Hotel California Todos Santos, Baja
Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
For years, day-trippers coming from Los Cabos to Todos Santos have flocked to the Hotel California, hoping to see “mirrors on the ceilings and pink champagne on ice.” Don Henley burst that bubble a while back when he denied any connection between the Eagles and the hotel.
That’s too bad. He should stop by next time he’s down here. Once he tours the grounds and samples the gourmet fare served in La Coronela Restaurant, he just might change his tune. John and Debbie Stewart, the new owners (note: John Stewart passed away on August 31, 2006) of the Hotel California have recreated this former eyesore into an architectural, artistic and culinary masterpiece. For John Stewart, whose previous career was designing restaurants and office buildings, this project was the dream of a lifetime.
John Stewart indulged his passion for brilliant, bold colors, colonial Mexican architecture and furniture, metal and glass sculptures, exotic plants and art. Truly a celebration of the senses, the Hotel California explodes with purples, reds, hot pinks, oranges, periwinkles, pulsating shades of green and golden yellows. The old blends gracefully with the new, as original tile floors and 100-year-old beams merge with the best modern Mexico can offer.
The hotel is only a 15-minute walk from Tortugueros Las Playitas Beach, is a low-key hotel and has landscaped gardens.
Try their special tequila, a hand crafted premium reposado tequila with time honored traditions, named after the hotel.
