I have stayed at Shade Manhattan Beach a few times now as a local for a staycation. This last weekend, my boyfriend and I stayed in room 222 which was by all means just as lovely as the last times. The spa tub (there is one in every room) was slightly broken though. There were jets that were not working, and the chromatherapy light in the tub was broken too. I figured I would just mention it upon checkout as it was not that huge a deal, but I would have expected a bit more in terms of maybe waiving a night of parking ($15) or something, an apology even? We received a "thank you for letting us know" and we went on our way after 2 nights. All in all the hotel is amazing, wonderful walkable area for shops and restaurants and the above will not keep us from going back. Just hoping that when a couple comes to the hotel, with obviously the spa bath in mind, it might be worth more to acknowledge and try to offer them something to leave a better lasting impression (especially for the $800 plus we paid for 2 nights).

I had an incredible stay at the Shade Hotel. The hospitality was amazing even amid COVID, everyone was very helpful and friendly. The hotel restaurant was open outdoors and was a very welcoming relaxing environment to spend time at. The penthouse room was perfect, very spacious, had a fun mini beer on tap in the room, great Jacuzzi-like bathtub and huge shower with comfy bathrobes. The room service food was delicious, probably the best avocado toast and French toast I’ve ever had. Definitely coming back!

Hello Storey, Thank you for choosing us to stay. I appreciate your time to share your experience and writing such nice review. I am delighted to hear you had an incredible stay and that you enjoyed your meal from our restaurant zinc@shade. Our genuine and caring team is working hard to ensure all of guests have a safe and comfortable visit; and I agree with you, the beer on tap and the over sized Jacuzzi are my favorite part of the penthouse suite. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon and make it another great experience.

In December, I booked three rooms online at the hotel. Because I did not receive confirmations through their online booking service (the hotel system just kind of stalled), I called the hotel to ensure I had booked the proper number of rooms. I actually called several times before reaching someone who could help-but we had a lengthy conversation and my three-room reservation was confirmed. When we arrived at the hotel, they had six rooms reserved for us. The check-in person acknowledged the error and we thought that was the end of it. However, they have since charged us for all six rooms and refused to take off the extra charges of about $1500. I called multiple times to address this issue unsuccessfully-people said they would call back and never did. Very disappointing particularly since I actually was there paying for three expensive rooms and it was their error.

I would love the opportunity to connect with you and clarify all. Feel free to contact me at the Hotel at 310.546.4995. Much appreciated.

We love shade. Just did an overnight staycation. It’s hip. Trendy. And great location for walking to restaurants and bars. In the day they have bikes you can check out and go for a ride on the strand. Ask for a quiet room. Have fun. @nickellfamilytravel

This review is for Reina and the other Front Desk attendant (I forgot her name). They both went above and beyond to ensure our arrival and stay at Shade were amazing and beyond expectations. They both warmly greeted us at the front desk, showed us to our rooms and made every touch point with staff an absolute dream. They are marvelous embassy’s of the hotel and a wonderful highlight to our stay in Los Angeles. Please do yourself a favor and stay here, if not for the location and the comfy accommodations, but for the warm and inviting staff like Reina!
