The staff at this hotel were amazing. They were all pleasant and eager to make our stay the best experience possible. The whole resort was clean and well maintained. Booking all of our excursions through the concierge was the way to go. She made sure we had all of the information we needed and made great suggestions. The beach bonfire,... More

From the start, expectations were high due to the price and the location. This was not my first time at a upper level Hilton resort and it can be hit or miss so I was cautiously optimistic. Customer service was excellent with all staff being very courteous. The room was clean and well kept and had a mini fridge which... More

Amazing view from our suite. Room was very spacious and clean. Looking out the balcony you see the pacific coast highway and then the beach. Breathtaking view. Highway does get loud during certain times of the day/evening. (It's the motorcycles) Walking distance to the beach and the pier. You can rent beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys free by the...

We stayed in one of the ocean view suites. Although they were a bit pricey the view was amazing. Waking up in the morning staring at the ocean was perfect. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. The hotel was very clean. There is plenty to do within walking distance. I will definitely be back.

The room is lovely, and appreciated the ease of getting a roll-away bed for our child, but the room was not very clean-greasy finger prints all over sliding glass door to patio and balcony rail was dirty and sticky to the touch (appeared to never have been cleaned. Phones in room were filthy and I had to wipe them down... More

Stayed here with family when first opened and came back for a couple of days and was not disappointed. The staff is incredibly helpful and professional, which to me is almost as important as the accommodations. The King studio suite we stayed in was immaculate, and the view was unbeatable. Staff members such as Cathy at the pool ( I... More

I stayed at this hotel for a 3 day business trip. The staff was over the top friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful very comfortable with a good but not great view. Cant help if construction is going on.

We loved our stay at the Hilton Waterfront. The room was great. All of the rooms at this particular hotel have a minimum of a partial ocean view. We will definitely consider staying here again on our next visit to California. Hilton delivers yet again!

For the price i paid for the room for one night, which was $439, you would think this very wealthy company could afford to give their guests a continental breakfast, or even a damn bagel or doughnut! something free besides shampoo
