“Good property for a relaxing stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I stayed at this property during a business event next door at the Hyatt Huntington Beach and found it to be very comfortable and a bit less "corporate" than a lot of the places I stay. The rooms were up to date and lovely - I had a very nice balcony that looked out on the beach and the restaurant, while small, had a good menu and provided better than average service.

I stay in a lot of Hilton Hotels... this is a step up from most and, while it's not a Four Seasons or a Ritz Carlton, it is a relaxing place to stay and very comfortable. I would definately stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: Suggest asking for a beach view room on a higher floor... great vista of Huntington Beach and one of...

For the end of another West Coast road trip, we chose the Hilton here again. This was the RIGHT choice! Lovely property, well maintained, super staff, perfect location. We made use of beach chairs and boogie boards which were FOC, and really enjoyable. Nice small pool area, close to the beach and a nice walk up to Huntington Beach 'town'. Surf Hero shop/cafe is a new addition and super one at that - lovely sandwich and a cocktail. Shades restaurant is perfect for breakfast and dinner - food and staff are both absolutely 1st class. The local Hertz rental will collect your hire car from here I learned this time - useful. Enjoyed the evenings sat round one of the large gas firepits. The perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the sea. For us Brits, the sea was plenty warm enough in late October! Highly recommended hotel.

Room Tip: Choose sunrise or sunset, your choice. Sunset faces HB pier.

Spent 4 nights here. Room was small and clean but bathroom not quite as clean as I'd like it. The service at Shades was terrible. Had to ask for our wine again after 15+ minutes and flag someone down to order our food. Bus person was attentive though.
The girls working at the Market were very friendly and highly recommend grabbing drinks, etc here. Jack the concierge was fantastic! Wish everyone was great as he was!
While the valet staff were nice, didn't really like being forced to use valet at $26 per night.
Wish they would include internet in the room cost or at least have complimentary wi-fi in the lobby area.

Spent two wonderful nights in the HB Hilton Waterfront Resort. Had a great room on the 12th floor. The room was fresh and updated and we had a great view of the beach & pier.

Resturant was good with live music in the evenings.

Room Tip: Room 1222 is an excellent choice

Stayed here for two nights on business. They upgraded my room, so I stayed on the tenth floor with a nice view of the ocean. The room was large, clean, and updated. Location is just across from the beach and a short walk to shopping and restaurants. Access to Pacific Highway is right in front which made travel to and from meetings a breeze.

Fabulous property with lovely pool area, restaurant, and gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean from both our room and at the Shades Restauant. Extremely courteous staff, friendly, and very hospitable. Great food at the restaurant including both appetizers and main course.

This hotel is in a great location with great views. The service is great and people are friendly. The rooms are upgraded and comfortable as well. A great hotel for honeymoon or with family! They allow dogs as well. There is only one thing that could be improved. They need more servers for breakfast at Shades!
