My wife, 15 month old son, and myself stayed here during early March. The only complaint I have is there's no self parking and as you would assume, they gouge you with the valet costs, but you have no choice. Everything else about this hotel is great. All employees were very friendly and accommodating, and we were upgraded to an...

We stay at the Huntington Beach Waterfront Hilton Resort at least three times per year. Every stay is as memorable as the previous one...the service, friendliness of staff, food, rooms are AMAZING! We love this property and would not stay anywhere else in Orange County!

My family stayed here on our first vacation to California. It was nice to be so close to the ocean. The pool was great too. My kids loved it. They charged extra for parking and made you use valet which made it difficult if you forget something in your car. They charged extra for a roll away too. And there...

A very nice hotel. We really enjoyed our weekend stay. The bed was very comfortable. Even that our windows were facing the pool we didn't hear anything. Super quiet. We had great nights of sleep. The lobby decor is a bit dated. Location is perfect. walking distance from pier and restaurants. All our rooms had a cute balcony. My only...

We were invited to the Taste Event by some friends we meet on a cruise. The event was unreal. Would highly recommend. We stayed at the Hilton. We knew some construction was going on next door but was never an issue. Because of the construction the wedding venue was a little strange but also not a big deal. The valet...

Great Location. The hotel is well kept. I didn't have a chance to use the pool, but it looked nice. The only negative was the view of the construction site outside my window. I would highly recommend this hotel to others.

A beautiful setting, decor fabulous, excellent restraint, great pool with poolside service. Not a far walk to downtown, Huntington Beach has really grown in the last few years, a fun Beach town for sure. Biggest con would be the very limited parking, especially during surf week, hope the address that, though where any more people would go I have no...

This hotel is one of our favorite hotels in So Cal, looks out at the Pacific Ocean and is only blocks away from Main Street Huntington Beach with plenty of restaurants and shopping. Also great Sunday brunch inside and outside overlooking the ocean.
