- Shade HotelFirst to ReviewAug 07, 2012
The folks at Shade Hotel know how to make anything fun. Situated a few blocks from the quaint piers and surfer-friendly sands of Los Angeles’ Manhattan Beach, the Shade’s retro-chic ambiance is tucked into a convergence of stylish boutique shops and café-laden corners. Straying from the footpath of the usual LA visitor, the Manhattan Beach district (splendid name) is well worth stopping by and staying a night or two.
Laid back in its own particular brand of Southern California relaxed, friendly, chic, the Shade Hotel fits perfectly into its surroundings, while simultaneously elevating it to a more contemporary, edgy experience. The rooms, for example, are a playful mix of Asian elegance and modern, modular engagement. Beautiful, sliding Shoji screens allow you to change the very layout of your room’s floor plan to suit your whimsy, while innovative “Chromatherapy” lighting allows you to color code your mood. Throw on the switch of the cyclone fireplace, that teeters on the edge of kitschy but ultimately wins you over as you can’t help but be mesmerized by its futuristic 1950’s cool factor. Also, they leave a delightful little box containing scrumptious mini cupcakes of the local, Cupcake Couture, as a token of welcome at your bedside–how can you not be charmed?
