Check in: industry standard for a 4 star hotel, tough the reception area is a bit small Room: booked a room with direct ocean view; first room had very little privacy as people from the sun deck or restaurant beneath could see our every move on the balcony. Second balcony was better in that respect. Room itself nice room, nothing... More

We stayed here for the second time (last time October 2014) and left yesterday, wishing we could stay longer. It is exactly as described, a small boutique hotel and the pictures on the website are spot on. If you are looking for a luxury, swanky, named hotel like the Coronado, then this is definitely not for you. If however, you... More

I did so much research on Tower23 vs Pacific Terrace prior to our trip. I am admittedly a hotel snob and while the Pacific Beach area isn't exactly "upscale", I wanted as nice of a property as possible--Tower23 did NOT disappoint. I can tell you, however, that if you want a nice view I HIGHLY recommend the Surf Pad rooms...they... More

This past weekend, my family hosted our annual reunion at Tower23 Hotel. My first impressions? Amazing! Gorgeous!! Words truly cannot express my gratitude for this wonderful place and the superb staff it employs! The Hotel's decor is playful and stylish; tasteful yet trendy. As you enter the main floor area from the front lobby, you step into a little slice... More

If this were not a relatively pricey property my ranking would be higher. However, it is priced as a higher end property and is lacking some of the amenities that one would expect with properties in this category. For example, there really is no concierge. The front desk staff is not particularly knowledgeable about restaurants, some common activities, etc. and... More

This hotel definitely deserves a review. We have spent an amazing weekend, thanks to the staff and the service. They have free bikes to go for a ride along pacific beach and mission bay. The room has incredible views of the ocean, you can see the sunsets and the surfers from your balcony. They also have everything you need for... More

This place is buzzing with life. We had eleven great nights at this cool boutique hotel with a great location. We did drive to Legoland and enjoyed the amazing Zoo for the youngest, did plenty of shopping for the teenagers and had a great day exploring the museums at Balboa Park for the adults. But we also had plenty of... More

What a wonderful boutique hotel! The location was great because it made for an easy drive to all of the activities we wanted to participate in and we could walk to a great variety of restaurants, great ice cream, and of course the beach is right there. The drive to all of San Diego's top spots, LaJolla, the zoo, Coronado,... More
