Surprised with a one night stay at this beautiful hotel for my 50th birthday- I have never enjoyed myself as much as I did these past 24 hours. What an absolutely beautiful property and staff! I can't wait to return.. My room had a breath taking view that was even better when the charming wait staff, Jonathan brought up a... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations. The décor was clean and modern, the staff treated us as if we were the most high end of customers. An excellent restaurant and bar is located on the main level, with complimentary towel service as you walk just a few steps to the beach. We were greeted with complimentary cocktails, and our room was... More

My husband and I stayed at Tower 23 one night when we were down from San Francisco. The hotel is in a great location right on the beach, and it's got a lively scene at night, but the quality of service and facilities wasn't as high as I would have expected for the price. We booked a king room with... More

What a nice surprise. Super clean, contemporary hotel. The staff were all very friendly and the restaurant JRDN located in the hotel (outside seating with views of the ocean) was superb! Sunday Brunch is a must if you plan on staying thru a weekend. This was my first time to PB. What a great little area this is. The hotel... More

Hotel location, condition, service was amazing. We stayed for two nights, ordered breakfast on the deck, had lunch at the restaurant, and used the valet car service. Valets were always very quick, and food service was outstanding. Food was great too. We would stay at this location over and over again. The hotel is located on the ocean coast, and... More

We stayed here for five days in February and loved it. Our third floor surf pad room gave us an awesome view of the Pacific. Even though we had a balcony, the second floor sun deck was definitely the place to relax and watch people walk by on the boardwalk. Happy hour prices apply to the deck, and there was... More
