My wife & I have stayed here on our anniversary for the last 7 years and have ALWAYS been impressed with the service! This year was different - the main complaint stemming from a lack of communication at the check-in process. In the past, we could rely on the front desk paging us when our room is available. At 2:30,... More

Let me start by saying: I was a little high maintenance when I booked the room a few days in advance.I apologize, In a time crunch to reschedule a bachelorette party. I requested an early check in that couldn't be made quite as early as I had hoped (understandably) But the staff did everything and more to accommodate while we... More

Junior suite with jacuzzi, free bike rentals, fire pit on second floor balcony, directly across the beach and a friendly staff. In particular, my wife and I were pampered by the fire pit by Ivan, Rudy, and Chi. They were awesome. It was a great experience!

A great welcome awaits at Tower 23. From super fast organized valet to your in-room arrival cocktail. The service here is excellent. The hotel is very clean which is nice for a beach side residence and the rooms are large and bright. Treat yourself and take a 'surf pad' for the ultimate view come sunset but ask for it to... More

Cute room, convenient location. They were very accommodating of requests. Rudy and Ivan made sure we knew about the amenities like free bikes and beach stuff. Both of them were quick to get us anything we needed and gave us great recommendations on things to do. They also made sure we didn't forget our complimentary drinks!

Upon arriving we were greeted with real smiles. It was apparent they liked their jobs and not that it was just a day at work! Not just one employee but a lot. Two guys that really made a great impression was Allen and Ivan. Always asking if everything was good or if we needed anything. This hotel was definitely meant... More

Originally booked a hotel just down the way but it looked nothing like the photographs provided on their site. Under construction and filthy dirty so we cancelled the room and looked along the same road to find a place. We came upon this hotel by accident and from the looks of it we thought it would be out of our... More

We flew into San Diego and spent one night. I researched several hotels before deciding on this one. It was pricey but definitely worth the full ocean view. The location on the Beach is just slightly north of Crystal Pier and what I feel is nicer /wider part of the boardwalk. The room itself was very modern. The balcony overlooked... More

We had 3 memorable days at a tower 23. Our bedroom overlooked the beach so we had a perfect view in the evening of watching the sun going down over the sea. The concierge were very hopeful and nothing was too much trouble. It had a very busy bar area and a fabulous restaurant. There was no pool but felt... More
