Mama is set to welcome you in the centre of Hollywood from next month (July 2015). Located just a few blocks away from the Chinese Theatre and the Walk of Fame, this Mama is set to be the new hot spot in town.
Designed by Thierry Gaugain, MAMA Shelter will perch to six-stories overlooking Hollywood Blvd. The 70 rooms will be set up with comfortable king beds and 27 inch iMacs (featuring television, Criterion Collection movies, video/photo booth, and of course the Internet). MAMA’s rooftop will have a gym and will allow 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 ground floor of the hotel will house a free-flowing reception area, lobby, bar and restaurant (from chef Benjamin Bailly). MAMA says they have created a space that brings together all those rhinestone cowboys and Sunset Strip rockers, paint-splattered artists and well-cut designers, balling entrepreneurs and dancehall deejays (along with all those that don’t fit under any easy rubric) who come to Los Angeles to figure things out, mediate in the sunlight, and night-range for the sheer fun freedom of the act.
Created seven years ago by the Trigano Family, co-founders of Club Med, today MAMA is Serge and his two sons, Benjamin and Jeremie. MAMA began her roots in Paris, then Marseilles, from there to Lyon, Istanbul, Bordeaux, and now Los Angeles. We only go to places we would like to live. Benjamin moved to California to found M+B gallery, and thriving here he knew that far-flung travellers and LA dreamers like him needed MAMA.
Watching the surge of traffic beneath the broad fans of palm trees, there is no place else like LA and we think Mama might just make this vibrant city that little bit more interesting. Rooms start at $189.
