Rooms from $159/night*
Mama Shelter LA, a six-story hotel at the oh-so-Hollywood corner of Selma and Wilcox Avenues, was designed by Thierry Gaugain. It's the first American outpost of the "quirky chic" Mama Shelter boutique hotels, which originated in Paris. Hotel owner Benjamin Trigano commissioned local artists to run wild on the ceilings, adding an only-in-Los Angeles feel to the colorful, Parisian chic decor.
