The front desk team are truly exceptional. From the gentlemen who checked us in at 1am to the day staff. Everyone went above and beyond. Thank you so much! And the location is equally memorable. Manhattan Beach is one of the best neighbourhoods in the US, if not the world. Humble, beautiful and brilliant beaches. Can't wait to return.

What an amazing hotel. Web site needs a major revamp as it does nothing to display what a fabulous choice of hotel if staying in Manhattan Beach. My heartfelt thanks to Chelsea, Jenny and Cecelia whose front desk help went way above and beyond, they all deserve a huge pay rise! The room was fantastic, large, very well appointed and... More

I love this hotel. It's my 6th or 7th stay. Best location- walk to everything. Stunning rooms, great staff- comfortable bed. I never leave without booking a future stay. Chelsea at the desk is adorable! The restaurant is yummy and the bar scene is fun. It's located in a little plaza that is very European. I cannot wait for my... More

My friends and I sat out on the terrace at Shade and had a really nice lunch. I had the Zinc Chopped Salad with salmon and it was wonderful. My friends had the Thai Cold-Noodle and they loved it. We had the house chardonnay and it was a good pour. Sitting on the terrace is a fun place to relax... More

This place is amazing! Everyone that works there is super friendly and goes out of the way to make sure you are enjoying your stay!

Nicely located in Manhattan Beach , just a few blocks from the beach. Walking down to the beach is easy , back up the hill a bit more difficult. Modern hotel with large rooms and bathrooms with bath tub and seperate shower. Extremely good bed. Free water and cake pop next to the bed every evening. Excellent staff and valet.... More

Pleasantly impressed by the quality of the hotel including size and cleanliness of the room. Walking distance to the beach as well as many of the great restaurants Manhattan Beach has to offer. I would highly recommend this hotel to business travelers and couples but suggest you leave the kids at home.

We stayed here for a wedding for 3 nights. Its a wonderful funky place. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable - open bath floor plan -ingenious. But the real show stopper is the staff. Incredible service - not so much as a mention of "no" -it was always "of course we can." Stay on the first floor for convenience but... More

I stayed at the Shade on a recent visit to Manhattan Beach and I can't speak highly enough of the hotel. Awesome location - right in the heart of Manhattan beach - a short walk to the ocean. The rooms are absolutely stunning - beautifully presented, everything was new and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food and... More
