Ennismore, in collaboration with Shivom LLC, is set to expand its footprint in Los Angeles with the announcement of Mama Shelter Downtown LA, slated to open its doors in 2026.
This move comes on the heels of the success of Mama Shelter LA in Hollywood, which began operations in May 2015.
In a significant addition to the list of new hotels in Los Angeles, the revamped Mart South Building in Downtown LA will house the new establishment. With a total of 149 rooms, including four opulent suites, Mama Shelter Downtown LA is poised to offer guests its signature eclectic and vibrant ambiance. The hotel’s amenities will include three F&B outlets, a fitness center, and parking facilities, all set against the backdrop of Mama Shelter’s iconic interior designs and events.
Located in the heart of LA’s Fashion District, the hotel promises easy access to over 4,000 independent retailers and a diverse range of dining venues. It’s also a stone’s throw away from landmarks like the California Market Center (CMC), Santee Alley, and the Los Angeles Flower District.
Nestled in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, the Fashion District is a vibrant shopping haven spanning roughly 100 blocks. This bustling enclave offers a diverse array of retail and wholesale stores, with everything from cutting-edge fashion apparel to unique accessories. The district’s crown jewel, Santee Alley, is a must-visit, known for its eclectic vendors, bargain finds, and lively atmosphere. As you wander through the district, you’ll also discover a mix of textile vendors, trendy boutiques, and a mosaic of cultures, making it a truly unique shopping experience in the City of Angels. For those looking to stay close to the action, numerous hotels in the area cater to every budget and preference, ensuring a comfortable and convenient stay.
Cédric Gobilliard of Ennismore shared his excitement about the expansion, while Kevin Wadhwani of Shivom LLC emphasized the strategic location and unique offerings of the hotel. With its prime location and distinctive brand identity, Mama Shelter Downtown LA is set to be a notable addition to the roster of new Los Angeles hotels.
The hotel, a venture of Shivom LLC developed in collaboration with Sammy Chotirmal of Hospitality Solutions, is set to welcome guests in early 2026.
