Great concept, but...
I really appreciate what they are trying to do at the Hotel Lafayette, but I would probably not stay there again. The hotel in its heyday was amazing fir sure, and they try to highlight the past in the hotel today, but unfortunately the hotel's location probably hinders that. Although it is within 20 minutes (by car) to most of the important San Diego sites, the hotel feels out of the way. and while there were a variety of guests staying at the hotel, I was uncomfortable when I was asked by one guest if I, "had any weed," and then saw the equivalent of Jersey Shore partying by the younger guests at the pool. The restaurant and bar were very good, and our stay was generally comfortable. The pool did not look clean, and we decided not to go in, and this is supposedly the big attraction. When we were checking in, the pool was closed because some was bleeding in the water, and later they changed the story. Maybe we just had bad luck with some of the other guests, but I think it is fair to warn others what kind of "scene" they may be getting into.

Not relaxing
We paid extra to get a room that had French doors facing the pool, so we could walk right out. We had envisioned relaxing by the pool. A child threw a ball at the (glass) French doors multiple times, and the pool was full of children for our entire stay. We love kids!! Just not when we're trying to relax.
