My husband and I came to this hotel for our first wedding anniversary and it was an absolutely wonderful experience! Extremely clean. Helpful and courteous staff. Amazing food! (The ribeye at JRDN restaurant was the best my husband had ever had). Make sure you do the complimentary bike ride...it's a gorgeous view and pretty easy ride.

Wonderful staff. Everyone (valet, desk, wait staff) friendly and very helpful. All questions and requests taken care of quickly. We had cool evening weather but the gas fire pit and heaters made the deck a great place to watch sunsets and evening drinks. Our deck servers were great, if needed, request blankets to stay out longer. Stayed in the Surf... More

Had the pleasure of staying at the Tower23 during December of 2014. Stayed in the the double room, it was spacious and clean. Bathroom was great. My slider opened to the pool and a gorgeous view and sitting area. Ate at the restaurant and the food was good as well. Rooms are stocked with free Keurig machines. Close to everything,... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Tower 23. It was a perfect stay - the rooms were well appointed, clean and spacious with an amazing ocean view. The staff was courteous, helpful and gracious - especially William at the front desk. We look forward to coming back to Tower 23.

My mom and I stayed at Tower23 last weekend and we were both so impressed with everything the hotel had to offer. This is by far the best staff I have ever seen! William and Jimmy were so helpful at the front desk. They took the time to explain all the differences in the rooms and they told us about... More

Our four night stay at Tower 23 was delightful in every way. As others have mentioned the staff is absolutely professional, generous with their time, talented at interacting with guests and without a doubt among the best we have observed in recent years. The location on Pacific Beach, the views, the beach and access to everything from homemade Mexican food... More

My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay at Hotel 23 and WOW, where to begin! I'll start by saying most vacations I have a daily itinerary, but this time we decided to wing it. Upon arrival, front desk staff, William and Lorraine, were mindful and very helpful with suggestions on what to do in beautiful Pacific... More

Valet Parking was easy. Complimentary rum punch upon arrival. Staff was helpful, but not at all pushy. My husband and I had a sky pad on the 3rd floor - excellent view, clean room, comfortable, and we had no noise problems. The location is great and very walkable to several resturants and bars.

I really can't say enough about this Pacific Beach hotel. Our 22 year old fresh grad daughter just moved to San Diego/Pacific Beach recently and for our Thanksgiving trip to visit her, I did a hotel search looking for a hotel that was as close as possible to her apartment so it would be easy to get back and forth...
