Tower23 Hotel Review

: Sleek and sophisticated, the Graham Downes-designed Tower23 Hotel caters to the style-conscious set. Named for a former lifeguard tower, this three-story beachfront property makes generous use of glass and geometric lines. The brainchild of area restaurateur and business developer Brett Miller (Gringo’s, Moondoggie’s and Cendio), Tower23 brings a touch of class to the typically rowdy Pacific Beach scene. All 44 larger-than-average rooms and suites are alliteratively summed up into five different categories according to views and available amenities. Spirit, Sky and Surf pads are equipped with flat-screen TVs, Xbox entertainment centers, wet bars and dual-line cordless phones, while Sweet and Sanctuary suites include sleeper sofas and whirlpool Jacuzzi tubs, in addition to standard guest room amenities. JRDN restaurant (pronounced Jordan) offers mix-and-match steaks, seafood and sushi; Tower Bar serves creative cocktails steps away from the sand. For those who must work, Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the hotel, and JRDN’s private Wine room can accommodate up to 100 guests. Additional features of the property include a lounge area and fire pit. As for the unwritten policy: Bring your own surfboard to relax in the waves and indulge in the San Diego lifestyle.
