Westmont Hospitality Group, the new owner of the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, is planning a major £4million refurbishment of the landmark hotel on the Manchester/Salford border.

A comprehensive makeover is planned for the 165-bedroom hotel including new curtains, carpets, fabrics and colour schemes throughout the bedrooms and public areas. The upgrade is designed to introduce a fresher look, whilst maintaining the modern feel of the hotel. The refurbishment will take around six months and completion is expected by the end of 2015.

The Lowry Hotel is located on Dearmans Place next to Trinity Bridge a short walk from Deansgate in central Manchester. It is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World consortium.
