Great hotel, right on the boardwalk. Very clean and staff are fabulous. Good restaurant and bar. Stayed for 8 nights and it was very comfortable. Get an Oceanside room, well worth the few extra dollars.

Great location with a room overlooking the beach, clean modern hotel with awesome pool area, and drinks on arrival delivered to our room by cute bellboys :) what more could you want? If you want to be close to the beach it's a great location, but it still wasn't too far from downtown San Diego. I would recommend it!

The view is exceptional and room was so impressive. This hotel doesn't feel like a big box- it's so much more intimate and the restaurant downstairs and convenience to the beach is fantastic. We only stay at Tower 23 in SD!

My husband and I had business meetings in the San Diego area and wanted to take advantage of being on the ocean. We were unfamiliar with Tower23, but our stay was even better than expected. My husband is former president of a major 5 star hotel group, so he is very critical of wherever we stay. However, he said several...

Stayed there last week on a business trip. Absolutely beautiful views and you can hear the waves crashing if you open your balcony door. The only odd thing is that some rooms are facing each other directly. I opened my blinds and was staring right into a room across from me. The boardwalk is nice and lots is restaurants and...

If you're going, knowing that you were staying at Pacific Beach and not downtown San Diego, then this is a terrific place to stay. Right on Pacific Beach, watching the sunrise and sunsets is a real treat. The staff were friendly and helpful. You'd definitely want a car to explore the surrounds, if you stay here. Absolute beachfront and close...

This hotel is wonderful on so many levels. Perfect location. Clean, bright beautiful design. Fabulous balconies with beautiful views of ocean and pier. The attention to detail by the staff could not be better. Fireplace on deck for chilly evenings. Fantastic restaurant connected to this hotel. Only steps to the beach from the front door. Staying at Tower 23 is...

I was here on business and spent my days in Downtown San Diego. I only wish I could have had more time to enjoy at and near tower23 hotel. One of the USB wall plugs was broken, however, everything else was fantastic.

Lovely ocean view with view of the Pacific Beach Pier and surfers! Really friendly and helpful staff, especially Jamie, Tory and Desirie at the front desk, Cole, and so many others, too numerous to mention, but they are all so accommodating. Decor is Euro minimalist, sparkling whites and ocean colors with gorgeous wave pattern walls in the hopping bar and...

Fabulous location, gorgeous facilities right at the beach. The room was spacious, and very comfortable - and although above the restaurant, we were not bothered by noise. There is a lovely terrace with a fire pit over looking the beach, shielded from wind for sunset . Really spectacular. The always-helpful staff (thank you Jaime, Desirie and Alan!) produced beach chairs,...
