Stayed 3 nights here with 2 older teenagers and had a great time. The rooms are good - very clean, comfy bed and we loved our ocean view. It is noisy with balcony door open but the double glazing does a good job of keeping out the road noise at night. We loved the fact that you could get beach... More

1. Great location – you are about a half hour drive away from John Wayne (SNA) airport, Disneyland and a bunch of other local attractions. 2. There is a twice daily shuttle to/from Disneyland. 3. The beach is about a 1 minute walk across the Pacific Coast Highway. The PCH gets a little busy during the day, but there are... More

We had such a great experience at the waterfront. The grounds were beautiful, the rooms were spacious enough with a beautiful view. The restaurant had great food & drink specials. Every employee we worked with was incredibly helpful & so nice. Everyplace we wanted to go was walking distance. We can't wait to get back right away!

I highly recommend the king-size bedroom for couples who's visiting Huntington beach. The hotel room was super clean and the view from our balcony on the 9th floor was just breathtaking. We watched the sunset every night from our bedroom, it was very romantic.

Having stayed at the Hyatt previously I was expecting the Hilton to be a similar resort having stayed at many Hilton hotel's this is overpriced and needs upgrading. It is not anywhere near the same standard as the Hyatt. I did stay during the Vans Open but still paid way over the odds for this hotel. Staff were friendly room... More

Best of a resort hotel with beach access across the street. Hotel provides beach chairs, towels, etc. Heated pool was a little on the warm side and a tad smaller than I was expecting. Shades restaurant has great food. Quiet room. Only wish the bathroom had ventilation.

To be honest, the Hilton was my second choice. I had a great stay at the Hyatt a few years ago and wanted to stay there again but it was booked. We stayed here for three nights that were by far the best of our vacation. The beach and the pool were the best parts. Service was great from the... More

I love Hilton properties and spent a week at the Hilton Anaheim before this resort. The resort is very nice and clean and had beautiful views and balconies. But being a smoker the property is a non smoking hotel. You can smoke on the outside in front or back of the hotel but you are not able to use the... More

This is the best escape from L.A., it's close by, great location, outstanding service. The views and grounds are beyond pleasant and the rooms are surprisingly quiet for being a beach front property. We can't wait to go back
