Booking the shade hotel in Manhattan beach as our wedding venue was the best decision we made. The hotel is in a great location down town manhattan beach. It is a great place for out of town guests to visit, as there are a lot of things to do and see in the area. Shade is small enough that it felt very intimate but big enough that it had everything we needed. The courtyard has a succulent wall which was a great backdrop for the ceremony and the reception and the bistro lights lit up the night. The shade was the most perfect venue with the most wonderful Staff. I can not say enough about how wonderful all the departments are. Everyone was so accommodating and bent over backwards to make sure that everything went according to our visions. The shade hotel far exceeded our expectations. They made planning our wedding so easy and stress free. Ciji was the best event Coordiator ever. She was so easy to work with, she has a great upbeat positive attitude and she was very attentive to detail. She really made us feel special and she was able to personalize our wedding to really fit our personalities. Callie the group sales manager, really helped make our wedding a reality. From the start Callie was able to see our vision and helped guide us along the process. It was really because of Ciji and Callie that we chose the shade as our wedding venue, and we are so happy that we did. They went above and beyond in all aspects of planning and executing our wedding.
We also decided to have our rehearsal dinner on the patio of the zinc lounge which was great. Shelley the general manager was also so wonderful to work with. She was always available to answer any of our questions and she went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Chef Gram was so flexible in designing our menu for both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. Everyone loved all of the food.
Overall, I could not be happier that we chose to go with the shade hotel in Manhattan beach as our wedding venue. The hotel is beautiful, it’s in a great area, the staff is beyond amazing and they personalized everything for us. They made our special day so memorable and we can’t thank them enough for everything that they did for us. I highly recommend the shade for a wedding or any event. Ciji, Callie, Shelley and chef Gram are the best!!!!

The team at Shade Manhattan Beach were simply amazing to work with, from Jenny, Hanna and Callie in events, to Chef Johnny at Zinc Bar and Restaurant. Every detail of our wedding was flawless and it was completely because of the tremendous teamwork that everyone at Shade puts forth. We had some scares because of possible rain, but each person we worked with, including Jeff and Sylivia in management, but our minds at ease and helped with a "rain plan" that we didn't need to put in to effect, luckily. The venue itself is stunning with the succulent wall in the courtyard and the drapes and lights hanging above. At Shade, Chef Johnny provided 5 star quality food and not one morsel tasted like it was "wedding food". Everyone raved about how delicious is all was. My husband and I are "South Bayers" and because of that, we wanted to make sure that we kept our wedding locally, using all local vendors so that our businesses continue to thrive. Shade gave all our out of town guests a better understanding of why we live here, and love our community. You can't get better than this boutique hotel and venue to give you the best taste of SoCal living! Their attention to detail was second to none. I did not have a wedding coordinator and day of, I didn't lift a finger! Hanna and her staff were on point all day making sure I didn't have a worry. Thank you Shade for making our wedding so amazing!Sent on 03/21/2018

Thank you Shade Hotel Manhattan Beach
Much like many brides, I was completely unsure how my hustand and I would agree on the PERFECT place for our wedding. The right combination of indoor/outdoor, romantic but still architecturally pleasing, formal but not too formal space to get married. Shade Manhattan Beach is PERFECTION. Our goal was to be married at a place that was convienant to our family and friends and have the ceremony, cocktail hour, lunch and dancing. Hannah and Jenny were incredible. They listen, they suggest, they problem solve. Both gave us all their best efforts and from the response of our guests, everyone agreed. Shade Manhattan Beach was PERFECTION. MUST HAVE: Penthouse Suite, Bridal Suite, do a daytime wedding to save funds and during an off-prime month, you are getting everything you want for a lil less. THANK YOU!Sent on 11/24/2018

We have had the pleasure of documenting weddings and events at Shade Hotel since they opened. Our clients and our personal experience with the staff and location has always been exceptional. The space is a unique high end beach venue with a boutique intimate feeling unlike anywhere else in the area. Aesthetically it is designed with a timeless modern vibe and there are gorgeous places all over the property to take photographs. Also the food and rooms are top notch which always get extra points from us :-).
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
