The LA Times calls the soon-to-be-opened Tower23 Hotel in San Diego an aspiring "uber-hip habitat."

The 44-room hotel is set to open near the Crystal Pier at Pacific Beach on July 15.

"With room categories such as Sweet Suite and Surf Pad and a restaurant menu with headings such as 'way cool' and 'getting warm,' Tower23 Hotel sounds a bit like '50s beatnik meets the beach.

On the web site the hotel says its a mixture of plenty things from "london chic" to "sydney vibe" to "south beach sizzle."

Staying true to its location, the hotel was named after a nearby lifeguard tower and uses lots of glass windows so that the beach and ocean are always in view.

Instead of a nightclub or regular swimming pool, the hotel will have " a wading pool with a waterfall and fiber-optic illumination at night, teak tables and chairs, and food and bar service."

Another thing the hotel will have is exclusivity. The pool/bar areas is only open to hotel guests and their friends.

Is the velvet rope coming to San Diego?
