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.
An absolutely wonderful experience
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.
Four star treatment at the Elan
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!
The Elan desk manager could tell how upset we were when we checked in and upgraded us to one of their suites at no extra cost! He was so kind and caring - I just couldn't believe it.
The Elan is on a busy street in a busy part of town, but well situated for shopping at the Beverly Center or trade shows at the Design Center.
It has no room service per se, but will order food for you from a local bistro. No self parking is available (meters surround the hotel). The valet parking is average ($12.00), but the valet service is WAY above average.
The hip, modern decor is not my taste - and while I would never have booked it on my own, I was delighted to have a bed in L.A. on Emmy's weekend where I was treated like royalty!
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.

... there for all of 3 minutes and then we are boarding the plane. All I can say is thank goodness we left earlier than we had intended!
On the plus side, the flight is uneventful and they even have in-flight entertainment which is unusual for a domestic flight. We even make up time on the way arriving about 25 minutes ahead of schedule. It is a beautiful morning and the skies are clear so for much of the way I can see the earth. We are lucky enough on arrival to get a direct ...
... realising a beautiful near full moon gave enough light to walk by. We kept the pace up and the stops brief and managed the 5 miles of steep in 4.5 hrs – a record for us so far! As we near the rim day walkers offered more and more congratulations and by the time we got to the top we were pretty stoked with our achievement. Leila loved her necklace too!
Business time. With two weeks left we turned our full attention to selling the R.V. Potentially quite ...
... with the hand and foot prints of all the famous stars - although I think we were only really concerned with Harry potter stars and Star Wars! Ha! We then moved on to Madam Tussauds which was a great laugh! There are three floors of wax works - the first seemed a bit scarce and not what I was picturing in my head but the wax works were extremely good and very life like! The next two floors where brilliant - the models were placed more in settings and ...
... Worlders cluttering up the foyer. Underarm hair is evident on most attendees, as are beards. And that's just the women... Strange how the Hippie crowd eschews Corporatism, yet manages to clutter up the hotel Starbucks outlet. Not a bad start to the trip. We'll regroup, repack and standby for the next. Long haul to London. We've applied for an upgrade as we have a few in ...
... the fact I'm not departing until 0700. I make my way to the airline desk. It seems they are the ones that control immigration on the departure from Mexico. They verify my ticket back to Australia before they allow me to check into the flight. I couple of old ladies next to me are denied check in cause they had gone over their visa waver while exploring south and Central America. So they weren't allowed back to the US. Even if it's just to transit home. This policy I had known. ...
