We have visited TWR many times over the years. I am a Hilton Diamond member so I've stayed at many Hilton properties. Hands down this hotel is the finest Hilton property I have ever stayed in. We felt very safe last weekend an everyone in the hotel wore masks and kept their distance. Our room was terrific. The restaurant staff was excellent and the food terrific for breakfast! We watched as they thoroughly cleaned each table after a guest would leave. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and we were presented with a terrific room upgrade. The property is very well maintained and always clean. Kim and Vanessa in Guest services helped with some birthday planning and were wonderful to meet and thank in person for their help. WE look forward to our next visit sometime in 2021. Read less

My stay Friday at the Hilton was great. Even though the hotel has been across from the beach for a long time, everything in it looks brand new. Every place you look you see beautiful seating areas with lots of sofas and chairs. The furniture and art are very impressive and everything is spotless. My room on the 8th floor had a large balcony overlooking one of the pool areas and the ocean. Best place to relax. They have every amenity. if you get out of bed in the dark a motion light under the bed turns on pointing your way, that is something I have never seen. The staff that I was in contact with was fantastic and couldn't be more helpful - Ms Fisher, Corwin, Kyle, and Kimmie. On the rooftop they have a lounge bar with sofas and chairs and little fire pits for atmosphere and you can watch the ocean from there. I would definitely stay again. Read less

I just loved this stay at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They had all the proper cleaning protocols in place. We were upgraded to a nicer room. We had a fantastic ocean view. The larger pool was a little cold but the smaller pool was perfect. The poolside service was awesome!!! We also reserved a fire pit and they upgraded us to a cabana since it was windy that night so we just had an amazing time. We also had s'more around the fire pit and that was awesome!! Considering we live only 20 minutes from the beach I was not expecting to have such a great time but we just loved this hotel and the time we were there. The rooms were also amazing and exceeded what I was expecting. Read less

This property is amazing. Directly across from Huntington Beach, the location is perfect; less than a block walk to Pacific City (shops & restaurants) and about a block from the pier! We ate breakfast onsite every morning and the food and service was excellent. Got upgraded due to diamond status and view from room was awesome. Main pool was busy due to the pool slides (I’m guessing) and family with kids, but if you are worried, there is a side pool that was empty almost the entire time of our stay. I loved our stay here and front desk staff were friendly and helpful. You do pay for valet/parking if you have a car. The hotel has a rooftop that I highly recommend for drinks and appetizers. Nice ambiance and view. Read less
