The Lafayette's 70th Anniversary

Friday, July 1st, 2016 from 6-10pm

Join us as we celebrate The Lafayette's rich history and how it escaped demolition plans to be turned into a parking lot, and instead became a historic landmark! 

This event is FREE to the public as a THANK YOU for the last 70 years of support.

Make History

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Become immortalized as part of the hotel's history by purchasing a commemorative tile. You can decorate these tiles on Friday, July 1st with your name, business, etc. and they will be built into the hotel as a unique display. Alternatively, we can also label them for you. If you can't make it to the party, we'll mail it out to you with an envelope with prepaid postage.

Limited quantity available.

Please contact david@lafayettehotelsd.com or purchase your tile here.
