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. The only negative was the front desk person. The gentleman that checked me in was very nice and efficient. I was paying for an ocean view, so... More

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend visit and had a great time. Views of the beach are amazing from both sides, but the south side has construction going on. Fortunately there is no construction work going on during the weekend so it was not disruptive to us. Rooms are clean and spacious, staff is friendly and... More

The hotel is very beautiful. All of the staff are very friendly and professional. I feel the staff go above and beyond in regards to customer service for their guests. The views of Huntington Beach and the Pacific were outstanding from our balcony. I can't wait to return.

In the middle of the up-and-coming Huntington Beach shopping mall with amazing restaurants in walking distance . Directly across from the beach, great pool service, yummy food. They are building a brand-new tower and amenities including spa services – can't wait!'

Pros - Central location to the beach, the pier, Main Street, Pacific City shopping and restaurants - all within easy walking distance.

Five star experience. The staff is customer focused. Location is perfect for walking to beach or Pacific City. The car stayed in the garage the entire stay. If walking isn't an option, there is a Mercedes shuttle for free available every hour on the hour. Looking forward to spending my birthday there again next year.
