In the summer of 1963, the famous rock pop band The Beatles moved from Liverpool to London, and the President Hotel became their temporary home before they moved to Mayfair. The inspiration behind the design for the hotels interior décor arose from The Beatle’s stay, and you will also notice some striking black and white photos of the band around the hotel.
Many of the 523 guest rooms overlook Russell Square, with the BT Tower and the British Museum’s spectacular glass domed roof peering out in the distance.
