Inside a Regular Room and All Around Liverpool's Beatles-Theme Hard Day's Night Hotel
Chances are, if you're heading to Liverpool to take in the Beatles and pop music history of the city, the Hard Day's Night Hotel is on your list of must-sleeps or at least must-sees. You almost can't avoid it, since the hotel sits at the entrance to the famous "Cavern Quarter," down which alley-like street you'll find the various underground music clubs that nurtured the young Beatles, The Who, and basically name any famous British musician from the 1950s through 1970s.
We've already given you a full look around the hotel's Paul McCartney suite and a peek at room service, but downstairs there's so much more going on. The HDN isn't just a hotel with a slight glaze of Beatles theme; the fab four are baked into the place, with priceless artwork at every turn and design flair that keeps it far away from looking anything like a Hilton or Marriott.
In addition to the perks of being surrounded by Beatlesmania, the Hard Day's Night has free WiFi, included breakfast in Blake's restaurant, two floors of rooms with balconies or terraces, and modern in-room tech (like bedside light and temp control panels).
We won't spoil the surprise of the place too much for you, but do check out our photo gallery above. Rooms here start around £115 ($185) per night, or plonk down the cash for the McCartney (or Lennon) suites from £750 per night. And...for added celeb influence...Bieber stayed here!
