LONDON — Hotel guests may soon get the sense of an “octopus’s garden” and truly enjoy “golden slumbers,” as Abbey Road Studios has “come together” in an agreement with Fairmont Hotels and Resorts.
The studio, best known as the place where the Beatles recorded their last studio album of the same name, partnered with the global hotel chain to offer guests unique experiences such as behind-the-scenes studio tours, the chance to record a song and discounts on studio merchandise.
“Over the last few years, our music programming with EMI has been an exciting element many of our guests have really appreciated and enjoyed. To be expanding this initiative with such a recognized name in the recording industry is truly exciting,” said Brian Richardson, VP, Brand Marketing and Communications, Fairmont Hotels and Resorts.
The partnership extends Fairmont’s work with EMI Music, the owners of the iconic studio. The alliance already includes guest access to popular EMI artists through several channels, including the luxury hotel brand’s “Sounds of Fairmont” program. Supporting new and emerging artists, the program now extends to include special events at Abbey Road Studios.
And, borrowing experience gained from the reno of the Fairmont-managed Savoy, the hotel team will refurbish the Abbey Road Studios’ lounges, bringing the hotel’s style, luxury and elegance to the studio.
