Reviewed 4 March 2012

We went here for our 1st wedding anniversary and man, I think I screwed up. I have no idea how I'm going to top this one. I booked this through this great deal on Luxury Link that included breakfast for 4 days, dinner for 2 one night, 2 cocktails and a bottle of champagne. Everyone was great...from valet to room service to the front staff. Upon arrival... Omar greeted us and said he was upgrading our already great room to the sweet suite...and sweet it was! Two huge rooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 balconies with ocean views. The bed was amazing the dinner at the restaurant was one of the best fine dining experiences ever. Location was close to everything. I could go on and on about this hotel...but you get the picture.

Stayed four nights in Feb as part of extended business trip. Friends reco'd t23 and we ran with it. Great choice. Location was great, every drink, app, meal was great, setting and facilities were great. Sun deck was fantastic for drinks and sunsets... Staff was friendly and engaging. All around really great.

We live in San Diego and picked this place do to its location and ocean views and got a fantastic deal. Everything was perfect: they were flexible with check in and check out, gave us complimentary chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne, and had a perfect room with an ocean view. Would recommend to anyone, its in a great location to go out and the best breakfast in San Diego is next door!

Room Tip: Get a surf pad with an ocean view, totally worth it!

We spent 4 nights at Tower 23 in January 2012. The location is spectacular....the sunsets are so beautiful. We had a surf pad with a great view. The beds are extremely comfortable, and there are several different pillows to choose from. The staff was very helpful, and the maid service timely and thorough. The bar and restaurant were busy the night we went down there, and the service was horrible, so we didn't stay to eat dinner.

Room Tip: Surf Pad with full ocean view.

We stayed at T23 for a week in early January and it was a great experience. A room overlooking the ocean with balcony couldn't be beat. The first room had an annoying electrical hum and they cheerfully moved us the next day to another room. Overall excellent service and great hotel.

We stayed at Tower 23 for over a week in November 2010 (I had to check March 2011 because I waited too long to write this review). This hotel is so cool, a famous indie rock band stayed in our same room the same week.

Location: RIGHT ON THE BEACH. The sunsets were out of this world. We were addicted to the sunsets from our room at T23...we raced to the hotel to see them.

JRDN: This restaurant is truly gourmet--and at a hotel. We shared 4 dinners at JRDN over the course of the week. We knew our waiters by name. The food was OUTSTANDING. Best oysters I've ever had--we compare all other oysters to the ones we had at JRDN.

Room service: Room service was interesting because it wasn't just a room service delivery--it was like the restaurant came to you. We had loads of delicious breakfast foods included in our room rate. Every bit was executed with perfection. They were prompt and we loved our server, Meredith. And Josh--well, there were 2 Josh's. All were so much fun.

Room: The products--OMG, the products!!! I can still smell them when I think back to Tower 23. The balmy lotion was my favorite. Seriously awesome products. The mini bar was well stocked, there were loads of snacks, and even souvenirs you could buy from the room. The robes were a good weight and we wore them a lot. The bed was enormous with tons of fluffy pillows. Chaise lounge was handy and comfortable. We loved our balcony, too. Nice sized closet and great TV.

Service: I've mentioned the service was perfection. We were on first name basis with so many of our servers by the end of the trip.

Do yourself a favor--stay at Tower 23. The vibe is unique and this place will make your trip to San Diego. It's worth going to San Diego JUST to stay at this hotel. Enchanting location for couples.

Room Tip: Get the ocean view. The sunsets will blow your mind.

Awwwww..... thanks for the great review. We strive to make every guests' stay as wonderful as yours! So glad you were able to enjoy San Diego's famous sunsets from our oceanfront hotel. Tip: our bath products are H20+ and available for retail purchase online. Try the body scrub, it is amazing.

Happy traveling!
