A little cold in the east, was looking for a place on the Beach! This place is great, on top of that it has the best bar on the beach. This boutique hotel has it all; location, great rooms with a terrific terrace overlooking the beach and the best place for appetizers and people watching! Will definitely be back! Go... More

This is a very modern hotel concept, only 3 stories tall, with a very nice restaurant/bar. We had an ocean view room and it was wonderful. There was quite a bit of noise rising up from the bar, but it quieted down at a reasonable hour. Nice little touches like water with citrus and strawberries and a complementary rum punch... More

Waking up and "dolphin gazing" with popped bottles of champagne is the ideal way to start your day. I stayed on the patio floor level and on the 3rd floor and I highly recommend the patio floor mostly because you are able to walk out of your room and hangout on the spacious patio. The walking score is not that... More

We stayed one night and upgraded to one of the surf pad rooms. If doing the same, try and get ones on the 3rd floor if possible. We stayed in 221 which was directly above the dining area and awoke to staff moving tables and chairs at 6:00 am . The staff was friendly and compensated us for the inconvenience... More

We had a great time at this quaint beachfront hotel! The staff was attentive to our needs and the service provided was excellent, especially William at the front desk. He always had a smile on his face and he brought us rum cocktails upon our arrival! The free bikes were a hit with us. The property was perfectly clean, quiet... More

Spent 4 days at Tower 23 for our son's wedding. Perfect reception venue and cannot say enough good things about the staff and how attentive they were to all of us, especially William! Our room was quiet, maybe because we stayed on the 3rd floor, north side. The beds were comfortable, the car was brought around quickly, and the restaurant... More

Hotel was amazing. Really clean and spacious room. Free bike hire was excellent to see the coast!! The concierge was most helpful in helping us get a rental car. Staff all friendly. Ideal location : next to shops, restaurants and bars. View from the room was incredible. Food in the restaurant was really good too!! Highly recommend it.

This hotel is located north of downtown San Diego in Pacific Beach. The area is known to gather young crowds of college kids. Bars and restaurants in the area are just average. The only good hotel and restaurant in PB is Tower 23. Although it has small rooms and just ok service, its still a good place to book when... More

We went to a wedding reception that took over the whole hotel. We had all the rooms, and also the entire restaurant / bar. The rooms were great, and the bed was amazingly comfortable. The layout was great, and on the 2nd floor, we had a nice patio as well. The staff was fantastic, very happy and professional. From the... More

Pros: Great location, great views, great room service, friendly staff, modern decor Cons: Rooms are noisy (on the 2nd floor, we could hear everything happening in the room above us); Wi-Fi is intermittent (it was out for at least two days during our stay, and the front desk could not provide an estimate for when it would be fixed); there...
