The Historic Lafayette Hotel in North Park, San Diego


Stylish where it matters and affordable where it counts, The Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows in North Park, San Diego, is more than just a place to stay and see Southern California attractions. It’s a wingman you can count on, an adaptation of an earlier era, and an experience you look forward to.

The world has no shortage of traditional hotels. Sure, we’ve been around since 1946, but our idea of what a hotel should be hasn’t. We believe modern travel should be about flexibility, simplicity and exploration. If we were formal enough to write a mission statement, it would read like this: A centrally located San Diego hotel with a great atmosphere, great food, great people and great beds.

This approach influences everything we do. And most things we don’t. We want the Lafayette Hotel to be a place where you can be yourself, or reinvent yourself. That’s why it comes as no surprise when the Lafayette attracts thousands of travelers to San Diego and North Park every year. Free spirits, the suits, global nomads, couples, families, and parties of one, they stay because we share common ground. The huge pool probably doesn’t hurt either.

We also know San Diego culture. Imbedded within the vibrant North Park San Diego community renowned known for its exciting nightlife, shopping, dining, and exploding arts and music scene, The Lafayette Hotel & Swim Club redefines what it means to be a community minded hotel.
