My boyfriend and I recently returned from a three night stay at Shade. What a gem in this beautiful location. He was there for business and I was tagging along. It's in a great location within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, bars, shops.... perfect. The rooms are swanky with cool lighting and very nice finishes. I want to recreate the bathroom area in my home. The staff at this place is excellent! Bartenders, servers and front desk folks. Everyone was helpful with recommendations for where to eat, making reservations, and just asking you about your day. A special thank you to Joseph for giving us the extra bit of attention on many occasions! One day we spent up on the Sky Deck and we were the only ones there. It is really a relaxing oasis. We were served our lunch and drinks up there, which was great. We ate at MB Post (go- it's amazing!) and also walked the Strand to Hermosa Beach and ate at Mediterraneo. This is a great spot for Happy Hour. The walk down the Strand took us about a half hour but was fun to see all the beautiful beach-side houses and people out and about. A must-stop is Manhattan Beach Cremery. Tons of sweets if that's your thing- cupcakes like I've never seen before and ice cream. The line gets pretty long. We headed into West Hollywood for the weekend, but really enjoyed the casual charm of this lovely community as well as the hospitality of this unique boutique hotel. We hope to return.
