Upon arrival we opted to upgrade to the ocean view side, it made All the difference! Wonderful little balcony with great water sports watching that we never tired of. The entire staff was at the top of their game, especially Chantelle who gave us a wonderful greeting. We used room service, the lobby bar (thanks for no glaring TV"s all... More

Clean, comfortable and no problems. Excellent restaurant. Will return! The hotel is 20 minutes south of LAX and sits right on the ocean. Peaceful, well presented and very friendly! Good for business or family. It does have a few Board rooms for meetings.

Nice hidden treasure in Redondo Beach. Room was nice as we had a ocean view with spa tub and nice patio. Wish fridge was larger and not just stocked overpriced drinks (BYOB). Staff was awesome and friendly. My only dislike was breakfast as it was a bit pricey (recommend you order and skip the buffet). Other dining options (Cheesecake Factory... More

Staying at the Portofino is consistently the same: pristine grounds, clean rooms, exceptional guest services, and friendly staff. We are always so delighted to stay at this welcoming and inviting hotel where we have made many wonderful memories. As elegant and classy as this place is, it also feels very comfortable and has been just as fun for our 6... More

We stayed here two years ago, and just went back this weekend. Its a Great place to stay. Right on the ocean, but tucked away, away from the tourist. I was surprised to hear that is was at almost full capacity over the weekend because it didn't feel crowded at all. It was peaceful and beautiful. We had a balcony... More

Fantastic location, wonderful room. Bathrooms are very nice and super roomy. Plenty of shelves at the sink area. The hotel is completely self-sustained. This was a mother-daughter trip that was absolutely relaxing. We took advantage of the free beach cruiser bikes and went for a ride towards Palos Verdes. We saw at least two whales in the ocean. I found... More

We choose to stay here one night on a recent visit to the area based on reviews and pictures. It was all it said it was. Alex at the feint desk was very welcoming and upgraded us to an Oceanside room which was awesome, watching the sea lions playing the next morning. The only negative thing was that I wished... More

Pros: Lobby is beautiful !! Seriously could hang out in their sitting room all day its so classy feels like your in a mansion in the Hamptons. Ocean view on the first floor was great. Lovely view of seals, boats, kayakers, paddle boarders going by. Room is very comfortably furnished. My favorite thing about this hotel is that you can... More

Everything on display in the room comes with a price, from the water, stuffed animal, and soap dispenser. I travel with an electrical item that I have to plug into the wall. Normally that means pulling back a night stand or bed. Portofino didn't pass the dust and dirt check. Many guests complained of the seals making noise all night.... More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Like most luxury hotels we do have a mini bar with items available for purchase, but are of course willing to remove them at your request. I am so disappointed to hear about the cleanliness challenges, I will be sure to follow up our housekeeping team to ensure behind the bed is... More
