The new LaFayette Hotel & Club Club brings guests on a creative exploration that features an ode to
the original “city within a city” hotel concept moving beyond a one-dimensional space that
exudes well curated affluence with aspirational style. Accessible luxury can be found in each of
139 rooms featuring custom designed linens and a thoughtfully curated in-room bar amenity featuring a comprehensive spirit and cocktail set-upby venerable cocktail expert Paul McGee. The property has 14 different room types including suites, and townhouses
Guestrooms are rooted in traditional Victorian, Tudor, and Gothic details. Rich saturations of color, texture, and pattern immerse guests in a fanciful experience that is much more than just a place of rest.
A longstanding symbol of San Diego’s history located in the city’s North Park neighborhood, the
LaFayette Hotel & Club is a two and half-acre Colonial-style hotel built in 1946 by young
entrepreneur Larry Imig as a haven for young Hollywood hosting Ava Gardner, Lana Turner,
Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope. Shortly after it opened, the property was purchased by Conrad
Hilton and changed ownership several times in the following decades and was maintained with
varying degrees of effort and investment.
Design elements such as wallpaper ceilings, saturated wall tones, fabric draped canopy beds,and burled bar carts read as functional sculpture or art. The Suze Suites that surround the outdoor pool follow the same irreverent maximalism of the main hotel rooms but with more playful elements such as layered patterns and bright textiles, gathered bed skirts, ornate lighting, and a mirrored bar cart. The Townhouses on the propertyare in a Spanish Mission style with whimsical, bright textiles and distinct furniture juxtaposed alongside more classical elements of textured flooring and wrought iron details.
