The Best Place to Stay in Pacific Beach

Pacific Beach (or PB as the locals call it) is a town in San Diego that is known for its beautiful beach, stunning Crystal Pier, and fun party atmosphere. There are plenty of hotels in the area, but there is only one luxury option, Tower23 Hotel, which is hands down the best place to stay in Pacific Beach. It is also the only luxury boutique hotel located right on the beach in all of San Diego. It derives its name from the lifeguard tower positioned nearby. Sporting world class ocean views, luxurious rooms, and an ideal location, Tower 23 is the perfect place to escape for a San Diego beach vacation.

The three-story modern hotel features 44 rooms and suites, all with ocean views. The minimalist design, high-end amenities, and a cool blue color palette reflects the nearby ocean and is the perfect balance between luxury and relaxation.

There is no pool on the property, but there is a large sundeck to relax on and soak up the rays. And if you need to cool off, the ocean is only steps away. Tower23 also offers in-room spa services.

The hotel provides complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas and bikes for you to use during your stay. I highly recommend renting a bike and exploring Mission Beach, Mission Bay & Ocean Beach, all of which are only a short ride away.

There are plenty of recreational activities in PB and the surrounding area including surfing, hiking, fishing, kayaking, whale watching and golf. Downtown San Diego is only a short drive away as well as Sea World, Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo.

There is no shortage of restaurants and bars in Pacific Beach and Tower23 is only steps away from all of them. It was so nice to be able to walk everywhere. Be sure to check out my post on 6 bars & restaurants you need to visit in Pacific Beach (including JRDN, Tower23’s onsite restaurant).

If you are looking for a fun San Diego get-away and the best place to stay in Pacific Beach, I highly recommend you book a room at Tower23. Be sure to check out my video re-cap.
