Nobody suspected that there was a real hotel actually in Mexico since the 1950s, and caused a long debate between one party with the other.
You will remember the lyrics written by The Eagles' vocalist, Don Henley, who describes the abstraction of the hangout spot in America at a time in those years.
"Welcome to the Hotel California ...That singer of the famous musical group, The Eagles, quotes CNN Indonesia, January 29, and still sounds occasionally when you go to a drink in downtown.
Such a lovely place,
Such a lovely face ... "
The commotion had occurred, the case of the struggle for the name of Hotel California occurred, regardless there is no one knows, if a similar hotel is present and operating in Mexico.
At first, the music group, The Eagles said that the title of the song is copyrighted and accused the California Hotel of imitating it without official permission.
There is no other way but to find a way out to agree to both parties to the dispute, the hotel owner, Hotel California Baja LLC, stated that it was allowed to continue to use the name Hotel California.
