The Tower23 Hotel is so named for the lifeguard tower that stands on Pacific Beach. This trendy hotel sits right on the waterfront and opened its doors in 2005. The design- & boutique hotel is almost entirely encased in a clever combination of large glass windows and white walls, thanks to the fabulous design of architect Graham Downes. It goes without saying that the ocean is just a few steps away, for those who want to go into San Diego; a cab ride will be needed.
This boutique hotel has 44 rooms that are well appointed with private balconies, plasma screen TV’s, Bose sound systems, Xbox game consoles and free WiFi Internet access. The en suite bathrooms have rain showers. The rooms look out onto the ocean or the lush garden. Suites come with additional whirlpool tubs and ocean views. The hotel has an on-site award winning restaurant, Jordan, a great rooftop sun-deck with a fire-pit and panoramic views of the ocean; a favorite weekend spot from which sunsets can be enjoyed. The Tower Deck is open only to hotel guests. Pets are welcome at the Tower23 Hotel.
