France Dispatch: Mama Shelter Rolls Out Another Hotel

201206-b-mama-marseille-2jpgCreated by the Trigano family (co-founders of Club Med) and French philosopher Cyril Aouizerate and designed by Philippe Starck, Mama Shelter now counts a second outpost.  The hotel, located near the Port of Marseilles, is slightly smaller than its Paris counterpart.  It has 127 lightly colored–pink, blue, and yellow–rooms, all equipped with iMacs.

201206-b-mama-marseille-1jpgRoom rates begin at 69 Euro per night, with an average price of 100 Euros.  Three more Mama Shelter openings are on the horizon for Istanbul, Lyon and Bordeaux.  A second Paris address is said to be in the works and Stateside, a Hollywood location inside a twenties-era hotel, is reported to be underway for late 2013.
