There has been much speculation over the story being The Eagles' hit 'Hotel California', largely around whether or not it is an actual place, or simply a metaphor.

The title track from the album of the same name was released back in 1977, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in that same year. It's widely considered one of the most iconic rock songs ever made and came in at 49 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 2004 list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

There is a real establishment in Mexico called Hotel California, however, it is not what is referenced in the song, even though guests have long been encouraged to believe otherwise.

In fact, in 2017 the Eagles filed a lawsuit against the owners for perpetuating the myth that the band was in any way associated with the hotel, which sold T-shirts and other merchandise bearing the name.

So, what is the real meaning behind the title of Eagles' enigmatic anthem?

First, let's look at the history of how the song came to be. Don Felder first developed the song's instrumental part while staying in a rented house in Malibu Beach. He used a 12-string guitar and a drum machine on a four-track recording deck.

Don Henley and Glenn Frey were then each given a copy of the demo, and soon began conceptualising lyrics together. According to Felder, the jumping-off point came from memories of driving into Los Angeles at nighttime.
