We were given a ground floor room. The room was more of a 3 star quality then 4. We stayed at a 3 star in San fransisco earlier in the week and that was even better then the room we were in. The cleaning staff were really loud outside the room at odd hours of the day which was really... More

Overall, we were not comfortable at the Portofino. At a 4 star hotel, one expects to be a little pampered and to feel comfortable. We did not. The Good: The Portofino is in a very good location for accessing the wharf. It's very easy to find. The bell staff and the valets were very pleasant, helpful and treated us very... More

A lovely seaside hotel that I have stayed at a number of times and always recommend to friends. The restaurant at the hotel does THE BEST breakfast and I keep coming back for that!

My husband and I stayed at the Portofino over this past weekend and were very pleased with our experience. We got an Oceanside upper level room that had a breathtaking view. We arrived late Friday and had in-room dining service which we both enjoyed. We spent a lot of time on our balcony enjoying the serenade from the Sea Lions... More

Portofino is a gorgeous hotel, with a great looking lobby, and picturesque sea lions outside. But it's too expensive when you consider its severe lack of amenities. I don't think I've ever stayed at a luxury hotel that only offers 21 channels on an old TV from way before flat screens were invented, a coffeemaker from the nineties (1890s?), no... More

My grandson (almost 8 years old) and I stayed at the Portofino for two days, March 9-11. The hotel front desk staff was welcoming and very friendly.

I was pleasantly surprised with the beauty of the resort. The grounds, and interior decoration exceeded my expectations. My husband and I had a fun, romantic weekend there.

We have been here once before. We live in San Diego so it's not far but still a treat to be by the beach, on the boardwalk with all the action.
