Very hip, great location, excellent service and a kick butt breakfast, and only 10 minutes to LAX. Also, a very comfy bed. Would definitely stay here again next time i am traveling on business in the LA area.

it's super cool and chic, not too big. Great bar and restaurant. the best bit is the room itself. A huge hot tub in the centre of the room and uber cool bathroom... they have thought of everything and the evening turndown service means you enter your room before going to sleep to soul music and special lighting. I would... More

We stayed here for a night in April and really enjoyed our overall experience. The hotel itself is quite boutique -- the rooms were good. The best part about our room was the tempurpedic beds -- they were so comfortable, I really wanted to get one for our own home. I still cannot stop thinking about how comfortable the bed... More

I recently took my son to the VMAs and wanted to stay somewhere small that felt luxurious. I love the feel of Manhattan Beach, so even though not on the beach, the hotel is well situated on a walking promenade near all of the restaurants and shops. The hotel lobby and the room had that wow factor. Impeccably decorated with... More

I used to live in Manhattan Beach and it has been years since Ive been here. I used to always come to Shade for drinks so it was a no brainer when I needed a hotel here. I am obsessed with the tubs. I must say it is luxurious and relaxing!

I recently spent a couple of nights here in the wonderful Manhattan Beach and, aside from it being a reasonably costly venture ($399/night for a Wed/Thurs), I'd definitely consider a return visit. LOCATION This is what you're paying for. It's right where you want to be, with easy access to the beach and ample shopping/dining within second of the front... More

This hotel in Manhattan Beach was recommended to me by a couple of people. It was a combination of romantic/luxurious/relaxing all in one. My room had a king size bed with a beautiful soaker tub with jets. The service was impeccable. Although the restaurant in the evening had too loud music in my opinion, the food was very good and...

What a perfect location and lovely boutique hotel. Our room was spacious, comfortable, clean and the air conditioning welcomed. Nice jetted. large tub. The only thing that I would have added to the room is a chair that adjust in height to be able to work on the bed long table. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. We found... More

If not for word of mouth I would have never known about this hotel, but it is a must-stay! Clean, contemporary, just blocks from the beach. A lively courtyard outside was the perfect vibe and the bar has an excellent staff and great menu. Just the right mix of casual and elegant.

The location is hard to beat, and the service is great. I don't think the hotel is a great value, but I will return. Complimentary beach cruisers are a great convenience. The rooms are interesting. I am not a fan of the bathtub in the middle of the room, but I am sure some people love that feature.
