Beautiful hotel right across the street from the beach. Hotel was well kept, staff was very polite and helpful. Didn't get a chance to use the rooftop bar, but it looked as though it would have had a fantastic view. Restaurant food was good, forget about drinking there though. Drinks are small and expensive. Pool and beach amenities very good also. Only two drawbacks: the Valet Only parking charge, and the frequent odor of marijuana in and around the Hotel. Seemed to be like that all around Huntington beach. Not sure what the hotel could do about it but it was certainly unpleasant.

Very nice hotel!

We enjoyed our stay at the waterfront hotel. The beach is a short walk across the street. Hotel and room very clean. We requested a crib be brought to our room twice and never received a crib. The food and drinks in bar and restaurant is mediocure and over priced and service is very slow. The room it’s self was a very basic room for as expensive as hotel was but very clean and beds comfortable. We would stay again but would not eat at the restaurant again. We enjoyed the beautiful pool.

Great location snd nice hotel. Staff was great too. Second pool was still under construction and with second newly built tower they really needed the extra pool. $36 a night for valet was a little steep. All in all a great vacation though!

Only stay here if you don't want to sleep

The hotel staff was very nice, however my bathroom was dirty, the old kind of dirt from being neglected and never properly cleaned. Not to mention the streaks of hair smeared all over. At least the sheets seemed clean. Unfortunately this hotel is very loud. There were people screaming in a nearby room and I could hear every conversation and door opening or closing in the vicinity. I ended up checking out a day early because it was impossible to sleep there.
