... easy to figure out and once you
been there a day or two you can split and meet at a landmark you now
both know etc, but when phone signals often don't work it's hard not
to worry if someone is late returning. Just as important though and
something we did frequently, is giving the other person mental space,
being able to be in the same room but not have to talk to each other
all the time is a great skill; being able to zone out and do your own
... beers with their breakfasts.
I saw this stall, Moishe's Village with 2 older women running it who were screaming at each other in their language. One minute they were almost coming to blows, the next they were laughing their heads off hugging. Decided I had to go there for brunch. I had a lahmajune, which had bacon and eggs, ...
... mother country. we first found the kookiest place we have stayed in thus far. the Hollywood dream suites building was bright pink and had, in huge, golden, foot high letters the legend ALEXANDER - RULER OF THE WORLD emblazoned across its frontage. really - check out the photos.
We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe suite. I am not entirely sure what made it hers - there was about three pictures of the late Ms. Monroe in the apartment, and a ...
... across a congo dance party in defiance of police patrol with people screaming "**** the feds" and half of which I'm pretty sure were high on medical marijuana. So the streets for a while were filled with a cacophony of chants, drums and police sirens. Determined to also fit in Santa Monica, we walked about an hour in the dark, which seemed like forever, to finally reach the amusement park/carnival pier. The final day involved all the final LA sites crammed into ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Elan Hotel Los Angeles
Absolutely the best for the money
This hotel was just what everyone that previously reviewed it said it was. Excellenct service, the rooms are nicely decorated, high end sheets and bedding. Great bargain. I would definitely stay there again.
It's nice to be treated like royalty! Our stay at Elan from the moment of check-in to the check-out was 100% top notch. We're a young couple, and have had our share of snobby experiences in L.A. I can't express how great the staff of this hotel treated us. Our room was directly off the lobby, so we were able to pop over and enjoy the complimentary wine & cheese.We stayed on Halloween and it was pouring rain. I didn't expect to be able to catch a cab, even with the hotel front desk calling for us. It was just a busy friday, and much to my surprise the gal at the front desk called 3 times inquiring about our taxi.One of our friends met us in the hotel and had already valeted his car when he realized he left part of his costume in the car. He was really surprised at how nice the valet was, he escorted him down to the parking garage and let him retrieve his item.Complimentary breakfast was nice too. I loved the modern design of the room, the linens were from heaven (Imported Italian so incredibly soft I didn't want to go home and sleep on my measly 200 count sheets). We were right off a courtyard that was decorated in blue glass. Neat.If you are a fan of modern design, this hotel is IT. I booked through hotels and got a great rate. I would go back over and over again.
The perfect hotel. I am very hard to please and yet they gave me no reason to complain. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The room was clean and cozy. I will definitely stay here next time I am in LA.
Excellent Service - KUDOS
We recently stayed at the Elan (10/17/03) based on others reviews posted at this site. The only thing I can say it's: "MAGNIFICENT". The staff was friendly and helpful. In this days, where customer service is the #1 priority, this hotel excels at it.
They also offer wine and cheese afternoon for their guests and a complete breakfast in the morning. The location is superb, with good restaurants at walking distance. If you are looking to go out at night, Sunset it's less than 5 min away in car. You'll find this hotel to be very convenient for everything that you may want to do in Hollywood.
I have never been treated any better - anywhere! We didn't plan on staying at the Elan. We were dumped there when another hotel wouldn't honor our internet reservations. And what's more the other hotel didn't even book us a comparable room. We went from a suite to a standard double!
We loved this hotel. Great location and nice staff. The walls are quite thin though, and if you like to sleep in chances are your neighbor will wake you up! Very clean!
A Great Find in LA
This is a small boutique hotel with a fantastic location. Rates are very reasonable and the staff was extremely helpful. I really enjoyed the comfortable bedding, silky sheets and the robe. Nice and quiet, I slept great. There are so many restaurants and great shopping in this neighborhood you don't really need to drive much.
Good, Not Great
This is a good, but not great small (2-story) hotel on a very busy street in a very busy part of town. It's near some very good restaurants, close enough to walk to, which is nice. The design is sort of space-age 60's modern, done in a clean and spare style which appeals to a young clientel. The staff is friendly and helpful--no problem there. My biggest problem was the non-adjustable temperature in the rooms, which in my case, was too cold and kept the air conditioner blowing all night. Free breakfast includes cold cereal, muffins, bagels and OJ. We were also offered green bananas. They set out wine and a plate of crackers with some cubed jack cheese about 5 PM. Go here only if you get a really good rate.
I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Fantastic staff, quiet comfortable rooms with nice furnishings, great location, very reasonable rates. You'll also save time and money with their free continental breakfast - it is fresh and plentiful. You won't be disappointed!
Great Small Hotel, Great Location
I asked a good friend in LA for a hotel recommendation. She turned me on to the Elan Hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and the value is excellent. Rooms are very clean and the sheets and towels are marvelous. I used their meeting room for two hours and they did not even charge me. I had a wonderful dinner at a local restaurant recommended by the hotel. Excellent location for shopping and business.
