If you were following along on the good old ‘Gram this past weekend, then you probably noticed quite a few snaps from the Hyatt Huntington Beach. Because we can never stop adding on projects for our house, Eric and I decided that we wanted to add wainscoting to a couple more walls in our living room and bar area. Sounds simple enough. Once the wood panels are up, then starts the sanding, bonding, and painting, and suddenly the entire house is covered in a thin layer of dust and SO many fumes.
So as a sort of early Valentine’s Day (and a definite way to keep from losing our minds), we used our best evacuation route and headed down the street to one of our favorite hotels, the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach. We’ve stayed here once before for Eric’s birthday, but this time we brought along the pup and settled in for four nights. So just in time for Valentine’s Day, I’m rounding up five things to love about the Hyatt Huntington Beach.
Dog-Friendly Hotel: Like I said, we took Louise along with us, and the Hyatt was more than accommodating. When we checked in, there was a dog bed, food and water bowls, and even a few toys in our room for Weeze which was such a nice surprise for this less-than-prepared dog mom. She loved exploring around the property and was able to hang with us on a patio area where we had margaritas on Saturday. Plus, she got so much love from strangers and plenty of beach walks while we were there. Which brings me to…
Bridge to the Beach: I always talk about this in my Instagram stories while I’m there, but it really is SO convenient that there’s a bridge from the Hyatt property across Pacific Coast Highway to the beach. It’s the only hotel in the area that has one, and it made getting out on those beach walks so quick and easy. And trust me, I needed the exercise after…
Pete’s Sunset Grille – If you’re staying at the Hyatt or just live somewhere around Huntington Beach, you have to check out Pete’s. Their spicy margaritas (made seriously spicy with jalapeno-infused tequila) are my favorite of any place around here, and their Barrel Bowls are my jam. (Think coconut rice, broccolini, protein of your choice, a fried egg…) I’m not really a fish taco gal, but Eric and a bunch of our friends love them here. And if you’re still hungry…
Watertable: We ate at Watertable the last time that we stayed at the Hyatt, and we loved it. So this time, we made sure to go back. Twice. In a row. It really is that good. On Sunday night, we shared a bunch of appetizers (Get the meatballs! and the fries!), and on Monday night, we went with favorites from the entree list. Eric went with the Chilean sea bass, and I had the Branzino – both were delicious.
So Many Outdoor Spaces: We’re super lucky to live in a place that has beautiful weather most of the year, so why not spend as much time outside as possible? The pool area (there are a couple, but I prefer the quieter, more adult-friendly one) is huge with tons of seating and a yummy lunch menu. There are fire pits that we sat by at night, and Weeze loved roaming around the big open grass areas.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay and didn’t want to leave! If you’re looking for a really great place to stay in the town that I call home, you really can’t go wrong with the Hyatt Huntington Beach. Now it’s back to reality with my two favorite Valentines – Eric and Weeze, of course. Hope everyone has a great week!
