Real life Hotel California sued by the Eagles

Legendary rock band Eagles has filed a lawsuit accusing a hotel in Mexico of trademark infringement. 

The lawsuit, filed in California, alleges that the Mexican hotel has falsely led consumers, including US tourists, to believe that it is associated with the band and inspired its most famous song, Hotel California.

“Multiple online reviews make clear that U.S. consumers who visit the Todos Santos Hotel and buy Defendants’ merchandise do, in fact, believe that the Todos Santos Hotel is associated with the Eagles, which is not the case,” states the lawsuit. The band is seeking an injunction to stop the hotel from using the trademark or implying a connection to the group. The band is also seeking all related profits, plus damages and relief. 

The Hotel California is located in Todos Santos, in Baja Califonia, Mexico.

Los Angeles-based law firm Loeb & Loeb are advising the Eagles.
