One of the hottest hotels and nightlife destinations in Los Angeles is getting a sister spot.
Ennismore, the fastest-growing lifestyle hospitality company, and partner Shivom LLC, have announced the signing of Mama Shelter Downtown LA, set to open in 2026. The second Mama Shelter hotel in the city comes following the success of Mama Shelter LA, which opened in May 2015 in Hollywood.
“We are thrilled to be opening a second Mama Shelter in LA,” said Cédric Gobilliard, Brand COO & Head of Central & Southern Europe at Ennismore, “Los Angeles is a place to live life to the fullest, carrying so many fundamental values of the Mama brand, including her irreverent, popular, sassy and sexy personality – which fits perfectly with the glamour of LA.”
Transforming the existing Mart South Building in DTLA, the new Mama Shelter will boast 149 keys, including 145 standard rooms and four suites in Mama’s signature sassy and flamboyant style. A haven for people of all ages, Mama Shelter Downtown LA will offer three festive F&B outlets to party and play with an all-day dining restaurant and café on the ground floor and a rooftop bar and terrace overlooking the city. Guests at the hotel will also have access to and use of an on-site fitness centre and parking garage.
Mama’s exuberant interior decorations, homemade, high-quality menus and year-round happenings have become a staple in every one of her destinations, and Mama Shelter Downtown LA will be no exception. Guests will find all the design signatures that define a Mama Shelter, from graffiti carpets and ceilings to comfy chairs, cartoon masks and singular ornaments that echo Mama’s personality, signature comfort food, and Mama nights to get the party started.
“We are thrilled to partner with Ennismore, the renowned hospitality company, to bring Mama Shelter for the second time to the dynamic landscape of Los Angeles,” said Kevin Wadhwani, Managing Partner at Shivom LLC. “This marks an exciting step forward in bringing one-of-a-kind, lifestyle-focused brands to LA. Our new hotel will sit near the impressive 1.20 million sqft. California Mart, a veritable hub of commercial activity, housing prestigious offices and showrooms of fashion houses. The strategic location enhances the appeal of our offering, creating an inviting space for locals and guests to experience the lively energy of LA, wrapped in the comfort of Mama Shelter.”
