We LOVE Shade! We go often and just when you think it can't get any better it does. Attention to detail is always on point. It's everything you would imagine it to be and so much more. The staff always goes above and beyond to make sure you have a 5star experience. Thank you Shade for a wonderful weekend.

This little hotel has a lot going on. Great food, great bar, great sun deck. Locals seem to love hanging out there which says a lot. (hip locals, not the local "characters") Great shopping and dining nearby.

Shade Botique hotel. Great people. Great attitude. 2 blocks from the pier. On Tuesdays, there is a farmer's street market next door. Big. Great hang out. A good place for a meeting and only 5 miles south of LAX. Big time breakfast included, salmon and all. Only about 30 rooms. Mine had a big tub in the middle of it.... More

Our first visit to Manhattan Beach visiting relatives, and the Shade Hotel was recommended as the best place to stay. We walked everywhere, did some Christmas shopping at several of the shops, ate at lots of restaurants including Zinc in the hotel. All in all it was a very relaxing 6 days at Shade. The breakfast buffet was perfect for... More

Second visit in a couple of years. Excellent service, friendly, accommodating and efficient. Great location 2 blocks to the beach and walking distance to everything. Bar area is buzzing at night. Rooms are well equipped, beds are great. If anything, the room decor looks a little 90's, but it's still funky / boutique in feel, and clean / well maintained.... More

We stayed four nights at Shade hotel in Dec 2015. We had seen all the great reviews and had high expectations - also because of the price tag! It was a bit of a disappointment though when we checked in. The rooms are really nice and lovely jacuzzi in the room. But the rest of the facility is not worth... More

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed. The staff was superb from the front desk to the bar staff to the restaurant . Great room, would recommend this boutique hotel. They know how to take care of their guest. From the valet, to everyone else, they do a great job

Perfectly located close to beaches, nice bar area and very friendly staff. I had a big upgrade to a suite but besides the size of the room I have to say that I was a bit disappointed by the state the room was in. The wood (doorframes, tables etc.) was a bit scratched, the marble in the bathroom was very... More

Shade is the perfect boutique hotel -- a gorgeous, vibrant hideaway that makes you feel like a rockstar evading the paparazzi, protected by a doting staff of hospitality experts who simply lack the word "no" in their vocabulary. As a Boston-based lawyer who has found himself often joyfully litigating in Southern California, Shade has become my Manhattan Beach home. From... More

I wanted to stay somewhere local and treat my daughter with a 'stay-cation' for her 15th birthday, so we decided to stay at Shade in Manhattan Beach so her and some friends could hang out in Manhattan Beach. I booked my reservation with Ken, who was so polite and friendly! I told him my situation, we were celebrating my daughter's... More
