"Hotel California" is a song from the rock band Eagles' album of the same name released in 1976. The song describes a "hotel that you can never leave". It resembles a story of a tired traveller trapped in a nightmarish hotel that seemed pretty nice at first glance.
Some people think that the song figuratively describes hedonism and self-destruction of music in Hollywood. The idea is that Hollywood is like a luxury hotel that at first welcomes its guests and then lures them into a trap by means of trickery and cunningness. There are more trivial versions as well, such as the one suggesting that a prison or a psychiatric hospital is meant by the "hotel".
