local lovin' [travel edition]

it has been quite a while since I've done a local lovin' post
but our recent vacation find in san diego cannot go unmentioned
we booked our room at the Lafayette Hotel the morning of our stay
for a whopping $59, and the reviews were good
but our experience was excellent

it is no surprise that the husband and I are lovers of all things from the past
and The Lafayette Hotel in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego
is really a great example of why
the hotel has recently been undergoing some major renovations
and I loved when staying there how they displayed the hotel's history for guests to see
in fact back in the day it was frequented by the likes of Bob Hope
not bad for us nerds for all things old and glamourous
the neighborhood was pretty simple
near major San Diego attractions like the Zoo & Balboa Park
but the "main drag" just had a great feel the husband & I couldn't get enough of
if only they made signs like these nowadays
and I would be an even happier camper

So if you are ever in the area, I would highly suggest this place.  
for couples I would ask for a room by the pool
(we just got insanely lucky!)
and families, they have larger rooms & bungalows that would be a great fit for more than two
