Being a San Diego native and also being in real estate I have seen and been to most every hotel in San Diego. I personally go to this hotel lobby and rooftop twice a month if not more. This is my favorite hotel with a view. The staff Ivan, Chi and Lacey (the main employees that I have personally been... More

We stayed here for a wedding, and the staff was very excited and helpful with wedding things. This hotel is very nice looking, very modern, with a beautiful patio area and nighttime bonfire. Great view of the sea from some rooms. One particularly helpful person was Omar. He saw that my hands were full and I couldn't get to my... More

Great location. Impressive bar, restaurant, view, and hotel all in one. Located in a very walkable part of Pacific Beach. Super relaxing venue and a nice guest only balcony above a trendy bar and restaurant with tasty food.

Truly great accommodations, helpful staff, beach access, people watching, and easy walking to great bars and eateries. A bit pricey yes but honestly, treat your gang to this, both young and old alike will love it.

The room was in perfect local to beach/sidewalk access, roof top fire pit, restaurant and bar. Also, very convenient to downtown, La Jolla and Zoo/Balboa Park. My only... More

Room was lovely, clean and fresh, we had a Sky Pad room with views over the ocean and the rooftop seating area, with the lovely fire pit for a late night drink. Love the availabilty of USB sockets for charging phones... More

Such an attention to the detail... Valet parking: top-notch. Crab served on the terrace. Always fresh newspaper and distilled water. Location: there is no further. The whole facility must have been designed by the team of architects who know what is valuable in travel. Highly recommended.

So five of my closest girlfriends came down to PB for a a fun ladies trip. After doing some research we chose Tower 23 due to it's beautiful design and patio. We knew it was going to be pricy but once we arrived the price was no longer an issue. This hotel was worth EVERY PENNY. Upon checking in we... More
