We visited san diego all the way from Serbia. Gave this hotel a chance because the reviews are good, booked an oceanfront room and that was that. Upon arrival, we were greeted by amazing crew - not fake, but rather cool, down to earth and hip. They were young, vibrant and super friendly or should I say professional? Check in... More

Enjoy the hotel 23 restaurant for brunch. The best in PB hands down. Also, the valet guys Tony and Aaron always make us feel special when we pull up. They set a great tone. Thanks guys. Recommend it highly to all.

I've stayed here a bunch in the past but for some reason my name wasn't in system but Lorraine did an awesome job and gave me my returning guest rate! Staff is always great and JRDN restaurant is awesome too. Honestly, you can't beat the view of the Pacific and good happy hour at JRDN and good bars and restaurants... More

Nice hotel with excellent location and views. I was there on a weeknight and it was very quiet. Other positives: great pillows, nice jacuzzi tub, super comfy robes, nice staff, easy valet. No significant negatives.

Aaron and Tony were extremely helpful with our wedding party valet services this past weekend. They were very efficient and prompt to all of our needs. We will definitely spread the word about this hotel and their valet services!

As my title suggests this is a must as your treated to the best sunset view each evening. The rooms are spacious enough and have a comfy bed in fact the pillows were that good my wife thought they must have been made from magic clouds. :) . The location is great as your just a few steps from the... More

Stayed in surf pad during holidays. Great room, had a wonderful view of the ocean! The weather was amazing! Checked in early, room was ready. Alan brought up free cocktails, they were delicious. Ryan and Andrew were very helpful at front desk with free bike rentals and even a complimentary dvd player for room. In the morning, Greg recommended Cafe... More

We stayed at Tower 23 over the Xmas holiday and had a great experience. We were greated with gingerbread cookies and milk delivered to our room and really enjoyed our xmas dinner in JRDN, the restaurant on site. It was a very reasonable $45 pre-fixed menu with dry aged fillet as one of the main course options. We really enjoyed... More

We just stayed here for the 3rd time--which says something right there. Rooms are clean and well-designed, staff couldn't be more helpful (there didn't seem to be an aspiring actor in the bunch), and the location is terrific: literally on the oceanfront paved "boardwalk." An easy walk to the many restaurants and other nightlife around Pacific Beach's Garnet Avenue. Valet... More
