Hospitality group Ennismore, in alliance with Shivom, has announced the signing of Mama Shelter Downtown LA in California, US.

Expected to open in early 2026, this will mark the brand’s second property in Los Angeles after the launch of Mama Shelter LA in Hollywood in May 2015.

Mama Shelter Downtown Los Angeles is owned by Harry and Kevin Wadhwani of Shivom.

In collaboration with Sammy Chotirmal of Hospitality Solutions, Shivom plans to transform the location of the new hotel.

Ennismore Brand COO and Head of Central and Southern Europe Cédric Gobilliard said: “We are thrilled to be opening a second Mama Shelter in LA.

“Los Angeles is a place to live life to the fullest, carrying so many fundamental values of the Mama brand, including her irreverent, popular, sassy and sexy personality, which fits perfectly with the glamour of LA. We look forward to bringing Mama’s spirit to the city again with partners with Shivom LLC.”
