Reviewed 17 June 2014

The Hotel was great - room spacious and clean and great ocean side view. Staff were marvelous - went out of there way to be helpful and make your stay comfortable. Also had shared access to Hyatt's facilities right next door which had nice shops and wonderful Spa. The Gallery HB at the Hyatt is a shop you don't want to miss Owner Peggy was wonderful and offered Great group fun with Ukulele lessons - fun shared family time. Great trip!

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times for business travel. Like most full service hotels, the price is high and the offerings are low. Pool is nice. The only parking option is valet but parking anywhere in HB is expensive. Quite a hike to downtown HB, but they do have an hourly shuttle. A major improvement is the coffee shop that opened up, before you couldn't get a decent cup of coffee before 7:00 am. Rooms are excellent, most have views of the ocean and/or pool. If you get close to the elevator, you won't have a view. Comfortable Hilton beds, lighted night stand which is a nice touch in the middle of the night.

Room Tip: Away from the elevator.

Talk about a room with a view! It was perfect. The furnishings were comfortable. The room was clean and very well kept. I was on the top floor overlooking Huntington Beach and PCH (toward Newport Beach). I enjoyed the full moon from my balcony, with fresh ocean breezes and the sound of waves breaking on the shore. My stay was a little slice of heaven.

A great place to stay right in the thick of things. I did expect the mattress to be on par with the rest of the room, it was a little bit of a let down. When we arrived they did not have anymore 2 Queen rooms that my wife had reserved, so after a couple of minutes we were upgraded to the Governor Suite. It was huge!! I would have thought it was a 3 bedroom apt. The room was excellent, views of the ocean off one balcony and the pool from the other balcony. The only downside was there were only 2 beds and a pull out. That much room and only sleep 3?? I question the logic on that one, but a great room regardless.

we've been here a couple of times and still like the waterfront resort. this time we had a king corner suite with two balconies and great seaview.
all the people working there are very attentive and super nice, the proximity to the beach can't be beaten.
having breakfast outside is great if you are not too picky about food quality. the choices are okay but the quality could be better.
the gym hasn't been remodeled for years, is very tiny, dark and not exactly great but it will do if you take part in a lot of other outdoor activities.
the pool area is well maintained and beautiful though sometimes a bit crowded and noisy.
the hotel offers a lot of activities for kids.

as a downside you should be aware that everything is very expensive. renting a bike or a beach chair is horrendously expensive, they even charge you for renting a kids beach playset. cost for valet parking is enormous but without a car you can't get far in and around hb.
that said we still recommend the waterfront resort when staying in hb.

We just stayed here for one week and had two rooms. Our room/suites were perfect...on the 9th floor with 2 balconies facing the ocean unobstructed. Literally a room with a view. The location was great from walking the strand, renting beach cruisers across the way, walking to Main Street, riding into Newport on our bikes and a short easy drive to Laguna. The staff was attentive, friendly and extremely eager to please. Room service was good as was picking up dinners from Shades Restaurant. Delicious salmon! Our 11 month old puppy joined us and it is very dog friendly and easy to take her out with doggie spots on grounds with bags. She had a great time, loves the beach and the Hilton is close to the famed doggie beach which is a must for an afternoon. Beautiful, fun and clean. I'm sure we will stay here again in the future with no hesitation. Be sure to get a room on higher floor directly facing West. It's worth it! Enjoy!
