DIDN'T SEE ANY YET last chance today before we fly out tonight
Had a good time here, walked the Hollywood Boulevard to see the stars and visited the Chinese theatre to see the hand and foot prints of the stars

We decided to not set the alarm today so we could catch up on some much needed sleep. In bed relatively early last night, about 10:30, so we awoke around 8:30. At around 10:00 am we went down for breakfast in the hotel restaurant and then checked out at 11 am. Our plan for the day was to explore Santa Monica, and luckily, the hotel agreed to hold …

This is where the sad part of our tale occurs. When we arrived at Avis to drop off the car we discovered that Julia’s carry-on bag was missing from the boot. We couldn’t understand how it wasn't in there as were 99% sure it was still there when we put the last lot of shopping in the boot and there was no way it could have ...

On the streets behind Venice beach are many shops and restaurants to choose from. There is also an area where there are beautiful canals lined with walkways and bridges connecting them. There were some amazing apartments in this area.

Our time with Dave the tour guide had come to an end. He had been friendly and helpful since 8.25am and now it was 4.30pm. An exhausting but fantastic day. It was time to make our way to the hotel we were going to stay at tonight. A harbor side hotel in a beach ...

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.
