A second Mama Shelter is coming to Los Angeles

A place to live life to the fullest, Mama Shelter Downtown LA will open its doors in 2026.


Transforming the existing Mart South Building in Downtown LA, 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.

Known as the world’s entertainment capital, Los Angeles is a cultural mecca, home to over 100 museums. Mama Shelter Downtown LA is conveniently situated in the city’s Fashion District, home to over 4,000 independently owned retailers and thriving local and national restaurants and haunts. With its rich fashion industry legacy, California Market Center (CMC), adjacent to the hotel, has long been an iconic DTLA destination for premier events. Additionally, Santee Alley, one of the most popular shopping corridors in Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Flower District, the largest flower marketplace in the United States, are within walking distance from Mama Shelter Downtown LA.

The second Mama Shelter hotel in the city comes following the success of Mama Shelter LA, which opened in May 2015 in Hollywood.
