Great property by the beach, overall great location and clean rooms. Beware dining at restaurants there will automatically add $4 to your bill so either tip less or ask the front desk to remove it on checkout. Only other bad experiences was on checkout, a young woman with long blonde hair was very snotty and seemed like she didn't want to help. She removed the $4 after I complained but never thanked us for staying at the Hilton even as a Diamond member. Her ID was listed as LKERZIE on the bill. She should not be customer facing.

Hotel's Favourite
Thank you Hilton for awesome memories of our 29th. The beachfront upgrade was unexpected and much appreciated. Loyalty does payoff. We did have trouble with the bill and continue stay, as our 1st night was a loyalty bonus. However, Sean who pleasantly checked us in was there to fix things at checkout as well. Hayley, Rodolfo and Travis went above and beyond to make us feel special at breakfast. Best too eat breakfast between 7 and 9am as there was a 50 minute wait at busy time. Lots of COVID spaced tables, not enough staff. That's why Hayley, Rodolfo, and Travis are so special, they work hard. Huntington beach area is beautiful and clean. We never used valet once we checked in our car. We brought our bicycles to get around and walked. Thank you Waterfront Hilton. We have great memories.

This was our second stay at the hotel, it was apparent this time around the hotel has made some major changes to staff and leadership, for the worse. The location is great, the amenities are ok. We did not feel appreciated by staff. Even as a Hilton Honors Diamond member we did not feel appreciated. You are forced to valet. Everywhere you buy anything, even the gift shop, you are presented with a receipt basically asking for a tip. My impression is that staff is under paid, and guests are overcharged. For the size of the rooms, and the quality of the beds, the resort charge, forced valet, I think you can find something better in Huntington Beach. Our first visit to the hotel was much better. We don’t plan to return to this hotel unfortunately due to this last visit.

I came from out of town for a work trip with another coworker of mine and we both didn’t want to drive home (4hours because traffic) and we made the decision to stay. We had such a WONDERFUL time everyone was so kind and sweet and very helpful I couldn’t have asked for such a better time 🖤

This was our most recent visit of many stays. One word describes the Waterfront...CONSISTENCY! The property is always well maintained, the food is terrific and staff is the best in the entire Hilton chain. We are Hilton Diamond members and have stayed at many Hilton properties. You will not find a better hotel anywhere. They are across the street from the Pacific Ocean and a great beach. You have all the ingredients for a wonderful relaxing vacation.
