This hotel is fab. We LOVED our stay. I recommend it. It is super stylish and the staff were lovely, really helpful, polite. Our room was gorgeous with high ceilings, a jacuzzi, a balcony. The mattress was heavenly. The included breakfast was the best I've ever had, lots of variety. The pool was gorgeous, really relaxing. And the whole area... More

Can't wait to go back! Everything was wonderful. Great location, great service, everyone was so nice. We went for a weekend and it was too short. We rented a car and it was not necessary. Ten minutes from LAX, easy cab ride. You will never want to leave Manhattan Beach. Great weekend trip.

A bit pricey, but if you can splurge, the Shade Hotel is worth it. The location is wonderful, close to everything. The staff is helpful since it's a smaller boutique hotel. You can walk to the beach ( 5 minutes), or just relax in the Jacuzzi in your room with a cocktail. The airport is also a very short drive,... More

My girlfriend and I visited Shade hotel and enjoyed its delicious food, superb service and trendy atmosphere. A big plus was the fact that hotel is close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We would definitely come back! Keep up the good work!

Loved staying here while I visited my daughter who attends college in Los Angeles at LMU. It was the perfect setting to be near the beach and shops and restaurants. The food in the hotel was excellent. The jacuzzi tub with bath salts and light ambiance was excellent touch after a long travel day. I had a room with the... More

We stayed at the Shade, because the wedding we attended, held their dinner there. The food was fantastic. It is a nice couples hotel. Unfortunately, we did not get to experience the pool area because the hotel held many functions through out the weekend. So, it was unavailable. It is not a hotel you would want to take your kids...

Wife and I stayed at the Shade Hotel for four nights in April. Could not have been happier with our stay but let me give you a bit of advice... 1) When you first walk into the hotel you will notice that it is not very big at all and the lobby is a bar/lounge with a small front desk... More

Perfect location and great hotel! Rooms were lovely and loved the big bath in the middle of the room. Breakfast was lovely. Staff friendly and very helpful as my suitcase broke and explained where the best place would be to get a new one and have directions. Excellent for a mini break or stop over as we were flying on...

Service was great, although my wife felt the reception when we got there Monday at 1pm was rough. Certainly the low point I guess. Gus at the bar each morning for breakfast was a wonderful host. This place is very comfortable and perfectly located. I recommend a glass of wine with the bartender from Boston when waiting for dinner. Overall... More
