The Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Canada, is marking the 50th anniversary of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Bed-in for peace protest with a series of events this month.
The week-long protest against the Vietnam War saw the legendary couple compose and record the famous anthem, Give Peace a Chance, without leaving their bed.
The anniversary will be celebrated at the Queen Elizabeth hotel with a series of photographic exhibitions, guided tours of the couple’s suite and a Peace and Love party where guests are invited to embrace the peace movement, don their best hippie outfit and dance to the beat of DJ Jojo Flores.
Those wishing to have their own Bed-in experience can reserve the 50th Anniversary Bed-in Package that includes accommodation in Suite 1742; breakfast at Rosélys restaurant or in room; two white pajamas; calligraphed lyrics of "Give Peace a Chance"; a booklet of photos; white flowers; a commemorative collector item; a welcome treat and a $100 donation to Amnistie Internationale Canada Francophone.
The package is available year-round at the cost of CAN$2999 (US$2224), double occupancy.
