The major plus of this hotel is the proximity to the beach. The hotel is most definitely overrated and overpriced. The breakfast was cheap in comparison with room rates. The area is def beyond average, with run down buildings and mid range restaurants. The ladies at the front desk, came across as robots, displaying no character. No eye contact was...

We loved the beach location of this boutique hotel. Having a beach view and a balcony was the best. Easy to walk to many places to eat and shop. My teen daughter's favorite two stores are right next door. Helpful staff. Fast valet. JRDN restaurant on site was very good for a fine dining meal. Nice beachy colors, modern decor....

This is a cool, welcoming, well run and very well located hotel. It's well worth paying for a "surf" room with sea views - ours was on the upper floor, I can't think there's a better view in the hotel. The sun deck is a great place to relax and enjoy the views in a relatively wind-protected area. Everyone was...

Very comfortable room in a great location right in the heart of Pacific Beach. We had a great view of Crystal Pier from our balcony (partial ocean view room). Beach access is within feet of the hotel and they provide towels and chairs at no charge. Bike rentals are free- you can bike all the way to Ocean Beach on...

Great location on the beachfront. We had an ocean view room which was worth the extra. Lots to do around there but as the weather can be changeable it was good to have nice surroundings to fall back in. We used the sun deck when it was too windy on the beach. Had breakfast in the restaurant and repeated the...

Tower23 is another one of those "boutique" hotels that was likely a low-to-mid level chain in an earlier life, which received a West Elm upgrade to all the furniture, better mattresses, and a cool-ish bar in exchange for 3x room rates. If you like Pacific Beach, and the ability to shout at people on the boardwalk from your room is...

When visiting San Diego, my husband and I met a friend here. We sat in the casual dining area. The service was good. We were able to watch the sunset. I ordered the "eggs and bacon" which was a creative version. It was braised pork with an egg and hollandaise sauce. The pork was juicy and tender. The flavor of...

Still the stylish place to stay in San Diego. Stunning right on ocean location. Large modern rooms with balconies overlooking the beach. Some reviews have said the rooms were getting tired and in need of an update - this was definitely not the case. There are few places in SoCal where you can turn in and be lulled to sleep...

On the last night of our second visit to Tower23, we decided there was no reason to ever consider staying somewhere else in San Diego. The location in PB is excellent with beach, biking, walking and water activities all nearby. The hotel and staff were awesome, always friendly and helpful. We love hanging out on the tower deck, as it's...

Our week at Tower 23 could not have been better! The staff was wonderful, the bed was comfortable, and we loved the deck! Many evenings were spent outside watching the beautiful sunsets around the fire pit. On my birthday a plate of treats were brought to our room with a birthday card. This will definitely be our place to stay...
