Comfortable relaxing vacation in Pacific Beach

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Tower 23. The king size bed in our Sky Pad room was the most comfortable I've ever slept on. You can't help but relax when you melt into the multiple fluffy pillows that adorn the bed. We loved the deep bathtub because we are both tall and were able to keep our legs extended and still have the bath water up to our chest. The staff was friendly and helpful. Complimentary cocktails were sent to our room upon arrival and when we asked for a couple forks they arrived within moments. If you ask at the front desk there are beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas available to check out at no cost. The valet parking is $20 a night with in/out privileges. There is some free parking nearby, but I never saw it empty. There is also free wi-fi in the hotel. After turn-down service every night housekeeping leaves a couple of delicious chocolates on your pillow. I thought that was a nice touch. The location was wonderful for us. Tower23 is right on the beach so you can either walk in the sand or along the boardwalk and browse the local shops. There are also several wonderful restaurants within just a couple minutes walk of the hotel. It's also only a 15 minute drive from La Jolla where I highly recommend the sea cave kayaking trip. The only downside to Tower23 (and it really isn't that big a deal) is that there is no pool. I realize the beach is right there, but I'm a wuss and hate the cold, so a warmer pool or a jacuzzi would have been nice. There also is no workout room if that's something that's important to you. But I was perfectly happy to jog on the beach.

Great experience... but overpriced

Good quality, small, boutique hotel with a minimalist design and friendly staff. The restaurant and terrace are great and the location is good for going out in Pacific Beach and the ocean is thirty seconds away. The rooms were too expensive however.

On the beach, but expensive!

Rooms were a bit small. No real table seating for in room dining. Bathroom lighting not very addiquate. No pricing on menues, found out meals are VERY expensive. Beds were comfortable, friendly staff. Great ocean view from main deck, but you don't want to rent a room facing deck because of noice and traffic. Found people there not registered at hotel. Address is on beach walkway, so if taking any shuttles or cabs you need to check with hotel first to get directions for drivers.

Nice Pacific Beach hotel

Great location and very comfortable beds. If you like modern decor, you'll love this place. It was a bit austere for my tastes.

Very nice, right on the boardwalk

We stayed one night to meet friends and celebrate a birthday. We had a great meal and had drinks around the upstairs firepit. The sunset was great.

..........

From what i've heard, the hotel is only couple years old... so its clean, very nice modern minimal design, we stayed in a suite, that had an access to a patio with a bangin view of the ocean, - the location is perfect, right on the ocean, with Surf rental right @ the door and lots of bars, - about 20 min drive to downtown and bunch of other sightseeing attractions.. 20-30 min drive to the airport (which is downtown also).. JRDN restaurant in the hotel was top (service, food etc) - may b a little pricey for some people, but definitely worth it... Staff was really attentive... 5 out of 5... my next San Diego visit im stayin at T23

Great beach location

Staying here was cozy, luxe and romantic. There was a private deck w fire-pit perfect for evenings and friends hanging out together. It was super comfortable with an incredible locale on the beach. We couldnt have had a better time in the hotel and out. Drinks downstairs was a party in itself; like staying upstairs from the coolest hang-out. Dinner and lunch was great; although not cheap. The nearness of downtown, La Jolla, etc was great!

great location!

i loved the location because the hotel was right on the beach. the staff was very friendly. when we arrived at our room, it was dirty, but the staff acknowledged the problem right away and put us in a new, upgraded room, and gave us another round of complimentary cocktails. i also loved the balcony and outdoor seating area overlooking the beach. it's not a very big hotel, so there weren't many amenities (ie. jacuzzi, gym)
