I am so glad we chose this place for our wedding. You get so much for the price! I worked with Vanessa and I have nothing but good things to say, from the time we first toured the location to the days leading up to our wedding, we have received quality service. When we first toured the venue, there was a complimentary champagne waiting for us in our room, and honestly that's probably one of the reasons why we picked them! Right off the bat, they gave me the impression that they are organized and that is very important to me. We did not hire a wedding planner for our wedding, but it didn't seem like I needed one since Vanessa was very responsive and helpful the entire time. They took very good care of us. We really felt like a VIP at Hilton that weekend!Sent on 05/12/2018
The minute we parked our car for valet, we were immediately recognized by the staff. They knew us by name. They really made us feel special, like a legit VIP!
The place is beautiful! If you are one of those Instagrammers, this place has a lot of 'gram opportunities (they have nice interiors!). They have expanded the place and it had gotten so much better. I promise you won't be disappointed! I am so glad we picked this venue! I highly recommend this for a wedding, or for any event, due to their outstanding service. Every single one of their staff is so nice, helpful and very professional.

Our wedding was a dream! We decided to have our wedding at the Waterfront before the banquet hall was finished being built and I have to say that the end result was more than we could have ever imagined! We feel so lucky to have been one of the first weddings at this beautiful venue because it is going to be one of the top places to have a wedding in Orange County. So many of our friends and family inquired about the hotel after our wedding. Our banquet hall is a big space but didn’t give the feeling of being too big. I am super picky about details but I loved every part of the room. The chandeliers and mirrored walls give it a modern yet elegant touch. I didn’t need to drape the hall, I felt that the walls gave it character. Our cocktail hour was on the new, gorgeous lawn. Our guests enjoyed cocktails and hor d oeuvres beside a water fountain and of course a view of the ocean. It was breathtaking and perfect for pictures. We worked with Angie Florence, the Catering Manager at the hotel. Angie and her team were so on top of it! They were so helpful and attentive throughout the whole process, asking questions, responding to emails and doing everything possible to make sure the day ran smoothly. And it did. I couldn’t have asked for a better staff. The Hilton Waterfront was the perfect place for our wedding and I am so happy with our decision.Sent on 08/08/2018
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.
