Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel in Montreal reopened in July 2017. The grand re-opening was the culmination of years of planning and full year closure of the hotel while she was transformed into totally renewed hotel experience that including a reinvented Fairmont Gold experience, Artisans Market and Suite 1742 also known as the John and Yoko Suite.
The John Lennon and Yoko Ono Suite
Preserving the historical character of Fairmount The Queen Elizabeth Suite 1742, which John and Yoko took over for their second bed-in in 1969, was a key goal of the hotel’s recent transformation by owner Ivanhoé Cambridge.
The concept for the redesign hinged on rearranging the furniture in the same way Lennon and Ono had for the bed-in. The first step was to place the bed against the main window and free the central space. Rather than recreate the hotel’s period décor, the design draws inspiration from places the couple had lived in or visited, such as London, New York, Tokyo and New Delhi. Reproductions of the famous handwritten Hair Peace and Bed Peace cutouts adorn the window once again, while the words of the song Give Peace a Chance, recorded by John and Yoko in Suite 1742, are inscribed repeatedly on the walls, after the fashion of a war memorial—with, in this case, a wish for peace in lieu of the names of fallen soldiers.
