Since we just had 2 nights in San Diego, and were looking at places close to the zoo, I decided to book at Lafayette. It seemed reasonable, although I had read mixed reviews about the place. I had booked two rooms, but only one room had refrigerator and microwave. Had to carry our luggage on a few stairs - even if you take the elevator, you have to pull your luggage over a short flight of stairs that leads to the rooms. The appearance of the hotel kind of inflated our expectations, and hence the experience wasn't anyway close. The location of the hotel didn't come across well in terms of safety.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1946, the Lafayette has been the site of historical glamour, and offers a unique change from a typical hotel experience. Among its famous guests were Bob Hope, Lana Turner, Ava Gardner and Betty Grable. Inside, the Mississippi Ballroom took center stage where Hollywood’s stars came to dance the night away. Conveniently located to all shopping, entertainment and business areas, the historic Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows is, indeed, the best lodging choice in San Diego. ... more less
