I’m not sure where to start, I’ve stayed at a few hotels during Covid due to work and I lean towards boutique hotels instead of chains. I understand that there are protocols and I’m happy to stay in line with them. This, however, is not a case of Covid but rather pretentious staffing and lack of ability to be kind. I couldn’t understand how any one person could be less hospitable let alone several individuals. $200 a night isn’t expensive but I don’t think that it warrants a feeling of inconveniencing someone for a cup of coffee or just trying to get to my room. God forbid, I try to get to my room and without annoy the people at the door even after I told them I was staying there. Unless you don’t mind, sleeping here is not without the night club vibe and noise along with the lack of amenities. Other mama shelters have been great but I don’t recommend this one. I

I love this hotel, staff were very friendly from the very start and could not help you enough. Rooms were comfortable, bathroom was good size. The only snag I would say about the room there were wardrobes to hang your clothes properly or draws for belongings. We ate in the restaurant several times. The food was delicious, specially the breakfast we kept choosing. The bar staff were great and really friendly. The roof top bar is great only can be used in good weather. We had the luck one of the days was very sunny. The other days were rainy so it was not opened. I would stay and recommend this hotel . You are so close to the center everything is walking distance. All I can say is thanks guys to all the staff you made our stay very comfortable.

Mama Shelter has a pretty nice location. it is in Hollywood but not in a very touristy and crowded area. and the price is cheaper than similiar hotel in this area. it has a very young, urban, sleek and eclectic feeling on it. a lot of people come to their bar or their rooftop. its a pretty busy hotel Mama gave a refreshing fruit and cookie as complimentary during our check-in. its really good though Mama didnt refill any of our toiletries during our 3 nights stay. which is weird Room is enough in size, and we love the quirky Star Wars ornament and Apple TV. Receptionist didnt acknowledge our ALL Platinum benefit at all, no room upgrade i guess. a comeback? well probably
