This is a great place. Not only are the amenities great, the locality to the beach, dining, and shopping is what makes this the place to stay. We actually would not have had to leave the hotel to have a great vacation. It is going to even get better when the construction is complete and the resort doubles in size.

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at The Waterfront Beach Resort. The location was fantastic. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. When we checked in late afternoon, we were very pleasantly surprised to find ourselves upgraded from an oceanfront double to a one-bedroom suite with a wraparound balcony. For the most part, the newly-remodeled suite was... More

We only stayed at this hotel for one night and it seemed to meet every expectation. Upon arrival, we were greeted promptly and politely. As hilton honors silver we were given 2 complementary water bottles. Our room was not ready upon arrival so they gave us a text when it was. There is valet parking only at this hotel for... More

Location may say it all. However, let's be frank: it's between two competing hotels that have more modern appeal, seen from the outside. ANd yet, I would come back to the Hilton Waterfront. Service was impeccable, kind, cheerful. I have rarely seen a work environment where people are so calm but helpful and seem to enjoy what they do, with... More

I had a one night stay at this Hilton in Huntington Beach, CA. Just across the street from the Pacific Ocean. We had room 728, which is ocean front. Fabulous view of the beach and ocean. Excellent bedding, and this room had a pull out couch that could sleep one or two more. The best part of this hotel is... More

Everything was so awesome about this place. The staff was amazingly friendly and super courteous. We have a couple are on the beach and surfing more so than in any hotel we stayed in but because of the amenities at the pool deck we were there more so than any other hotel we stayed at.

My sister and I stayed here last week. The resort is beautiful, lush, right across the street from the beach. The valet guys were awesome and attentive, the pool people polite and accommodating.
