“Beautiful property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

My dauthers and I stayed here in May for a mother/daughter getaway and had a wonderful time! The property is clean and meticulously groomed, the accommodations are luxurious, the food is delicious, the staff is very personable, and the views are unbelievable! We were on the top floor and enjoyed sunrise rooms. The balcony was a wonderful place to put up your feet and look out over the ocean. The hotel is within walking distance to the beach, the pier, and the many shops and eateries on Main Street. I would hightly recommend this property to others.

First time visit to this location and it was really nice. Great staff, especially Tammy Thurlow at the Concierge desk who gave us all kinds of recommendations on places to eat, visit and directions. No matter what we asked she spent the time investigating it until she had the answer. She was excellent. The room was clean and well kept. There were some minor issues but future capital spending at this Hilton will correct those issues. Overall I give our visit here 5 STARS.

Room Tip: Higher floors will have better views if that is what you are looking for.

After just completing my 3rd stay at this Hilton I have again had a great experience.
The first two times I came as a teenager with my family. Had good memories and just brought my wife back this past week to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. Everyone including the Valet guys, front desk staff, restaurant servers, and pool staff were extremely friendly!
They knew it was our anniversary and had a bottle of champagne in our room for us one evening!!
I really like the location. Not so close to downtown HB that it's hectic, but close enough that its an easy walk to shopping, food, and the pier!

This has been the best Hilton I have stayed at. Love the hotel and its surroundings. There health club is amazing. You have to check it out. I love the fountain with the view. You are walking distance to beach,shops,and dinners. Everything about this hotel is five star. I will for sure be back to visit some day.

My recent stay at the Hilton Waterfront Resort far exceeded my expectations! I was instantly captivated by the stunning ocean views and the overall beauty of the hotel and the property. Although the hotel is not literally located directly on the beach, the beach is easily accessible via a crosswalk. The staff was truly excellent - very friendly and welcoming. The room itself was quite clean, cozy, and comfortable. I wish I could have stayed longer! I will definitely be back to this hotel in the near future!

I would expect with the large number of children at this hotel there would be more than 1 pool and spa. Excellent if you have lots of small children, rethink this hotel if you are with adults. In general the staff was nice but clearly summer jobs for high school students. There was little hotel pride shown by most staff. I expected better.

The Huntington Hilton is a wonderful place to stay with small children. Our 4 year old behaved quite well during meals and had a great time at the pool. The hotel was so kid friendly, we actually had the majority of our meals at the hotel (we usually like eating off site). We will be back!
