Beautiful Location, High Quality Food, Amazing Coordinator
After canvassing a multitude of beachfront wedding locations from Malibu to Laguna Beach, my wife and I meticulously decided on the Waterfront Beach Resort based on price, view, and the catering coordinator. We could not have made a better choice. The Waterfront had an amazing view of the Pacific which gets even better at sunset. Angie Florence, the catering manager, was extremely professional. During wedding planning, we've exchanged hundreds of emails and Angie was always there to assist. Angie was highly knowledgeable about the wedding industry. In addition, she was flexible and very easy to work with. Not only was Angie organized with dates and payments, she also contributed numerous unique ideas that were invaluable to our wedding experience. Aside from the beautiful location of the Waterfront Beach Resort, Angie and her team really made the wedding planning period less stressful and our wedding day memorable. The high quality food and service was also amazing. They provided a large selection of items to choose from as well as including wine experts for pairing. Our guests loved the hors d'oeuvres and entrees. The pricing was reasonable and we definitely recommend the Waterfront as a prime wedding location.Sent on 01/31/2020

Waterfront Weddings-Yes yes yes!
The Waterfront Hilton Resort was beyond what we could have imagined! From start to finish, they handled it all! We had to postpone our wedding due to COVID-19, and the Waterfront Wedding team, especially Angie Florence, made sure our day was incredible...and did it all in TWO WEEKS!! They went above and beyond to ensure our intimate micro wedding was a success and special. We felt valued and heard throughout our two week planning process. Angie and her team made sure our wedding ran smoothly and handled everything! We cannot recommend them enough!Sent on 05/24/2020

My fiance and I considered about three dozen different wedding venues and the Waterfront Hilton was the one we ultimately ended up choosing after much trial and error. For over a year Angie responded to our many many emails, answering all of our questions and working to ensure everything went well on our big day. Of all the hotels I toured the Waterfront was the clear choice. For a hotel wedding venue, they were incredibly accommodating and super flexible with our requests. The ceremony space was beautiful, and we loved the convenience of having the ceremony, cocktail, and reception space all in one area while still allowing our guests to have the freedom to roam around and spread out. Everything the day of was flawless, from the bridal suite (that view though), to the multiple photo locations, and of course the wedding itself. Tina our banquet captain did an amazing job checking in with us during the dinner service, and Julie was by far everyones favorite bartender (shout out to Julie!). The food was head and shoulders above the typical wedding food (I still dream of their coconut shrimp). Overall, we couldn't be happier with the venue and are so grateful to Angie and everyone else at the venue that worked tirelessly to ensure we had everything wanted on our big day.Sent on 04/16/2020
The Waterfront Beach Resort, A Hilton Hotel Price Rates
Beautiful Venue and great service. I have a wedding booked for April. I am looking forward to spending the day among great professionals. And, a beautiful Bride and Groom.
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing the staff at the Hilton Waterfront is. Always carrying themselves with the utmost professionalism, Emily, Kathy and Vanessa not only handle weddings and events with ease, but with both a caring and personable demeanor. Our team loves working events at this beautiful hotel, and their staff is a huge reason for it. You can absolutely expect timely responses, attention to even the tiniest of details and a commitment to making your event flow perfectly when working with Emily, Kathy and Vanessa.
The Waterfront Hilton is such a fantastic venue! Kathy, Vanessa, and Emily in the Catering Department, along with the Bell Desk staff, and Banquet staff are an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend the Waterfront Hilton to those newly engaged couples looking for a beautiful beach wedding venue.
