Staff are very helpful and friendly. I wish we could have stayed a couple more days. The downside as others have already said is that valet is forced on you. I don't know if you can have your parking validated if you have a meal there as a guest staying in the hotel. Didn't think to ask. The first night... More

My wife and I stayed at the Waterfront Beach Resort this Fall while visiting our daughter in Anaheim. We wanted a hotel that was less than 30 minutes from our daughter, was away from LA traffic, was in walking distance to local dining, and provided a relaxing setting. We also wanted to spend some time at Disneyland. This hotel met... More

Had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Hilton. I hate paying for valet but I must admit that they were amazing. Beautiful location. Recommend the fish tacos at Shades. Worth booking the waterfront high floor to get an amazing view. All the staff were fantastic and you can tell they take pride in great service.

Comfy beds and great location. better maintained than in past. Stayed there for about 15 years plus once or twice a year. Staff are all professional. Continental breakfast is the worst feature. And getting worse. if you dont like melon or dry pastry...Fruit selection is unacceptable. Plus they close the bar early if not enough people around. Stay out of... More

Started our 14 night trip at this hotel and we were so pleased with it. We stayed 3 nights. The hotel and grounds are spotless and the outside pool and dining area are lovely. Particularly liked the large fire pit. Huntington Beach was a great location for a chilled beach vibe, highly recommended.

My husband surprised me with a romantic weekend getaway. Although we tend to spend our alone time in Santa Barbara/Solvang area, since it was a last minute decision we decided to try something new. Everyone was very friendly. We had a wonderful time. Although there was a bit of trouble with the plumbing, the staff was very accommodating. We will... More

We stayed the night here because its where my cousin had his wedding reception. I love this hotel. I love their restaurant, Shades...it's one of my favorite places to dine. Make sure to check them out especially at happy hour. Request Lauren as your server. She is awesome! Only thing that was annoying was the 4pm check in. They knew... More

This property is absolutely stunning. We had a fabulous view of the ocean and also overlooked an area where there were no less than 4 weddings over the weekend. They were beautiful. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. From the moment we drove up to the moment we left it was obvious that they were committed to... More

We attended a wedding here and it was great for that. In fact there were three weddings going on that day. All was good except for an event called Bulls on the Beach right across the street. Loud, smelly, yikes. The hotel claimed they didn't know it was going to be there when the wedding was booked but I think... More

Dear BethAnnSH123, No one was more surprised by the size and scope of this event than we were here at the hotel. Quite simply, our jaws dropped as the whole thing got underway! We are so sorry for inconvenience and disturbance this may have caused for you and your guests. While not directly related to us in any way, the... More

This was our second stay at this property and the beautiful weather made this even easier to write. The location, is two blocks from Main Street in Huntington Beach "Surf City". The people, food and town are completely California beach friendly. Even better the whole town and the hotel are pet friendly, they embrace it! The hotel staff are accommodating,... More
