Surprised with a one night stay at this beautiful hotel for my 50th birthday- I have never enjoyed myself as much as I did these past 24 hours. What an absolutely beautiful property and staff! I can't wait to return..

My room had a breath taking view that was even better when the charming wait staff, Jonathan brought up a bottle of chilled champagne and birthday card! The sweetest front desk agent Christina checked us in and made us feel so welcomed. We enjoyed the friendly valet, Tony who eagerly and quickly brought us our car each time we needed it. Greg the bellman was awesome, assisting with bags and opening doors, always aware and ready to help. Lastly, Raul at check out was full of recommendations for brunch, very sincere and radiating positivity to start our morning and end our stay at Tower 23.
What a great experience, truly one to remember.
This property and staff goes above and beyond expectations, we were very pleased!

This hotel exceeded my expectations. The décor was clean and modern, the staff treated us as if we were the most high end of customers. An excellent restaurant and bar is located on the main level, with complimentary towel service as you walk just a few steps to the beach. We were greeted with complimentary cocktails, and our room was wonderfully designed. The outdoor deck featured a waitstaff ready to serve cocktails or snacks as we enjoyed the sun, and featured a fire pit at night. Will definitely visit again!

My husband and I stayed at Tower 23 one night when we were down from San Francisco. The hotel is in a great location right on the beach, and it's got a lively scene at night, but the quality of service and facilities wasn't as high as I would have expected for the price. We booked a king room with a partial ocean view and ended up in a room with two queens facing the street, with a view of the ocean if you got to one edge of the balcony. They did offer us complimentary rum punch when we arrived, which was a nice touch. They have a cool area for sunbathing and looking over the ocean, but there's no pool, which I hadn't realized until we got there.

All in all, it was a pleasant stay, but not rave-worthy.

I appreciate the time you spent writing your feedback. We strive to improve with every review! I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed the location and nightlife. While we always do our very best to honor bed requests, we are unable to guarantee them as the hotel is only 44 rooms with limited inventory of the different room types. Please feel free to call us the next time you return to San Diego, so we may put in a VIP request for a King bedded room.

Warm regards,
Stacy

What a nice surprise. Super clean, contemporary hotel. The staff were all very friendly and the restaurant JRDN located in the hotel (outside seating with views of the ocean) was superb! Sunday Brunch is a must if you plan on staying thru a weekend. This was my first time to PB. What a great little area this is. The hotel is located right on the beach and they offer complimentary bike rentals if you are staying at the hotel. It was just perfect. I would definatly stay again when I return to the area.

We stayed at Tower 23 for a few days during spring break. All I can say is WOW!!! The hotel is amazing. Loved everything about it. The location is fantastic, the service is top rate and the rooms are spotless. We had rented a car and used the valet service. They were always very attentive and quick. The front desk was very friendly and always spoke to us when we passed through. We ordered room service for breakfast and it was very good. Overall this is a great hotel!

Hotel location, condition, service was amazing. We stayed for two nights, ordered breakfast on the deck, had lunch at the restaurant, and used the valet car service. Valets were always very quick, and food service was outstanding. Food was great too. We would stay at this location over and over again. The hotel is located on the ocean coast, and most rooms have an ocean view.
