Designed by Thierry Gaugain, Mama Shelter LA perches six-stories over the beautiful freaks and sputtering neon of Hollywood Blvd, the 70 rooms are warm havens with comfortable 5-star bedding. For the restaurant, Mama offers a simple and flavorsome cuisine, inspired by French and American traditions so that you feel at home. Mama’s rooftop allows you to take in the sights of all of Los Angeles with a near 360 degrees view from the Hollywood sign to Downtown to South Bay to the Westside. She’s located blocks away from the peaked roof and cement celeb handprints at the Chinese Theatre along the Walk of Fame, as well as countless boutiques and bars, burrito stands and vegan restaurants. The experiment that began in Paris continues in Los Angeles; Mama saw another sister city of lights. The advantages of Mama Shelter LA : live concerts, shows, Djs, our boutique, free movies on-demand… The bank card used to guarantee the booking or make the prepayment will be requested at check-in.

Neighbourhood
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.

The staff here are hip and warm. The food is excellent. Get the "green omelette" for breakfast. Wonderful marble showers. Comfortable beds. Party-vibe in the evenings and on the roof, but you can retreat to your room if you like. Nice and quiet in the early mornings for

We have previously stayed in other Mama Shelters (in Lyon and Marseille) and the one in LA didn't even come close in terms of service. We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our honeymoon and it was the worse experience we've had in our whole trip. Everyone working there is very

We are sorry to hear that your stay was less than what you have expected as this is definitely the opposite of what Mama is all about. We hope you give Mama another chance to welcome you again...
