Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Montreal, Canada
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth is an elegant hotel located in the heart of Montreal. The famous John Lennon and Yoko Ono Suite is the site of the 1969 ‘bed-in for peace’, where the song ‘Give Peace a Chance’ was composed and recorded. Today it’s been revamped into a luxury suite that can accommodate up to four people and features a virtual reality experience and plenty of in-room surprises.
QT Hotel, Sydney, Australia
The staff at this super cool five-star Sydney boutique hotel are ‘cast’ not hired and their outfits are worthy of a slick music video while the opulent design is rock star ready and the location reigns supreme. It is located next door to Sydney’s State Theatre which first opened in 1929 and has hosted music legends such as Prince, Shirley Bassey, Harry Connick Jr and Chris Isaak. The QT itself attracts creative guests who appreciate its Gothic- and Art Deco-influenced architecture. You may spot a star staying in one of the 200 guest suites or drinking champagne at the Gilt Lounge, which is popular for after-parties among the trendy set.
