I just returned last night from my first visit to San Diego. I cannot say enough good things about Tower23!! The location is beyond perfect, right on the beach in Pacific Beach and centrally located in between Mission Beach and La Jolla.
From the second we parked our rental car in the garage we were met with a warm and genuine greeting. We arrived early and our room was not ready, however, the front desk took our bags (7 of them) and kept them safe so we could enjoy the beach! Once the room was ready, I received a call on my cell that we could check in at our leisure.
Jackie, the concierge was very helpful in providing us with things to do, places to eat/drink in the area and even made a reservation for me for my first surf lesson with Pacific Beach Surf School!!!
The room itself was absolutely awesome - everything was modern and very, very clean! We had a partial ocean view on the 3rd floor with a view of the rooftop with the pool and fire pit directly facing the ocean.
Every single employee was friendly and welcoming!!
At night wanted to grab some drinks and sit outside at the bar which fills up pretty quickly and reservations at the restaurant are a must. Both the food and drinks were delicious, not to mention the sunset view from our table.
The rooftop has fun lights and is just a cool place to either tan during the day (although the beach is right there so we headed to the beach) or sit at night enjoying the ocean and relaxation of the beauty that is Pacific Beach.
Further down the boardwalk can be loud with bars and people everywhere, however, Tower23 is in the perfect spot with great access to all the fun bars/restaurants without being in the noisy area. It's like it's own oasis.
I cannot think of a better place to stay in the area. My only complaint is that I had to leave!!!
We will most certainly return to San Diego very soon and stay at Tower23!!
