Lowry Hotel reports record month as city ‘bounces back’ from Arena attack

lowry hotelTHE five-star Lowry Hotel at Salford Quays achieved its best monthly revenue in October since opening six years ago with an increase of 5% on last year’s figure and an occupancy level exceeding 90%.

General Manager Adrian Ellis said the record figures are a clear sign that the city centre’s economy, and its hotel and leisure sector, is bouncing back strongly after the tragic attack at Manchester Arena in March.

“Hotels are a barometer for the wider economy and we interpret this record level of income for one month at The Lowry Hotel as demonstrating the city’s resilience,” he said.

“There is clearly the confidence and spending power among all of our target customers, whether it be overseas guests, corporate customers and those from the North-west and around the UK.”

Ellis puts the rise down to several factors including the new football season including Champions League fixtures and the re-opening of Manchester Arena in September, together with the Conservative Party conference.

He added: “The fact we are trading more strongly than ever is not just good news for the Lowry Hotel – it is good news for the city.

“Manchester is a fantastic business, entertainment and sporting destination both within the United Kingdom and internationally and The Lowry Hotel remains the preferred choice for high profile guests from the sporting, entertainment and corporate fields.”
