    Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills
    Beverly Hills, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 479 reviewsTripAdvisor (479)
    Free WiFi

    A new addition to the luxury hotel scene in Los Angeles, the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills opened in June 2017. This Hilton-affiliated property occupies a prime spot on Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards, putting guests near shopping and dining hot spots in Beverly Hills. Accommodations are outfitted in a cream and white color scheme, with espresso machines, minibars and bathrooms with two sinks and a separate shower and bathtub. Some rooms and suites also come equipped with terraces overlooking the city. Those looking for pampering should head to La Prairie Spa for a rejuvenating facial, body treatment or massage, or book an appointment at the Tracey Cunningham Salon. Fitness buffs can work out in the 24-hour gym or enjoy rooftop yoga (on weekends). Also available on the rooftop: a pool (a guest favorite) and The Rooftop by JG, which serves cocktails and light bites. For something more substantial, head to Jean-Georges Beverly Hills. Travelers rave about the exceptional service here, the hotel's location and all of its facilities. However, they warn a stay at this Waldorf Astoria outpost won't come cheap. To save some coin, Hilton Honors members can use accrued points to pay for rooms.

    La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort
    La Quinta, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2060 reviewsTripAdvisor (2060)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    With the Santa Rosa Mountains as its backdrop, the La Quinta Resort & Club has been a desert getaway for the Hollywood elite since its opening in the 1920s. Stars such as Greta Garbo and Clark Gable used to seek refuge within the resort's whitewashed casitas, located around 127 miles from Los Angeles. Guest rooms maintain a relaxed yet luxurious ambiance with soothing design accents, leather furniture and fireplaces (in most rooms). The resorts' amenities will also provide visitors with all they need for a relaxing or an exciting getaway. Summer temperatures in the Coachella Valley can enter the triple digits, but La Quinta boasts 41 outdoor swimming pools to keep guests cool and comfortable. If it's not too hot, take advantage of this Waldorf Astoria-affiliated resort's five golf courses or the on-site tennis center, complete with 23 courts and private instruction. Recent travelers lauded La Quinta's seven in-house restaurants, especially the Mexican fare of Adobe Grill. However, get ready for a lot of walking: La Quinta's grounds are manicured and lovely, but it's a trek to span the property. Members of the Hilton Honors program can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here, but make sure you're aware of the daily resort fee that applies to all guests.

    Cape Rey Carlsbad, A Hilton Resort
    Carlsbad, CA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1667 reviewsTripAdvisor (1667)
    Free WiFi

    Overlooking the Pacific from its seat about 5 miles south of Carlsbad, the Cape Rey Carlsbad provides a great home base for beach-going families. Recent travelers say that the Hilton's pool area was large enough to keep the kids occupied for hours, and the free shuttle service to LEGOLAND saves visitors the hassle of finding (and paying for) theme park parking. After a long day at the park, refuel at Chandler's Restaurant, which offers coastal cuisine that suits taste buds of all ages. As for accommodations, visitors will find guest rooms here are spacious and come equipped with flat-screen TVs, cozy beds and complimentary wireless internet access, though several recent guests thought the rooms should be updated. Guests who leave the kids at home can take advantage of the spa and a number of nearby world-class golf courses. Because of its Hilton connection, this resort takes part in the Hilton Honors loyalty program.

    The Waterfront Beach Resort, A Hilton Hotel
    Huntington Beach, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2324 reviewsTripAdvisor (2324)

    This Hilton resort is all about location. Every guest room at The Waterfront Beach Resort – which cozies up to the sands of Huntington Beach about 40 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles –has an ocean view. Of course, while the beach is a main draw here, guests also reserve praise for the resort's pool and fitness center. After a day in the sun, cool off at Shades Restaurant & Bar, which serves up classic American fare (don't miss the magician-accompanied Champagne brunch on Sundays). Although the in-room decor isn't exactly innovative, the accommodations here receive compliments for their spacious layouts and comfortable accoutrements. Each of The Waterfront Beach Resort's guest rooms comes equipped with a private balcony, a signature Hilton Serenity bed, a flat-screen TV and high-speed Internet access (for a fee). What's more, members of the Hilton Honors rewards club can earn and redeem points here.

    The Beverly Hilton
    Beverly Hills, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 4179 reviewsTripAdvisor (4179)

    The Beverly Hilton is a classic, but some say it can't keep up with the newest, hippest hotels of Los Angeles. In fact, it's probably better known as the home of the Golden Globe Awards (which take place annually in the International Ballroom) than it is as a place to spend the night. However, the 569 rooms – which feature Egyptian cotton linens, Bose Wave music systems and BABOR Beauty toiletries – hint at luxury, though some guests say that the accommodations here feel dated. The hotel staff, on the other hand, earns props from visitors, who say that The Beverly Hilton's employees were friendly and efficient. For a true taste of Hollywood glam, grab a table at CIRCA 55, a 1950s-inspired restaurant that serves up tasty plates of California fare. Or, lounge by the largest heated hotel pool in Beverly Hills. You'll find this L.A. standby in Beverly Hills, of course, along Wilshire Boulevard.

Most guests report that the hotel is a standard Hilton property with (thankfully) no surprises.

Still, some guests say that the rooms could use a facelift as they show some wear. This property also houses two pools, a fitness center and several eateries, and members of the Hilton HHonors loyalty programs can earn and redeem points here.
