Kimpton Shorebreak Huntington Beach

Huntington Beach, California

Virgin rating

The hotel

Undoubtedly hip, the Kimpton Shorebreak Huntington Beach perfectly captures the sun-drenched spirit of California, complete with surf-inspired décor that complements this enviable beachfront location. Although relaxed, service is of the highest standard, and guest rooms boast plenty of home-from-home amenities (including your own record player!) as well as a balcony from which to admire ocean or city views. The Pacific Hideaway Restaurant and Bar may offer a casual vibe, but it’s serious on food! Very popular with locals and guests alike, authentic coastal cuisine will delight, as will handcrafted cocktails sure to get you in that Californian mood. The ‘living room’ lounge is a great place to relax awhile before dinner, swapping tales of the day’s beach adventures. Alternatively, as the sun sets, head to the Deck, a private courtyard for guests use only with multiple fire pits to keep you snug! There's activities galore, with Sunday yoga classes, a range of beach amenities on-hand, and a daily social hour, and guests can also head to the state-of-the-art fitness centre, open 24-hours.

I had the chance to stay at this hotel in March 2024 and recently in May 2024. My first visit was okay overall, but what made the visit enjoyable & made my decision to return was the staff! Destini, Jackie, Spencer, Logan, Preston, Vanessa, Omar, Frederick, and Adrianna were awesome! I can’t wait to visit again sometime in the late Summer months!

We stayed at the Kimpton Shorebreak for our annual retreat this year and it was amazing! The hotel was beautiful and we had a great view but really this review was for the staff! They went so far beyond it was incredible! The staff took care of every need before we even asked. Christa, the Catering & Conference Service Manager, was the most attentive manager at any conference we've ever had. She was willing to help out in anyway and she made you feel like a friend as she was looking after us. Thank you Christa! The food and food staff were also flawless! I was so beyond impressed with all 4 days we stayed with them! Thank you to everyone that helped out last week! We will be back soon, I am sure of it!! Read less

Beautiful facility, great location with friendly staff, BUT…… If you require internet perhaps stay away until they get it sorted out. Checked in with the desk three times for an update, no improvement as of yet. Book two rooms. Oceanfront for ourselves, regular room for the kids. If you like sleep, save your money and book a regular room. Facing the ocean comes with being almost overtop of a four lane racetrack between the hotel and beach. Very very loud. If I was in a quite room and had internet for $400 a night I could give this place a 5/5 unfortunately that is not the case this week. Read less

What a cool vibe and excellent staff! Room is decorated in modern surf with funky accents. Danny and Kris were amazing and our 4th floor oceanfront room with huge corner balcony was incredible, S’more’s in the evening around the fire pits topped off perfect days walking the beach and spending time with friends. We will be back!!!
