Hollywood Hot Spot
W’s features writer puts MAMA Shelter’s new outpost on her radar.
Created seven years ago by the Trigano family, who also cofounded Club Med, the MAMA Shelter hotel group mixes trendy settings with accessible pricing in European hot spots like Istanbul, Paris and Bordeaux. This week, they’ve opened their first US outpost in Hollywood. The Thierry Gaugain-designed six-story boutique property features rooms outfitted with 27-inch iMacs and a California-style restaurant with a menu by L’Atelier Robuchon and Petrossian alumnus chef Benjamin Bailly. Come October, they’ll open a rooftop with a fitness center, bar and theater—just in time for an NYC fall escape.
