Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Set on a private peninsula about 30 miles from Los Angeles, Portofino Hotel & Marina is a sleepy resort surrounded by sand and sea. As well as easy access to the beach, expect an old-fashioned charm from this quaint retreat, which is conveniently placed for exploring the local area. The dining and entertainment outlets of Hermosa Beach are just five minutes away by car.
Borrow one of the hotel's free bikes and ride the oceanfront path -- it's flat and runs for 20 miles -- all the way up to Santa Monica, or visit upscale Manhattan Beach and the shops in Manhattan Village, both five miles away. Kids will love King Harbor, next door to the hotel and home to a colony of California sea lions.
The hotel's restaurant Baleen is a "a most welcome addition to the South Bay dining scene", says Fodor's. The menu focuses on ingredients from the sea, with dishes such as fish tacos, lobster sliders and ahi tuna nicoise, and there's a daily happy hour (3-7pm) for discounted drinks and apps.
A special make-your-own bloody mary bar -- self-service and all-you-can-drink -- is available on weekends (from 7am-2:30pm) and stocked with flavoured vodkas, spices and garnishes. There's also a heated outdoor pool and a small fitness room.
True to its Italian town namesake, the bedrooms have a Mediterranean flavour. Each is decorated in beach colours and has a private patio or balcony. Some overlook the marina, but the best views are toward the ocean. Upgrade to a suite for a 4-poster bed, double-sided fireplace and claw-foot tub.
