We’re excited to feature one of our favorite spots in LA, owned by longtime Sundry friends Benjamin and Jeremie Trigano. Deemed “One of the Best Hotels in the World” by Travel + Leisure, Mama Shelter is turning the Hollywood hotel scene upside down. Situated in a bustling urban location reasonably priced rooms, the boutique hotel caters to a diverse mix of shelter-seekers. But that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in style or quality.
Benjamin, who also owns M+B Art Gallery in West Hollywood, collected works from several local artists to create a fun and whimsical atmosphere throughout the hotel. He then commissioned Thierry Gaugain to design the Hollywood branch of the hotel with quirky touches and eye-catching artistic elements. But not to fear, as the ever-eclectic space does not scrimp on comfort. Instead, the two sensibilities are blended seamlessly - the rooms boast ultra soft white linens against bright graphic textiles. You might find a Muppet mask doubling as a lampshade cover or Keith Richard’s autobiography sitting on the nightstand beside the Bible (in case music is your religion).
Mama Shelter also feeds their guests well – Chef Giselle Wellman (who is currently on the show Top Chef) serves up a market-based menu at Mama’s all-day restaurant. Long communal tables and an open kitchen make guests feel right at home. We love stopping in for a quick drink (order the Mommy Dearest!) or settling in for a long brunch on a lazy Sunday.
