Shade Hotel

A luxe boutique hotel with a rooftop pool, ocean views and plenty of California cool

This sparkling property hasn't been solely responsible for the regeneration of Manhattan Beach, but its influence has been huge. It's a small property but perfectly formed: slick yet approachable, stylish yet not without a sense of humor. The 38 guest rooms make great use of the space: Multi-purpose tables can be rolled back and forth over the beds for breakfast or for use as a desk, while all rooms have vast spa-baths, DVD players and color-adjustable chromatherapy lighting. Downstairs is a big central courtyard and the slick Zinc lounge; upstairs is the handsome Skydeck, complete with a bijou pool. If you stay in the penthouse suite, you'll won't need either—it has a beer tap in its kitchenette. An impressive spot indeed.

Neighborhood: Though it’s more upscale than neighboring Hermosa or Venice Beach, Manhattan Beach is still a beach town at heart. On any given Saturday, you’ll spot sand-covered kids trekking up the sidewalk in search of ice cream, surfers unloading their boards by the side of the road and tourists having impromptu photoshoots on the pier.

Nearby:
Manhattan Beach Post: For a boozy brunch and legendary bacon-cheddar biscuits
BrewCo: For its extensive selection of local suds on tap
Manhattan Beach Pier: For peaceful strolls and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean

Time Out tip: After you’ve sated your need for sand and sun, explore the rest of Manhattan Beach’s charming downtown area. High-end chains like Free People and Lorna Jane Activewear sit alongside local bookstores, boutiques and art galleries.

Shade Hotel is absolutely beautiful. Whether you're staying the night here or just here for a night out, you know you're going to have a good time. Head up stairs to their pool or just hang out in the bar area for a drink. They also do a lot of cool events throughout the year.
