A terrific hotel in a terrific location. I especially enjoyed the little touches that set this Kimpton hotel apart -- like an oversized chess board, "Connect Four" game in the lobby and a complimentary wine hour. I can't imaging wanting to stay anywhere else in this area of Huntington Beach. Also, the entire staff was first rate, but Timmy really... More

I spent a night here on business. It is a quirky, modern hotel with some nice rope-work in the lobby. The website shows magnificent views of the beach; my room, which was not cheap, faced a brick wall, with a delightful oblique views of the air-conditioning units. Having gone down the road to a nice Italian for dinner, my colleague... More

The hotel is fantastic but a guest services employee named Timmy made the entire trip for us. He was making friends with everyone during the wine tasting happy hour in the lobby and overheard it was my girlfriends birthday. He personally delivered mimosas, and chocolate covered strawberries with raspberries and blackberries to our room. That right there was that little... More

Let's start off by saying we are no strangers to the Kimpton family. We love their hotels and above all, their service. We had always booked through Hotels.Com (or similar), but since we love and stay with them so much that we recently decided to just book through them (even with the higher price). However, this stay at Shorebreak made... More

Recent 1 night stay was my first and, if all my stays are this gratifying, I will definitely be back for more. The hotel staff were all excellent - professional, great attitude and friendly. The city view room with balcony was well appointed and larger than most rooms I stay in. Decor fits well with the surroundings and has a... More

My husband and I stayed here on a Saturday night with our dog. The hotel room was beautiful with a balcony overlooking the Strand in Huntington Beach. The sliding barn door on the bathroom was a unique touch. Beautiful sunken bathtub and very comfortable bed. They provided an extra comfortable pet that our dog loved as well as plenty of... More

We decided to splurge on this hotel and were not disappointed! As we were checking in to the hotel, we were greeted with a glass of wine during the Wine Hour. The hotel is in a great location, just a minute from the pier and beach, with little noise during the night. The room was exceptional; clean, well maintained and... More

Superb location! A few steps across the street and your on the Beach! Excellent value! Very nice accommodations. Friendly staff. Easy valet parking, walk inside and take the elevator to the top floor. If your room isn't ready, no worries they have relaxing spacious areas to kick back or hit the bar and start the vacation! Have fur babies? I... More

Spent one night and wish I could have stayed a week. Great hotel in an awesome location. Mike at check in was super friendly, the food in the restaurant was darn good, room service was quick and the valet was available 24 hours. Would definitely stay here again.

A last minute trip with my teenage daughter to celebrate her birthday. Friendly staff, trendy furnishings, walking distance to tons of shops, restaurants & of course, the beach! Valet parking highly recommended.
