Hotel was clean and good value for the view. Loved the in-room dining and pool services. Right across the street from the beach and they offer beach cabana and butler service that was great. Wish they could service alcohol on the beach.

Due to a remodel an add on to the hotel we could not use gym facilities. Additionally due to moving of the wedding to the pool area, we were restricted from for use on a Saturday 5:00-7:00 Kind of a bummer.

Dear E5703MVkarls,

Thank you for your recent review. We apologize for any inconvenience during your stay. We are about to open a brand new 3000 sq. ft. fitness facilities. In the meantime, we have arranged for complimentary access to our adjacent hotel's gym facilities. We will be announcing on all of our social media channels (including Tripadvisor) the phased opening of the Twin Dolphin Tower and event space... be on the lookout!

Sincerely,

Scott O'Hanlon

Service is outstanding. The pool guys and bartender and are incredibly attentive, offer restaurant and things to do suggestions and were spot on each time. Room wasn't ready at 2p which was a little frustrating, but we went across the street to the beach and it was ready by 4:30. There's no good place to change into swimming suits etc, just something to keep in mind. The hotel is across the street from the beach, and it's a busy street. If you have kids, you aren't going to want them running from the beach to the pool by themselves. The property is beautiful and well maintained.

Dear jenadove,

Thank you for the lovely review. We are very close to opening our expansion and new pool and waterslides which will feature a separate men's and women's changing area with showers and lockers. This can be used prior to or after either the pool or the beach!

We apologize for the delay getting into your room earlier than our published check-in time of 4pm. We often can meet this request with ease, but in this instance we could not due to an inordinate number of late departures. We'll certainly try to do better for you next time. Just let us know prior to your arrival you'd like an "early check-in" and we'll do all we can to expedite that service.

Sincerely,

Scott O'Hanlon

Stayed for one night on the 8th Sept. Had to do pre check in at 3.30pm as our room was not ready. Allocated 416 facing the pool. However at 4.45pm on the room being ready, there was an awful stench of dogs as soon as you entered. We went straight back to reception and was allocated room 1219 and informed it had an ocean view. The receptionist omitted to tell us it was facing a construction site and we were woken at 6.40am by noise. The gentleman was very helpful who brought our bags up that evening and it was only on asking him for restaurant suggestions we found out about the shuttle bus. I would have thought the receptionist would have told us. The blue cushions outside on the chairs were badly stained, whilst we were waiting for the shuttle bus, so you really didn't want to sit on them. I tried to find the laundry only to find out it is currently not in use. We has received a welcoming email from the hotel three days prior, but only stated the gym was out of use. Breakfast was very good. The concierge Rafal who assisted us on check out without asking was very helpful. We were knocked of 50 dollars for our room at check out, however I had particularly booked a sunset view room, and when booking with Hilton Worldwide they had contacted the property whilst on the phone to check this for me. So I left feeling very disappointed as it is not likely I will visit Huntington Beach again due to living in the UK. I had booked this hotel 6 months ago and expected a room that didn't stink of dogs or listening to construction noise.

I travel a ton for work. As a 9 year diamond member it takes a lot to impress me. The Waterfront Beach Resort Hilton did it! Upgraded to a beautiful oceanfront room. Sunsets were stunning. Breakfast overlooking the pool and ocean was delicious. The hotel concierge offers pre-booking activities. I highly recommend it. Venessa was unbelievably helpful. The beach front bonfire is a must! Fun and they take care of everything. Cabana rentals. I prefer the pool over the beach. Poolside has cocktail service, lunch and restrooms. The beach doesn't allow liquor (city ordinance). The hotel is nearing completion of a new wing. The lobby looks amazing. The common areas and rooms are beautiful. While you do occasionally hear the construction, it by no means was intrusive. Every single employee we encountered was amazing. They truly want you to enjoy your stay. Housing keeping always spoke as we walked by. They go above a beyond to ensure your stay is memorable. Nancy, our server at the cabana was great fun. I highly recommend this Hilton. I will definitely return to see the new additions.
