For eight days between May 26 and June 2, 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their second bed-in for peace in Suite 1742 at the in Montreal. In that hotel room, the newlywed couple not only invited journalists to observe their peaceful protest against the war in Vietnam, but also recorded the famous anthem "Give Peace a Chance" with a number of their friends.
While guests could book Suite 1742 before, the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth has revamped the room to pay homage to this iconic moment. They newly re-designed hotel room has mid-century design features, window decals inspired by their original protest signs, as well as several objects from the actual protest in 1969.
The suite's living room walls are lined with lyrics from "Give Peace a Chance," which was recorded in this room.
Inside the cabinets, which were inspired by storage used by John and Yoko, you'll find an installation that features interactive drawers full of photographs, podcasts, videos and historical objects.
The suite also includes an immersive Virtual Reality component so that guests can experience the room the way that John Lennon and Yoko Ono did nearly 50 years ago.
