Amazing Place!

Reviewed 11 january, 2022

I cant begin to tell you how much I love this place! Starting with the manager Joseph. He was professional, polite and fun. We had a balcony room which was the highlight of the stay as well as the pool. The rooms were a little outdated but thats because they're trying to keep the history of the place. Definately a go to when Im in town.

All aspects of the event coordination went perfectly. All staff were pleasant, professional and excelled at what they did. Kudos to Catering Team (Lisa, Tawn & Mialani), as well as Cass night of. Room looked beautiful, food was delicious and our group of 150 guests enjoyed the evening.

AMAZING TRIP

Reviewed 5 december, 2021

Hi I’m Chantel and this was my first solo trip that I ever took. I was nervous because I landed early but Crystal (staff) was so kind and generous to let me check in early. The whole experience was top notch! The pool is amazing and they have some bomb drinks that they serve poolside. I loved the restaurant there too! The burger, calamari, and fries are so good to order. The Moscow mules are too! The staff from Vivian to Joseph really made sure I was okay. I’m sure they’ll do what’s in their power to make y’all okay too. Consider this review when staying here. You won’t regret it.

I was in San Diego to visit family and decided to stay at the Lafayette. The history of the hotel drew me in. I made a mistake with my reservation and when I called to correct it the staff was so helpful. There are a lot of positive things about this hotel. The secured parking is great. There is a charge for it, but I didn't think it was unreasonable. The lobby of the hotel is bright and welcoming. The restaurant was great. We had a breakfast and a dinner there and both meals were fresh and delicious. The wait staff at the restaurant were also quick and helpful. The pool area is beautiful! Our room was where I have some hesitation. It appears that our sleeping area had been updated in the past few years and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is in need of a remodel. It appeared original and had some issues with very dim light and a shower area that needed some ventilation. There was some mold on the ceiling of the shower room. I believe that the hotel is working to update rooms. I really did enjoy my stay and would visit again but would inspect the bathroom as soon as I checked in.
