The Hotel California is the title of a hit song by the band Eagles. In a sense, the song’s lyrics describe the atmosphere at hotels—a place where everything’s alright, and you can have an enjoyable stay. However, this hotel is not for everyone: it is a metaphor for an elusive goal that will never be reached.
The Eagles are a US-based rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1971. The group is best known for their hit song Hotel California from the album of the same name released in 1976. The band has sold over 150 million records worldwide and is considered one of the most successful bands to come out of America during the 1970s.
