The inspiration for the name of the song , however, was not a real -life hotel , Eagles lead singer Don Henley once told Rolling Stone. ‘ Hotel California ‘ was our interpretation of the high life in Los Angeles,” Henley said.

The song is about “excess in America” While there have been many theories that contemplate what the song represents, the Eagles’ band members have revealed in multiple interviews that the true meaning behind ” Hotel California ” is a commentary on the hedonism and self-indulgence of America.
Colitas (little tails) may refer to: A slang term in Hispanic culture for the buttocks. A slang term in Mexico for the buds of the cannabis plant.
The song isn’t actually about an insane asylum ; there is no asylum anywhere in California or even the entire United States by the name of Hotel California . Some still insist that the Hotel California is a nickname for the Camarillo State Hospital in Camarillo, California .
The lyrics of the song have been given various interpretations by fans and critics alike, the Eagles themselves described the song as their “interpretation of the high life in Los Angeles”. It’s about drug addiction. Do yes, kind of a horror story No it’s not.
Don Felder said that it was the name of a flower that grows wild along Route 66 on the way to California. “The colitas is a plant that grows in the desert that blooms at night, and it has this kind of pungent, almost funky smell,” he said. Supposedly it can also be a “Mexican slang” for the tip of the marijuana plant .
