From the minute you arrive and they offer you lemonade or rum punch to when they bring your bag being held after check out, the staff all go out of their way to be helpful, friendly and welcoming. Love JRDN even as a middle aged woman among kids younger than mine. I travel a lot and tower 23 continues to be a special place. Splurge for oceanfront
The atmosphere and cleanliness were great!
I requested a king bed and paid for ocean view, but got two queen beds and a side ocean view.
The staff was absolutely wonderful from check in to check out. Room was great and beds were super comfy. The complimentary rum punch upon check in was a nice touch. The sun deck is a fabulous place to watch the sunset over the ocean.
The staff was so attentive! The service was great. And even the food at the resturant was delicious!
We liked the friendly staff,and the fact that Tower 23 has a popular beach restaurant and a good customer vibe, free bicycle borrowing, the modern décor, very lovely bathroom, the rooftop terrace with sand fire-pits; a view of the sea, the décor of the room, the location right on the beach, close to restaurants and shopping. We really enjoyed our experience there.
I loved Modern look and feel. The beds were really comfortable in my opinion. The food downstairs was good. The side view from the balcony was also nice. .
The Bathroom doors were the only downfall. They would be great for a single person, or couple. It lacked a little bit of privacy (non sealing doors). Opening doors in the middle of the night would disturb someone sleeping caused by the opening door and bathroom lights/fan.
Great location, fun atmosphere, amazing view!
The restaurant is very popular, especially brunch so be sure to put in a reservation because they do not RSVP tables for hotel guests.
Staff was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and just plain nice! Excellent food and drink.
The location was terrific, right on the beach. Quiet boutique-type hotel with young vibrant atmosphere. The ultra-modern bar was packed each night. The noise never effected us. We used the bikes twice during our stay.
Arrived early, due to direct flight, but had to wait 5 hours to get into our room. We did what we could, lunch, shop, sit on the beach (a bit cold), but we were very tired and wanted to get to our room. We came back after 3 hours and the room still wasn't ready. It doesn't have a lobby to sit in and wait. We had to sit outside on a park bench. The most expensive room is not a full view of the ocean, but rather a view of the room across the open lounge area. We had to keep the drapes closed during our stay. Not a lot of drawer space (3 small drawers) and 2 very small shelves and one large open shelf under the TV.
The location of the hotel The cleanliness and the elegance of the hotel The patio
Overall slightly expensive stay
Loved the location and view. Restaurant was excellent. Beds were amazing. Very clean and beautiful. Would stay again and again.
Had to pay to park in the hotel as well as tip the valet every time I used my car.
A fabulous experience. I would come back in a heartbeat. I opted for and paid for a room directly facing the Pacific, and it was worth every penny. We slept with the balcony doors open every night, listening to the waves crash on the nearby beach.
Nothing to dislike. I'm a very happy customer.
The situation, the room comfort, everything
There was nothing not to like
Cocktail delivered to room on arrival.
Inflexibility in check-out time - completely rigid approach.
Ocean View and open fire
Bed is soft and comfortable, sink in the bed. Bathrobes are very nice. Unbelievable experience, staff is very friendly and helpful.
valet reception bell hop all very helpful on arrival cocktails delivered to our room on arrival great location on beach bikes beach towels etc all available complimentary breakfast in restaurant lovely
restaurant stopped serving food at 10pm reception staff not too good at directions
Tower 23 is beautiful, we had a lovely stay here as part of our honeymoon. We stayed in one of the rooms with the ocean view which was truly amazing. I would definitely recommend. The room itself was fab. Restaurant food was very good also. Great location. Highly recommended from us!
Good location,right next to the pacific beach. Only 10min drive to the sea world. 5min drive to the mission bay. Staffs are helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and modern.
The bed is toooooo soft that we didn't have good sleep because our waist felt very uncomfortable.
My fiancé and I went on a mini two night vacation to PB. I was going to propose to her so out of all the hotels in the area it was an easy choice. Upon our arrival I discovered that we were upgraded to the sweet suite! Just like the name implys the room is awesome! Two balcony that overlook the ocean. We opened the sliding glass doors once we arrived and never closed them! Being able to listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach is an ambience that can't be beat! The staff was amazing, despite some technical difficulties at check in they were very apologetic (it was not necessary as it took less than 15 minutes). There is a lot to do in the area and plenty of places to eat (best of luck picking a place to eat because they are all good)! To cap off a perfect stay, we came back to the room on our final night to discover a bottle of complimentary champagne! Tower 23 made my proposal a trip that my fiancé and I will remember forever!
Everything was perfect as a 1st time guest of this hotel. The location is perfect as I was right on the beach and had access to everything imaginable in that area, from restaurants to tge beach and pier itself. I will definitely stay here every time I'm in San Diego! !
The views over the ocean from our surf pad, JRDN restaurant, the bed was fabulous!
Wi fi was erratic!
Almost every thing
The parking is a little expensive
The hotel has the location and interior design going for it. Staff such as room, terrace service and bell boys were super-nice and helpful. The views are spectacular but u can get them directly from the beach.
The hotel is small, with limited facilities, tiny public spaces and no pool to speak of, just a sunbathing area, which in San Diego is surprising. Tiny and not very convenient bathroom. Certainly neither helpdesk nor concierge was at the level I would have expected. Breakfast was a long wait pathetic affair, tasteless, my eggs were cold and the waitress possibly the only non smiling person in the entire San Diego together with the lady who received us at the helpdesk. Disappointing.
