A Local Escape

We’ll see you soon at this nearby oasis featuring lighthearted luxury.

Nestled on a serene Redondo Beach peninsula within the historic South Bay area, The Portofino Hotel & Marina is a haven that feels worlds away but is just a stone’s throw from the excitement Los Angeles and Hollywood have to offer. Sophisticated but never pretentious, The Portofino isn’t just a place to get away. It’s a place to get together.

Opened in 1962 by race car enthusiast Mary Davis, The Portofino was famously the final destination of The Cannonball Run—a car race from New York to Los Angeles that first was held in 1971 and eventually was the basis of a feature film. Race enthusiasts still make the trip today, and the hotel has built a following on its luxury-with-a-touch-of-levity vibe. 

The hotel recently completed a multi- million-dollar refresh that includes an updated waterfront Living Room lobby perfect for sunset cocktails with next-level views. The upgraded guest rooms, baths and luxury suites evoke a glammed-up beach feel with mirrored glass décor and crisp nautical details. Rooms on the ocean side come with private balconies that seem to float over the water, while rooms on the marina side offer dock views of sailboats and basking sea lions. 

The Portofino isn’t just a place to get away. It’s a place to get together.

Celebrating the outdoors is a must at this 161-room resort. The heated pool and jacuzzi overlook the ocean. The oceanfront bike path spans more than 27 miles along the California Coastal Trail—all the way to Malibu! Complimentary cruiser bicycles are always available, and the on-site Dockside Activity Center offers kayaks, paddleboards and more for those looking for ocean adventures. 

The resort’s restaurant is nationally renowned for its light mood and top-notch food. BALEENkitchen and BALEENlounge offer unparalleled marina views complete with firepits, providing a romantic backdrop for playful seasonal menus and out-of-the-box craft cocktails. Like all hotel and resort brands within the Noble House Hotels & Resorts collection, The Portofino Hotel & Marina offers modern amenities and impeccable service for the perfect Southern California getaway.
