Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach California

The Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa is a quick 35 minute drive from LAX. The hotel requires 22,000 Hyatt points per night. For our stay we used a Hyatt Free night from their Faster Free night promotion a few years ago.

We checked in and our Diamond status was honored. We were given an upgrade to an ocean view room with a fantastic view. The gym and spa at this hotel were memorable. Both were in top condition during our stay. We did not have children during this stay, but they have nice pools for both adults and children. They have a resort fee of $25 which is waived for Diamond members.



There are frequent weddings at this hotel. During our stay they had an evening cocktail hour set up on the lawn outside our window.

Huntington Beach is right across the street from the hotel. You can access the beach via walkway over the road. During our stay the beach was busy with a Paintball tournament so we took a drive down to Newport, Dana Point and Laguna beach for the day.

Bottom Line

The Hyatt Huntington Beach treats their Diamond members well. Their location is close enough to LAX to feel like you are getting away but close enough to catch your next flight out (perhaps to Bora Bora in Air France business class). The room rates were showing around $211 for a random set of dates. Since the hotel requires 22,000 points per night you may want to consider paying the rate and using 6,000 Hyatt points to upgrade to a suite category room.

I would recommend this hotel for a quick weekend stop in California if you are looking for a beach. It was the perfect mix of resort and beach hotel. We rented bikes for rides along the beach and relaxes in the Spa or by the pool. The Andaz Hollywood pool is also a nice oasis to enjoy a day by the pool.

  1. Hyatt HB may be the best for families – so much on-site and a wide beach across the street that is dragged for kelp each morning.

    Personal favorite is the Highlands Inn just for the view.

  2. I liked the Hyatt Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco. Why? Because it has been the only Hyatt I’ve stayed at in California.

  3. Hyatt Highlands in Carmel… you just can’t find similar striking views. Runner’s up include the Hyatt HB Resort, Hyatt Santa Barbara, and Andaz Gaslamp San Diego

  4. Hyatt Regency Orange County/Garden Grove. Property is well located and often generous with suite upgrades for both Diamonds and Platinums. The breakfast buffet offers a good selection as well.

  5. We haven’t stayed at any Hyatt’s yet but are booked for 4 nights at the Huntington Beach Resort this July.

  6. Hyatt Regency La Jolla, which I was at for a friends wedding. Spacious property, and very close to UCSD, the Birch Aquarium, and La Jolla Cove.

  7. Andaz 5th Ave NY – Generous $75 breakfast credit for Diamond members and great upgrades. Gorgeous rooms and excellent location.

  8. My favorite Hyatt property in California is the Andaz San Diego in the Gaslamp District. The hotel is located in the middle of all the major nightlife and the rooms are fabulous. They have an extensive wine bar and the food is great. Last but not least they have a rocking club in the hotel called Ivy and it is always James packed everyday. I recommended you stay at the hotel someday you’ll love it and the staff are super great and nice.

  9. Andaz West Hollywood. Rh Dining is some of the best food I have had at a hotel! Great location.

  10. Hi Sara – Thanks for participating in the last contest. Appreciated the feedback. Hope you enjoy it.

    San Diego seems to get a lot of likes. Also the Carmel and Wine region (of course) properties are like list.

  11. Santa Barbara for sure! ah….so beautiful! Thank you for the chance! We could use this on our family vacation!

  12. The very best Hyatt Hotel is the one on Huntington Beach! We cannot wait to return!
