Sanchez staying in £816-a-night luxury hotel



Alexis Sanchez is under the same roof as his manager Jose Mourinho after checking in to the Lowry Hotel following his arrival at Manchester United.

The Chilean has checked in to one of the five-star hotel’s luxury Riverside Suites, similar to the room Mourinho has been living in since his appointment at Old Trafford 18 months ago.

The Lowry has recently refurbished their half-a-dozen Riverside suites, which typically cost guests an average of £816 a night.


Sanchez offered his Instagram followers a glimpse inside his room on Tuesday night and had dressed up his beloved dogs Atom and Humber in United shirts with ‘Alexis 7’ on the back.

Given that the suites are 90 square metres – the largest in the city, according to the hotel – Sanchez’s pooches will have plenty of room.

There is a Riverside Suite on each floor of the hotel, all overlooking the adjacent River Irwell, and each is described as having ‘the feeling of a stylish private apartment.’

Five of the six rooms can be connected to a deluxe room next door, meaning others can stay. Sanchez’s mother is also staying at the hotel as he settles into life at United.

The suites also boast a separate lounge and dining area for four people, bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and a kitchenette for preparing meals.

The recent upgrades have been inspired by the artworks of the painter Alan Rankle, who was born in nearby Oldham.
The bed headboards are a replica of one of Rankle’s works and the rest of the decor is styled accordingly to blend in with it.

Tea and coffee making facilities are included, along with a fridge and coffee machine.

All six of the rooms are packed with technology, including two Smart TVs, high-speed broadband and two direct-dial telephones with voice messaging. There is also an ethernet dataport and a connection for a fax machine, with guests given the machine itself on request.

Within the hotel itself guests have access to a gym and spa area, 24-hour room service and a concierge, while all Riverside Suite guests are offered in-suite check in, a bag packing service, valet and a full English breakfast.
If guests so choose, they can enhance their stay with six chocolate-dipped strawberries for £12 or a bottle of champagne for £100.
