Just okay . . .

The Portofino faces the ocean on the west side, then also faces the marina on the east side. We paid extra to be on the second floor(out of 3) on the marina side. First of all, we looked at the marina from across the parking lot(boo), then our view was partially blocked by trees. The walls are thin, the rooms are small, the shower didn't drain well, and the restaurant was booked for Father's Day, so we checked out early to have breakfast somewhere else. Other than that, it was just okay . . . . Beware! If you stay on the first floor of the marina side, you can see right into the rooms!!

For heaven's sake, make a reservation at Baleen , which is the onsite restaurant, or you may be left out! There is other dining nearby, but Baleen looks to be the best.

Luxurious and romantic

Spacious rooms, elegantly equipped, with views of the ocean (optional). Comfortable and peaceful right on the ocean. Personal attention from the staff. A real find but very pricey. For $500 and up a night is it really necessary to charge an extra $26 for parking and Internet?

Portofino

The hotel was nice and very quiet all hours of the day. The staff is kind of scarce at times, especially the valet. Otherwise the staff are very helpful and friendly and room service is top notch. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Very classy!!

Baleen across the parking lot has excellent drinks, nice and strong. Food is very pricey there but worth it for the overall experience. Take advantage of the beach cruisers that they let you use; it's a wonderful bike ride down the trail along the beach. Full California experience!!!

Nice hotel

Comfortable bed and nice room. Only complaint was the A/C never got that cold and made it difficult to sleep in the muggy heat. Other than that everything about the hotel was very nice, with friendly staff.

Beautiful location

I took my girlfriend to Redondo Beach for her 30th birthday. Based on her smile, I made the right choice. The room was nice with a beautiful view of the marina and is in walking distance to the beach and great food. We really enjoyed our stay.

Weekend Get Away

It was pretty really easy find, since I got there everyone was very pleasant and said hi. I got the marina view, the rooms were comfortable, and the lobby was beautiful they had a mini from which I spent all the my nights there. The bartender Pau definitely provided excellent customer service, was very professional.

A little disappointed this time....

Usually we have had a great experience at this hotel, but after 3 different stays in about 8 weeks, this fourth time was a bit of a disappointment. This room was smaller than before, and the bathroom faced the foot of the bed. I asked to change rooms when we first checked in, (for 2 nights)...they did, but gave us the exact same room, farther down the hall...and then there were no other choices...So the experience was not quite as pleasant as in the past. This was for Tues and Wed nights, so it was surprising to me that they couldn't do better...
