Hotel has a great location right in the heart of Pacific Beach. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Stephen the concierge, Margarita at front desk, Viktor, William, Tony, Danny and Andrew. It has a great deck too for relaxing and viewing the sun set.

Wanted to spend a beautiful night in a beautiful room with a beautiful friend. Instead, we got a horribly overpriced room - the walls are thin, you can hear everything happening in the corridor. Also, the AC was very loud and made clanking noises all night. The best parts about the room is the minibar and the tempurpedic bed. Comfy... More

Dear LorettaManes1313 I wanted to sincerely thank you for taking the time to write a review and letting us know you were disappointed in your stay. Because the hotel is located in beach area we are very proactive enforcing the drinking age, but you should never be made uncomfortable with the process nor wait 30 minutes past your reservation time....

Have now stayed here three times and really like this hotel. It's a hip boutique in a great spot on Pacific Beach. The rooms are modern and sleek but still quite comfortable. The bar and restaurant on premise is a hot scene but still beach casual. It's a great balance to strike. The deck on the 2nd floor is great... More

We stayed at Tower 23 for an anniversary stay-cation. It was great! The staff here are very warm and friendly. The room is spacious and comfortable. Classy, yet comfy. Only thing I wish they had here was a jacuzzi... The restaurant, JRDN on site, was fab! Can't wait to return!

We came to Tower 23 for my daughters Beachlorette weekend. There were ten of us in total. The rooms were beautiful, clean, and the views incredible. The outside verandah was the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine or cocktail and watch the ocean from above the street line. However what truly set this apart was the staff.... More

The service is outstanding to include the front desk (William) and the parking garage staff.you can't beat the location to include JDRN which is a fantastic Restuarant. I enjoy the bikes which are great for riding along the beach to mission bay and or to La Jolla. The bikes are starting to have that very used look and could be... More

Great room and hotel in front of the beach . It is more a restaurant with room than an hotel with restaurant , and the price of the rooms is pretty high considering what the hotel offers. Nevertheless the rooms were clean and modern , hotel staff was helpful and we had good time. The rooms above the restaurant and... More

Hotel nice enough that lack of pool really didn't matter. Really felt all staff, from valet to managers went out of their way. Balcony rooms with ocean view are literally steps from the sand. Doors soundproof enough for sleeping and cleanliness was exceptional for a beachfront hotel. Keep up the great work!

Tower 23 is located right on the beachfront of Mission Beach which is a great location for eating, drinking, and shopping. The view from the hotel rooms is amazing. You wake up to the sound of the ocean waves and the sea breeze is so refreshing when you are out on your balcony. The rooms are clean , which is... More
