Shade Hotel
Ranked #1 of 19 Hotels in Redondo Beach
Reviewed 17 August 2017

We held a Family Reunion in July during which we put up 30 family members from Texas and New Mexico in the beautiful Shade Hotel (we wanted a "beachy", relaxing experience for them). We picked the right hotel, for sure! From booking the rooms with Tina M. the delightful Catering Services Manager to the wonderful treatment we received from every staff member from the valet, to the front desk, to the restaurant, to the housekeeping staff, it was the best hotel experience ever. The rooms are exquisite, and one fun aspect is one can enjoy a bath on the balcony (privacy curtain can be drawn, of course!) I cannot say enough good things about the Shade Hotel, and I highly recommend you book a room there!

Let's start out by saying that after a 10 day stay at the Shade it is an excell hotel, excellent facilities, great hotel and service staff in a great location. The style is very comfortable moders, rooms are spacious and well appointed. it is kind of different to have a bath tub on the patio, makes one careflul when getting in our out in their birthday suit
The down side to the hotel is that it is very much an event hotel. On weekends they will have at least one wedding and several other large gathering events. While the hotel can accommodate this, regular guests can really receive a second class statue. This is especially true in the Restaurant. The hostess desk can very curt and cold if you do not have a reservation and they are booked for event(s). at breakfast we were clearly told what time we had to be finished at vacate our table. At one point there had three 25+ tables served at the same time. from our view they did a great job with the events, it is just we were not part on them, so we felt like we were on the outside looking in.
The roof deck pool has a great view and is a very nice area. The pool itself is not a swimming pool, it is really a soaking or relaxing tub. the water is very warm and not a place to generally cool off. Our 4 year old grandson had a great time there and wanted to return.
While some of my review seems a bit negative, it just reflect the reality of a quality luxury boutique hotel. Perhaps some staff could use a refresher course on Disney hospitality for non event guests, but all and all a very good hotel, We will not hesitate return.

Staff and accommodations are wonderful. Love the location and will definitely stay there again. The restaurant across the walkway is very good, although there is a long wait in the evenings so put your name on the list early.

Clean room, friendly and helpful staff. Friendly and quick valet. Nice basic breakfast included. View is nice of the harbor and the boats. It is not right on the beach but very close. Walkable to several restaurants. They have free bikes to ride.
