This is a cool hotel. The rooms are excellent rooms, with a great open solution for design regarding bedrooom and bathroom. THe hotel has a very nice bar area that serves as breakfast, lunch, dinner and evening chill. a favorite hangout whenever really. The hotel is excellent placed close to the Strand. My only alternative when visiting Manhattan Beach.

We spent a night at shade recently for a short getaway and were so impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of all staff as well as the unique design of the hotel. From the time of booking with Jennifer to the time we checked out everything was seamless. We came in late and enjoyed a cocktail in the trendy lounge/bar...

If you're looking for a small boutique hotel with 4 star service...book at Shade. From the minute I arrived to when I (regrettably) departed, the staff and hotel exceeded my expectations. Manhattan Beach is a relaxed beach town that's a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle, see and be seen aspect of LA. And Shade Hotel perfectly reflects the...

Fantastic boutique hotel, trendy but not too trendy. The minute I set foot in the hotel I felt at ease. I hate big American hotels and so far this is the one that I will return to if I find myself in the LA district again. A short walk to the beach, nice shops nearby and a laid back atmosphere,...

Stayed here in October 2011 for two nights. The hotel is a short drive from the airport and a quick walk to Manhattan beach. Everything at the hotel was pleasant. We had a room on the ground floor and didn't have any problems with noise or security. Staff were pleasant and the breakfast nice and healthy!
