Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

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...

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!...

All was very good as expected. Room, food, pool, restaurants, and staff. Shane the Bell/Valet guy went above and beyond to assist us with local eateries. The personalized service he provide my family was more than I would have expected.

I have to start by saying the Hilton is in the process is expanding. So yes there was construction going on during my stay. But honestly it never felt intrusive. The valet guys I think have bad because the construction has made the car entrance area on the small side. But I give them all credit...they always had a smile...

I have stayed here before and loved it. However, CONSTRUCTION Beware. I stayed in room 621 and sadly that was DIRECTLY in front of the construction area. I asked to be moved to no avail. as I arrived at the hotel at 5p and the otherside (not facing construction) of the hotel was sold out. It was noisy, dusty and...

We had a great time at the hotel and the beach. The hotel is in a great location. It is easy walking distance to the Huntington Beach pier. Main street HB is a cool place to visit. Excellent hotel... Excellent service!

The Hotel is nice and the hotel will be beautiful in late 2017 however; right now it is a "work in progress". PROS- Next to the Beach, next to the new shopping center Pacific City, walking distance to Main Street, friendly Front Desk, and rooms are updated. CONS- I would say half of the property is under construction, work begins...

We love this place, especailly the location. We knew about the ongoing construction next door and that was a complete non-issue for us.. However, we weren't aware of the remodeling going on directly above our room. Non-stop jackhammer noise for an entire day. Called to ask what was going on and received an apology. Would have expected a little more...

Excellent location, beautiful hotel, nice people. Everything you could want for a quick get-away. I would recommend this hotel to any couple or family that likes a resort atmosphere, but wants to be close to big city entertainment.
