“Great hotel, great food, great pool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I love this hotel! It's modern-feeling, the staff is friendly, and the restaurant overlooking the pool is the best. The poolside service is awesome. The rooms are very nice and clean. The location is great too - overlooking Huntington Beach and is even walking distance from the downtown area.

Loved our two day stay at this great hotel. Friendly and easy check-in and prompt, courteous and efficient staff. Rooms were well-appointed and luxurious. A small balcony allowed for a view of the ocean and the center court of the hotel with a pool and outdoor restaurant. The pool area is supplied with very comfy chairs. Sadly, no pool service this time of year but drinks can be had at the bar restaurant as short walk across the pool patio.

Room Tip: By selecting a sunrise room (facing south) at you are ensured that you are not bothered by the festi...

The service, ambiance and location of this hotel were absolutely excellent. The rooms are fresh and clean and almost all seem to have a great view of the ocean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Southern California area. It's also less than a 20 minute drive from the Santa Anna John Wayne airport.

I stayed here with a friend for two nights in early November, 2013. I am a bit fussing when it comes to hotels. This hotel did not disappoint at all. The location was ideal. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Especially the valet service which was efficient, timely and very pleasant. We took advantage of the shuttle service to and from Main Street Huntington Beach. The pool looked lovely and I cannot wait to get back to use it. Time did not permit. Rooms were were very comfortable and we were fortunate to have a balcony overlooking the Pacific. This was very special as it was my travel buddy 's first visit to California and the Pacific Ocean. I especially liked the gift shop, it was great for gifts, tee shirts and cold medicine!!

This is truly a beautiful hotel. It is located right on the Pacific Ocean. The views are incredible. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Those ocean views are absolutely incredible. The staff was excellent. I highly recommend this hotel.

Superb hotel, stunning beauty in a comfortable environment. Gorgeous grounds and décor, yet very friendly to all types... including the surfers walking through the luxurious lobby with sandy surfboards under their arms.

Room Tip: If you get a beach view, "Sunset" view has more to offer than the "Sunrise" view...

Amazing staff that were so outgoing, friendly, helpful and really helped make our stay memorable! They went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed. They made us feel as if we were the only guests in the hotel. We came for our daughters 11th birthday and trip to Disneyland. They were awesome making sure we knew where we were going and the best routes to take. The bed felt a little hard the first night, but after that it was great! The pool/spa wonderful and right across from Huntington Beach! The breakfast buffet was outstanding! We will DEFINATELY stay here again. It is a GREAT family hotel!
