This was my first experience at a non-chain hotel. Wow, very nice. Workers there were very courteous and friendly. Room was very nice and romantic. Location was amazing. There is a public parking lot under the hotel where you can leave your vehicle overnight for a fairly cheap price. Walk to the shops/beach. They have free breakfast and bikes!! We will be back. Thanks

We spent a leisure weekend there in-between a business trip. Great break which filled up the batteries. Just entering the reception area felt like dipping into a holiday.
Nice rooms to stay in but when spending a sunny weekend at Manhattan Beach anyways staying in the room should not be an option (even though WiFi works very well, bed is super comfy and bathroom awaits with walk-in shower and huge whirlpool). The beach is just a few blocks away, perfect location for sunrise workout on the beach. Watching the waves and surfers - amazing. Delicious breakfast, food and cocktails @zinc! Pretty neighborhood with some boutiques, nice restaurants and awesome Spa (Trilogy) and Nails (Zenka Luxe) next by. Staff in all departments is just amazing, but important to mention here are Chelsea and Dakota. You made the stay unforgettable and one main reason to come back! Thank you ever so much!

Came for happy hour on a Friday night, what a wonderful experience. They offer a drink of the day, but as we were early the choice wasn't made yet, so we ask for one with Vodka, which was designed for us and it was excellent. Service was great, ordered crispy calamari for appetizers which was excellent. Would differently go again...

We have stayed at the Shade Hotel several times in the past but most recently for 4 nights with our girls. They were so helpful in getting us a last-minute rental car (it was delivered within the hour and returned 3 days later without us talking to Enterprise), running out to get saline we forgot to pack, and storing some surprise Easter baskets for the girls until Easter morning.

The bar and dining staff are equally accommodating, creating incentive fruity drinks for the kids, cooking up two grilled cheeses after the kitchen closed because our flight was delayed and always encouraging us to take a few bottles of cold water for the road. They couldn't have been nicer. I would definitely recommend friends and families stay here!
