Top-notch customer service and delicious on-site restaurant
Daily resort fee does not include Wi-Fi access
Guests are quick to fall in love with this pet-friendly, beachfront resort in Huntington Beach, California. For some, it's the property's easy beach access, and for others, it's the soothing atmosphere found around the fire pits that pepper the property's courtyard. But everyone seems to agree that the Kimpton Shorebreak Resort's customer service is phenomenal. Previous guests were also more than satisfied with this Kimpton hotel's spacious rooms, which are dressed in blue and white decor and equipped with private balconies, yoga mats, Italian Frette linens and flat-screen TVs. When they aren't lounging on the beach or prepping for a good night's sleep, travelers enjoy spending time at Pacific Hideaway, the in-house bar and restaurant that earns praise for its accommodating wait staff and casual coastal cuisine. Most additional amenities are covered by the $35 daily resort fee, including daily a social hour that includes complimentary beverages. What's more, members of the IHG Rewards program can earn and redeem points here, as well as receive complimentary perks like free Wi-Fi access.
