Created seven years ago by the Trigano Family, co-founders of Club Med, MAMA began her roots in Paris, then Marseilles, from there to Lyon, Istanbul, Bordeaux, and now Los Angeles. MAMA Shelter, the first U.S. property, opened on July 3rd.
Designed by Thierry Gaugain, MAMA Shelter perches six-stories over Hollywood Blvd. The rooms hold king beds and 27 inch iMacs (featuring television, Criterion Collection movies, video/photo booth, and of course the Internet). MAMA’s rooftop allows you to take in the sights of all of Los Angeles with a near 360 degree view from the Hollywood sign to Downtown to South Bay to the Westside. The hotel is located blocks away from the Chinese Theatre along the Walk of Fame, as well as countless boutiques and bars, tattoo parlors and record shops, burrito stands and vegan restaurants.
