I've always thought of Portofino as a business / convention hotel.

Will it get any updates related to a certain pair of plumber brothers?

My husband and I are staying there in October this year- we usually stay at RPR. I LOVE the smell of RPR - the lobby in particular. Does portofino have a smell, hopefully as good?

I love Portofino’s lobby scent. I’ve always said if Portofino and Hard Rock could bottle their lobby scents and sell them as colognes, I’d be a customer.

Good to know! I would 100% wear Royal Pacific's scent. I think there are addictive properties in the scents that make us keep coming back.
So, if @Vampyr likes it, it's probably not garlic! :lol::lol:

For those who know Portofino Bay well, are there rooms in the West wing you would suggest trying to ask for? We have a standard 2 queen bay view room booked, just curious if anyone has a room number they have stayed in that has a great view. We want the West wing as it is closest to the boat taxi. We also would rather be higher up than at lower level rooms. If there is a great room that isn't in the West wing, we would obviously consider it.

Try asking for one of the balcony rooms high up. Only a select few have that balcony, I love the view from up there and it makes it a nice experience.

New member, First post so hope this is in the right place.

Is is possible to walk from The Portofino to the nearby Walgreens and 7-Eleven ?
Many Thanks

Stayed at two on-sites so far. Here and Royal Pacific. I don't think I would stay at Portofino again. Great views, great rooms, terrible showers. Going to try an onsite budget room this year, going to stay at Endless Summer Dockside. We shall see, not having an express pass seems odd however
