HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 February 2017 via mobile

The location of this hotel is amazing with beautiful ocean views even from my room (see picture) which was listed as "partial view." Easy walking access to a brand-new, high-end outdoor shopping mall with lots of food options. Walk just a bit more and you are at the pier, and Main Street with a ton more shopping and eating options!...

My girlfriend and I had a nice visit to Huntington Beach. I'm a diamond member and I've been to more Hilton properties than I can remember. We booked an oceanfront suite and the room was very spacious. The bathroom was very dated and the room was a bit musty, nothing terrible, but I expected a little better. There is a...

I used some Hilton Honors points to come here with my family. I didn't have to use a lot of points so I was a little concerned about the "resort" aspect of the hotel. While it does not fall into the category of a "resort" like some of the other places I have been, this hotel turned put to be...

Dirty room, balcony was too dirty to use. Baby food left in mini fridge. If your not cleaning the easy things.....the service was good. The people that worked there were nice. The place is going through a MAJOR construction project. I would advise against staying here until it is complete.

This was our 3rd visit to the Waterfront. Each visit was as consistent as the others. I am a Hilton Diamond Member and have stayed at many Hilton properties over the years. Without a doubt, hands down, this is the best Hilton property we have ever encountered! The staff is the friendliest, service is terrific, housekeeping does a great job...

I genuinely dislike leaving anything lower than a 4 star review for hotels, but we were completely underwhelmed by this hotel and I wish I had more info before booking. The biggest downfall was the construction. We could barely hear anything when we walked into the lobby, a huge portion was taped up and we were dodging workers and painters...

I enjoyed a beach facing deluxe room that was perfect. The 2 balconies facing the water with sunsets to die for. We ate at the restaurant or room service which was very tasty and used the valet parking. Hilton takes care of all the details but you have to take care of the bill.

Spent the weekend at the beach and chose this hotel for its central location to the beach, pier, and Pacific City. Everything was wonderful except for the construction, which included the gym. However, passes were available to the gym next door at Pasea. Room size was standard and the bed was comfortable, but I found the pillows to be a...
