Guestrooms feature artwork by
acclaimed Beatles artist Shannon.
Fans of the Fab Four finally have a place to rest their heads. This month saw the opening of the first Beatles-themed property, appropriately named the Hard Days Night Hotel, in Liverpool, England.
The 110-room, four-star hotel is in a prime location in Liverpool known as the Beatles Quarter and adjacent to the famed Cavern Club.
Decorations are upscale and tasteful without going overboard. The artwork features never-before-seen pictures of the group, as well as work by acclaimed Beatles artist Shannon. Each guestroom features a specially commissioned piece by the artist. The hotel’s two suites Lennon and McCartney offer clients the ultimate Beatles hotel experience and details of their accoutrements have been kept under wraps. However, the Lennon suite features a white baby grand piano, while Sir Paul McCartney’s has a suit of armor.
True fans will appreciate Blakes, the hotel’s restaurant, which is named after the designer of the Sergeant Pepper’s album cover, Peter Blake. The walls feature 60 images influenced by the album’s cover. The menu offers sophisticated fare, and not too much “Beatles” flavor. However, clients can order Honey Can’t Buy Me Love for dessert. They also offer a Beatles Blend tea. Room rates start at $340. Suites start at around $1,300.
