Manhattan Beach is synonymous with casual California beach culture. With a rich history of surfing, beach volleyball, Strand bicycle cruising and plain old sun-worshipping, it has always been an exclusive spot to relax and unwind. In the last decade, development has inspired a coastal renaissance. Manhattan Beach has become the place to dine, shop, and now sleep in style. Presenting Shade - your coastal oasis at one of California's premier beach communities. Whether you're staying in Manhattan Beach for work or play, whether you choose to absorb the energy of the beach or lounge by our dipping pool, enjoy a cocktail in the Zinc Lounge or luxuriate in your private Sanijet™ spa tub, Shade is your place. Cool.

Please keep in mind that Shade is capable of anything from a big traditional wedding to a smaller more intimate cocktail affair. What makes us different is that we make sure that every client has an event that is tailored to them. We can truly do almost anything here at Shade, including unique menus created specially for you.

Shade Hotel was stunning, fabulous, accommodating, and everything I had hoped for on our wedding day. The event planner, Jolene, is sweet and organized and helped through every step of the process. Every single person that we worked with at Shade, including the bartenders, dinner captain, servers, valets, and desk staff were all enthusiastic and helpful. The chef even made a customized menu to accommodate my food allergies. Everyone was so professional in their ability to put on a big event, while still allowing us to individualize our experience. My family and friends are still talking about their great weekend at Shade, and it will forever be a special place for my husband and I!

I honestly had a perfect wedding.... PERFECT!!! Team Shade (Jolise, Alyssa, and every Shade employee including the housekeeping) was amazing. My husband and I, and all of our guests, can't stop talking about what a wonderful weekend we had at The Shade. The level of service you find at the shade is 5 star. We felt like royalty. Jolise Vought is nothing short of amazing. When we had to go back home to Chicago after the wedding we felt like we were losing a best friend! Jolise and Shade have such strong relationships with all of my vendors that I can honestly tell you everything went off without a hitch and it was the most magical experience of my entire life. Shade made everything so easy and elegant- it was incredibly beautiful, and I wish I could do it all over again. If anyone is looking for a trendy, posh, modern and elegant event the Shade hotel and their amazing people are where it's at. Oh, and the FOOD- was OUTSTANDING.

We had our lovely and intimate wedding at Shade in September 2012. We were married on the Skydeck and held our reception in the same place.

Jolise (Dir of Events) is fabulous! She was on top of everything that day and really had everything running smoothly! Megan (Hotel Manager) was also an incredible help the day of my wedding. The staff was great as well, very professional, on top of everything, but discreet.

The food was fantastic! We had a plated sit down dinner. Really great chef there! We had a couple of hiccups with a kid's meal and the desert, but only I and the Jolise noted it! Everything ran smooth and I am so happy to have chosen this hotel as our venue. Worth every penny!

Booking Shade was the best decision we made for our wedding. True, it's not cheap, but you really get what you pay for. The staff was incredible. Always quick to respond to my (many, many) emails during the planning process and on the day of I was so impressed. They took care of everything, I didn't have to worry about a thing. If there were problems I didn't know about them, everything ran smoothly and several of my guests commented on how nice everyone was. Plus, the courtyard was beautiful. Simple and modern decor and the bar/dance floor area was great because you could get a drink and still be involved with the party. The food was also fantastic, especially the appetizers during cocktail hour (my only regret was I didn't eat more of them!). Overall, Shade made our wedding day amazing and I encourage anyone who likes the look/feel of the space to book it, you won't regret it.

My wedding day was the best day of my life. Yes... for obvious reasons. I married a wonderful man and our friends and family were there to share in our special day with us. But it was also the staff at Shade that made the wedding AMAZING. And without them, our unforgettable day would NOT have been possible. From the first day we walked in to speak with Jolise (special events manager) about having our wedding there, we were treated with professionalism, kindness and respect. And for the next six months, it was more of the same from each and every staff member that is employed by Shade. And when our friends and family arrived to stay in the hotel for the wedding, they could not stop raving about the comfortable rooms, the amazing food and, of course, the staff. In fact, when my dad gave his speech during the wedding, he took a moment to recognize every person who worked for the hotel. And he's stayed at A LOT of hotels--around the world. And so have I. So for me to take the time to write this review means something. And to all of you brides out there who want to know you will be taken care of and things will turn out exactly as you hoped, you can rest assured that you will be well taken care of at Shade. Not to mention, the hotel is so gorgeous you need hardly any flowers, draping or lanterns or whatever you choose to use.

We also had our rehearsal dinner at Shade. We were supposed to have it on the gorgeous rooftop. But unfortunately, it rained (not on the wedding day though!). The staff was quick to make another arrangement and we moved our dinner to the front patio (equally as gorgeous). What I especially love about Jolise and everyone who works there is everyone is unflappable. Their calmness and positive attitudes are contagious. I always felt confident that everything would turn out okay. And as a bride, there is no better feeling that not having to worry--about anything.

Check out Shade's website and my attached photos. Shade is a hidden gem. It's rated #1 out of #8 hotels for a reason. It's a gorgeous and incredibly chic boutique hotel (only four years old) and surrounded by shops, restaurants and spas- all within walking distance. It's also incredibly close to the ocean--just a short walk. (We took some of our wedding pictures down there--which I also highly recommend!) The bridal suite where I stayed has a FABULOUS view of the beach town and of the ocean. And on the morning of your wedding, there will be no better feeling than to walk out on the balcony, breathe in the ocean air and smile.
