We have stayed at the Shade numerous times over the last several years. Enjoy the close proximity to stores and other activites. The staff has always been very friendly and made us feel welcome. The rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable. The food and bar service is excellent. We will be coming back again soon!

I hosted a 3 day business meeting at Shade this week. We loved the service, rooms, location, and meeting facilities. We took advantage of the rooftop terrace, zinc lounge, and blue room for business meeting. The hotel is close to great restaurants, shops, the pier, and the beach so once here you don't have to drive. This is the third...

We were recently visiting family in the South Bay, down from San Francisco. We try and stay at the Shade when we get down South. We give it a five thumbs up! The location is only 15 minutes from LAX, then you enter the Oasis of Manhattan Beach far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Park the...

I stayed at the Shade when in LA on business. The rooms are perfect, the food superb and the service 5 star. The breakfast buffet was a huge plus...allowing me to have a great breakfast without interfering with my 10 hours of meetings. One of the finest experiences I've had in the US.

I have nothing but great things to say about this Hotel, the Staff and Zinc Lounge. I have been here multiple times for many reasons and have always had very friendly, prompt, and thorough service. When I held workshops for my business there in the green room they thought of everything for me. They had everything set up on time,...

Shade is an easy ride from LAX and positioned near to great shops, the beach, restaurants and cafes. The hotel staff were delightful and very willing to assist with any request, rooms very comfortable and bed was great. Breakfast was included or an a la carte available. We found the Valet parking at $20 per night good value compared to...
