A warm welcome by valet parking and ever present porters. Easy check in and great funky rooms with the giant spa baths. Most rooms are around the internal courtyard which comes alive for functions and special occasions or just big nights for the locals. Situated on the edge of the Manhattan Beach shopping strip and an easy walk to the...

As the great Cole Porter once wrote, "It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely!" And this is how my stay at Shade Manhattan went. My colleagues and I stayed two days ago and each of us got their own rooms. Although the stay was for only a night, I was absolutely impressed. Stating that the hotel is gorgeous would be a...

So I stay at Shade about every 6 months to visit a local relative. I've always enjoyed this hotel--it was like a little oasis and so close to all things MB. But, both times in 2016, I was put into what seemed a "lesser" room (no fireplace) on the first floor, parking lot view, close to the open atrium. When...

We had a great dinner at Shade Hotel the other night, it was most excellent! We are locals so I have been going there for years. I used to stay at the hotel before I moved here 8 years ago, and have always loved this place, it's truly a local (and destination) gem. I eat breakfast and brunch there a...

Staff is extremely nice and the bar area is great. Food is really good at Zinc. Met the owner at the bar and his humble nature just impressed me. They take everything seriously here. I will keep coming back.

My husband and I love shade and have stayed there several times. The ambience is modern sophisticated and fun. There is a hot tub in the room and fun lighting that you can change the color. The bar makes amazing martinis served in an martini glass made of ice. We stayed for New Year's Eve and they had a fun...

Courtyard and lounge/restaurant take advantage of the location's open-air benefits, and the room was surprisingly large with a really great soaking tub (complete with optional jets and lighting effects). Surprisingly comfortable, sensual, romantic, and fun hotel!

This is the best place in Manhattan Beach, CA. Friendly and helpful staff, specially Elke (valet) and Rodolfo (housekeeping manager). The rooms are nice, the beds are extremely comfortable. The location is perfect! Close to the beach, to restaurants and shops. You can use Equinox Gym (the best fitness center) for free. The restaurant and bar are great. I will...

I like everything about this hotel -- the vibe, the bar, the rooms, the location. Lots of outstanding restaurants nearby and outstanding service. The rooms are beautiful with excellent amenities and a cool but comfortable feel. I always feel relaxed at Shade, which is a good thing after dealing with the crazy LA traffic.
