My boyfriend and I decided to do a little staycation and spoil ourselves over Memorial Day weekend, as we weren't able to escape LA for the weekend. This place couldn't have been more perfect!

Location: literally right in the heart of Manhattan Beach, you can walk everywhere, just 2 blocks from the beach and the mb pier, nightlife, and some of the best restaurants South Bay has to offer. This is truly a locals spot, so you will get a decent amount of people out dining, and shopping, but the vibe is much more relaxed and less touristy, which I love.

The hotel: small boutique hotel, only 3-4 floors and a handful of rooms 30+? It is truly a quiet little escape. There is a rooftop pool which is more for dipping and laying out than swimming, there is a large bar and restaurant with outdoor firepits and a courtyard, and you get access to Equniox next door as part of your stay.

The room: where do I start? It's just oozing with romance! The second you turn on the switch in the room it lights up a mini fire in the corner. There is a huge tub with jets in the middle and bath salts. The shower is in a separate room and very spacious, we also had a balcony overlooking the shops and restaurants in the complex.

Except for the excellent happy hour downstairs (we had 4 drinks each and 3 plates and it was only $80!) between the tub, the mini bar, the fireplace, the memory foam mattress and the unlimited movie selection, we rarely left our room. It was just what we needed! Thank you Shade!

Literally 3 blocks away from the beach! Everything was walking distance, restaurants, bars, beach! Hotel offers bikes which turned or great to get to know the whole area. Bed was super comfy, customer service was great, GF loved the cake pops in the room. Would definitely go back next time I'm in manhattan beach area!

Hands down one of the best places to stay in Manhattan Beach! Right when we walked in, we were greeted with a glass of champagne and smiles. We checked right into our room which had a MASSIVE tub exposed to the room with a balcony that looks over the restaurants and shops. From 3 - 6PM they have happy hour (#shadehour) which had 50% apps and drinks! Can't go wrong there! We felt like we were staying at a 5 star resort with a local vibe. We woke up the night morning (the beds are to DIE for), and walked downstairs to our free breakfast. Everyone was so nice and welcoming we didn't want to leave!

I loved the decor and ambiance of this hotel. My fiancé and I celebrated our recent engagement here and the room was perfect. We loved the view from our room and the location for walking around. The staff were incredibly helpful and kind too. 5 stars!

This is a great place to relax after sunning all afternoon and before you head out for a fun evening. I know, it's a rough life. Great little food bites and the best cocktails made by a great kitchen and bar staff. Everyone here was so fun and friendly. Definitely recommend
