Default Retail Disc games that require Valve's Steam

I was wondering...I was thinking about getting the standalone disc version of Portal for my father, but he has a crud internet connection. I know you have to install steam, but the game installs from the actual disc, doesn't it (on these games that require Steam)?

Looking at comments on Amazon I was a bit confused at wouldn't make much sense to have to download the game when it could just be on the disc, but I'm just checking to make sure. Does it need an active internet connection to boot? It seems like once the game is installed it shouldn't.
Just can't wait to bomb some Dodongos.
