroom corridors really could do with updating and making more luxurious. It looks very bland and more like a Holiday Inn than a luxury hotel. Restaurant area is better and breakfast was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No way this is a five star hotel,"
No way this is a five star hotel, it's looks much more like a 3-4 stars ones. No swimming pool, ok-ish restaurant, shabby "spa" which offer only a tiny shower with a broken head, and a tiny 1 person sauna. The overall condition of the hotel reminded us more of a standard city hotel, nothing exceptional and lots of wear and tear signs (especially floorings). […] No coffee/tea maker in the room, and it cost £12 for two teas using the room service. No free internet, instead it's £6 an hour. During checkout they overcharged us a night, Had to go back and have it sorted, really not something we would expect from a 5 star hotel, we only stayed 1 night ! On the way home they gave us a token to leave the car park, of course it didn't work and we had to buzz in to exit. We were expecting much more for £300 a night....

Very good. Excellent food, very comfortable beds, very helpful staff. Only downside was high bar prices.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room was not serviced on the second night although we were out all evening from 17.00pm. The hotel generally is looking a bit 'tired' and really needs an make over.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel for a luxury stay"
Hotel was brilliant and the staff were very helpful. Made sure I knew where places were. I was going to one direction concert and the arena is a five minute walk as are shops. The room was immaculate and the bed was so comfortable. Would recommend the hotel for everyone that wants a weekend of luxuryGenuine Expedia guest review

A very well run and comfortable hotel with a good location and everything you need.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Generic international hotel"
Good quality hotel. It was missing tea and coffee making in your room and a swimming pool. I also think that internet from rooms should be included (at least for a short period) I think it started at £6 for 1 hour. The parking is also expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
excellent hotel and service ,within walking distance of shops would recommend this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the staff are very helpful , the hotel has an air of calmGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is perhaps one of the best hotels in Manchester, and the reason why they normally charge so much. I wouldn't normally have a need to pay for such extravagance, but this was in a deal. One irritation - without asking for it, room service elected to knock on my door at 7pm to deliver some missing water to the room. I was about to take a shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
T.V not working in room.bar closed at 11pm ,i am not a big drinker but i do like to relax with a drink after being out for the day,and as for the T.V i am not going to ring reception at 23.15 hrs to tell them that the tv is faulty,that should have been checked before guests arrive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing place to stay."
Overall everything was very nice. I did not have a chance to visit the spa and fitness facilities. I wish I have time for it. Hope to go back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Unpretentious elegance with service second to none. Very easy parking and handy for the City centreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel in the heart of Manchester"
Its not cheap but you get what you pay for. Plush hotel, fabulous rooms and a good view. A 5 minute walk down the canal gets you to the center of Manchester. If you do not want to pay for the Valet parking there is a pay and display car park next to the hotel (2 minute walk), Obviously its not secure so you take your choice but we found it to be fi […] ne.

The pillows were very uncomfortable & the bar is not as nice as the Edwardian Radisson in Manchester.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent service. Even gave us half a bottle of champagne "for our inconvenience" after they delivered it to the wrong room! What more can you say.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was travelling as carer to a wheel chair user, and found all the staff, facilities and services above and beyond expectations. I can't think of anything that was less than 100 percent about our stay there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
