MONTRÉAL: A Bed with History
Ono you didn't: Golden slumbers will fill your eyes in room #1742, the John Lennon and Yoko Ono Suite, at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in downtown Montréal, Canada.
Snooze factor: Power nap. "Rest in peace" takes on a much sunnier meaning in this room, where the tranquil twosome held their famous "Bed-in for Peace" in 1969. It's also where they recorded the hippie hymn "Give Peace a Chance." John and Yoko didn't relax much during their "Bed-in," giving around 50 journalist interviews on each of the eight days. But you should spend your time in this legendary bed in the most romantic city in North America making love (not war). John would have wanted it that way.
Who goes there: Any Beatles fan, obviously (despite the Yoko factor). But if you believe that peasant tops, hip-huggers, and oversize sunglasses will never go out of style, this bed's for you, too.
Undercover info: In honor of the 40th anniversary of John and Yoko's Bed-in for Peace, the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth is offering the Imagine Package through mid-June 2009. It includes one night of accommodations, a CD of "Give Peace a Chance" (as well as a lyric sheet for the song), and breakfast in bed. The Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and Yoko Ono are also presenting a free commemorative exhibition called Imagine: John & Yoko's Pacifist Anthem.
