Let me start by saying i wanted to stay in the Santa Monica area,but the rates for those chain hotels were too high.So i found Shade which was not that far from SM so i booked it.OMG LET ME JUST TELL YA......FABULOUS!!!!! I was tickled to death w/ my rate at 265 a night which included a comp beach breakfast that was 15 if u did not stay at the hotel.Fresh fruit,bagels and lox,oatmeal,latte,fresh oj,and muffins.Also,comp figi water in your room.The bathtub was to die for along with the bed.Im a huge Westin and W fan and this room,which was a standard room,exceeded my expectations.All the pics on here are exactly how it is.We had a convertiable and we went to SM,Malibu,LA,& Laguna so i was very happy w/ my decision on staying in Man Beach.It was my fav place in Cali.Everything is within walking distance and i loved all the places we dined at.ROCK N FISH,MUCHO ULTIMA,&THE KETTLE.A new sushi place opened that week by the hotel that looked really inviting,but we had sushi in LA.So to sum it up the Shade is great and i would and hopefully will be returning soon.
