“Near the beach and LAX”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Recently renovated, this hotel is in a quiet area and feels fresh and new and is great value. Staff are friendly and attentive. The Marina is across the road and there is good walking on the nearby boardwalk. If you want to get away from the big city bustle this is the perfect place.

What an awesome place to stay! Some of the most friendly hotel staff we have ever met! A massive thank you to Lucy an "Aussie Gem", Jennifer, Karen & Elsa on the Front Desk. Steve from Maintenance (We are definitely taking you up on the surf lessons mate) and Kathy the General Manager (Always would come & have a chat at breakfast) I can honestly say you guys were incredible to both us & the kids & truly made us feel at home.. Plus the new renovations to the hotel are fantastic. The facilities & location are terrific. Also the towels are amazing including the bedding, very luxurious. Thanks so much guys, we will be seeing you again soon.

Here are a few really great things about this hotel: new I Home radio's with iPhone ports. Lots of USB jacks in the room, nice towels and toiletries, close to beach / shopping / restaurants, friendly staff. The only thing I would like to see changed is the pool needs an upgrade to reflect the other nice changes. Good for families, good for couples - plenty of rooms so if the hotel is filled with little kids you can ask for a room that is farther away. Karen was very helpful at check in. I would recommend this hotel!

Our team is thrilled The Redondo pleasantly surprised you and Karen is tickled to see her name in the bright lights!

Welcome and thank you for staying as our guest and for sharing the special little delights that make The Redondo unique. The relaxing pool area was indeed upgraded with the entire hotel re-design and our apologies the results aren't quite what you expected.

We hope to see you back to visit us!

I was in CA for a work/vacation trip. I stayed in three hotels over 6 days. This hotel had the BEST towels I have ever used in my life. Very thick and white. The staff had exceptional customer service skills. I got a nice discount on the room with “Grand Opening Discount” deal. Big TV, nice beds with lots of pillows, nice amenities in the bathroom. View of harbor was okay. I walked down Harbor Street to Hermosa Beach. About a mile. I think Redondo Beach is closer. Room was pretty quite at night after everything slowed down. Lots of construction (and traffic) on Harbor Street. Safe neighborhood. I thought the breakfast area was better than most. Lots of choices including waffles and fresh, hot oatmeal (not the packet kind). Cheesecake Factory and Bluewater Grill close by. I will stay here again if I come back to Redondo Beach.

Room Tip: Pick harbor view room away from outdoor balcony.

We are glad to have been an important stop for your business trip and we are thrilled you loved our lush towels and the walkability of the location to the soft sands of several beaches and great food.

Recently stayed a Friday night the first weekend in January. The upgraded hotel is very nice and everything was very new and clean. There was some road construction directly outside, so marina view was a bit blocked.

Had a nice,chilly walk up to nearby Hermosa. The staff was friendly, the comp breakfast decent and had enough items to satisfy. Our view was pretty lousy of the back parking lot and the junky parking lot of the adjacent building.

I received a decent discount via email for the "grand opening", not sure the usual rate but would be a little wary if I paid full price and my view was of garbage in the adjacent lot. But there really isn't much they can do about that.

So overall we really have no complaints, the place is clean and nicely decorated, beds comfortable, staff friendly and the free breakfast worth checking out.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the front - not the back

Thank you very much for your review of The Redondo and for choosing to stay in our first month of an exciting opening!

As a General Manager , clean is my favorite word and our team is very pleased to see you gave us high marks.

The Redondo is excited for the soon to be completed two way, 22 mile bike path in front of the hotel. The path allows for the safe enjoyment of the stunning cliffs of Torrance Beach to the south and all the way to Malibu. Exciting upgrades are planned for the Redondo Beach Harbor area in 2015!

Our City View guestrooms do look to the lovely hills and terra cotta tile roof tops of Redondo Beach and management has made some requests of the back lot with your valuable feedback.

Please come back to see us again on your next visit to town!

Sincere Thanks,

Cathy LeCompte

My husband was down for work, so we stayed here for the week. It's a brand new hotel, just opened 3 weeks ago to be exact. The smell of new is great! While my husband was at work the staff there made my son and I feel right at home. I have no complaints I really had a nice stay. In one direction right across the street you have a pier with plenty of restaurants and in the other direction about 5min away Hermosa beach. There are trails everywhere along pier and beach so everything is in walking distance from hotel. Again thank you staff!( housekeeping, breakfast help, and concierge) we will definetly be back.

We absolutely treasure that The Redondo and our service team made you feel comfy and at home during your business trip.

Thank you for the special mention of each department and their warm hospitality as it means the world to our team and for the 5 star across the board!

It sounds like The Redondo was a great fit for you in the walkability and convenience category and that's great news.

Until we meet again, take care.
