This hotel provides an absolute enjoyable relaxing stay whether it be for one day or days on end. Right on PCH and a quick walk across the street has you laying on the beach. Service is impeccable. Rooms are a little pricey, but the ocean front rooms are a delight and roomy! Staff members are professional, courteous and helpful. Never...

Great location, beautiful room (with view!), easy walk across the street to the glorious beach. We received complimentary breakfast vouchers and were able to borrow sand toys from the bell desk to play on the beach. Very nice pool and hot tub. Also an excellent gym. :)

Came back for a return visit here at The Waterfront. Service level remains high with friendly, professional service. The staff was knowledgeable and offered helpful suggestions on nearby sights and restaurants. Delicious breakfast, and a convenient location made for another enjoyable stay.

Location is perfect. Views from room and balcony don't cost you extra, but are lovely. Walking distance shops and restaurants. Better to dine off site. Rooms spacious. Relaxing break. Despite central location rooms very quiet.

It would be also better to give guest a choice of self-parking or valad parking because sometime a guest might...

Stayed two nights for a business event here. I didn't have much of a chance to enjoy the hotel, but appreciated the location (including a free shuttle to the nearby restaurant thoroughfare on the beach). I was especially impressed with the meeting room used for my event: in addition to meeting tables, there was a nice bar area, and it...

Was here on a business trip. excellent service, especially from Elisa, the housekeeper for my room. Front desk was great and everyone was hard working. Just a minor bit negative is that the fridges are loud and the internet is slow. In addition, the walls are very thin. If you dont want to hear any noise from the other rooms,...

I was here on a four day business trip, for a conference. The Hilton has a great location, right at the beach, and is very clean. Every time I walked through the hotel, someone was cleaning or dusting! They seem proud of their hotel. Food was good at all our sessions. Saved the best for last: the staff was AMAZING!...

Clean, friendly staff, right near the main strip/pier. Only picked it because it was near where I had some business to handle, but would be a good spot for vacations or whatever. HB has really cleaned up over the years.

The hotel is right across the street from the ocean. The ocean has side walks to walk along and it is a quick, lovely walk to downtown Huntington Beach for shopping and restaurants. The gym is adequately furnished and the pool and hot tub are outside beneath beautiful palm trees. The rooms have a small refrigerator and balconyes to sit...
