Stayed at the Shade on an overnight. Nice hotel and great service. The room is well appointed and comfortable. Manhattan Beach looks like fun! I walked down main street to the pier and it was full of happy people and tons of restaurants and I even saw young kids skateboarding around with friends after dark like it was the safest place. Looks great to spend a weekend. It was very close to the airport. I had a drink at the Zinc lounge downstairs, good cocktails, friendly helpful bartender. I will come back with my family.
