Fairmont, the luxury hotel chain which operates 18 properties around the world, including New York's Plaza Hotel, has partnered with Abbey Road Studios, the recording studio made famous by the Beatles, to offer a “once-in-a-lifetime” lodging and music experience.
According to a statement released on Jan. 16, guests will have behind-the-scenes access to the studio where Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here and Radiohead’s The Bends were recorded and may have the ability to record their own songs at the iconic space.
A design team from London’s famed Savoy hotel has been brought in to spruce up the studio’s lounges and add its signature style.
Fairmont is the latest hotel chain to embrace a music-themed offering. Last month, Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos announced their own “Sound of Your Stay” option, which provides amenities such as Fender guitars for guests to play during their visit, mixing software for DJs on the go, amps and SOUL by Ludacris headphones.
The crosswalk just outside the studio, made famous by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as the cover of the Beatles' album Abbey Road, is viewable 24 hours a day via the studio's HD live cam.
