Staff were welcoming and helpful. The room was outstanding. Every need was catered for. Location was perfect. Great breakfast and a lot more choice than a regular continental. The only negative was that the heating and cooling was a little load in the room.

we recently stayed at Hotel Elan for 3 nights. my previous visit was several months prior and we booked a 2 bedroom suite which was quite nice. This time, we booked a king room which was still quite spacious. the room layout was a bit odd and there was only one chair ( besides the desk chair) to relax in... More

So glad to see that you are trying out and experiencing different room suite types at Hotel Elan! There are unique 8 different layouts that we offer from hotel rooms, one and two bedroom suites on every floor. When Hotel Elan was being constructed the entire interior was removed including all the main floor which now has a lobby, 2... More

I almost don't want to post this review...... this is Calgary's best kept secret and I almost want to keep it for myself! It feels like home there. Awesome rooms, great prices, very clean, awesome service, great location, the best showers ever! I travel frequently to Calgary and normally stay in chain type hotels. I will never stay anywhere else.

We booked a basic King room and didn't like it much. Furnishings are basic. Small window. Odd but interesting minibar items. Bathroom was compact but nice. No suites were available but I was shown one and it was much, much nicer. It included a balcony and a lovely compact kitchen. The bath tub looked inviting. One area that really needs... More

Hotel Elan is adjacent to great restaurants and a quick walk to the city financial core, yet easy to navigate to and around. The hotel property is well kept, stylish and extremely welcoming. Highly recommended.

I stayed in the Elan on the recommendation of a colleague. I would return and would now recommend the Elan to others. The location was convenient for my needs and the room was great. I wasn't aware of guests in the adjacent rooms.

so everything was booked in the downtown core.... (I usually stay at Hyatt or Marriott). Hotel Elan was available and I booked it not expecting much. Had the BEST stay! Booked a 2 bedroom suite. It had it's own fitness area in it, 2 bedrooms, a LOVELY bathroom with a shower and separate soaker tub to die for! The living... More

On my second stay at the Hotel Elan I felt right at home. The attention to detail of the cleanliness in my room to the nice touches like free long-distance calling in Canada and the Keurig machine make this a place I would stay again.

Hotel Elan is situated a short distance from downtown and certainly worth the 10 min cab ride to enjoy all that the hotel has to offer. The king suite I stayed in was beautiful, the cleanliness, the amenities were outstanding. I am returning to Calgary in a few months and would not stay anywhere else!

Yes a ten minute cab ride will take you to downtown locations yet you have the easy access from the hotel of one block to 17th Avenue Retail and Entertainment District!
