Plaza Hotel – Part 2

Beatle-mania struck the United States in full force in the 1960’s. Starting with their first American appearance in New York City in 1964. They stayed at the Plaza Hotel during this time and made appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, gave a press conference and partied at the Peppermint Lounge and the Playboy Club. During their stay two teenage girls managed to sneak themselves up to the twelfth floor where they were staying in a gift box. During their press conference, which was held in the Baroque room, they were presented with a pair of gold records for their album Meet the Beatles and their single “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”.
