We flew into San Diego and spent one night. I researched several hotels before deciding on this one. It was pricey but definitely worth the full ocean view. The location on the Beach is just slightly north of Crystal Pier and what I feel is nicer /wider part of the boardwalk. The room itself was very modern. The balcony overlooked... More

We had 3 memorable days at a tower 23. Our bedroom overlooked the beach so we had a perfect view in the evening of watching the sun going down over the sea. The concierge were very hopeful and nothing was too much trouble. It had a very busy bar area and a fabulous restaurant. There was no pool but felt... More

We booked Tower 23, San Diego for a 3 night stay after reading its great reviews on various boutique web sites. What a HUGE disappointment this stay was. We arrived in Sab Diego eager to enjoy the last 3 days of our 20 day road trip relaxing in a beach hotel and swimming in the Pacific Ocean. We had just... More

Tower 23 is fantastic, from start to finish this was one of the best trips my wife and I have ever taken. We had the Sweet Suite, with its stunning ocean view, it was worth every penny. Staff was friendly and helpful, bed was comfortable, food was great. IT would be hard to do better than Tower 23.

I stayed here for six nights in July 2014 as part of a two-month tour of the USA. It was poor value for $410 a night To be positive, I found the building attractive, light and airy with lovely sunset views. The bed was very comfortable - the best pillows I've ever slept on. The sun deck was well-used by... More

Tower23 is worth every penny. We just checked out today after our second stay at this property. The hotel is in a great location. It is oceanfront with many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The room service is prompt and tastes great. The rooms are large and clean. Basically, I have no complaints. Stay here. You won't regret it.... More

Tower 23 is perfectly situated at Pacific Beach. The view from the sundeck and the hotel restaurant is amazing, and you will never get tired of watching the beach and the boardwalk. Rooms are nice and bright, try get a room facing the beach or the street instead of the sundeck (otherwise not much privacy). The onsite restaurant/bar is quite... More

After travelling for 2 weeks down the west coast this was just what we needed for a few days relaxing! Fantastic hotel looking right over the beach. Staff very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were a great size and very modern. Can"t wait to go back!
