“A little sea-bathing would set me up forever.”

Mrs. Bennet would have been in raptures in the celestial splendor of the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa.  Described as “Heaven on Earth Beauty” by one enthusiastic TripAdvisor reviewer, the hotel is located directly on Pacific Coast Highway, built on a slight rise, so that the blue Pacific is all you see.  The substantial grounds are punctuated with Spanish-style fountains, coastal landscaping and several pool areas.  There are 517 guest rooms, many with breathtaking ocean views.

Digging your toes in the sand is just a short stroll away, across an over-highway bridge.  Hotel staff provides you towels and chairs as you descend onto the beach.

Choose from several dining options on the hotel premises.  Watertable offers fresh contemporary American fare with artisanal cocktails and an incredible breakfast/brunch menu.  Pete’s Sunset Grill is a casual restaurant offering burgers, pizza and pasta.

Within easy walking distance is the new Pacific City complex, a mix of dining, shopping and entertainment venues that reflects the modern “artisanal marketplace” emerging in many American cities.

The hotel is just a few blocks from Huntington Beach’s Main Street.  Guests may stroll along the beach, or for a minimal charge take a shuttle to the pier.  This casual and al fresco downtown area is alive with cafes, restaurants, apparel, jewelry and surf shops.  Browse the wonderful International Surfing Museum and get a thorough understanding of why the sport permeates the city’s culture.
