We stayed in a surf pad, which had a balcony with amazing views. I didn't think the hotel or the room were anything special. The room was small and there was a lack of lighting. At nearly $300 a night you are paying for the view. I was also a bit miffed that they insisted on valet parking, at another... More

Tower 23 is a hotel for younger people as it does not offer comfortable seating to lounge about. The deck is beautiful with lounge chairs offering a beautiful view. However inside the hotel there is no lobby per say and the lounges on the 2nd or 3rd floor are ultra modern and minimalist. The same can be said about the... More

With an unbeatable location. Tower23 has mesmerizing views from their rooms aside from the uniquely structured rooms. The hotel restaurant JRDN is really good as well. The hotel itself is small but extremely well designed and hosts that are as pleasant as the venue and location. Highly recommended. -- A drop of ink may make a million think. @AyaashPaw (FB... More

There is no detail that has not been thought of. I LOVE this hotel. Great location, fabulous views with an amazing room layout. There is also a really good restaurant JRDN, that is in the hotel. It's a small well designed boutique hotel with lots of amenities & a staff that seems happy to have you there.

You cannot beat the locale!! Minutes from La Jolla to the North and a short stroll south toward Mission Beach along the boardwalk will give you a locals perspective of life along the San Diego shoreline. Hillcrest is not more than 15 minutes by cab, only ten minutes to Old Town and the Old Town Trolley station where you can... More

You've seen the pictures - it's on the beach - great views, but be wary my TripAdvisor friends, all is not what it seems to be. Here's the reality - my wife and I stayed there in October, we're in our late 40's - we are romantics and totally in Love. We wanted to like Tower23, but it is so... More

Great hotel right on the Pacific. Incredible views from the room with fantastic sunsets. The restaurant in the hotel has a lively and classy cocktail bar and restaurant that one would expect in a boutique hotel of this caliber. It is right across the street from the beach and is a great place to watch the sun set. The room... More

I wish everyone could experience the ambience, location, and superior service of this luxurious beach front hotel. Our family travels overseas every year for nearly a month, and by the time we get to the last hotel we are generally ready to be home. Not this time. Our last 5 nights of our California holiday were relaxing, regenerating and breath... More

Based on the pics I thought we would get a nice room with a jacuzzi tub since the rates were so high but alas our room only had a shower. Small rooms. Nice packages but not smoothly delivered. The room also had a balcony but it was over the noisy outdoor dining area. The restaurant was delish!
