The 10-year-old brand is expected to enter the UK market in 2019 with Mama Shelter Shoreditch, rebranded from the RE Hotel London Shoreditch. The property was purchased earlier this year by an affiliate of Crosstree Real Estate Partners. The 201-room Mama Shelter Dubai (with 80 residences) is scheduled to open in 2020 as part of a partnership with AccorHotels and Khama Group of Investment. The company also is planning to debut in Lisbon, Portugal, in the coming years.

The Mama Shelter portfolio comprises six hotels with 677 guestrooms. 

In 2014, AccorHotels bought a 35-percent stake in Mama Shelter to help speed up the brand's international expansion.
