Hard Days Night Hotel has named the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust’s R Charity as its chosen charity of the year.
R Charity, which is currently fundraising on behalf of Merseyside’s largest hospital, aims to raise £10 million towards the redevelopment of the site.
In hopes of aiding the charity, the award-winning Beatles inspired hotel, which was acquired by global travel giant Millennium Hotels & Resorts last summer, will offer its support to the initiative ahead of the new hospital’s opening in 2017.
Senior Vice President Operations for Millennium Hotels & Resorts in Europe, Clive Harrington said: “After meeting with the redevelopment staff at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, we were instantly impressed by the plans for the upcoming overhaul of the site and its landmark £335 million redevelopment. The team at the hotel are thrilled to assist the work of R Charity ahead of the new hospital's opening; their collective efforts will help aid R Charity to provide comfort and the very best care to patients in the hospital.
“The new hospital will share common ground with hotels in that it will strive to provide each and every in-patient with an individual room with an en-suite bathroom. Upon completion, the site is set to be England’s largest all single-patient room hospital. At present, R Charity is fundraising to fit each room with Freeview TVs in addition to reclining chairs, allowing relatives to stay over with their loved ones.”
R Charity aims to ensure that the redevelopment of the hospital goes beyond even the NHS promise of care by investing in the latest high-technology equipment for diagnosis and treatment, together with offering comforts and conveniences for both patients and families.
The new hospital will be built next to the existing site and will house 646 beds with a 40-bed Critical Care Unit, 18 operating theatres and one of the North West’s largest emergency departments.
Chief Executive of the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust Aidan Kehoe said: “We’re thrilled to receive the support of Hard Days Night Hotel in the run up to the opening of our world-class new Royal in 2017. We’ve made excellent progress so far, and hope that by working alongside the hotel, we can continue to transform the way in which we care for our patients long into the future.”

Millennium Hotels & Resorts welcomed Sir Peter Blake to Hard Days Night Hotel for Liverpool Biennial’s launch of Dazzle, 2016, a limited edition silkscreen print created by the artist.
More than 70 guests gathered at the artist’s namesake Blakes Restaurant, located in the heart of the award-winning hotel which was acquired by the global travel giant last summer, to witness the unveiling of his limited edition print.
Sir Peter Blake is internationally renowned for his famous works including the design of The Beatles’ iconic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover in 1967.
Senior Vice President Operations for Millennium Hotels & Resorts in Europe, Clive Harrington said: “We are thrilled to welcome Sir Peter Blake to the hotel, and the restaurant named after him. Sir Peter’s links with The Beatles date back to his Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover design, and so it’s rewarding to combine the hotel’s inimitable Beatles legacy with his current work. We are proud to join forces with Liverpool Biennial to continue supporting the cultural diversity of the city of Liverpool.”
Located on North John Street, Hard Days Night Hotel became Millennium Hotels & Resorts’ 24th property within Europe in August 2015. The ‘Fab Four’-star hotel situated within close proximity to the world famous Cavern Club, where The Beatles performed more than 290 times, boasts 110 guest rooms and is renowned for its impressive interior and originality.
The latest in a series of limited editions by artists who have worked with Liverpool Biennial, Dazzle, 2016 relates to Blake’s 2015 commission, Everybody Razzle Dazzle, for which he transformed the Mersey Ferry Snowdrop into a moving artwork. It features a number of symbols that regularly appear in Blake's art: a star, a target and a rainbow.
Sir Peter Blake said: “It has been fascinating to explore the historic practice of dazzle camouflage painting. This new print references both my early work and my recent dazzle commission, and I am proud to help Liverpool Biennial continue its impressive record of working with artists to create ambitious and challenging new work.”
Sally Tallant, Director of Liverpool Biennial, said: “We are grateful to Sir Peter Blake for creating this incredible print for our Limited Editions series. It has been a great privilege to work with him on the dazzle ferry commission, which has become a much-loved icon for the city.”
Hard Days Night Hotel has added to its ever-expanding trophy cabinet having been crowned ‘Luxury Grand Hotel of the Year’.
Following its acquisition by Millennium Hotels & Resorts in August of last year, the Beatles inspired hotel was selected by the Luxury Travel Guide Awards due to its outstanding reputation, premium amenities and high standards of customer service.
General Manager of Hard Days Night Hotel Mike Dewey said: “We are thrilled to have received this prestigious accolade from the Luxury Travel Guide Awards and built on our global acclaim. It is all the more rewarding as it follows the hotel’s welcome into the Millennium Hotels & Resorts international family.
“The awards certainly represent the pinnacle of hospitality achievement and champion the best in the industry, and it’s great to be commended for our efforts in continuing to heighten guest experiences. Since the hotel became a part of the Millennium Hotels & Resorts brand, we have combined our core ethos to deliver genuine hospitality to a global audience.”
In 2015, the hotel achieved ‘Top Rated’ status in the LateRooms.com ‘Simply The Guest Awards’ and received a TripAdvisor ‘Certificate of Excellence’ for the fourth consecutive year. Following the acquisition by Millennium Hotels & Resorts on August 19 2015, whereby the venue became the hotel group’s 24th property located within the UK and Europe, the ‘Fab Four’-star venue was also named ‘Hotel of the Year’ in the Work Hard, Play Hard Awards.
Mike added: “Liverpool is certainly a destination of choice for worldwide leisure and corporate travellers, and to be recognised as a leading place to stay within the city is fantastic. The hotel itself reflects Liverpool’s famous cultural and historic ties to The Beatles, an element that continues to attract and entice guests from across the globe.
“In line with our partnership between Millennium Hotels & Resorts, we are excited to further our reach and attract more overseas visitors, as a result of our critical acclaim and worldwide recognition.”
