We stayed at the Portofino the last week of May, for 2 nights.
After a long day of driving, it was wonderful to arrive at the Portofino. I really didn't know what to expect - it was hard to tell from the pictures I saw - clearly they didn't do the hotel justice!
The rooms were pretty big and clean. The bathroom was modern, and the bed was really comfortable!
There is also a very nice sitting area near the front desk - we didn't take advantage of it though. We used the hotel just as a place to sleep after long days of touring. We'll definitely take advantage of all the amenities when we return to California and return to the Portofino.
One thing we didn't like (in addition to the parking fees) was the fact that our room was next to one of the side exits, whose door slammed so hard every time someone would walk out. But I guess we should have spoke up!
Another thing was that there seemed to be no fan in the bathroom. After a hot shower, everything gets steamed up in there!
But all in all, it was a great experience and we look forward to our next visit!
