MHR group buys Beatles-themed hotel in Liverpool
Millennium Hotels and Resorts (MHR) has acquired a Beatles inspired hotel located in the heart of Liverpool’s increasingly popular Cavern Quarter.
Hard Days Night Hotel, situated on the city’s North John Street, will now become MHR’s 24th property within the UK and Europe, adding to its worldwide portfolio.
Based in the Grade II listed Central Buildings close to the Cavern Club where The Beatles performed more than 290 times, the Hard Days Night Hotel offers 110 guest rooms and has been acclaimed for its interior and originality.
CEO of Millennium Hotels and Resorts Aloysius Lee said: “Liverpool is a leading tourist destination that continues to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors annually on a mass global scale.
“It continues to maintain its prominent stance by investing in an array of forward-thinking regeneration projects, while firmly retaining its Beatles legacy.
“Being the only one of its kind, Hard Days Night Hotel offers a Beatles experience like no other and we are confident that our guests, particularly from countries including China, USA, Canada and Europe, will be excited by the choice of this latest acquisition. Furthermore, the ‘Fab Four’ and Liverpool are very popular to both the North American and Asian markets.
“We are thrilled to welcome Hard Days Night Hotel and more than 150 team members into the MHR global family.”
General Manager of Hard Days Night Hotel Mike Dewey added: “Hard Days Night Hotel is a first class hotel that continues to exceed guests’ expectations and we look forward to widening our global reputation by maximising the distribution channels effectively run by MHR and taking the property to the next level.”
