This is one of the most relaxing hotels I've ever stayed in. I travel often to Huntington and pay the premium to stay at this property. The view of the beach is unforgettable and the service is outstanding. The coffee bar in the morning and drinks in the evening are a wonderful touch and make for a relaxing stay. The...

Absolutely the best place to stay if you are taking older teens (17- 19 year olds) to Disneyland and you don't want the little kid experience. This is a mature yet not "adults-only" type of vacation spot. The hotel was spotless with a state-of-the art modern feel and hip vibe. People walk around the lobby with their dogs on a...

We stayed at the Kimpton for two nights in August while travelling California and it was one of the best hotels we stayed in during our journey. It had a very cool and relaxed vibe and the staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The room itself was nice with a huge bathroom! The bed was comfortable and the room was...

Second time in LA, first was with a friend and you don't realise how easy things are until you have to catch the shared bus down to Huntington Beach, we had to wait 30minutes for the bus, I think it was super shuttle. We got to see John Wayne airport and we went to a families house in the "Irvine"...

Our two night stay was our first as Inner Circle members and the staff could not have been more welcoming and accomodating. We were upgraded to a ocean view corner room with a huge outdoor space. We were a bit concerned that there may be street noise as the room faced the PCH, but that ended up not to be...

We stayed two nights during the week. Hubby told me how the valet parking worked, but when I arrived separately after-hours, I didn't initially see the after-hours valet sign directing people to go straight to the parking garage entrance. Instead, I had to drive around the block a second time before seeing the sign (it could have been lit better)....

First off...amazing staff! Everyone was friendly each time I interacted with them. The dogs around the hotel were a nice touch. The room was in need of some upkeep. I was told that they're going to remodel the hotel and that's probably a good thing. The place offers free bikes, surfboards, and coffee. Plus a small happy hour. Twin beds...

Spent Thanksgiving night here, however, was not going to pay $70 per person for Thanksgiving meal. The free wine hour and free smores were a nice surprise. We enjoyed our ocean front room with patio. Keep in mind, patio is larger than a balcony when reserving. Look forward to another visit.

Some things just didnt create a feel good stay. Location was by the beach, but on a main street so arriving alone at night wasnt comfortable. Room was very clean but very tiny. I hated the shower design. Towels were thin. But morning coffee was delivered with a smile and fresh fruit. Very tailored to young beach people.
