Staff is friendly, hotel is clean and right on the beach. Great rooms, they have a ton of items you can check out for the beach and even had bikes to ride- and would definitely stay again!
However we would skip the restaurant JRDN. We waited well over an hour for food, waiter disappeared and had to get our food a few at a time, 2 kids first, then 2 adults and finally the last one. Food was ok on some- chops were good, but our Medium steak was so rare it was inedible except the outside, and there were 3 scallops on a 38 dollar dinner plate.

Recently stayed a few nights for our annual trip to SD. We always choose tower 23 because their crew is so delightful. From the housekeeping to the valet to the front desk personnel to the managers...everyone is just so happy and kind. There’s no way you won’t enjoy your trip if you stay here. Rooms are beautiful and spotless and food is great. Book it!

I have traveled to California many times (from the east coast); and we were looking forward to our first stay in San Diego..if you want to come to San Diego, please do yourself a favor and not stay here. I’m not sure why this hotel has received positive reviews; but it should not have.

We were welcomed by a pretty rude, uninformative “front desk”; and then brought to our room (no help with our bags was offered)...no help with anything really.

Then we were brought into our first room, with approximately 8-10 flies swarming the room. Pretty unacceptable and the room in general wasn’t clean..

We subsequently complained; brought to another room, with the exact same problem (more flies); after spending $500 a night for an ocean front room, you would assume that flies wouldn’t be apart of the equation...

We complained again, and this time, we just asked to leave the hotel and have our money refunded(which they did); upon, leaving, the hotel manager told us “it’s the summer, and you need to expect flies”....

I’m not sure you should actually expect them (>10 of them) swarming you room...better off at a motel 6...

Modern style hotel a mere staircase away from the clean, sandy beach. Superb restaurant and bar with excellent sushi and other contemporary cuisine with ample portions. A great place to watch the sunset over the Pacific.
Breakfast also set you up for the day.
Attentive, friendly staff and towels and umbrellas and bicycles available to enhance your stay.
Overall excellent for a stay on the coast.

Nice hotel in Pacific Beach on the water with great views and beautiful rooms, they have a restaurant as well but we did not try it. The hotel staff were all very helpful and did there best to make us comfortable. They give you complimentary bike rentals, boogie boards, and other recreational to use. The valet parking was really convenient & reasonably priced. The front desk was super friendly & helpful! I loved being able to walk out of our room and be on the boardwalk then go strait down to the beach! Not having to drive to the beach & worry about parking was awesome! Don't get me wrong its not a bargain. But honestly, its not outrageous, you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a nice beachfront hotel, look no further!

Room tip: The location can be a little loud and the area is a little wild, not really kid friendly because of the party area it is located in!!
