The latest development is the six riverside suites, which have been inspired by the artworks of the Oldham-born artist Alan Rankle.

The refurbishment has been delivered by global architecture and interior design practice, Arney Fender Katsalidis (AFK), in collaboration with the artist.

Six of Rankle’s abstract artworks are reflected within the design of the suites from the colour schemes through to the textiles and furnishings.

The 165-bed Lowry Hotel marked its 15th birthday in April.

General manager Adrian Ellis said: “We are the only hotel in the city centre named after an artist, and we are proud to celebrate not only LS Lowry, renowned for his depictions of Salford, but also work with and display contemporary artists and photographers including iconic images from Kevin Cummins and commissioned Manchester statements from Alan Grainger.
