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....

To call Shade a home away from home would be the understatement of the century. I’ve been traveling to and from Southern California for business the past six years, with 30+ stops at Shade. The staff for both the hotel and their restaurant/lounge (Zinc) have been my second family since I started my travels. I’ll be away from the hotel...

I have lived in southern California for a couple years now and after a while it starts to wear on you. I was tipped to Shade Hotel by a couple friends and decided to make it the destination in which I would plan my romantic evening away. From the time I picked up the phone to schedule the reservation I...

Absolutely loved this hotel. The staff were amazing and very friendly. Nothing was too hard for them. The room as to die for. The bed was super comfortable and the pillows....OMG I want them on my bed! Breakfast and dinner was fab and the location was perfect.

I have been all over the world and stayed in many hotels from 1 star to 5. The Shade was the best so far. Staff attention to detail, rocket fast room service, extras we didn't expect and without the hotel chain b/s. Where else can you find Egyptian sheets on a Temperpedic bed ? We really loved our stay and...

This place resets the term "Getaway". My wife and I come here occasionally for a sexy weekend getaway. We live in Culver City, less than half an hour's drive from this hotel, but it feels like the other end of the planet. Shade is a "remodeled" old-school motel format building, but it is SO well done that you will never...

I stayed at Shade for only one night and I enjoyed it very much. As a young woman, I enjoyed being able to walk to the nightlife and many bars with friends and make our way back for a night cap at the hotel bar before bed. Great and friendly staff with comfortable accommodations. The room was lush with comfortable...

I stayed at Shade for 3 nights for business. The hotel was having its first annual beer fest when I arrived and for being a guest, I received complementary tickets. The event was only 3 hours and was totally cleaned up by the evening. The staff was fantastic, the rooms were pure chic and unique with the sliding doors and...
