Fast and free wifi. No fitness center and no pool but a sundeck. Very helpful and nice staff. The breakfast is very good (not included in the... More

Hubby and I had a short trip to San Diego for business, so we booked a few extra days to visit Pacific Beach. We'd been to SD before and done all the touristy things, so we wanted something a little more laid-back. Tower 23 was the perfect fit - stylish, fun, close to restaurants, and best of all, right on... More

My friends and I stayed @tower 23 for the weekend. The hotel was beautiful and in prime location on pacific beach. When we first arrived there was a small hiccup with our room type. We booked on Expedia for 2 queens with a ocean view. They had us booked for 1 King. They were sold out and all they could... More

We stayed at Tower 23 this weekend for the first time...and loved it! We are in San Diego often and this will be our new preferred hotel. The location is perfect (directly on the beach), the rooms are spacious and very clean, the service is excellent, and the food was delicious! It is a small hotel and caters a wide... More

We discovered Tower 23 several years ago and return for a week every year. Its location on the Pacific Beach boardwalk provides ocean views and breezes. The evening and weekend vibe in the bar and on the patio puts a smile on our faces. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, competent and helpful. The restaurant is very good but must be... More

First, there is nothing bad about the hotel itself. Nothing. It's clean, fresh, beautiful and I absolutely loved it. I stayed recently with my husband and two young kids. As our trip loomed closer I started to get nervous that it was too posh for a young family with kids. But decided to stay anyways. The pacific beach area is... More

Had a great stay! The patio deck view is awesome. Stayed 4 nights. All the staff were courteous and friendly. William and Rosio stood out though. They both took care of all of our needs and went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful stay. Thank you both! Have already recommended Tower 23 to friends and family.... More
