A Gem of a Hotel
Posted Feb 7, 2017
The Art-Deco inspired Belamar provided me very comfortable, quiet, and clean accommodations for my 4-day, 3-night stay at a location very convenient to LAX and to Redondo Beach, Torrance, and Rancho Palos Verdes. My room was very spacious and nicely furnished. Staff (front desk, valet parking, and maid service) were all friendly and efficient. The really big, and pleasant, surprise for me was the hotel's restaurant, not so much small as intimate. The buffet breakfasts were outstanding, and the dinner menu, though small, ranks as gourmet. My favorite was the horseradish encrusted, baked Chilean sea bass, sitting atop a mushroom risotto, sitting atop roasted sliced beets, and very nicely presented. The wine list was more extensive, and the wait-staff, at breakfast and dinner, were friendly, attentive, and very professional. I was so impressed with the restaurant that I hosted a party of five for dinner on my last night.
