A typical resort hotel that also attracts conference and wedding business as well. Currently in the process of undertaking major expansion and upgrade plans which look great on the plans so should up the ante quite a bit in the Huntington Beach area. Nicly appointed ad spacious bedrooms although wifi quite flaky in-room so you might have to go own...

We spent our spring break at The Waterfront and had a great trip. The proximity to the beach and downtown cannot be beat. Every hotel staff member we encountered was over the top friendly from the valet to Rich from engineering. We were on the top floor (12th) and had a view straight down the beach. We could watch surfers...

From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do enough for us on every front.

The GM Paulette was amazing and personally introduced herself to us at lunch only minutes after we arrived. Every meal...

Although the location is ideal, the service was disappointing for the price. The hotel restaurant, Shades, was mediocre at best with average service and disappointing offerings. The salmon was dry and the side dishes were tasteless. General hotel service was fine, but it didn't exceed anything that I've experienced at a 3-star hotel.

Stayed here a few years ago, and had a great stay. This time was a quick trip and we were gone most of the day so I can't comment on the restaurant or other amenities. Although they are adding on to the property, we did not notice any excess noise from the construction. Our room had an awesome view (7th...

Close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Enjoyed all aspects of the hotels restaurant, surf hero market, bar, pool and hot tub. Staff at check in was great. Bell staff was great. Bartender was great. My only regret was i wish i got their names! Will stay here again. Very clean. Loved the view.

Everything about this hotel was excellent from the cleanliness and care of the facility to the staff. We enjoyed the fact that it is pet friendly and your pet is treated like a person. It was located just close enough to the main street, but also just far enough away

Nothing major to complain about, it's convenient, staff are friendly, clean enough, amazing location a walking distance from the beach and from Main Street, there is a Starbucks nearby and a good number of restaurants walking distance. At the time of our visit, there is some construction work going on, which is slightly annoying, even though you can tell they...

Hello Rawan M., Thank you for your kind review. We apologize for the construction now underway, but I can assure you...upon your return you won't recognize the place! With an all new suites-centric tower, pools with waterslides and outdoor bars, new restaurants...about the only thing you'll recognize is the ocean out your window. That'll be right where you left it....
