My wife and I decided to do an "us only" Thanksgiving trip to Huntington Beach to get away from the San Francisco Bay Area and enjoy some beach time in Southern California. My wife had never been in the LA area so she was really looking forward to the trip and I was equally excited as I really like the... More

What a FANTASTIC group of accommodating people. No matter if I am in town for business or visiting family, this hotel is EXCELLENT when it comes to serving their clients. They have a system that allows every person to know what is going on so you don't feel like you have a disconnect in needs or service. Lots of annoying... More

Thank you Hailey Nelson, Front Desk, for the special birthday wish and gift! My husband and I had just travelled 5 hours in the rain and I was greeted by Hailey who was welcoming with a big smile. We arrived way before check in time but she found a room that was ready and got us all checked in. We... More

Debated where to go over the holiday week. Considered Hawaii but have to say so glad we chose to go to CA. Loved this hotel- the service - location and our room. Dogs were welcome- they were able to go almost everywhere we went. Great food options all in walking distance. Human and dog beach were perfect!

Just spent 3 nights at this hotel! It is centrally located along Pacific Coast Highway and just walking blocks from Pacific City, a shopping area and Main Street with restaurants and shopping opportunities. The ocean views and sunsets were stunning from our balcony on the 12th floor! The service was outstanding from the wonderful concierge, Tammy, to the valet parking... More

Even during renovations these guys are doing a fantastic job, 5 start hotel for certain. My husband and I stayed here while away on business and my husband screwed up and only booked two nights instead of the 3 we needed. On top of that he'd booked an oceanfront room through Priceline but what the website did after confirmation was... More

This hotel was located with great access to the beach and the room and facilities were first class. To my surprise when I arrived, I had to pay $34 per night for valet parking. There are no options to park anywhere else and it certainly wasn't advertised.

We had a great stay here! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The balcony and ocean view were bonuses. The check in by phone was easy and we loved that we could pick a room even though we were still traveling through California to get there. The staff was amazingly friendly and welcoming. I will be staying here again!
