Spend the Night in Lennon's Hotel Room
Perhaps the most famous hotel room in the world is the one in the Amsterdam Hilton where John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent their honeymoon in 1969.
Room 702 was the site of their famous "bed-in" where the couple opened the doors to the press and conducted interviews for seven straight days. Strangely, the Hilton has never made a big PR fuss about it. It wasn't until 1991 that they finally renovated the room (with inspiration from Ono herself) and turned it into the "John and Yoko Suite."
As Conde Nast Traveller points out in their (offline) March 2007 issue, however, it is "not a replica of the original suite; rather a reflection of the various places where John and Yoko lived." Nonetheless, how cool would it be to spend the night there?
The price of history is not cheap, however. A single night in the room costs nearly $1,600.
