We recently did an all girls trip to Las Vegas and Los Angeles and booked a night at the Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club.

The lobby and location are very beautiful. Although the ocean view is of a breakwater. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The room was very small and pretty outdated. The staff non intentionally booked us a handicap bathroom but the shower had no rail on the ground so water poured all over the floor. Very dangerous... We almost slipped... More

We had an excellent experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the bikes that you can take down the board walk. Fun staying right on the water and watching the seals play in the ocean. Over all a great experience. We will stay again and again!!

Located directly on the ocean with beautiful decor--tastefully decorated with nautical colors throughout; vaulted ceiling and chandeliers in the lobby/great room overlooking the ocean. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. No charge for using bicycles to visit the pier and nearby beach communities. Staff very gracious and helpful; real sense of service. Since so close to the water, we saw a... More

We got a great deal on one of the on-line sites, so based on the reduced rate, it was excellent. Our deal included comp' parking and a $25 restaurant voucher. Regularly parking at $24 is excessive in my opinion. Water view room was quite nice and very comfortable. Restaurant was pretty good, a little noisy, some dishes very good, some... More

The Portofino is a beautiful hotel. The hotel is older, yet has been updated and decorated immaculately. The colors, lighting and ambiance are lovely. The rooms, however, are definitely on the small side and the walls are thin. I strongly recommend booking the larger room . Also take note that the “harbor view” views are really rooms that are at...

We stayed in Redondo Beach for a wedding & The Portofino was the suggested hotel for the party. It is such a beautiful & airy hotel right on the harbor & the yachts just make the experience that much more exciting for non-beach dwellers! The property was stunning & the restaraunt was beautiful & very good. There are actually sea-lions... More

We were aware of this property as we had stayed in Redondo Beach previously. This was a wonderful experience. The room was huge, even the room facing the marina. There was a separate area with a desk, and the bathroom/dressing room area was huge. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Valet was relatively quick. We did a priceline offer for... More

I was in this hotel for one night as a final night of a recent trip to the Los Angeles area. This was a priceline stay, so I knew nothing about the hotel prior to my visit. First the good.
