First people are just walking checking in or out with or without masks and the staff does not ask anyone to wear any masks , we had a room for the third time here because it used to be our little break from Redondo Beach ..To be fair the bath tube outside does not offer any cover to protect you from the people in the boats so you need to be wearing something getting in and out of the bath tube ..The edge are really sharp too. Around 11.30 pm on a tuesday night we could hear ( we were room 210 ) kids running non stop above us ,we were in bed had to wake up at 6 am for work ,then the room next to us went on a really loud party ..Called security ( the guy is cool) but noise was still there .The phone in our room was not working so we left the hotel around midnight,the security was cool and offered us an other room but we were not going to move again at midnight.For over $400 a night they did a really CHEAP job on the wall and ceillings and sound proof ..You can hear people walking fast above you at night,,

I used to drive by this contemporary boutique hotel every day on my way to work when I lived down the road in Redondo Beach... Never once occurred to me I might stay there someday. Then I moved away and had to take a trip back to the area for some work. I wanted to stay somewhere close to El Segundo, as that’s where I had some work to do, and close to Redondo Beach, our former home. Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach was perfectly located for that! They’re right in the heart of town, just a short walk from the pier and the beach. Only ended up having to go to the office in El Segundo once, which is great because it meant more time here! I’ve stayed in dozens of hotels, good ones and... um... not-so-good ones... Shade was MORE than just one of the good ones. Few hotels I’ve stayed in come close to matching the hospitality we experienced here. The service was above-and-beyond friendly. FREE bike rentals for guests. Credits to get food or drinks at the excellent restaurant and bar. Very nice rooms with a big hot tub that has chromatherapy lighting. Pseudoscience or not, it’s just cool. Definitely enjoyed our time here, happy to have chosen it, and would not hesitate to return.

This review is for hosting events here. Do not host your wedding here. We were scheduled to have a 200 person wedding in October and placed a deposit for $15,000. Unfortunately with Covid, Shade Hotel wasnt able to host the wedding. They refused to give us our deposit back. They were willing to host a luncheon in the upper deck for 20-50 people and wanted to charge us the $15,000 deposit. We could not bare to spend that much money for a simple luncheon, no live music, no dancing, no socializing. We requested to host smaller dinner and appropriately price the celebration but they were not willing to negotiate and demanded we spend the whole deposit or we loose it. The only compensation they are willing to give us is credit for their hotel for $15000.00 which is ridiculous. We spoke multiple times to their managers including Melissa and she said we should be happy we are not obligated to pay the full amount of $52,000. It saddens me that businesses like this who are supposed to support couples and marriages are not willing to work with us and refusing to give our deposit back. Furthermore, we reserved a room block for 20 rooms for the wedding. They are giving me a hard time for the deposit I placed and are telling me it is not negotiable despite Shade hotel not being able to host our event. Look elsewhere for your wedding and save the disappointment with these thieves.

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.
