“As good as everyone said.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This place did not disappoint. We went for a family trip with our 3 and 4 year olds. They loves the easy direct access to the beach, the water slides, and feeding the coys in front of the spa.

Would definitely return.

I live in LA and spend plenty of time at the beach so the location itself didn't wow me. I am sure for a visitor coming from the heartland this will be a stunning location to be at. My review will focus just on the resort itself.

I have stayed at three Hyatt Resorts and have found them overall similar in amenities. This one impressed me by the service. There is an attention to detail that comes from experienced management that this place gets. For example, I asked for a newspaper in the morning and it was delivered to my door within five minutes. When we checked out, the lady asked us if we would also like for her to call for our car to be brought out of valet. As we left the fellow asked us if we needed directions anywhere. These are the proactive attention to detail behavior that marks a well run hotel. I found this among all the employees I dealt with and it was obvious that they had been well trained in this approach. The other nice thing was that everyone seemed genuinely happy to be serving us. A cheery demeanor goes a long way in dealing with guests.

The biggest drawback that I found was unfortunately the bed and pillows. My preference is not a soft bed and pillows that I drown in like a waterbed. I kept on waking up as my body contorted into strange shapes to fit the bed's fickle nature. I am not sure if this is indicative of the hotel but I found an earlier review describing a similar experience. The other negative was this strange rumbling sound that occurred in the middle of the night almost every hour that sounded like an ice machine going off. Regretfully I did not sleep well at all while we were there.

As my wife and I left we asked ourselves if this was a place where we would come back to for another weekend getaway and the answer was to the affirmative. I suppose that is as good a vote of confidence as any.

Great hotel, a few blocks outside of Huntigton Beach Downtown but still in walking distance.

The hotel is located at the Pacific Highway, but this is not disturbing. The hotel offers a very nice resort layout with multiple pools, a small shopping arcade and a bridge that directly connects directly to the beach.

My room had certainly 5 star standard and was spotless clean. Only difficulty is due to the size to find you way around the first time.

I experienced the staff as very professional and extremly friendly.

Will stay here again!

Room Tip: Get a Room facing to the pool and not the the street.

Stayed in an ocean view room with my 5 year old son and other half for 4 nights. We have a lovely stay, relaxing, quiet and welcomed by the very friendly staff. As we didn't want a huge breakfast everyday the on-site cafe and grocery store was perfect, serving hot drinks, a wide range of cereals for my son that he never gets at home (froot loops, cheerios) and granola and yoghurt for his dad. There is also free 2 hour wifi service there. Also the complimentary pack of 'smores was very charming. There are lots of little nooks with fire-places always lit and fire pits to sit around. Our boy loved the kids swimming pool and also wanted to go in the "bubbles" bath - the outdoor hot-tub with us. At the weekend there were two weddings and one huge conference during the week but the resort is so well-designed that all the big events go on without disturbing you. The location is great. Not too far away to walk to the shops and restaurants for us but we are English and used to walking - 1/2 mile at the most. The beach is just over the PCH on the bridge. The car valets are always helpful and there is always someone opening the front door for you and greets you with a smile. Its a big resort but very well-thought out. Nothing critical to say at all. And we will return.

I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa for our Seacret conference and it was lovely. I can't say enough about the stay here. When I arrived, everyone was very friendly and helpful. My room was upgraded for free and the view was WONDERFUL!!!! Our conference room was lovely and well stocked. There were plenty of signs so that we all knew where to go. Room service was the fastest I have seen in any hotel. The food was wonderful and we can tell that there is love in the kitchen. I would happily recommend this hotel to others and stay there again!

Room Tip: When you arrive, ask if they have an upgrade available.

We stayed here for two days/nights in September. Having driven by this property so many times living this area, I came upon an actual need for a hotel/resort and quickly thought of this property. If you're thinking of a well maintained hotel with a high-end touch, think no more than the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach.

We booked a standard view room with the internet/parking/breakfast package and were happily granted an upgrade to a partial ocean view room by the pool. You often worry about rooms close to the pool and the noise but the dual paned sliders and sealing kept out any unwanted noises from the pool area or PCH. The room was top notch Hyatt quality - bedding, furnishing, bathroom, shampoo and soaps. The room was well cleaned and maintained daily and I even complimented the female lead of the maintainence team for the excellent service and touch up.

We utilized the pools and numerous hot tubs, water slides, and beach cruiser rentals. The walkway over PCH from the resort to immediate beach access was extremely convenient. And the buffet breakfast each morning couldn't have been more easy or satisfying. Overall, this is an extremely pleasant place to spend a few days truly right at the beach.

Room Tip: Always ask for a free upgrade. You might be very pleasantly surprised.
