A new Beatles-themed hotel is due to open in Liverpool in January 2008 to coincide with Liverpool’s tenure as the 2008 European Capital of Culture.

The Hard Days Night Hotel will be situated in the Cavern Quarter of Liverpool close to the Cavern Club where the Beatles first rose to fame.

The hotel will feature 110 rooms, including executive rooms and two penthouses – the specially designed Lennon and McCartney suites. The Lennon suite will feature a white grand piano.

It will also have two restaurants, two bars, conference rooms and a wedding chapel.
