South Beach comes to the South Bay with the opening of Shade Hotel.

Featuring a subtle palette of sea tones, the 38-room boutique hotel's interior evokes the changing moods of the Pacific, which lies just three blocks away from Shade's location in the heart of Manhattan Beach.

In the rooms, sets of sliding shoji let you reconfigure the space to either create a sense of openness or divide the sleeping area from the deep-soak spa tub.

In addition, the rooms feature espresso machines, blenders, and martini shakers ― and some even come with "fire cyclones," a high-tech variation on a gas fireplace that creates a spiral of flame within a clear cylinder.
