“Morrison Hotel” (sometimes referred to as Hard Rock Cafe from the title of the first side of the LP, whose second side is titled Morrison Hotel) is The Doors‘ fifth album. It was released in 1970.
The cover photo was taken at the actual Morrison Hotel in Los Angeles. The band asked the owners if they could photograph the hotel and they declined, so the band went inside when nobody was looking and took the photograph.
The rear cover features a photograph of the Hard Rock Cafe on East 5th Street in Los Angeles. The founders of the later and otherwise unrelated Hard Rock Cafe chain used the name, having seen it on the Doors’ album. The original cafe is no longer open for business.
