I've stayed here about 8 times over a year. It used to be a better value, but now it's getting a little pricy. It's close to everything you want to be close to in manhattan beach. The bar is fairly upscale and the crowd ranges from young professionals to cougars. Bottom line is if money is no object stay here. If you don't spend much time in your room, it might not be worth the dough. I will say the beds are very comfortable and you get guaranteed entrance into the bar at night which can be pretty hectic on the weekends. If you want to save some $$ stay at the Residence Inn on Sepulveda and cab over early. There are plenty of other nice bars to go to as well as some awesome dive staples of MB.
Shade is great, don't get me wrong. Would I stay again? Of course I would.
Don't forget about the rooftop deck with bar, spa, and pool. Not too shabby.
