History of Hotel California
Hotel California isn’t just the name of a famous song by the Eagles; it’s also a beloved hotel in Todos Santos, a town near Los Cabos, Mexico. Hotel California was first opened by a Chinese immigrant who further helped to put Hotel California on the map by introducing ice to the town and serving the first cold beer. In the ‘60s and ‘70s, Hotel California was in a state of flux after changing ownership and became quite rundown until 2001, when a couple from Canada purchased the hotel and gave it an award-winning renovation.
