Our stay at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach, CA was provided for us at the standard media rate. Despite receiving a discounted price, all reviews are my own thoughts and opinions about our experience.
About a year ago, my husband and I moved from our little beach town in Manhattan Beach, California up to the San Francisco Bay Area where I grew up. We (read: I) wanted to be near family to make raising our own family just a bit easier. However, we both desperately miss Manhattan Beach and try to get back down there every chance we get. So when the opportunity arose for us to take a mini-Babymoon, we immediately decided on Manhattan Beach, and knew Shade Hotel right in the heart of downtown Manhattan beach would be the perfect splurge for this special trip!
