Tower23 is worth every penny. We just checked out today after our second stay at this property. The hotel is in a great location. It is oceanfront with many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The room service is prompt and tastes great. The rooms are large and clean. Basically, I have no complaints. Stay here. You won't regret it....

Tower 23 is perfectly situated at Pacific Beach. The view from the sundeck and the hotel restaurant is amazing, and you will never get tired of watching the beach and the boardwalk. Rooms are nice and bright, try get a room facing the beach or the street instead of the sundeck (otherwise not much privacy). The onsite restaurant/bar is quite...

After travelling for 2 weeks down the west coast this was just what we needed for a few days relaxing! Fantastic hotel looking right over the beach. Staff very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were a great size and very modern. Can"t wait to go back!

We came to San Diego for three nights and stayed one night at Tower23 and two 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. Tower23 has a great restaurant, a great breakfast, and...

So happy to hear you enjoyed Tower23's sophisticated restaurant and nightlife. Our weekly summer beverage series is always a big hit and a great way to discover a favorite new winery. Stacy

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...

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...

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.
