The Portofino Hotel & Marina has initiated an effort to improve our environmental performance in all aspects of operations. We’re committed to preserving our location’s beauty and conserving our natural setting. Here are some of the things we’re doing to make sure it stays that way: 

Our guestrooms predominantly use fluorescent bulbs and have motion sensors that turn off lights to save energy. 

Hotel room televisions use energy efficient LCD and LED backlighting.

Sensors in the room will turn on and off the air conditioning unit if a door or window is opened (on when you enter, off when you leave). Our sophisticated air conditioning system also senses when there is more than one person in the room to provide additional cooling. 

Our ultra-low flush toilets use less than half the water as a regular toilet. 

Our room keys are made with special biodegradable stock instead of regular PVC. Recycled paper is used for all printed materials when possible. 

BALEENkitchen uses local products and fresh, seasonal produce whenever possible.

We use green practices when caring for the restaurant and hotel grounds by fostering a friendly habitat for native flora and fauna. 

Safer cleaning products is very important. We have shifted to more cleaning products that are made with bio-based oils and other natural cleaners. 

Our custom-formulated bath amenities are not individually packaged. By using larger bottles, we are able to cut down on the amount of plastic we use. 

Additionally, The Portofino’s complimentary beach cruiser bikes make it easier to leave the car at home. Explore Redondo Beach and reduce vehicle emissions. Thank you for helping us reduce, reuse, and recycle. Enjoy your stay!
