I have stayed at this property over 200 times as a business traveler during 2012 - 2013 and have never had even the slightest negative experience. From housekeeping to valet to front desk to management this property provides an EXCELLENT guest experience.

This hotel was clean but expensive. No self parking except across street where you have to feed a meter. Valet parking was $32 a day and then a tip is expected. Room was over $250 and no breakfast included. Stayed in 909 and view of coast was very nice except we were overlooking a huge wedding tent and watched crew set up that started a little too early. Was too early to listen to set up workers rolling tables and talking. The room was on the side of the hotel but view of ocean was nice.

Room was clean and spacious. Bed very comfortable. We did have to call house keeping up to change the sheets as there were yellow stains in middle of bed. I don't think it was human.

The property itself was nice. There is a Whole foods, Target, Wallmart and some great restaurants in short driving distance.

Room Tip: Restaurants and pier nearby. Coffee shops about a 10 minute walk to main street.

I've been staying here on business 1-2 time per year for the last 4 years. As I have been staying on business though, I can't really accurately comment on the extra amenities that the hotel offers. I will however, give some positives and negatives based on what I use at the hotel.

Positives:
-Proximity to the beach. It's right across the street!
-Pool. It's a nice pool and I've never seen it overly busy.
-Rooms. I usually stay in the standard double bed room. No complaints here. It is what it is. Try to get a room with an ocean view. It's a great thing to wake up to.
-Staff are very friendly.

Negatives:
-Proximity to Main st. I don't mind the walk (it's very nice to walk along the beach) but for young children or seniors it's quite a way to get to Main street or the Huntington Beach Pier.
-Fitness Centre. It's very small (1 bike, 2 ellipticals, 2 treadmills, & free weights).
-Bar has last call at 11pm.\
-Restaurant. I'd expect it to be a bit better for the price you pay for the hotel and the price of the food.

As I said above, I stay here for business and it gets the job done. If you're looking for something a little more lively and closer to Main street I'd recommend the Shorebreak.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ocean view

The hotel is located on the beach and the pool is beautiful. The hotel provides a shuttle to and from the shops at Huntington Beach, which is so nice! Also, they provide beach equipment for your stay. This is great if you have kids...a major big plus!

The views were priceless, the staff was helpful but there were stains in the carpet in my room and the bathroom was not cleaned. I travel a lot and I could not get a good night rest in the bed...not what I am used to but that could be personal preference. Finally, I could hear EVERYTHING going on in the room next door. Overall, average experience but the view made it all worth it.

We stayed here about a month ago, visiting a friend. We have stayed in many Hilton's so we didn't realize how outdated this one was. The hotel itself was fantastic. The staff was nice & helpful, the great room was spacious and high end. The pool was large and opened up to the bar.
But the rooms we were highly disappointed. We are Hilton Honors Members and were upgraded to an ocean view room. You could tell that they tried to update it, but it was a sad attempt.
Some comfortable furniture outside would have been helpful. A lamp that worked would have been helpful. Free wi-fi would have been convenient since we were on the road for almost 3 weeks and needed to pay bills.

The one thing we did appreciate was we were allowed to bring our mountain bikes up to the room., and the parking lot was monitored. Simple bike ride to the pier as well, which was nice.

Not sure I would stay here again.

we enjoyed the hotel. lovely views, nice beds, very quiet. LOTS of weddings! much smaller than the Hyatt next door. pool area was maintained well (but full of kids). restaurants were good (the deli and shades). overall, for the much lower price than the hyatt - this is a great location. We walked to main street for meals (Dukes and Cucchina Alleso). Walked on the beach. Great weekend at the beach. Had some issues with a baby next door the first night (ok, 5:30 am but still).

Room Tip: use the spa at Hyatt. Ask for an ocean view on a high level room (8 or up)
