I honestly can't write enough good things about Kathy and the Hilton.

Kathy helped us plan the most perfect wedding. From the beginning she made herself available to us at any moment. She even informed us of the Hilton Rewards program that would help us get free rooms for our honeymoon. sent the guys a welcome tray of beers and snacks and the girls wine with cheese and fruit. The morning of the wedding she sent by an emergency cart with towels, robes, make-up mirrors, and anything else we might need.

Our package included our wedding cake that gave us a choice of multiple bakeries and allowed us to have an amazingly beautiful and delicious cake. They also provided us with a day of coordinator that helped us plan our wedding to the very last detail, most of which were things we would have never thought of. Our night ended in a complementary suite that allowed us a clean and private room for our wedding night, away from our bridal party.

The day before the wedding, we found out a rodeo was going to be held directly across from the Hilton. Kathy assured me she would do whatever she could to ensure the rodeo did not conflict with our wedding. Kathy suggested pushing things back, opening the bar early and providing hors d'oeuvres for our guests.

Everything from that moment was flawless. Kathy drove us down to the ceremony site so girls wouldn't have to walk in their heels. After the ceremony, she drove us across the street to the beach for pictures, and even helped me with my shoes since I couldn't reach them with my wedding dress.

The reception was absolutely gorgeous and we've received nothing but the best compliments on our wedding. Afterwards we moved into the West Coast Room where Kathy helped us plan an after party and arranged for a food truck to serve our guests late night. Although our bar had to close by 1am, they let us stay in the room as long as we wanted.

Kathy assured me she would do whatever she could to ensure the rodeo did not conflict with our wedding. Kathy suggested pushing things back, opening the bar early and providing hors d'oeuvres for our guests.

Everything from that moment was flawless. Kathy drove us down to the ceremony site so girls wouldn't have to walk in their heels. After the ceremony, she drove us across the street to the beach for pictures, and even helped me with my shoes since I couldn't reach them with my wedding dress.

The reception was absolutely gorgeous and we've received nothing but the best compliments on our wedding. Afterwards we moved into the West Coast Room where Kathy helped us plan an after party and arranged for a food truck to serve our guests late night. Although our bar had to close by 1am, they let us stay in the room as long as we wanted. Read less

Bridget at the Waterfront Hilton was extremely helpful with all our catering needs for our wedding reception. She met with us several times before the big day, for dinner tastings, help with linens, etc. She was always gracious and happy to help in any way needed. On the wedding day, the Waterfront Hilton staff did an amazing job at everything. Our complimentary oceanfront suite was amazing, the hors d'ouvres were delicious (especially the grilled cheese sandwiches that Bridget recommended), the dinner was delicious! The guests commented that the beautiful Pacific Ballroom with ocean view was gorgeous. We were so happy we chose the Waterfront Hilton as our reception venue, and thankful to all the staff that made it such a special day!! We highly recommend this venue as an outstanding place for any kind of special party!!

If you are searching for a beachy, SoCal venue, but are being frustrated by public beach laws and unforeseen logistics, look no further than the Waterfront Resort. The hotel itself is pleasantly updated, but retains its beach chic cred. The staff is the friendliest we had encountered, and the venue itself is something out of a dream.
Vanessa and her event staff worked with us hand in hand and made themselves available whenever we could make it to HB. At all times they were courteous, knowledgeable, and they seemed genuinely excited for us. When the big weekend finally arrived, EVERYTHING was exactly as we had dreamed, and they made it even more special with a few subtle touches. Because we had a lot of family coming in from out of town and meeting for the first time, we actually rented out the fire pit the night before the wedding. With s'mores for the kids and an open bar for the adults, everyone was able to relax and get the party off on the right foot. Highly recommended.
The wedding day itself was bliss. Perfection. Long story short, we set a very high bar, and the Waterfront stepped up and met it with an unwavering smile and air of professionalism. We can't wait for our 1 year anniversary so we can return and relive all of our happy memories. In fact, we had such a good time, we might sneak back earlier for a crab cake lunch by the pool...

I feel like they gave me the perfect wedding! My husband and I were blown away by their service and quality of the hotel.

Usually there are things that can go wrong at a wedding but ours went off without a single problem thanks to their amazing staff and our wedding planner who was included in the package. The package deal they offer is the best and it's really a great value. I never felt stressed through out the wedding process because they took care of everything !!! And they also provide you with a great vendor list which was very helpful. I am so happy I got married at the waterfront beach resort : )

Everything turned out absolutely perfect from the help of her planning. It looked exactly how we imagined it and was so beautiful and everything went according to schedule with no stress. She is extremely talented and is so much fun to work with. The gazebo next to the hotel was perfect for our ceremony and everything was set up appropriately and the hotel staff did an amazing job for the reception with the food and everything. Beautiful wedding venue in close to our hometown of orange with an amazing staff and Vanessa to coordinate every last detail. I most definitely would recommend the Hilton to all other brides!!

We selected this vendor after meeting with Kathy last December. We first visited this exciting Hilton property in September 2012 and most all of the employees are still there and remembered us even a year later (which adds a very personable touch). We are from Las Vegas and we wanted a beach wedding with a reception in a ballroom that was ocean front. The Cielo Mare Ballroom was perfect! Everyone of our guests raved that the filets and the chicken dishes were the BEST they'd ever had! The executive chef is amazing here! Many resorts that we visited prior to the Waterfront were not very accepting of our desire to get married on the beach but Kathy embraced us and supported us the whole way! There were so many details that Kathy helped us out with (she's pretty much a wedding expert). We had a personal room block with a web link to give to our guests and an amazing honeymoon suite for our wedding weekend! I was surprised to find out the day after that there were 3 weddings the day I got married because I was convinced I was the only Bride on property. If you want a flawless wedding and ALL of your guests to tell you that they just attended the best wedding they've ever been to...this is the place to get married! Thank you to EVERYONE at the Waterfront Beach Resort for contributing to the best day of our lives! From the valet guys, to the girls at the Surf Hero, Monique at the pool, to Mark at the front desk, to our amazing Banquet Captain, Faye, Emily, and of course, the wonderful catering manager, Kathy. You were ALL a part of this incredible experience and everything came together with such excitement and love... So perfect!

When my daughter Marly got engaged we looked at a lot of possible venues, but when we went to the Waterfront we were blown away by the location and attention we were given. Once we met with the wedding staff we knew we had found a great facility to make my daughter's special day seamless. Kathy, Emily, Vanessa and the whole staff were amazing. Very attentive as well as intuitive regarding what we were trying to accomplish.. A great vendor makes the job seamless during the planning and event day and the staff were amazing. Not only did they do a fabulous job at the location, their planning assistance and creativity was beyond all expectation. They listened to my daughter's vision for a traditional white ceremony and a bright Caribbean party reception and made it happen. The venue also includes a planner for the month before the wedding and Wendy Dahl with Chic Productions was indispensable. I would recommend the Waterfront for any event, large or small, no matter how simple or elaborate. You guys are amazing.....

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Kathy at the Hilton. I was sold when I saw the venue, the outdoor pavilion which was perfect for our summer wedding with 250 guests. My husband was sold when he found out that they can serve Wahoo's fish tacos and procure a keg of his favorite craft beer. Kathy was friendly, patient, knowledgable, responsive, organized - basically I couldn't have asked for anything more! The reception was so much fun, I was blown away by how beautiful the setup was both inside and outside the pavilion. Though I didn't get to eat much food the day of, all of our guests absolutely loved it. Thank you Kathy and all of the Hilton staff!

Kathy and her team at the Waterfront Beach Resort were absolutely wonderful! The terrace where the ceremony took place (Pacific Terrace) was the perfect size for our 50 guests and offered a beautiful ocean view without making anyone feel too cramped. The reception in the Cielo Mare ballroom was equally perfect for our group. Church and his team made sure to accommodate any of the picky eaters on my guest list and even made sure my and Jon's food did not get cold while we were up walking around talking to our guests. The vendor suggestion list they gave me was extremely helpful and helped me find vendors who all worked really well together. Our guests and especially our parents were very impressed with the Hilton team and definitely enjoyed the weekend!

We were honored to celebrate our wedding at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach, CA in March 2012. From start to finish, the staff was incredible. Cathy in Reservations made it easy for us to have a room block and helped all of our guests secure their discounted room rate, and provided extra assistance to those with special needs. I talked with her often and she was always so friendly and courteous, I couldn't wait to meet her in person. The valets and bellhops remembered us each time we came and went, and congratulated us regularly. The amazing events team of Danielle and Vanessa helped make our wedding visions come true and were armed with a backup plan when our poolside wedding was threatened by a fast-approaching storm. Our ceremony was lovely in the Pacific Ballroom with the backdrop of the ocean through the windows. Our reception was exquisite in the Grand Ballroom which had plenty of room for our 150 guests. The food was PHENOMENAL! Our guests can't stop talking about the appetizers and the dinner, all provided by the award-winning Shades Restaurant within the hotel. The catering staff was super attentive to us and always made sure we had our beverages of choice and all the food we wanted. Our preparation and honeymoon suites were so classy and comfortable. When we got back to our room after the reception had ended, we were excited to find Angus burgers and chocolate milkshakes waiting for us, which we had arranged with Church. JD, the hotel manager, had left us a hand-written card congratulating us and offering us a free in-room breakfast voucher for the next morning. The hotel grounds were clean and well-maintained and the pool was a great meeting spot for all of our guests who turned the wedding weekend into a mini-vacation. It was a dream wedding for us and the wonderful people at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort made the happiest day of our lives even more memorable and enjoyable as they took all of the stress off of us and provided an amazing event that our friends and family will always refer to as "the wedding of the century". (Thank you thank you thank you to all those involved!)

The hotel grounds were clean and well-maintained and the pool was a great meeting spot for all of our guests who turned the wedding weekend into a mini-vacation. It was a dream wedding for us and the wonderful people at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort made the happiest day of our lives even more memorable and enjoyable as they took all of the stress off of us and provided an amazing event that our friends and family will always refer to as "the wedding of the century". (Thank you thank you thank you to all those involved!) Read less

My wedding reception was great at the Hilton Waterfront. We had about 90 guests in the Cielo Mare room which was a perfect size for us. The setup was beautiful and the service was the best! We had several guests comment that the staff was very professional. The food was excellent. We got to attend a food tasting prior to the event to chose our dinner selections. Danielle was super helpful in planning and answering my questions the whole time. She was very responsive by phone and email. I had such a great time and was able to enjoy the evening reception because I knew we were in great hands. I highly recommend this venue!

Danielle W. and the rest of the staff at the Waterfront Hilton are amazing! Danielle made the whole wedding planning process so easy and is such a pleasure to work with. She made sure that my wedding was absolutely perfect! Every staff member that we came in contact with was more than helpful and always friendly. If I were to go back and do it all again I would choose the Waterfront Hilton and Danielle without a doubt!

Danielle at the Waterfront Hilton made our dream wedding a reality. Huntington Beach is very near & dear to us and it was so meaningful to be able to get married here! This hotel is luxurious but also intimate so that you don't get lost in a sea of ballrooms. Danielle is super responsive and nowadays I greatly appreciate people who are effective communicators, especially over email. She is also really sweet and a true professional! It was a beautiful day to get married at the Gazebo and the Pacific Ballroom/Terrace overlooking the ocean is truly breathtaking. The service here is incredible and the entire staff really took care of us (valet, bell service, etc.) The banquet manager, Church, was so accommodating and made sure we got to eat the dinner that we so carefully selected, filled all our glasses at all times, and took care of our every need. On top of that he is just a really cool guy! We love going back here and reliving the happiest day of our lives.

I really loved this venue, especially as we had a small wedding (around 60 people). The Hilton was very flexible about providing the space outside Pacific Terrace overlooking the ocean and with a backdrop of palm trees. Everything, from the appetizers and dinner, bar service, and wedding coordinator were flawless. I could not have imagined having my wedding anywhere else. The Hilton staff went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect.

What a fabulous experience we had with the Hilton Waterfront Resort. Every staff member we came across, from our wedding planner, to the servers at the reception, to the bell hops were beyond helpful. It was a true delight planning our wedding with their staff, as they were very accommodating and easy to work with.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Hilton Waterfront. The ceremony was outdoor under the gazebo and the reception was at the pacific ballroom. We loved this venue and the wedding team at the Hilton were fantastic. We worked with Vanessa, she was great with everything and gave us good advise on hiring vendors, the only complain I have is that she was not there herself on the day of the wedding. Although I'm in general very happy with how everything turned out there were some confusions with our bridal party and parents not knowing exactly where to go before and after the reception on the site that could've been avoided easily if a Hilton representative was there to direct them. Overall we were very happy with our wedding, the food was great (we had the Steak & Salmon), the room was gorgeous overlooking the ocean, and the staff were professional. I have to say that this venue was very expensive and I went way over my budget but it was a high quality venue. I'm glad that they included a wedding planner in their ceremony package, that was so helpful. I rated the responsiveness 4.5 because during the planning process sometimes we had to call several times for someone to get back to us, which is not a big deal, but for the price we were paying we expected quick responses all the time.

Vanessa and the hotel staff are absolutely amazing!

I originally did not want a hotel wedding, I thought I would get a cookie cutter package with limited choices for making it unique. That is what we experienced at other locations.

Then there was the Waterfront! They make you feel like you are the only person to be getting married there and really care about your day. They are so knowledgable and helpful and you get a lot of perks in the packages! Our wedding turned out to be everything we could dream of and more. I felt like I could be friends with everyone there and they were all helping me plan! I can't say enough about them.

Our day went off without even the slightest hitch. I wish i could relive the day every day! It was stress free and perfect. Our guests are still talking about it and saying how much they loved the hotel!

Thanks everyone at the Waterfront!

Beautiful location for ceremony and reception! Very professional and helpful staff. Possibly the best part was the food, which was amazing! I had so many people tell me it was the best chicken or steak they had ever had. This venue also requires a wedding coordinator, which was soooo helpful, everything ran smoothly and stress free. Many guests said it was the most fun and beautiful wedding they'd ever attended. Would 100% recommend! Also got a beautiful ocean view suite for the night of the wedding :)

We loved this location. It is not cheap (for us) but what beach location in OC is? They were very easy to work with. 20-30K for a July Saturday night wedding includes: ceremony, cocktail hour with beer & wine, full dinner, dessert, month of coordinator, wedding night stay in a beach front suite, basic white linens, cooperate chairs, dance floor, good service).

My wedding experience with the Hilton Waterfront Huntington Beach was fantastic! Danielle Wagner from Sales & Catering was extremely accomodating. From the get-go, she was extraordinarily helpful and responsive. She made sure we had everything we wanted and needed and worked agreeably with our planners on a very tight budget. Our wedding suite was absolutely spectacular, and all of the hotel staff gave us star treatment and made our stay one we will never forget. Our 350 guests were really impressed by the location, venue, and the accomodation they received as well. I highly recommend this venue!

So glad we chose The Waterfront Beach Resort as our venue! The hotel is beautiful with such great people working there, down to the waitstaff who were so nice and accomodating. Our guests felt right at home. We got married on the pool deck, and it was such a gorgeous place to get married, with the pool and beach background, with sunlight filtering through the palm trees. The pictures we saw were magical. And with the close proximity to the beach, we were able to sneak away for on-the-beach photos to make it back in time for the Grand Entrance!

Vanessa is the best. She was always replying within 24 hours of my emails. The food was GREAT. We had either the halibut or prime rib. The prime rib was the better choice by FAR. They introduced me to the banquet manager the night of the wedding. I didn't really understand what the purpose of his job was but I didn't tip him. Instead I tipped the people who cleaned up after us. I felt they worked 10x harder than he. Great place to get married. All my guests thought that the pool deck was REALLY gorgeous and my bridesmaids appreciated it. Their heels didn't sink in while walking and stand up at the alter.

The Hilton Waterfront is a beautiful place! I loved it! The first person I was working with was not as responsive, but she ended up leaving that job, and the new person was awesome! They were very accommodating with all of my requests. They give you a preferred vendor list when you book with them and you have to book your vendors with their people, but I was very pleased with the people on their list. I had a great experience there. At the reception, my husband and I sat at a sweetheart table and basically had our own server the entire night! I loved everything about my wedding, and I owe most of that to the venue. I loved it. And the honeymoon suite you get for the night of your wedding is awesome!!
