NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hard Days Night Hotel, situated on North John Street in the heart of Liverpool's increasingly popular Cavern Quarter, will now become Millennium Hotels and Resorts' (MHR) 24th property within the UK and Europe; adding to the diversity of the hotel group, which operates a dynamic and impressive worldwide portfolio.

CEO of Millennium Hotels and Resorts Aloysius Lee said: "Liverpool is a leading tourist destination that continues to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors annually on a mass global scale. Having been crowned Capital of Culture in 2008, the city is twinned culturally and economically with Shanghai and is home to the world famous Liverpool Football Club. The city continues to maintain its prominent stance by investing in an array of forward-thinking regeneration projects, while firmly retaining its Beatles legacy.

"Hard Days Night Hotel offers a Beatles experience like no-other and we are confident that our guests, particularly from countries including China, USA, Canada and Europe, will be excited by the choice of this latest acquisition. Furthermore, the 'Fab Four' and Liverpool are very popular to both the North American and Asian markets.

"We are thrilled to welcome Hard Days Night Hotel and more than 150 team members into the MHR global family."

"Hard Days Night Hotel is a first class hotel that continues to exceed guests' expectations and we look forward to widening our global reputation by maximizing the distribution channels effectively run by MHR and taking the property to the next level."
