I stayed at Shade for only one night and I enjoyed it very much. As a young woman, I enjoyed being able to walk to the nightlife and many bars with friends and make our way back for a night cap at the hotel bar before bed. Great and friendly staff with comfortable accommodations. The room was lush with comfortable...

I stayed at Shade for 3 nights for business. The hotel was having its first annual beer fest when I arrived and for being a guest, I received complementary tickets. The event was only 3 hours and was totally cleaned up by the evening. The staff was fantastic, the rooms were pure chic and unique with the sliding doors and...

Sublime bedding (I loved the bed and the pillows -- my husband hated the pillows), great location, good service, nice continental breakfast, yummy little cupcakes in the evening, brought to the room. Shade looks just like the photographs. Could use a comfortable reading chair, rooftop deck looks better in the photos, and a few problems with the drain on the...

Top notch staff. Fantastic, central location. Easy stroll to all the excellent restaurants, bars and shopping in downtown Manhattan Beach. Rooms are impressive with upgraded temperpedic beds/pillows and separate hot tub style tub and shower. The bathroom area closes off with screens which gives the room a japanese kind of feel. 24 hour room service available and 10 minutes from...

Super friendly service (front desk and bar) to make you feel at home, great tucked away location close to the beach, shops and restaurants, wonderful breakfast included which you can help yourself to and enjoy out on the sunny terrace. And all so close to LAX. Never staying at another LA airport hotel again.

Stayed here for two nights in February for business and was very happy with the service and comfort of the Shade Hotel. Rooms are a good size, the bed & pillows are all temperpudeic (which was a first for me, but ended up being quite comfortable) and the staff was very friendly and courteous. Close by to all the shops,...
