First time staying here, we found a great deal on Priceline for this hotel. The staff was amazing, so very nice and conversations were fun. We stayed here over Christmas and the place was very quiet. They have an on-site restaurant called Baleen and it had really good food, just a little pricey. There's a Joe's Crabshack right next door... More

Portofino Hotel was a stunner. 20 minutes from airport, huge renovated Americana style rooms (We are Kiwi's so sometimes it can get a bit much but this hotel was tastefully classic) , fantastic location next to the Marina, just a short walk to a classic diner: Ruby's and only minutes from the boardwalk and it has one of the best...

Originally from this area, I came back to visit family and decided to stay at this hotel that has been around for a long time. The location is wonderful. We had originaly booked a marina view and changed to an Ocean view for the rest of our stay. It was well worth it. The hotel has a very comfortable yet... More

I had some drinks in bar with Krista and she was amazing!! Krista, along with the live music were great. The live music was top notch. Her name was Melissa Brethauer and she had such a soft soulful voice. I could listen to her for hours, which I did. Www.melissabrethauer.com My stay was very comfortable and the views were great....

Great service is always an excellent start to a fantastic review. Krista is among the newest members of our team, but she’s not new to great service. This hospitality veteran truly brings an environment all her own to the Lobby Living Room, and the Live Music Thursday-Saturday in both the Living room and the Baleen Lounge makes the Portofino Hotel...

Having stayed in many hotels around the world, this was probably the best all round experience I've had. If you want to stay in a hotel that doesn't feel like a hotel, this is the place. From the moment of arrival to departure, we were made to feel welcome, the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating without exception.

We always welcome world travelers, and feel fortunate that they choose us as their L.A or beachfront destination. Our unique boutique property feels more like home than a hotel, and the warm welcome feeling should start the second you step foot on our property! Thank you so much for leaving such a wonderful review. Warmest wishes, Nathan N. More

Sitting at the bar on a Friday night enjoying a drink with the hubby. We love our new bartender friend "Krista." She makes the best drinks and is so personalable. It's definitely nice to find a home away from home.

Nothing better than a Friday night in the Lobby Living Room with Krista the star bartender and service professional. Her exotic libations and friendly personality makes her a true asset to our property. Your welcome to join us anytime! Warmest wishes, Nathan N. More

On a recent business trip, I had the pleasure of staying at the Portofino Hotel. I was surprised at what a gorgeous little getaway this was... so close to LAX, but you felt like you were a million miles away from the craziness that is Los Angeles. The location in Redondo is close to shops, restaurants, the boardwalk. Perfect for... More

Upon arrival for a business trip, my colleague and I were upgraded to an oceanfront room because it was our first stay (pleasant surprise!). The hotel offers a very nice value. The staff is helpful and friendly--and the views especially on the ocean side are spectacular. The lobby area is beautiful and the wifi worked great. My colleague and I... More
