Torrance Introduction

Hugging the sands and surfer swells of Redondo Beach on its western side, and rolling into the villa-studded bluffs of the Palos Verdes on its south, the city of Torrance makes up a huge cut-out of Los Angeles County. The good-life vibes of the coast are still very much alive between its Bavarian-themed shopping malls and palm-peppered strips, while Torrance hotels also offer a base for exploring multicultural neighborhoods and enticing ethnic eateries.

Hotels in Torrance

There's a host of 2-star inns that offer some of the lowest Torrance hotel rates of all. In those, the name of the game is simplicity and no-frills service, which is great if all you're after is a bed, a bathroom, and a place to stow the car while you head out to surf the waves of Redondo Beach – parking is common throughout. The A-lister vibes of the chic South Bay come through in the more luxury hotels in Torrance. They've got 4 stars, along with haute kaiseki kitchens serving some of LA's top Japanese cuisine, and rooftop cocktail spots overlooking bobbing yachts on the Pacific marinas.

Where to stay

The very heart of Torrance is on Torrance Boulevard. It's the place to go if you're keen to window-shop in chic malls and search for the latest LA beach wear in the boutiques – the sprawling Village Del Amo Fashion Center has the coolest threads going. Being closer to Old Town Torrance – along Sepulveda Boulevard, for example – means having the soy-scented, wasabi-laced sushi kitchens that lead the local culinary scene on the doorstep. And then there are the nearby hotels that dot the edge of Redondo Beach – some chic and cool, others salt-washed for the surfers.

Things to see

Travel in Torrance is about balancing the good-vibes surf life of the South Bay with some of Los Angeles's top shopping and most enticing Asian kitchens. Old Town Torrance hotels put you in the midst of sashimi platters and sushi rolls, Korean hotpot houses and sizzling Canton dim sum holes. If you can escape the ginger-scented haze of those taste-bud-tingling dining walks, then it might help to clear the palate with a bout of Pacific air. Torrance Beach is close to town, but Redondo Beach captures the headlines. A long stretch of glowing sand where surfers twirl on the waves, it's home to happening drinkeries and the deluxe shopping of the Riviera Village mall. Talking of malls, the Del Amo Fashion Center is the closest to most hotels in Torrance. It's laden with Macy's, high-street clothes retailers, Tuscan bistros, and more.

How to get to Torrance

Torrance is hemmed in by the Pacific Coast Highway, the 405 interstate, and the 101. Those 3 major roads make it pretty easy to get to the lobby of most any Torrance hotel, provided you're already in Los Angeles. To arrive in LA itself, it's possible to drive up from cities like San Diego, which takes about 2 hours, or across from the Inland Empire, which takes just over 1 hour. However, a flight into the huge LAX airport is usually more convenient. There are loads of arrivals from all across the US and abroad, and the terminals are less than 20 minutes' drive from Torrance's center.
