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...

One word AMAZING. We had our wedding reception at Shade Hotel Manhattan Beach and could not have been happier with everything; venue, service, food, location. We had an intimate reception for 30, we started on the Zinc terrace for cocktails, then moved to the roof for dinner and some dancing and when we wrapped up everyone went downstairs to the...

The Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach is a boutique property that offers warm hospitality in a highly stylized environment. Excellent location -- minutes from LAX and in the center of quaint "downtown" Manhattan Beach. The hotel's own Zinc Bar and Restaurant is excellent, and a variety of other dining options are within steps of the front door.

The hotel itself is fantastic, and the location can't be beat for Manhattan Beach. Chelsea and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate me and my family while we were there. I usually go there when I'm doing work in the area, but this time I went with the family ( I have 2 young children). Our trip was great...

This Hotel is 5 stars. Fantastic boutique service offering such amenities as a pillow menu. This is our go to spot in LA and recommend to all. You also cannot beat the location of the hotel and the Manhattan Beach area is the best in LA as it is conveniently located to the airport but still further enough away so...

We ended up in Manhatten Beach on a whim and chose this hotel as it was close to everything. The service was great but in the future we would chose self park as it can be done nearby. We had a room that faced the courtyard which was great when we were there as it was quiet but this might...

One of the most romantic places ever! Perfect location, lots of things to do just a walk away... that's if you ever decide to leave this hotel.
