We know how to throw an epic pool party and have been doing so for decades. Since its inception in the 1940s the Lafayette Hotel has been offering pool cabanas for day use or private celebrations in San Diego. Playful and as unpretentious as the California sun, our terazzo tiled Weissmuller pool is a place where you can sit back and relax with a hand-crafted cocktail or dive right in and make a splash. Those new to San Diego or just visiting for the week may be interested in the nostalgic past of our well-known pool deck. Designed by five-time gold medal Olympian and former Tarzan, Johnny Weissmuller, our 300,000-gallon pool has been a hot-spot for Hollywood elites. It also served as a training facility for San Diego native Florence Chadwick before her record-breaking swim across the English Channel. Today you can catch musical performances, various parties hosted by SoCal DJ’s, rent a cabana for the day or book the unforgettable venue for your private poolside party. San Diego pool cabanas give you an alternative to the beach. Here you know the water is clear and the drinks keep coming from the poolside bar. Locals can take advantage of the Swim Club and receive special discounts for annual membership fees. Poolside cabana rentals can accommodate up to 25 guests with food and beverage packages. If you’re looking for a truly authentic San Diego hotel pool experience, just swim on up. We provide the place and your excuse for a fun day at a poolside cabana is on us!
