When the staff found out we were staying there to celebrate our anniversary the gave us a complementary upgrade to an ocean view room with a jacuzi tub for two. The room was large, very nicley appointed and clean.t The staff was friendly, attentive and helpful throughout our stay. The location was ideal, the food was delisous the common areas beautiful. We'd recomend this property to anyone!

Not what I thought

It was a very nice room, a little small for the money, but very clean. The staff was friendly and when I had any issues, they were resolved to satisfaction very quickly. The only negative was that valet staff seemed to always be gone (not getting another guests car) whenever we came out. The restaurant and lounge was very nice and the staff attentive and personable. Very close to and central to all beach and oceanside activities as well as town.

Awesome experience

The Portofino Hotel was everything I was looking for. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was nice to be able to relax with all the amenities readily available. The restaurant was exceptional with the staff knowledgeable and friendly. This will not be my last trip to the Portofino and next time I will bring my family!!!

a good base

The Portofino is a nice property on the marina. We had a view room. We did see the water but were given a first floor room which also gives you a view of an ugly cement wall. The room was a good size, clean, nice large TV and jacuzzi tub. The barking of the seals was not a bother to us at all. The restaurant served a good breakfast. Most guest seemed to be staying at the hotel for business as they have an area for private events/meetings. Although the area was fine, there really isn't anything nice to walk to--the pier is not worth the walk--but this was a good base for our visit to the Los Angeles/San Diego area.

Comfortable and welcoming

The Portofino is a great hotel experience. You walk into a warm and welcoming reception area. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. You have a large flat screen T. V. The Hotel restaurant Baleen is fantastic and the Hotel is located within walking distance of many other fine restaurants. I think you will enjoy this place.

Perfect Vacation Hotel

I love the Portofino. Sitting in the window seat overlooking the ocean in the lobby/bar area is always one of my favorite parts of the trip, they sea lions are the perfect music. The room is beautiful and airy, there is a bar for evening, coffee in the morning and cucumber infused water all day long. I do wish that the rooms were large enough to hold two queen beds, as the doubles are small. Free loan of their beach cruiser bikes is a fabulous chance to ride along the Strand through the beach cities.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

It is a manageable walk or short cab ride to Hermosa Beach (or a bit further to Manhattan Beach) where there are wonderful restaurants, bars and a variety of music to be had. We managed to hear three different types of music within two blocks.

My review of The Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club

The Portafino Inn and Yatch Club was a great place to stay. We had a good time and everything was great.We will stay there again next year.The sea lions just outside the door was a plus because we live in Upper Michigan and everything is frozen in Feb.

for sun, for sea, four starts

I lucked into a magnificent choice! The Portofino Hotel & Yacht Club is right on the water. The rooms overlook the marina (great view) or the Pacific (greater view). My room was large, sunny, well-appointed, clean, and welcoming. Housekeeping does a marvelous job, and detail receive attention, as would be expected at a 4-star hotel. The front desk staff is pleasant and mostly professional--it appears they use local college students rather than career hotel professionals, but they do choose and train them well. While it was less than impressive when the lobby ran out of coffee (AND the reserve coffee was gone too), I must say the breakfast & lunch restaurant on the marina is cozy, with a fabulous view of the sunlit marina, and the food is good. The salmon omelet made for a marvelous breakfast. The hotel provides beachcomber bikes free for guests to sally up the boardwalk and enjoy breathtaking views of the Pacific. Beautiful beaches are not even three minutes bike ride away. If--no, WHEN--I return to Los Angeles for holiday, I'll definitely consider staying here again.
