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.

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.

excellent location and friendly service

Great location and extremely courteous staff. Did not care for mandatory valet parking, but vehicle was always cared for and brought to us almost immediately. No long wait. Restaurant was very nice both casual yet classy. Rooms were very clean and all had a beach view. Some rooms had better view of the beach than others, but all had some view. Easy walking distance to the beach, the pier, and all of the local shops, restaurants and pubs. Less than an hour drive from Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and Hollywood. Traffic in and around was always reasonable and never congested. Highly recommend this location for either a romantic getaway, or a family vacation.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If going to Disneyland, make sure you arrive as early in the day as possible. Finding parking during the busy part of the day will take up a major part of your time that could be better spent enjoying the attractions and shopping

Outstanding Hotel

This was an outstanding hotel and a great value for the money. Right across PCH from beach, courteous staff and helpful staff. Close to good restaurants, (Joe's Crab Shack 4 miles down PCH), big fluffy towels in bathroom with all the other ameneties provided. Great food and a terrific view from room balcony of beach and shoreline.

Didn't want to go home...

My husband and I are from Huntington Beach but moved away 2 years ago. We decided to make a trip back there for a fun weekend and LOVED our experience at the Waterfront Hilton. We brought our 2 year old with us and she had a blast. The pool isn't the biggest or best we have seen but it was quiet, they had great toys for her to play with, and they had clean/comfortable chairs/towels with an amazing view and location. We can't wait to go back!
