The hotel is very nice. However, be aware that there is a major construction project going on at the south side of the hotel It is very noisy and can easily be heard in the room and it is too loud to go out on the balcony. I was disappointed to find out the room is the same rate as... More

Stunning room, superb sea view and a great location, staff were all extremely friendly and the food in the restaurant was sublime. On the minus side... More

The location is one of the best things about the Hotel and Joseph Bower our contact was really helpful. The hotel is a tired old Hilton you can find worldwide but not good enough in 2016. The same old ridculous phone systems, very poorly enabled technology wise and expensive charges. Facilities are poor. Nice staff but much better hotels nearby... More

Terrific location, right across from the beach and near the Huntington Beach pier. But... new tower is under construction which has had a significant impact on noise and views. Only the even numbered rooms look away from the construction zone, the rest (especially lower floors) have a "great" view of the all-day activity. The biggest issue is that service is... More

Back then we didn't have any hotels lining the opposite side of PCH - just oil rigs and cottages. We... More

We had a very nice stay ,they are building next door and the noise was a bit loud however the hours they worked were accomadating. The location of this hotel is wonderful and the beach view is amazing. The bartender and the valet young men offered some of the best service I have ever seen.
