Love this hotel for the overall layout, design and atmosphere. We have stated here many times. Great night scene and close to other party areas in Manhatten beach. Go have a fun night with you're partner and enjoy the dancing and music at night

I stayed at Shade on a business trip and it was definitely more unique than most business hotels I stay at. That said, I am a fairly boring business traveler, working very long days, returning late and going to sleep as soon as I'm back to the hotel. If you're a business traveler who enjoys more action at the hotel... More

Loved this hotel. Room was very cool with a big bathtub in the center of the room. Bed was the most comfortable I've slept in. Nice bar and restaurant, great location just a few blocks from the beach. Staff very nice and professional. Will always stay at the Shade when in the area.

Stayed here for 3 nights for a wedding. Don't believe I have ever felt more welcomed in a hotel. The staff was so friendly & couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are plush, the beds are so comfortable, the turn down service every night was a nice touch, the breakfast was delish, & we enjoyed the loan of bicycles... More

The location is perfect. The rooms are modern and nice. The service staff is small but they do an amazing job. We borrowed their bikes, beach toys and chairs all free of charge! A class act from start to finish. I look forward to returning. The complimentary breakfast buffet is great be there are such awesome breakfast places around here... More

We went through Manhattan Beach recently and stayed at the Shade for two days. We can not say enough good things about the property and the staff. Our room was comfortable and modern. The furnishings were unique and very stylish, including a very avant-garde fireplace in our room. We had dinner at the bar on our first night. It was... More

Love the swanky, calm, relaxing mid-century feel of the upscale hotel. With 38 rooms it is truly boutique and allows guests to feel well served and important. Every one from the first contact with the valet upon arrival, to the final contact with the valet upon departure was essentially flawless. The rooms are interesting in their style, although we felt... More

I stayed at Shade on July 30th and 31st 2016. I had high expectations at $500 per night. Manhattan Beach is a great spot and the hotel is in a good, central location. The lobby and courtyard were used for parties on the day I arrived and the first night. Noisy. The room design and layout is modern and attractive.... More

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.
