A jewel box of a property right in the hub of MB. Rooms are of average size but are nicely anointed. Beds are super comfy. The large soaking tub is a waste. Takes too long to fill and doesn't hold water. You are just steps away from restaurants and shops and blocks away from the beach. The hotel offers a complimentary continental breakfast daily. You can order off of the ala carte menu if you wish. The hotel restaurant Zinc serves up some nice dishes. Standout apps at happy hour were the spicy tuna on crispy rice, mini carnitas tacos, and the quesadilla. Two stellar entrees were the hanger stake and the paella. Gustavo is a really a cordial server. The hotel service is minimal but astute. From the valet to the front desk, everyone was helpful and cordial. Weekday AAA was $269.00 while the weekend rate was $299.00. I have booked a 11 day stay for work and am looking forward to it! Our two pups were accepted for $125.00 pet fee.

Room Tip: Only two floors, so any room.

Thank you Brian for staying with us and taking the time to provide your feedback. Chef has been doing a lot of work on our menu and I'm glad to see the results are noticed. I will make sure that Gustavo receives your compliments and I'm glad to hear our service was well executed.

As I've mentioned in some other reviews, we are working on a solution for the tub fill and hopefully we can find a way to make that work better for our guests.

Thanks again and look forward to seeing you soon.

Best Regards,

Jeffery

Due to forest fires at a planned destination, we scrambled for a room near LAX before a morning flight next day. We were rewarded. Shade is a sizable, well-appointed hotel with all the main amenities you will need, at reasonable prices. Rooms are sleek, smart, and clean. Situated near the main strip and up the hill form the massive and beautiful beach, Shade brings luxury to a great destination near the airport. Great bar for catching a drink when other area bars are too crowded.

Location of this boutique hotel is perfectly situated to walk to Manhattan Beach. Excellent service, cleanliness, amenities offered. Loved having bikes and beach chairs available to us every day. Open air Zinc restaurant/bar is also excellent food and service. Chelsea and Peter stood out at the front desk and someone is always there to assist you. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be back.

We stayed at the shade Hotel for 4 nights, and it was one of the best experiences we've ever had. The facilities were great. The hotel design, so open with the SoCal breeze was so relaxing. The staff was so accomodating and friendly, it was very obvious that they clearly enjoyed what they were doing and loved working together. From the front desk (Cecelia) to the bartender (Johnny) they really made us feel at home. By the end of our stay I wanted to work there too...Our day started with a great breakfast on the terrace, then a bike ride on the Strand (cruisers supplied by the Hotel) we had such a good time we rode all the way to Santa Monica. Then we got back and switched the bikes for beach chairs/towels supplied by the hotel and went down to the beach and rode the waves - only to return in time for the Shade Hour at the bar - 4 days of that and we never wanted to leave....We will be back - as soon as possible

I had the opportunity to visit Shade in Manhattan Beach this week. Matt Helbig, Cece and Chelsea were phenomenal and went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable and memorable.

Thank you Shade team,
