The staff was extremely knowledgeable about the process and what it takes to create the atmosphere we envisioned. We interviewed many venues and the Waterfront Hilton in Huntington Beach was the most superior in service, location, cost, and flexibility.Sent on 09/17/2019

Dream wedding experience!
There are so many wonderful things to say about the Waterfront that I have a hard time knowing where to begin. We had our wedding at the Waterfront Hilton on their Vista Lawn with the Coastal Ballroom. From my first inquiry to the actual wedding, the Waterfront continued to provide stellar service that exemplified their professionalism and experience in weddings. I compared them to other venues and what you get for the price is no comparison. My dad was in contact with them as well throughout the process and was so impressed with it all that he thanked them during his Father of the Bride speech.Sent on 09/10/2019
As for the actual planning and communication, our point person was Angie Florence. She expertly handled questions/emails from myself, my mom, and my dad, keeping us all informed in perfect coordination with our wedding coordinator. I felt 100% confident going into the wedding day that she and the Waterfront would deliver. And boy did they!!!!!
The Waterfront is perfectly located on PCH in Huntington Beach where guests could enjoy the beach and the nearby restaurants and bars. The Vista lawn was STUNNING for the ceremony! I couldn’t have envisioned a more romantic, beautiful setting to have my dream wedding. All of the guests raved about the ceremony, the cocktail hour that faced the ocean, and the Coastal ballroom that fit 150 perfectly. If you are looking to actually enjoy the food at a wedding, the Waterfront is probably the only venue you should consider. As an Italian bride who had been to dozens of weddings before my own, I honestly set my expectations low. I told myself that no one enjoys wedding food so that I wouldn’t be disappointed. Fast forward to our buffet and we had guests coming up to our families to specifically tell them that the food was amazing. Even my chef-aunt, an educated critique, told me she was impressed with the food. They made me an entire fresh plate of ravioli after photos!!!
The Waterfront does absolutely whatever they can to make the couple and their families happy. They go over and above to make sure they have everything exactly how you want it, and most importantly they are so nice about it! If you want a perfect beach wedding on all levels, book it!!
THANK YOU Angie and the rest of the Waterfront staff for a magical wedding that was as organized as it was beautiful. You guys are the best!

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.
