I want to give SHADE an A++++....I have had several great experiences! Shade is a very hip boutique hotel, a few blocks off the beach in Manhattan Beach....possibly the best location in town, and next door to great restaurants and shopping. One of the great things about SHADE...you not only get "hip", but you also get great service...which is not always the case with hip hotels with attitude. I have stayed at SHADE three times now, and each one has been a great experience. #1 check -in help, bellman, maid service, et al...all are great. #2 The rooms: , maybe not the biggest hotel rooms in the world, but meticulously designed, clean, chic, and VERY comfortable beds - it's like staying in a little designer home away from home. I have stayed in their normal rooms which I think are just great.....if you like a very stylish, hip, yet comfortable room, you'll love them. I was lucky enough to get the Penthouse Suite on my last visit...it was just great!!! **Bar with a working beer tap, flat screen above the bar, a den, bedroom...big bath and shower....if you can splurge, do....you'll love it. #3 The Bar - ok, probably one of the hippest in town...kind of like a "W" lobby bar, beautiful scene, beautiful people....yet the noise is chill and the bar does not interupt your stay, great for couples, great for singles, great to just get a drink and chill (you just happen to get the bonus of being surrounded by beautiful, yet relaxed people. #4 Food....I didn't eat dinner there, but had breakfast and lunch...all outstanding....a great mix where style meets function and flavor...I highly recommend the food as well. So.....I travel the world, and I can say I fell in love with Shade, great place, great people, great service....all for a good price. If you are a business traveler, a couple for a getaway or vacation, or a single looking to enjoy Manhattan Beach...in each scenario, you will absolutely think you picked the best hotel in town! **Tell them I said hi.....you'll feel hip, but also you'll feel "known and appreciated"..... Safe and fun travels....Frank
