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! The location is awesome and there are so many good restaurants and bars nearby. The beach is only a few steps away and they have everything there you need (beach chairs, bikes, towels, etc) to...

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.

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

The rooms are absolutely stunning - beautifully presented, everything was new and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food and... More

I stayed at Shade for the first time two weeks ago and it exceeded all of my expectations. From pulling into valet to the moment we checked out, the service and attention to detail was second to none. Free champagne at check in was a nice touch. We didn't eat in the lounge but breakfast was included and was decent.... More

Beautiful hotel. Well maintained. Nick the hotel manager was very accommodating and the housekeeping staff were very attentive. We enjoyed sitting relaxing in the pool and dining on terrace. The food was top notch and served quickly. Well done.
