Cincinnati (AP) -- The long and winding road has ended for a Cincinnati hotel where the Beatles once stayed.
The Vernon Manor also played host to Presidents Lyndon Johnson and John F. Kennedy and was seen in the 1989 best picture oscar winner "Rain Man."
The 177-room hotel closed Tuesday after 85 years.
In a statement earlier this month, the Vernon Manor's owners said they were "evaluating options" for its future.
Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory is vowing to fight any effort to tear the building down.
The mayor was one of the hotel's last guests, staying there its last two nights because he said he wanted to pay tribute to its workers.
The Beatles stayed in room 624 during a 1966 tour, and the hotel made over the suite as a tribute to the fab four.
