Tower 23 - San Diego


Tower 23

Oceanfront Cool In San Diego

When planning a beach vacation, the two priorities for today’s traveler are location and vibe. The new traveler is craving a scene that rocks with excitement by night and low key chill during the day. We recently discovered such a destination, Tower 23 in sunny San Diego. On trend in every way this beachfront boutique lifestyle hotel is one of the most stylish and contemporary places we have had to pleasure of experiencing. Tower 23 Hotel is named after the nearby lifeguard tower located on one of the nations most beautiful beaches. This vibrant location is a gathering place for beach lovers, people watching and fine dining.

On arrival you may feel as if you have arrived at a stylish outpost in a far away jet-set destination, complete with a uniquely relaxed vibe. The rooms at Tower 23 reflect the tones of the oceanfront setting; the natural elements of sun, sand, ocean, and sky have inspired the décor that is warm and indulgent.




Guest can choose from three room types including Spirit, Sky, and Surf Pads, and if they are staying in a distinctive suite, Sanctuary or Sweet offer further options for a unique experience.

I choose a Surf Pad for my oceanfront room and I reveled in watching the setting sun from my private balcony. For an over-the-top experience I recommend the Sweet Suite. This 2-room suite offers a floating King size bed in the bedroom, complete with a private balcony, and a large living room designed for entertaining that includes its own wet bar and 42” LCD HDTV and yet another private balcony. The bathroom’s luxurious “chromatherapy” floating whirlpool Jacuzzi tube features an innovative fixture, which gives the illusion that, the water is falling from the sky, and the step-in rain shower further enhances the posh bathroom appointments.

A Vibe All Its Own

Tower 23's Radiant Cool

Dining at Tower 23 is a must for anyone interested in exceptional cuisine, beautiful people, and California beach style opulence. At JRDN Surf, the contemporary steak and seafood restaurant the casually sophisticated, California fresh cuisine is served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From this exceptional venue the setting sun takes center stage and is celebrated by the ambient reflections dispersed on diners from the 70-foot long “wave wall” at the rear of the restaurant.

Nature’s light show continues with a theatrical effect throughout the evening. This whitewashed enclave becomes awash with a spectrum of colors that reflects the excitement of the crowd. The Tower Deck located on the second floor of the hotel, reserved for hotel guests and their friends and other invited guest, is a gorgeous spot for cocktails under the stars.

Simply put, the vibe at Tower 23 is specially crafted through its décor, fine dining, cool music and uber-cool clientele.

Tower 23 Hotel is located near La Jolla and downtown San Diego. The airport and other dinning/nightlife hotspots are just moments away by car or bike. Tower 23
