(Newser) – Move over, Penny Lane: Liverpool’s latest draw is the Hard Day's Night, a Fab Four-styled hotel that boasts 110 rooms and two swanky penthouses near the fabled Cavern Club, the BBC reports. The hotel also displays rare band photos and art by Beatles painter Shannon. “The bookings are already good,” the hotel’s manager said. “It didn’t take a whole lot of selling.”

In fact, "interest has been unbelievable. We have had calls from Brazil, Scandinavia and Russia,” he added. Thanks to the hotel's wedding license, patrons can also get married in its chapel amid pics of the Liverpool quartet.  But at £650 per night for the Lennon or McCartney suite, patrons may be humming "Money" before "You Can't Buy Me Love."
