Mama Shelter is the Mother of All Geek HotelsAre you planning on attending Le Web in Paris on December 9 & 10? If so we just found the perfect place to stay for you. Hotel Mama Shelter is Paris’ newest Philippe Starck-designed hotel and it is gorgeous. It is located at 109 rue de Bagnolet in the Saint Blaise quartier (on the edge of Paris) with 174 “digital” guest rooms.

Every room has an iMac that isn’t just connected to the Internet but also acts as a HDTV, music, radio, CD, films and DVD player. It will be very attractive to just stay in bed and just follow the Le Web Twitter stream.
