History of The Portofino Hotel & Marina in Redondo Beach

Hotel History

The Portofino Inn, as it was originally named, opened in 1962 by racecar enthusiast Mary Davis. This California beach hotel helped spur early interest in Redondo Beach’s King Harbor when it opened three years later. Named for the Italian seacoast town of Portofino and admired for its Mediterranean flavor, the inn drew thousands of visitors for a three-day welcome celebration for the King Harbor opening. The property was a hangout for racers including Peter Revson, an F1 Grand Prix Winner of Revlon family fame, who had a condo there. The Cannonball, a car race from New York to Los Angeles was first run in 1971 with The Portofino Inn as the final destination where competitors had to ring a bell on the check-in desk to signal completion of their race. The movie, Cannonball Run, features scenes filmed at The Portofino. Today, known as one of the finest in California lodging, the resort continues to be a favorite among South Bay residents as well as world travelers.
