Because I travel a lot and have so many choices of hotels, a hotel has to meet specific criteria for me to stay more than once. This resort hotel hits the criteria and then some out of the ballpark! Our second and recent stay was just as lovely as our first. Both the exterior and public space interior give a... More

My husband and I just got back from our 3rd trip to Huntington Beach staying at the Hilton Waterfront resort. We fell in love with this little town and this great hotel back a few years, and have tried to make it for a quick trip each January. Our favorite room so far has been a 3rd floor room, facing...

Our stay experience was excellent in every way. Staff attentiveness throughout (valet, front desk, restaurants, and especially concierge) was terriffic. Hotel location overseeing "surfer city" was unique in relaxation and entertainment. Also the boardwalk and nearby pier are so convenient for leisure walking or running. The hotel is also just half mile form Main Street and all fun activities there.

This is a great hotel in a great location. The rooms are very nice and clean, nice lobby, restaurant and pool facilities were fantastic and beach is across the street. Our family had a great long weekend vacation here. Would definitely come back here.

The hotel was so beautiful and very clean. All of the staff was so friendly. This was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had! We had excellent help with our bags as we were greeted by Trevor in valet. Sarah at the front desk checked us in and was very friendly. Daniel was also very welcoming. The... More

The one night we had was a perfect end to our Company Holiday party. The room was great, we were on the 10th floor, love the new furnishings and the room service breakfast this morning was great. Last night we sat at a packed bar and the two bartenders were great and offered excellent service even though they were slammed.... More

We are here now. I can't even begin to say how disappointed with our stay! There is a convention here and it is very noisy! We paid for a beach view room and are located over the pool. It is extremely noisy with the convention! My husband and I can't sleep and it sounds worse than teenagers on spring break!... More

Spent a week at this very nice hotel. My only complaint is being able to hear people shower from the room next door. Every room has a beautiful view of the ocean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. For the price of the stay free wifi should have been provided.
