Those special events include a Fabulous Four course menu in the hotel's restaurant, Six Seven; a Beatles look-alike contest with a grand prize that includes a night in the famed Beatles Suite; and live music from Creme Tangerine, a well-known Beatles cover band.
Beatles-themed specialty cocktails (like the Yellow Sub-Martini and the Magical Mystery Mojito) will be served in the hotel and some staffers will be sporting Sgt. Pepper costumes throughout the day. Space in the lounge for the Beatles cover band is on a first-come, first-serve basis and the show begins at 9pm.
The Edgewater is also soliciting Beatles memories from fans on their Facebook page and via email (BeatlesMemories@Edgewaterhotel.com.) The winner will be selected by a panel of judges on August 31 and the grand prize is a night in the Beatles Suite and dinner at Six Seven.
So, about that Beatles Suite--it's room 272, a parlor room where John, Paul, George and Ringo originally stayed. It has now be turned into a 700-square foot shrine to all things Beatles, mostly in the form of photographs and Beatles CDs. As you can in the picture above, it's not all mod, swinging '60s or anything but rather typical Northwestern decor. If you look hard, you can see the giant photo of the boys fishing out the hotel window.
Now, all you need is love-and $1,050 per night plus taxes--to stay here. Regular room rates on August 21 start at $249 a night for a city lodge room.
