Step back in time.

Posted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: Good service. Good theme.
Cons: Ice in the ice machine.
Nice older hotel. Can imagine it in its hay day. Nice hotel at a reasonable price. We did have a plumbing problem but they changed our room to a bigger and better one without any issues.

Great hotel with unique history

Posted Dec 11, 2014
Pros: Staff, pool view, proximity to everything.
Cons: Pool could be heated. Bar/lounge could stay opened later...
Location: Zoo, Beaches, Restaurants, Bars, Sports Stadiums
Friendly staff. Close to everything in San Diego (Zoo, beaches, Stadium, Gas Lamp District). Pool view rooms offered great atmosphere. Pool was a little cold (it was December) but perhaps a heater or supplement would be a decent investment.

I didn't realise the history of the hotel until we arrived. A very unique and interesting place. Will definately go back.

Kalifornischer Vierziger Jahre Flair pur mit Seele

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Das La Fayette Hotel ist eine wunderbare Anlage im Vierziger Jahr Stil, der ohne zu übertreiben konsequent umgesetzt wird. Das von Jonny Weißmüller (Tarzan in den Vierzigern) designte zentrale AußenPool ist von den meisten Zimmern direkt zugänglich ist wie eine Insel, an der sich das Hotelleben abspielt. Es gibt schöne Außenbereiche, wo man sich den ganzen Tag zurückziehen kann - essen, lesen und die Seele baumeln lassen kann. Das Hotelrestaurant bietet solide kalifornische Küche zu vernünftigen Preisen. Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis.

Pros: Room amenities were exceptional. Real pillows and did not have to ask for extras. Comforters were nice change from scratchy blankets.
Location: hotel was located near sea world, san diego zoo, beaches
stayed with my daughter and 2yr old grandson. Very quiet hotel. Underground parking was a blessing. Hotel provided excellent directions for all local parks, beaches and restaurants. Front desk was very helpful and friendly. Room was exceptional.

Schönes Vintage-Hotel

Posted Nov 9, 2014
Pros: Charme der 50er, Zimmerkomfort, lage
Cons: Geräuschdämmung, Eintrittspreis für den Pool unverschämt teuer und ungerechtfertigt
Location: Nähe Universität mit guten Einkaufs- und Essmöglichkeiten
Kein 08/15 Hotel! Zimmer mit Charme der 50er, tolle Lobby (teils morbider Eindruck -> gewollt!), allerdings mit dem Nachteil, das manches eben doch alt ist. Wer ein etwas anderes Hotel in San Diego sucht, dass hier ist es. Pooleintrittspreis ist unverschämt!

It's always a good time staying at the Lafayette although they might want to upkeep with minor damage and carpet stains in the rooms
