Writing credits for the song are shared by Don Felder, Don Henley and Glenn Frey. The Eagles’ original recording of the song features Henley singing the lead vocals and concludes with an extended section of electric guitar interplay between Felder and Joe Walsh.

“Hotel California” is the landmark Todos Santos hotel.  For years, day-trippers coming from Los Cabos have flocked to the Hotel California hoping to see “mirrors on the ceilings and pink champagne on ice.”  Although Don Henley has denied any connection between the Eagles and the hotel that hasn’t slowed down the interest or fascination in this fabled attraction.
