Beatles In Seattle

On their first tour of America in the summer of 1964, the Beatles spent a memorable time at the Edgewood Inn on Seattle’s waterfront. 

A picture of them fishing out of the hotel room window remains an iconic mark of their mop-topped era.

They only chose the Edgewood because no other hotels would take them due to security concerns and increased insurance payments, according to the Seattle P-I.

But because the Beatles did stay there, many other bands followed including the Beach Boys to the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin — twice. (More Via king5.com.)

How did the Edgewater hotel at pier 67 on Elliott Bay get re-branded as the Edgewood?
