“Great Escape Close To L.A.”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

This is absolutely the "un 5star" experience. Super friendly staff and incredibly dog friendly. We have a corner suite on the ocean and it's nice, it's not Four Seasons or Fairmont nice, but it's nice.

Grab a last minute special on hotels.com or Hilton's web page and bring the dogs :-)

Room Tip: Get a corner suite on a high floor

My husband, daughter, and I just returned home to Arizona from our visit to The Waterfront Beach Resort. I wanted to say thank you for your efforts in making our stay possible. I was so excited when I won the "Ingredient of the Month" contest on your hotel's Facebook page and a night's stay at the resort, and I so appreciate that you were able to accommodate us during the summer. We wish we could have stayed longer, but our window of availability did not allow for it. We did, however, make the most of our stay, and I know that we will be back to visit again someday!

Thank you again for your help in making our brief vacation so wonderful. Staying at The Waterfront is a real luxury for our family, so we are truly thankful for the opportunity.

This hotel is amazing. To start off, we arrived without a reservation...not by choice...I thought I had booked, but apparently, had not. The front desk staff was super accommodating while I checked online for a better rate than what they could offer. We were upgraded to ocean view room due to our diamond status. Our room was amazing with southern views for miles down the ocean towards Newport Beach. The room was well-stocked with toiletries and brochures about things to do at the hotel and nearby. The room was very clean, remodeled and quiet. The pool staff was very prompt and informative. The towels were plentiful. There was a dj poolside on the weekend. The breakfast at Shades was amazing. I'm not a 'buffet-eater' as I don't usually eat that much to justify the cost. But with our diamond status we had a $15 credit towards the $22 cost and it was well worth it. Wonderful assortment of fresh and made to order omelets. Highly recommend. The sundry shop was well-stocked, including Starbucks coffee and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this hotel and return.

Room Tip: North side rooms will offer both pool and ocean views

I live in Torrance, but spent my birthday weekend not too far away at this Huntington Beach location. It felt like I was truly on vacation! The staff were all very nice and quite accommodating. We had a great time at the pool and stayed at the hotel for dinner. Great poolside Polynesian fire show was a treat. Definitely would recommend!!

Hotel was very clean and all staff was very hospitable and outstanding. The staff continually asked if we needed anything at all. They greeted us every time we saw them. It was awesome. Breakfast was good and sufficient. Pool staff very attentive. Concierges went out of their way to assist in our needs.

We spent the most fantastic 3 days at this hotel. Everything from the service, rooms and other amenities were impeccable. Watching the sun set over the ocean was a true "California" experience. We cannot wait to go back again.

One of the best hotel experiences we've ever had! The quality of every area of the hotel is excellent! And right across the street from beautiful Huntington Beach! The view is amazing, food is delicious, staff is so friendly, efficient and helpful.
