American debut of funky French hotel chain with whimsical interiors and a hot rooftop bar
At the American debut of funky French-based hotel chain Mama Shelter, in a revived 1920s hotel smack dab in the center of Hollywood, it's all about the fun and lovable details: the chalkboard lobby ceiling, the vending machines that spit out granola, and an unbelievable price point for this part of town. Upstairs, 70 rooms are teched out yet comfy, with iMacs, views of the Hollywood Hills, light reading in the form of movie scripts (hey, this is LA), and whimsical, Instagram-worthy touches like Bert and Ernie bedposts and Darth Vader lamps. The place to be in this neighborhood is the hotel's roof deck, which has been converted into a see-and-be-seen bar and restaurant. Come to check out friends duking it out over foosball, couples watching movies from rainbow-striped chairs, and rotating DJs spinning through the night—all against a 360-degree backdrop of the city, the hills, and that beloved Hollywood Sign.
In the Area
Mama Shelter LA is just a hop and a skip away from Hollywood Boulevard, home to some of the city's best attractions. You're just a block and a half away from two movie palaces—ArcLight Cinemas and the Dome—as well as Amoeba Music, a 50,000-square-foot independent record shop (and one of the area's biggest hangouts). The Hollywood Walk of Fame is also less than 10 minutes away on foot.
