We came to San Diego for three nights and stayed one night at Tower23 and two nights at Pacific Terrace. The two hotels are very close to each other. Both have lots of surfing at the beach in front of them. Both are very nice. But there are lots of differences too. While Tower23 is sleek and modern, Pacific Terrace is beautiful in a more traditional way, with dark wood furniture and rich colors. They don't have a full restaurant, although they do have a breakfast buffet for $14 (there were only a very few gluten-free options on it, so I preferred the breakfast at Tower23). Pacific Terrace has a pool, which is a nice addition that Tower23 doesn't have. If I had brought my kids, we would have preferred Pacific Terrace because the rooms are a little larger, they have a pool, and it seems a little more family-friendly. The ocean views are great. We stayed on the second floor overlooking the pool and had no issues.
