Stayed here for a couple of days with a friend that was traveling for business. The room was a tad bit noisy, but not unbearable. As for the other amenities, you cannot go wrong. The view is great, looks right down to the beach. The pool is great and the service even better. Received great customer service from the valet,...

You wont need to look for the right place to watch the sunset, you are bathed in it at just about any place you choose, excellent service and quick and efficient staff . The furnishings are updated , the rooms are sparkling clean .

They did a good job putting this building together. When we were in our room, we couldn't hear a peep from any of our adjacent rooms. Everything was in top condition with no signs of wear and tear. Our balcony view provided views of both the ocean and the pool. And equally important, the beds were very comfortable. It's pretty...

If you love the ocean this is definetly where you want to stay. Every part of the hotel had some part of an ocean view and even better cross the street and you were in it. Pool area was nice, plenty of seating. Walk outside the hotel and you are in the middle of great restaurants, shopping, beach, and if...

So it's been another year, time for another review of my favorite place to stay - the Hilton Waterfront in Huntington Beach. This time - 10 nights. I was fortunate enough to stay in one of the Junior Suites, which I think is a great value. You have a lot of extra room, you get a sofa bed if needed,...

Had a wonderful 2 days here for our Anniversary. Everyone was so nice and the view from our 9th floor corner balcony suite overlooking the Pacific was fabulous! Would recommend staying there, especially for a special occasion.

Room was not what we were told it would be as far as an ocean view. Talked to others who were duped as well and staff could have cared less. Not The HILTON way what so ever. The fact that what we booked and what we received and what we were told were two separate things.

Dear Michael J., Thank you for your comments. We have reviewed your reservation history and are completely baffled by your disappointment. You specifically requested connecting rooms with an ocean view, which is what we delivered. I can assure you, we "dupe" no one and our goal is complete guest satisfaction. We are so sorry to have let you down in...

Spent a few days here and was very pleased. Perfectly located across street from Beach and 10 minute walk to downtown shops and restaurants. Resort-like facility with heated pool and hot tub. Terrific dining and extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Concierge spent considerable time with us planning events in LA. Heavy construction going on next door on South side. Highly...

This is an older hotel, the corridors are smallish, ceiling low, balcony tight. Mechanical issues with the room, toilet runs on and on, bathroom outlet doesn't hold plugs. All things you'd expect with an older updated property. The Pacific Coast Hwy running in front of the hotel does make for a noisy open window experience. All that said, the property...
