Virgin rating

The hotel

Ever dreamed of living by the ocean? The Portofino will be sure to give you a taste of coastal living, and you'll be stunned by the incredible views on the daily. Eat with views over the marina, and spend your evenings sat around the fire pit, cocktail in hand. Chill out poolside, and take a refreshing dip. Or if pools aren't your thing, head to the marina for kayaking and paddle boarding, and if you head down to the beach, you can pick up a complimentary boogie board for some fun in the sea. After fun-filled days, your room will be a welcome retreat for some down time, complete with, of course, those unforgettable views.

This is a cute little hotel on Redondo Beach. We had marina view. We didn’t see a boardwalk to walk on the beach, instead we drove to nearby beach and parked. The room is small but very clean. We liked having a balcony to enjoy and kept the door open to let in some fresh air. We used the room as a hub as we toured LA. Our room had two double beds,… Read more
This is a cute little hotel on Redondo Beach. We had marina view. We didn’t see a boardwalk to walk on the beach, instead we drove to nearby beach and parked. The room is small but very clean. We liked having a balcony to enjoy and kept the door open to let in some fresh air. We used the room as a hub as we toured LA. Our room had two double beds, a desk, bathroom and closet. It worked for 3 people. Too small if we had the rest of our family with us but worked for us on this trip. Parking was a bit tricky. Spots filled up quickly in the self park, but there was an overflow area. We chose not to valet our car but that option was available ($). The reception area was nice and quaint. They had coffee available. We only realized the day we checked out. We didn’t use the pool because we always got back to the hotel late and it was already closed. We loved hearing the seals at night and in the early morning. Didn’t love the big industrial power lines when driving into Redondo but once you get to the hotel, the marina blocks that view in a good way. Read less

Luxurious property with friendly and welcoming staff. A great place to relax in LA whether on business or for pleasure. Conveniently close to the beach cities (Redondo, Hermosa, Manhattan, etc.) and easily accessible from LAX.

Overall, the atmosphere was very peaceful and relaxing. I had an ocean view room so it was nice siting out on the balcony soaking up the sun. The room quality was subpar in my opinion. I rate if a 2.5 Star. The decor was a little outdated. The bathroom tub/shower is outdated. The lighting in the bathroom was extremely dark. The toilet was too low… Read more

The Room Service. menu was very limited, and I couldn't even order a glass of wine. Read less
