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.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. Robert at the front desk was so nice and he made my stay so easy. He is the best! They have an amazing spa and by far the most comfortable beds. I am definitely going to come back here. I couldn't believe how nice everyone was.

My sister had a hard time making plans with another venue. She landed on Shade Hotel and I'm so glad she did. A beautiful courtyard for the ceremony, and then a really delicious dinner! Going from the Skyview on the roof for cocktails and entertainment, and then back downstairs for dinner, and then back to the rooftop for the reception...

Right on the beach basically. Walking distance to everything. The service was impeccable. They provided us with chairs, an umbrella, all we needed for the beach at no charge. We will definitely return. This place is just great!

We booked the Shade Hotel for a quick weekend getaway. It was a return visit as we had spent a nice weekend at the hotel about a year ago. How things change! Unfortunately, a number of things revealed wear and tear without investment and a decline in service. There was an odor emanating from the shower drain that created a...

The Shade is really the only walking distance hotel in Manhattan Beach. You do not need a car at all. Hotel is very nice, rooms are great, nice beds. Was also surprised about the restaurant. Very happening place, food and staff are great. Hotel is really a nice change from the cookie cutter corporate chains.

Love this hotel for the overall layout, design and atmosphere. We have stated here many times. Great night scene and close to other party areas in Manhatten beach. Go have a fun night with you're partner and enjoy the dancing and music at night

I stayed at Shade on a business trip and it was definitely more unique than most business hotels I stay at. That said, I am a fairly boring business traveler, working very long days, returning late and going to sleep as soon as I'm back to the hotel. If you're a business traveler who enjoys more action at the hotel...
