Fantastic boutique hotel, trendy but not too trendy. The minute I set foot in the hotel I felt at ease. I hate big American hotels and so far this is the one that I will return to if I find myself in the LA district again. A short walk to the beach, nice shops nearby and a laid back atmosphere,...

Stayed here in October 2011 for two nights. The hotel is a short drive from the airport and a quick walk to Manhattan beach. Everything at the hotel was pleasant. We had a room on the ground floor and didn't have any problems with noise or security. Staff were pleasant and the breakfast nice and healthy!

We got a corner suite. It had a livingroom with a pull out bed and a seperate master with a killer jacuzzi. Unfortunately we had the room next to the maintenance room. So at 4pm we had to squeeze past about 4 housecleaning carts to get to our room. They seem to be there every day at one time or...

Everything was top notch here. And by top notch I mean above and beyond what one would expect from a nice hotel. The service was incredible, the room was pristinely clean and elegantly decorated, the complimentary breakfast super yummy, and the price was reasonable especially given the fantastic service and ambience. If you ever have a chance yo stay here...

When I go to LA on business I always stay at Shade my last night (before heading out of LAX in the morning). Manhattan Beach is a wonderful town with excellent restaurants, and Shade is in the middle of it. Very nice and comfortable rooms with all of the amenities, love the bar in the lobby (well, the bar IS...

Friends of mine who live in So.CA has been taking trips to The Shade for the past three years and I can see why. They invited me to spend a day with them and bike ride along "The Strand" which is a bike path that stretches 22 miles along the ocean. So I got to check out the hotel as...

We had our wedding reception at the Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach CA on June 23 , 2012. The skydeck was the prefect venue for a small intimate wedding reception. The service was impeccable, the food was excellent, the attention to detail was on point, their staff support was so professional that we did not worry about anything at all....
