A BEATLES' HARD-DIE'S SITE

Received: Hard Days Night Hotel recreated iconic bed-in

25 March 2009: To celebrate the 40th anniversary of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s famous Amsterdam bed-in, Hard Days Night Hotel has recreated the event in the Lennon Suite using two professional lookalikes. This is one of two penthouse suites in the 110 room four-star boutique hotel located just a stones throw from the Cavern Club where the Beatles first rose to fame.
Following their marriage on 20th March 1969, John and Yoko used the hype of publicity to promote world peace. They invited the world’s press into their honeymoon suite at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel where they staged a week-long bed-in protesting against war.
In celebration of Liverpool’s Beatles heritage, Hard Days Night Hotel is paying tribute to one of the most iconic events in the life of the famous Beatle.
Mike Dewey, general manager, Hard Days Night Hotel, commented: “John and Yoko’s bed-in was a key moment in Beatles history. Our Lennon Suite is a tribute to John and what better way to mark the 40th anniversary than to recreate it? This shows our commitment as a hotel to Beatles fans across the globe. Thanks to a little help from our friends, it certainly won’t be a hard day’s night for our very own Beatles day trippers.”

Hard Days Night Hotel is a four star boutique hotel located in the ‘Beatles Quarter’ of Liverpool. The stunning grade II listed hotel features Beatles inspired artwork telling the story of the Beatles ‘from the basement to the roof’. Hard Days Night Hotel houses 110 luxury and deluxe guest rooms with two penthouses, the Lennon and McCartney suites. The hotel is also home to two restaurants, Blakes and The Brasserie which both serve modern British cuisine, two bars – Bar Four and Hari’s Bar, two conference rooms and a unique wedding suite. The hotel was developed by Bowdena Ltd.
