It's been busy at HOTEL CALIFORNIA lately, first here's a little history, then read about what's been going on so far this year...

HOTEL CALIFORNIA HISTORY:  In 1947 Hotel California was founded by a Chinese immigrant, Mr. Wong.  In order to appear more Mexican, Wong changed his name to Don Antonio Tabasco, but the plan backfired and he soon became known as “El Chino” (The Chinese Man). 

In the 1950’s “El Chino”, for the first time ever in Todos Santos, brought ice from La Paz and Hotel California’s restaurant and bar served the only cold beer in town.

In 2001, a Canadian designer John Stewart purchased the legendary property.  While maintaining the funky charm, Stewart used bold colors and unique artifacts to masterfully renovate it into an award winning boutique hotel.

Dave DeWitt, “The Pope of Peppers” stopped by the Hotel California one recent afternoon and went fishing with Chef Dany, and his son.  We ended up with 33 lbs of cleaned filets, and decided why not throw a party?  Once again Santo Vino was host; this time what would best be described as a fish-fiesta!
