I have stayed at the Lowry 3 times in the recent past. I have received an exceptionally warm welcome each time and this gets the stay off to a good start. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and above all quiet. There is no traffic noise nor is there any sound from the corridor or the adjacent rooms. Everything works. The breakfast room is very light and spacious with a good selection of food. It was, however, disappointing to find stale croissants at 7:30. The staff are helpful in advising on places to go and getting taxis.
The atmosphere is of calm professionalism which when combined with the light and spacious architecture makes for an ideal base in the city. As others have said, the soft furnishings in the rooms are a bit tired and not 5*: for this reason the nominal room rate is too high but rooms are usually available at a substantial discount which makes them good value.More
