“Beautiful beachfront hotel that allows dogs up to 75 pounds.”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

We had read previous reviews about Hilton or the Hyatt here in huntington beach, and Hilton won. The people here are so accommodating and just plain nice. The view from our room was awesome. Make sure you try to get a room 10 or above for the best views. The best part you can bring your dog, they even have dog walkers and sitters!

We just got back and all I can say is, "wow"!! We had purchased a package @ a silent auction . It was a two night stay in the presidential suite plus a joining room.

The service was a 10!!!! We had such an amazing stay cation !!! S'mores on the beach dinner @ their restaurant by the pool, pool cabana and Dukes Dinner, and a Fab beach day.

They have everything for you. Beach toys, bikes, beach towels, beach chairs. They even allow dogs to stay!!!

We will for sure go back!!!!

My family came to the hotel for a weekend getaway. Nice rooms but very small pool area and not enought space to sit and relax..
People are putting towels by chairs very early
Across the street from the beach.

I was looking for a quick beach getaway where I could be a little pampered and totally relax, and found it in the Waterfront Beach Resort. I called the concierge on the way down and he arranged an afternoon at the spa on Main Street, and even drove me himself. The service was exceptional from everyone I came into contact with. The room was beautiful with a sunset view of the ocean and super comfy beds. Staff was great about making arrangements for whatever I needed - bike rental, extra towels, ride to downtown, etc...the restaurant was even yummy! Parking the car was pricey, but then didn't need it the whole time. It really was such an enjoyable few days! The last minute price was pretty high, but would have been lower had I booked more in advance. Traveled alone and was totally comfortable there!

Although there had been mixed reviews on this hotel we could not find a fault. It's location across from gorgeous Huntington beach was excellent. We would stay a gain for sure. Very friendly waitress night we arrived despite being late and almost at closing for kitchen she sorted out something for us to eat and made us feel very welcome. She should be on reception as the girl that evening was not overly friendly.

Granted it took me 16 years to review it, the place is pretty cool.

HB is pretty easy to like so a 5 star hotel in top surf spot is even easier to judge.

The best place to actually enjoy the city is not by staying in it but if you are getting married somewhere by the ocean, I suggest this one...

Room Tip: Ocean view, man... Ocean view.

Everything at this hotel is excellent: staff, rooms, location, amenities, activities, food, and anything else you can imagine! If you're looking to stay in Huntington Beach and want a resort, DO NOT hesitate and reserve at the Waterfront Beach Resort. This is seriously one of the best Hilton I've stayed in, comparable to the Hilton Bentley in South Beach. I have no negative comment to say about the hotel, maybe the $45 lunch for 2 sandwiches and 1 grilled-cheese, but hey... you are in a Hilton facing the Pacific Ocean! They have activities all week at the pool to entertain adults and kids (DJ, band, hairbrush, caricatures, etc.), plus they provide you with beach chairs and beach toys for your children. What else can you ask for??? Nothing...
