Tower23 Hotel in San Diego, California

Pacific Beach, a coastal San Diego neighborhood, is an unlikely place for a hideaway crafted from translucent glass with lines that are contemporary and clean. But that is what you will find at Tower23 Hotel, a chic retreat surrounded by serious surfers and sun-worshippers. Sporting a cool and unconventional façade, its name is derived from lifeguard tower 23, which is positioned near the hotel and serves as a beacon for beach goers. Select from an assortment of room and suite types - Spirit Pad, Sky Pad, Surf Pad, Sanctuary Suite and Sweet Suite - that bask in modernistic features with sleek furnishings and minimalist appointments, coupled with private balconies or patios. The amenities are also a bit out-of-the-box, with chromatherapy baths, step-in rain showers, mini-bars personalized to your liking, and Xbox entertainment centers.

The hotel's restaurant, JRDN, is equally cutting-edge in its approach with an ultra-sleek oceanfront dining room and locally grown and organic produce that find their way into the culinary creations. TOWER Bar has the feel of a private party rather than an ordinary bar - the indoor/outdoor venue is warm, inviting and hip with a menu of signature cocktails. If the party gets started at TOWER Bar, it continues up on the TOWER Deck. This second-floor open-air space is where guests come to relax during the day and mingle with martini in hand at night. Lounge on one of the teak chaises or stake claim to one of the plush beds strategically placed throughout. When the party is over, explore the nearby village of La Jolla, the amusements at Mission Beach, and the trendy Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego.

We had a problem with a reservation at another place. These guys stepped in and gave me a great room at the last minute. Tori at the front desk was very friendly and extremely helpful. I had a good experience with all of their staff. They have great valet service as well. William Z. was a big help while we were leaving. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I booked a room on our wedding night, but never actually submitted it haha. When we arrived, the front desk staff were very helpful, and quickly got us a great room and a discount! We greatly enjoyed our stay, and appreciated their help!

This is a pretty good hotel. The staff is super friendly and eager to please. The employees were really the best quality of the hotel. I felt the room and decor could use some TLC. The white grout was stained in the shower, the lighting was poor and it was generally starting to look worn. It does not feel like a five star hotel although it was as pricey as one. The location is right on the beach however it’s not in an upscale area. We had a surf pad so we had a beautiful view of the ocean however there were lots of loud young people outside. The hallway outside our rooms had a strong pot smell even though there was supposed to be no smoking inside. There is not a pool. There is a fountain and they did have a nice fire and great heaters on the deck at night.

Stayed one night at this hotel during a business trip. Only 40 plus hotel rooms, this place is a great location if you are looking for a local SD hotel that has great hotel accommodations, a beautiful rooftop patio that overlooks the ocean, and excellent customer service. It is right on the boardwalk in close walking distance to many restaurants, as well as, has a beachfront restaurant of it's own. I definitely would recommend staying here again. Parking can be limited depending on what day of the week/weekend you are there. Recommend finding street parking if you can, otherwise, I used the valet service which was wonderful and Andrew was very accommodating and provided great service getting my car on time before departure.

This is a stunning beachside hotel and restaurant. Not too big. Not too small. Modern and comfortable and friendly. Staff unbelievably friendly and helpful. Free bikes for those trips out. Food was excellent too. Great place to stay.
