Hilton Releases Third Installment of New Video Series 'Room 702' on 50th Anniversary of Bed-In for Peace
Fifty years ago today, on March 25, 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their iconic Bed-In for Peace in Room 702 at the Hilton Amsterdam. The couple turned their honeymoon into a weeklong promotion of peace and invited media to learn more about their peaceful protest.
To commemorate the anniversary, De Roos and Hilton Amsterdam General Manager Roberto Payer discuss how Room 702's message of peace and understanding continues to live on.
This video is the third installment of a new limited video series from Hilton titled "Room 702." The series takes viewers inside the worlds of people inspired by the spirit of Room 702 who continue to bring that spirit of peace and understanding to life today.
