Planning a wedding in San Diego
You only have to step into our lobby to feel the romance of our legendary San Diego hotel. A wall mural greets you with celebrity icons of days past. Refurbished rooms hold on to old charm and everywhere you look there is a modernized hint of nostalgia, the type of a once in a lifetime romance that only Hollywood could bring. It’s the sort of place that when true love finds you in real life, you’ll want to trust us to help you celebrate your union at the Lafayette Hotel.
Talk to any seasoned San Diego local and rumors will abound about the big-bands that played in our downstairs Mississippi Ballroom throughout the years. Crooners sang out melodically on stage while people jitterbugged on the dance floor well into the night. Today, the Mississippi Ballroom, our largest wedding venue, is outfitted with a stage with dramatic lighting and seating for up to 300.
If a smaller venue suits your wedding needs, our Conservatory adds elegantly executed whimsy to your affair. Upside down parasols in various colors cascade from the towering ceiling while natural light filters in through glass doors that open to our veranda.
Our Louisiana Ballroom offers the perfect transition from outdoors to in. Set against our private courtyard, French doors allow up to 110 guests to move seamlessly from your outdoor wedding ceremony to a lavishly set dining room.
If an outdoor celebration speaks to you, we offer two contemporary wedding venues that embody the spirit of San Diego. Choose to host your big day on the terrazzo tiled terrace of our iconic Weissmuller pool or in the seclusion of our fanciful West Courtyard. The Lafayette Hotel’s famed Weissmuller pool, a favorite stopping place for Bob Hope and Eva Gardner, has been the scene of opulent receptions and pool parties for years. The West Courtyard offers a dreamy alternative with a life-size chess board floor and room for up to 150 guests.
