First of all, let me say that every single employee that I interacted with was extremely friendly, professional, and dedicated to taking excellent care of the customer. That alone, is worth 5 stars to me! As others have said, you can't beat the location of this hotel. Be aware that there is some construction in the area, so it is...

I attended an event held at the Waterfront and couldn't have been more pleased with the overall aesthetics and level of customer service. This place is steps away from beach and feels like a high end luxury resort without the pretentiousness. I truly enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel to anybody in the area or coming from afar.

Location is excellent for a weekend get away. City of Huntington Beach has really improved their look and cleaned up the down town area and pier. Lots of fun local restaurant options. Always enjoy a great meal at Duke's.
