Hotels That Rock: Music-Inspired Sleeps

Hotels That Rock: Music-Inspired Sleeps

A playlist to dream to.

 ?Rock stars and hotel rooms go together like televisions and open windows—famously. The same creative energies that spark destruction also inspire design-driven sleeps, and for the music lover, that?s a tune to book in to.

Hotel Pelirocco>Hotel Pelirocco (10 Regency Sq., Brighton, +44-(0)1273-327-055; taps Brighton?s tumultuous history of mods and rockers, bringing a saucy sensibility to its 19 music-themed rooms, like the vinyl collection and dark golds and deep purples of the Motown room, or the punky Britgasm of the Pretty Vacant Sex Pistols?themed room. Others give a nod to Lee Scratch Perry, Skint Records, Leigh Bowery, and even Dolly Parton.

Hard Days Night HotelMore focused, the mono-themedHard Days Night Hotel (Central Buildings, N. John St., Liverpool, +44-(0)151-236-1964; pays tribute to the Fab Four with 110 rooms in the heart of Liverpool?s ?Beatles? Quarter.? Gutted from an 1884 building adjacent to the Cavern Club, rooms feature custom Beatles-inspired artwork and marry elegance with a pop sensibility that wisely eschews camp for class (except, perhaps, the all-white grand piano in the Lennon Suite).

Kate's Lazy MeadowMeanwhile, on this side of the Atlantic,Kate?s Lazy Meadow (5191 Rt. 28, Mt. Tremper, NY, 845-688-7200; embraces kitsch wholeheartedly with its take on a Catskills motor lodge, a self-described "cabin fever fantasy" from Kate Pierson of the B-52s. Rock out in a vintage Airstream trailer or bask in the groovy mid-century d?cor of color-soaked cabins.

nHow HotelSimilarly over-the-top, the Karim Rashid?designednhow Hotel (Stralauer Allee 3, Berlin, +49-(0)30-290-2990; presents a glossed-up vision of the music lifestyle, all bright pinks, blues, greens, and lacquered fiberglass, like a space station on the banks of the Spree River. Custom digipop artwork and carpets practically pulse with sound-wave patterns. Fitting, as the property offers two state-of-the-art recording studios and Gibson Guitars as room service.
