Pretty good place to stay.

Nice hotel with just about everything you need. Wish it was a little closer to Main Street. Wish it had more restaurant and bar options. Otherwise a great place for a family or adults to stay in Huntington Beach.

Great place to stay if you don't need wi-fi

The hotel was very nice and clean. Staff was awesome and helpful. Let us use their personal Iphone charger since our car charger broke.. Only down side is there for the price of the room, they should have free wi-fi!!!! So disappointing that a chain like Hilton would not have this amenity.

Honeymoon Heaven

Very Positive. The staff was overall excellent. The only bummer was that the only parking available is valet, which is expensive...but overall it was a great stay.

Good times

The Hilton was a great hotel to stay at. Beautiful pool, nice rooms with a view, and very friendly staff. The only issue I have is that for a 4 star hotel there is not a fan in the bathroom. Otherwise, nice and relaxing.

Fun even for a local

My husband and I had a great time even though we live in CDM. Just to get away from the kids, we ate at Dukes, dessert at Zimzala near the pier. The views are great and I enjoyed this as much as the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

I read they have a bus that will take you to the pier if you don't want to walk.

EXPENSIVE, NOT WORTH IT, CONGESTED

X-mas buffet was $75 per person. Huntington Beach itself stunk of burning garbage or some kind of burning. Both my husband and I had a low-grade headache the whole time there. VERY EXPENSIVE food and drinks with high added gratuity. I don't mind paying if it is worth it but this place is not. In addition, it is intensely crowded with nowhere to park. Skip it, it's a nuisance and a headache to get around.

Beach Magic

I had a four night stay at this hotel to spend some time at the beach and to meet a new male acquantance who lives in the LA area. The hotel was VERY nice. Everything about the room was posh and I even had a nice view of the ocean, despite the fact I paid for a garden view room. The beach is beautiful and right across the street. I walked in the surf and watched the dolphins play right off the beach. It was magical. The hotel is right up the street a couple of blocks from the main street area and the pier. It was very convenient. It's also quite close to Disneyland and other attractions, although I didn't ever quite make it there this trip. Everything about the trip was great....now if the guy thing would just work out. It had it's great moments, but we'll see.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

I had a very nice dinner at Dukes with my male friend. It was a little noisy, but the food was wonderful. I also enjoyed the Mexican restaurant on the main street for a casual meal and Ruby's burgers on the pier for an inexpensive but fun meal. Oh yeah...a tip on breakfast at the hotel restaurant, Shades....order off the kids menu. It's still more food than most adults need and a very nice breakfast. They didn't seem to mind.
