You can stay in a Queen's Gambit-inspired hotel room – with chess pieces on the ceiling

FANS of the Netflix series The Queen's Gambit can stay at a hotel room themed around the show.

The 60s-style room will even have chess pieces on the ceiling, imitating the main character's chess hallucinations in the show.

The room has been launched by boutique hotel and contemporary art museum 21c Museum Hotel Lexington in Kentucky.

The show, based on the 1983 novel of the same name, is mainly filmed in the state.

Called The Harmon Room, named after the main character Beth Harmon, it is decorated with mid-century furniture and decor similar to the many hotel rooms that Beth stays in during her life.

Chess fans will also be pleased, with copies of Chess Review magazine in the room, chess-themed wallpaper as well as a chess set to play with, which you can buy.

Along with complimentary “Lex Liquors” tote bag, guests can stay at the room for $234 (£172) per night.

The local tourism board has also created a Queen’s Gambit Guide for landmarks and filming locations for guests.

According to Netflix, The Queen’s Gambit was the most watched limited series in the company’s history, with more than 62 million viewers.

The series follows a young orphaned girl, played by Anya Taylor-Joy, who is found to be a chess prodigy while developing a dependency on tranquillisers at an early age.

It also features Love Actually star Thomas Brodie-Sangster who plays Benny – a chess player who becomes one of Beth’s opponents – and Harry Potter star Harry Melling.

Other themed hotel rooms include a Buddy the Elf-inspired room, which launched in time for Christmas.

A Terry's Chocolate Orange room, a Harry Potter dorm room and a James Bond-inspired room are just some of the other weird places you can stay.
