  • We worked with Angie at the waterfront resort and she could not have been more accommodating and helpful in making our wedding planning experience so smooth. We were able to personalize our food/drink/guest/vendor package to our preference and Angie spent so much time with us breaking down every cost and possible avenue for our wedding. The venue was absolutely gorgeous and the staff made us feel very comfortable and catered to at every event we attended at the hotel. From the food tasting to the rehearsal and the evening of the wedding. Faye helped explain the food choices and Jessica helped assist with anything else we needed. The team was great and I would highly recommend them to future brides. Although the wedding was not cheap, we did not have any surprises or extra hidden fees that weren't expected. The only negative I would say is that the hotel check in is not until 4 pm. For guests attending the wedding and checking in the day of the wedding it can be tricky if the hotel is... Read more

  • The Waterfront Beach resort was extremely friendly and accommodating! My husband and I live out of state so we had a lot of communication via email and phone. We always received very quick responses! It made our jobs a lot easier! Angie was absolutely fantastic! She took the time to get to know us and what we wanted for our special day! Also- our guests had nothing but positive remarks about the resort!

  • The best thing I did was book at the Waterfront Hilton. From the venue to the wedding coordinator the service was superb The recommendations for the food, makeup and hair, and cake were right on mark. Working with Angie and Faye was wonderful and not only were they helpful but went above and beyond what I expected. My wedding was a dream come true and I never had to worry about anything. I was always treated with utmost respect and still am when I visit the hotel.

  • This is the perfect wedding venue! My husband and I were initially drawn to the hotel because of its location by the beach, near Huntington pier and Main St. The first thing we noticed was how beautiful the venue is, how friendly the staff are, and how intimate the setting felt- despite being a Hilton hotel, it felt like a family-run boutique hotel, which are its roots before Hilton acquired it. We chose a ceremony by the pool overlooking the beach, at sunset, with a cocktail hour/reception in the Pacific Terrace/Ballroom. The pictures are just stunning. High on our list of priorities was not compromising value for our budget, and boy, did The Waterfront deliver! Vanessa Delp, our catering manager, is an absolute rockstar and leads an amazing team. The night was absolutely seamless. We planned our wedding from abroad, so her responsiveness over emails and flexibility with Facetime/Skype was very much appreciated. Her tips on how to stretch our budget, along with vendor recommendations,... Read more

  • This is THE place ladies! If you're looking to get married in Orange County, look no further. I looked at a bunch of venues, and none compared to the Waterfront. From the service my husband and I got when just shopping the venue to the "main event," we were well taken care of by the staff at this property. The Catering Team is top notch. Vanessa, Faye, and Jessica get to know their brides and help you every step of the way... I actually miss them a month later! Anything I needed help with was only a phone call or email away. So responsive and professional! When it came to our wedding, it was beautiful of course, but the beauty was enhanced by all the beauty around us at this hotel. From the marble lobby with the sweeping double staircase, to the gorgeous pool, to the ocean view, the Waterfront is the premier beach hotel in Huntington Beach. The Pacific Terrace looks over and ocean and the adjoining Pacific Ballroom creates an intimate, private area for you and your guests to enjo... Read more

  • We have been going to the Hilton for years for celebration brunches/dinners (birthdays, mother's day, etc.). We have always loved the friendly service from all the staff so choosing the Hilton to have our wedding was a no brainer for us. I couldn't have asked for better service or a better team! Bridget was awesome throughout the entire planning process and the rest of the Hilton team was on top of everything the day of making it an amazing night. Shots waiting for us before we made our entrance? Done. Dinner waiting for us in our hotel room? Done. They really made us feel like it was OUR day, how a bride and groom should feel on their wedding day.

  • At my first venue tour with the Waterfront (as a bride), I knew it was the perfect place to have my wedding. The gorgeous location & property was definitely an added bonus. From the moment I met Vanessa & her team until the day I walked down the aisle, they were all very very nice, courteous, & professional. My husband and I are extremely grateful for the attention & hospitality we received from the entire Waterfront staff...the doorman to the waitstaff. My cousin got married here years before outside at the Gazebo & I've always wanted to do the same. As it turned out, Our wedding was the LAST to use the gazebo before the new upgrades (yay! I made it). P.s. The food was AMAZING! We had the Salmon, Steak, & Herb & Thyme Chicken. Our guests were happy and so were we. Thank you Vanessa!!

  • Bridget, Jessica, Faye, Church, Jesse and all of the Banquets and Kitchen team members at the Waterfront are fantastic people and absolutely superb at their jobs! Neither my husband nor I had a clear vision of the day, but whatever thoughts we had, the Waterfront team surpassed all of our expectations and gave us a beautiful ceremony and super fun reception beyond what we could have hoped for or imagined. Everyone we worked with was friendly, professional, understanding, and extremely helpful. They took such good care of us and we never felt like we needed to worry about any of the details of the day! We cannot recommend this team and venue enough. We've heard nothing but good things from our guests, whether about the food, the drinks or the service. For example, one of our signature drinks wasn't actually a drink that the hotel normally serves, but they did an amazing job with it - it was delicious, beautiful and extremely popular with our guests! We were also very touche... Read more

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE! I am so grateful that we picked this Venue! Not only is it the most gorgeous place, the food and the customer service was incredible. Vanessa Delp & Jessica Pope in the wedding department were amazing! one of them was always there to help me, especially with my million questions. They pointed me in the right direction to vendors. I used almost every recommend vendor on their list and it was great that everybody already knew each other, the location and I didn't need to set up much since the vendors knew where to go and what times to show up. I am so happy with how my Wedding came out! It was a perfect night, everyone made sure it went smooth and that it was stress free. I had my rehearsal dinner the night before and it was just as perfect! I had the best experience planning our Wedding, if I could do it over again I wouldn't change a thing. Holly Chavez of HMC Event Solutions, Vanessa Delp, Jessica Pope & the entire staff at the Hilton really made our Wedding special. ... Read more
