Via Priceline, we discovered the Portofino. Wanting a location in Redondo Beach, convenient to family, and this was perfect. Nice lobby, where we spent several evenings listening to the excellent local, LIVE music which was provided, enjoying a cocktail and looking out over the marina watching boats, birds and seals traversing the waterway. Free beach cruiser bikes are available on-site... More

Don't let her superficial appearance seduce you. Aside from the waterfront location, this hotel has little to offer at any price. Where do I begin with what was lacking in this hotel, since there were so many deficiencies? The room at first glance was attractively decorated with a marine theme. But the love affair ended there. Since there were NO... More

I apologize that our hotel’s services did not meet your expectations. While many of our guests enjoy our standard guest room, if on your next stay you are looking to have a larger room we do have premiers, and deluxe rooms that offer 75 additional square footage, and suites which add a large living room, and significant space in the...

Stayed at the Portofino hotel in Redondo Beach during a two day business trip. Had a room that overlooked the ocean. The staff was excellent. The location was great. Short walk to Redonda Beach Pier and Boardwalk, and Hermosa Beach Pier. Lots to do within walking distance. Marina on the other side was beautiful with all the boats. The hotel... More

Would not stay at hotel again. The hotel and rooms are old looking and in disrepair. They appear to think carpet and paint is all there is to a nice room. Not much storage space in the room. One small closet. The frig is full of stuff they want you to buy so it is unusable. There is a used... More

I am so disappointed your experience did not live up to the normally stellar standards the Portofino is known to maintain. For your next visit, our fully stocked mini-bar while loved by many guests is removable upon request. I am also pleased to report that our exercise room had recently undergone a complete update featuring all new True Fitness equipment.... More

We stayed two nights in this hotel in connection with a family wedding in nearby Palos Verdes. The hotel was situated right on the harbor. Our room faced the marina, and not the ocean. We asked for a 3rd floor room which had a nice view of the boats in the marina. The deluxe room was large with a sitting... More

Congratulations to the newlyweds! I am pleased you enjoyed our well-appointed marina side guest rooms overlooking the water. The deluxe rooms are often the favorite on the Marina side, offering approximately an additional 75 square feet which includes a comfortable seating area. Having a friendly team is always our top priority, and reading that our staff treated you well makes... More

Don't miss this fabulous experience--a balcony on the ocean, great service, and a beautiful, comfortable room. From the balcony, we saw hummingbirds, dolphins and California Sea Lions, who sang to us all night. We rode bikes to Hermosa Beach and the pier and had a wonderful meal in the restaurant. I can't wait to go back.

The staff is excellent. The lobby and lobby bar are beautifully decorated and a great place to hang out with others, or to have a relaxing drink in the evening. The toiletries provided in the bathroom are delightful!

I am so pleased that our staff was “excellent.” We are honored you choose our Lobby Living Room as your choice location for a cocktail, and to relax for the evening. Great tip! Oceanside accommodations are usually the favorites of our guests. Warmest wishes, Nathan N. More
