Everything is absoutely wonderful at this hotel. It is obvious that the staff is extremely well trained. Everyone is very polished, polite and accomodating. The rooms are very large, very quiet and very comfortable with cool modern lighting. The restaurant is also impressive. The room charges are a bit high for Redondo, but are quite reasonable for what you get. I have stayed at both the Shade Hotel in Redondo Beach and the location in Manhattan. The Redondo location is truly the best in the South Bay!!

After being quarantined since March I decided to get out of the house for my birthday. I was in need of a view of the water perfect pick. I had a ocean/marina view, my room was perfect, I also a rented a rooftop cabana for the day for myself to enjoy with a group of friends. The drinks were great the lunch menu needs more variety, however the service was prompt and the food was delicious. The Marina view from the rooftop was excellent there is a large Jacuzzi only. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

I had a birthday dinner at Shade for my husband’s 50th birthday and was very disappointed in the excessive fees and errors. Despite paying more than $1500 for the event, we were overcharged $40 on our event bill for the taxes. Additionally, We stayed at the hotel only one day and they authorized $1140 on my credit card. $350 before I even arrived then authorized $790 for the stay. For a room rate of $359, the amount held and fees were excessive. We ended up paying a total of 483 for the one night at the room. That included three items from the mini bar that came up to $30.48 because we paid a service charge and tax on each item which were already marked up. Then they charged an amenity fee of $20 despite not using any amenities. There is no pool or gym. Breakfast is not included. There is no concierge or a bell person to help with luggage. I’m pregnant and carried my own luggage to the room after waiting in line. After paying for the room charges, the holds were finally released an entire week after checked out. We felt nickle and dimed. Be sure to check all the fees charged. The only reason I didn’t give Shade 1 star is because the location is close to the beach and the customer service was good for our birthday dinner. The food is also good but for the price point you’re better off stay at Ritz Carlton or a five star hotel. This is more of like a high end motel and the rooms are very tiny

My family and I stayed at Shade Redondo Beach for 5 days and had such a great time! It was our last stop before moving back to Europe. When we had trouble with our flights, it was no problem to extend another night. The entire team was so friendly and caring! The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. We felt that every precaution was taken to prevent the spread of Covid, we even got a package with handsanitizer and masks at check in. We requested a microwave and the sofa bed to be made prior to arrival and everything was set up when we checked in. We enjoyed the great view onto the Marina from our room balcony and were able to spend some time at the pool on the Aquadeck too, which only allows a limited number of guests at a time. We did not utilize the Restaurant during our stay, but have eaten there before and can only recommend the food & service, there is lots of outside seating available right at the water. Overall, I highly recommend staying at Shade Redondo Beach!!!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel just as Corona began and had to cut our stay short. We are back in LA and headed directly back to Shade because it is easily one of the best hotels in the LA area. Great staff (especially Angela) , hopping bar scene, and excellent restaurant , spectacular views and sunsets make this our favorite hotel in LA.
