Fodor's Review

Open your balcony door and listen to the sounds of a naturally occurring Sea World at the Portofino: Ocean- and channel-side rooms echo with the calls of sea birds and sea lions; marina side rooms look over sailboats and docks. From the hotel's very private peninsula, walk or bike to the nearby seaside lagoon or rent a kayak and explore the protected harbor. Interiors are beachy but sophisticated—guest rooms are a mix of blues and yellows, set off by crisp, white bed linens. Compact, well-designed bathrooms are accented in stainless steel, with extra-plush towels and pleasing bath products. In its own building overlooking the harbor, is Baleen, the hotel's excellent restaurant—a most welcome addition to the South Bay dining scene.

Harbor seals make up for a lot!

We've stayed here several times. Don't get an oceanside room if you're a light sleeper...the many harbor seals just outside in the harbor bark a lot! Didn't bother me, but it might interrupt others' sleep. Pluses: The location is good, with easy access to the PCH and 405. The rooms are clean, and the staff has been unfailingly nice. Minuses: Pretty small pool; bathrooms are on the small side; have to pay to park or hike in from the adjacent parking
