Each year on December 8th, the day Lennon was murdered, roses are left anonymously by the door of suite 1742 at Montreal's Fairmont Queen Elizabeth.

This room was the location of John and Yoko’s Bed-In for Peace back in 1969.

It was the second of two sit-ins the newlywed couple held as a non-violent way of protesting war, hoping to create awareness and inspire others to promote peace.

After the first Sit-In in Amsterdam, the plan was to originally hold the second in New York City, but John was denied a US visa because of a previous conviction for marijuana possession. They changed plans and headed to the Bahamas, but apparently John couldn’t find a big enough fan and he wasn't one to get sweaty between the sheets, so the couple left abruptly for Montreal after John found the island too hot to stay in bed for a week.

We don't necessarily recommend staying in bed for a week - Montreal is too great a city - but if you're not getting sweaty, you're in the wrong room. Why? Because that means you didn't book the Queen Elizabeth's Suite 1742, and you can.

That's right, you can stay in the exact room John and Yoko occupied, but you need to contact the hotel directly to inquire about rates and availability (starting at about $800 a night). The hotel often has packages surrounding the suite. The current being the Bed-In for Peace Package which includes one night's accommodation, a Lennon CD with the song Give Peace a Chance, a copy of the lyrics, and, naturally, breakfast in bed.

While many hotels in Montreal are situated above the 20-mile underground city and the Metro, the Queen E is located on top of the VIA Rail and Amtrak stations, so you'll merely have to walk up the steps if you're taking the train into town from NYC or another part of Canada. It's a nice alternative to airplane travel and a great beginning to your 60's throwback vaca.
