“Birthday Getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort is an amazing weekend getaway. Right across the street from the beach and down the street from great restaurants. This hotel is so beautiful! We had a balcony suite that overlooked PCH with stunning views of Huntington Beach. Friendly staff, great food and atmosphere. For a quick weekend getaway, I highly recommend this hotel. Kid and pet friendly as well.

Room Tip: Choose a higher level, with a balcony overlooking the PCH. 6th floor or higher.

This is a great weekend get-away place! Always clean, friendly and helpful staff and the most AMAZING views of anyplace along PCH. Huntington Beach is all about doing nothing and relaxing, and the Hilton Waterfront helps you with that objective! The only recommendation is adding more "Hilton" flair to the property and an mild update to the rooms and general area's. All in all a GREAT place, Thanks Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort!

If your planning a trip to Southern California and want a taste of the California life style I would recommend staying at The Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort rooms are 50 yards from the sand in beautiful Huntington Beach California, With so many daily things to do you can learn to surf or paddleboard or take a walk to the Huntington Beach pier or enjoy there awesome pool! The resort is always clean and the personnel are top notch and always ready to serve you.

Room Tip: Go for the top floors! The views looking North or South to the beautiful Pacific Ocean, Yes you can...

The Hilton Waterfront Hotel at Huntington Beach is a terrific hotel, with great staff and an amazing view and access to the Pacific Ocean. The business conference center was professional and well appointed and our rooms were delightful. We'll be back time and again for both business and pleasure.

Hotel is located on the edge of Huntington Beach across the street from the beach. Our room was a corner suite with a good view, but the trees did a good job of blocking most of it. The hotel in general is old and in need of new ownership such as Days Inn, as the expected upscale quality of a Hilton just wasn't there. Moved on to Santa Monica for the balance of our trip and have a wonderful stay.

Dear Anonymous Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to express your feelings regarding your stay here at The Waterfront. I am sorry to hear that you did not feel your balcony view was adequate from your corner suite...and to think we just had those darned palm trees trimmed too! Nevertheless, I have asked our grounds keepers to take a another look and see if there is anything further we can do (without harming the trees themselves). We here at The Waterfront are both environmentally sensitive and keenly aware of what our guests expect to see when they get here (like palm trees).

I appreciate you giving us the opportunity to improve our AAA rated "Four Diamond" property yet again as we strive to continuously enhance the quality of our guest's experience. We take great pride in the hotel, her staff and the four-diamond status we have maintained for over 22 years (and counting).

Safe journeys to you and yours.

Sincerely,

Scott O'Hanlon
Director of Marketing
The Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel
