Underwhelmed
Due to covid the rooms were stripped of almost everything that was advertised to be in there and I was not aware of that before booking or upon check-in. Paid extra for a city view, but the window was super small and the city view was really just a view of a busy street. Carpets and grout in bathroom was dingy. Bed was comfy and clean, but would not stay there again.

The Mama Shelter was an amazing hotel which was centrally located with many cool amenities. We really enjoyed that the bathroom was one large shower and the Star Wars masks as our night lights. The roof top patio was the most impressive part of this hotel with great views (the Hollywood sign) and good drinks -- however, those beverages were very pricey. Our view from our room was an alley -- but we really didn't care. We ate dinner in the restaurant and it was so good we dined there again the second night. We were one block from the Walk of Fame and enjoyed exploring downtown. The only negative about this property was the elevator was very creaky! We would definitely go back!

Not a hotel - they only care about the rooftop bar
Do not bother staying at this hotel unless it's for some reason really valuable to you to be "put at the top of the wait list" for the rooftop restaurant/bar. It doesn't function like a hotel - everyone there is just a hostess for the long line of people waiting outside (not socially distanced) to get to the stupid rooftop. Not fun trying to get luggage through that crowd just to check in and have the hotel staff keep you waiting because they are explaining to someone how long their wait will be for a table. No staff at front desk. Called down to get a drinking glass - because none are in the room - and no one answered. You should NEVER EVER not have someone answer at the front desk of a hotel. I've stayed at Mama Shelters in other parts of the world - that also had attached restaurants - and they were not like this at all. Get it together - you're a hotel.
