I love going to San Diego. I spent a lot of my teen years there (specifically to Pacific Beach) and there is a certain familiarity to it, that makes it feel comforting whenever I visit. There are so many wonderful areas to see and visit in San Diego, but I always make Pacific Beach my homebase, because of the access to the beach and the laid back atmosphere. Still, a lot has changed since my teen years, and sleeping 10 to an outdated and dingy room is no longer an option for this 30 something. One of the biggest downfalls of Pacific Beach, for me, is that it’s lacked the kind of hotels that Brandon and I have grown accustomed to staying in – aka chic, modern and offer all the modern luxuries. That’s when I found Tower23 – which is THE BEST luxury hotel in Pacific Beach, San Diego!
Everything at Tower23 is done to perfection! We obviously love the modern design, but the hotel staff is so friendly and welcoming, and made us feel right at home. They even greeted us with a cocktail, upon arrival! (My kind of place!) The hotel also provides beach towels and beach cruisers, so you don’t have to pack anything extra or spend money on rentals, which is so nice!
It’s funny because the weather was actually kind of cold while we were in San Diego, so we didn’t have much beach time. It was so nice to be able to have a home base at Tower23 to hang out at, and relax, and actually not even really want to leave. This was a total R&R trip for us, with no grand plans to sightsee or do all the things, and I can honestly say we found just that – in large part thanks to Tower23. We even skipped out on the night life and hung out by the fire on the tower deck and played Uno. So random, but some QT that was so needed!
We had lunch and Rose (obvi) at Tower23’s restaurant JRDN – which I hear from the locals is the perfect place to watch the sunset! (Darn weather wasn’t cooperating with us though!) The restaurant was fabulous and so yummy! I ordered the Asian chopped salad and Brandon was living for the crispy chicken it came with. (That says a lot if you know my picky eater!)
If you’re planning a beach trip, but don’t want to skip out on modern luxurious accommodations, you have got to check out Tower23!
