Tower 23 is a boutique hotel named and designed to look a little reminiscent of one of the many lifeguard towers you see along the beaches of San Diego. There's a restaurant and bar that faces out to the ocean and they also have a great patio upstairs with wide views of the ocean, lounge chairs and a large fire pit.
This hotel is smack in the middle of the Pacific Beach community of San Diego. It's located very near all the major tourist attractions, but also in the downtown area so the main drag of bars, restaurants and shops are all in walking distance.
If you're looking to stay somewhere in San Diego where you can experience firsthand the laid back beach/surfer vibe without having to drive anywhere, this is the place to stay.
