Fodor's Expert Review The Portofino Hotel & Yacht Club

260 Portofino Way, Redondo Beach, California, 90277, USA

Open your balcony door and listen to the calls of seabirds and sea lions from ocean- and channel-side rooms (earplugs are provided for humbugs); marina-side rooms overlook sailboats and docks. Interiors are traditionally beachy—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. The freshly renovated Baleen restaurant has an open, airy tropical plantation vibe and excellent craft cocktails; try the Chef's Table prix-fixe experience for groups of up to 10. The attached bar offers live music on the weekends.

PROS

  • bike or walk to beach from the hotel's private peninsula
  • excellent Baleen restaurant overlooking the harbor

CONS

  • higher rates in summer and for ocean-view rooms
  • restaurant may be noisy due to the adjacent bar
  • some areas could do with a refresh
