We had a Board of Directors meeting here. The conference facility, a short walk away, was well run and maintained. the staff was very friendly, helpful, and respectful. It is possible to have some tables outside looking at the lagoon and ocean. The hotel itself was fine. the location is not close to anything, but restaurants and the aquarium. The... More

This Hotel was breathtaking!! The valet was extremely helpful with ideas of where to eat. He was also very accommodating as far as parking was concerned. When we drove in to the grounds in the evening there is a beautiful fountain with a flame at the top which was very unusual. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous!! We experienced some computer...

All the staff was very nice and helpful. The first night I had a room facing the boats in the third floor they had a very nice music playing at night very relaxing. The second night Julia was able to move us to another room with an ocean view I seriously loved both rooms but ocean view it's a must..I... More

Stayed here for a conference last year. It was fine for me. Rooms are clean, the service was fine - service people came quickly when I had a problem with the tv. Several nice restaurants nearby. I liked the oceanside location. Being outside the general LA traffic mess was a plus for me. Also very close to airport. You will... More

Staff were great, they did everything right on arrival. Although it was a short 1 night stay we don't believe it was worth the value. Pillows horrible, got no sleep, room small and not what we expected. Parking is not free and has a fee $26 for the night, we had ours waived because it was our 20th wedding anniversary.... More

My husband and I recently stayed at The Porotofino to celebrate our one year anniversary. Not only was the location beautiful but the staff was incredible, especially Julia Kalianov! Julia was not only cheerful and professional when she checked us in, but she actually arranged for us to receive a complimentary bottle of champagne to celebrate! We spent part of... More

Ask for an ocean view and enjoy the baits and birds from your balcony. Extremely friendly staff. Restaurant okay. Room comfortable and shower pressure excellent. They have free bikes to enjoy the shoreline and overall very relaxing stay. The hotel is dated, but clean and comfortable retro chic!

Ocean views are often times the favorites, with birds, seals, and dolphins directly outside your balcony. I am pleased to read how friendly and accommodating the team was, and that you elected to check out the complimentary bikes. We appreciate you leaving a review, and look forward to your return stay. Warmest wishes, Nathan N. More

Jerome at check in was a gem. He truly made our experience at The Portofino great. We loved our Ocean View room. The bikes were a fun touch. Great restaurants nearby and a short walk/ride to the beach.

My team was in LA for business, and the small group of us stayed at the Portofino. Within the first 5 mins of arrival, the staff welcomed me with complementary valet (24 hr service) for the duration of my stay, and an ocean/marina-front king room by Julia K, who ensured all my needs and concerns were met.

Spent the weekend at the Portofino and enjoyed the food at the hotel as well as the bikes on property to access the boardwalk for a nice relaxing weekend. The Hotel and staff were great and gave good advice on which direction to ride. Overall was a very nice stay and would recommend.
