Editor’s Review of The Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel

Overlooking Huntington Beach's 8.5 miles of wide, soft sand and oceanfront, is the Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel. The 12-story resort features 290 oceanview guestrooms and suites, an elevated pool deck with ocean views, award-winning dining, and tons for families to enjoy while visiting Orange County.

In 2014, the resort completed a full renovation of all rooms, and accommodations now feature a Southern California theme.

With its ideal beachfront location and short distance to Disneyland Resort, the Waterfront Beach Resort and its array of amenities make it a great destination resort for families.
