I stayed in the Hotel Elan in June. I spent 4 nights at the hotel doing some exploring of the Rockies and the Praries around Calgary. 16th Avenue which the hotel is on, runs parallel with what is pretty much the busiest street for shopping and nightlife in the city. Having said that, the street remains quiet through the night... More

We staid for 1month in this hotel in 2br suite. The suite had fully sized and equipped kitchen which was very important for the family with the child.

Trip Advisor is 100% correct: Hotel Elan is the #1 rated hotel in Calgary for many reasons, and it totally deserves it! We stayed in a Cascade King One Bedroom Suite from June 22 - June 27. It was on the 8th floor and faced west. Since it was the start of summer, the sun shone brightly into our room... More

If you're looking for a modern boutique hotel, this is it. We totally enjoyed every aspect for our room: very comfortable bed and pillows, lighting systems, etc. Taking a picture of the bathroom was a first for me. It was exceptional.

Our bedding package and pillow menu of soft and firm pillows certainly is a hit with our guests. However our bathrooms complete with rain shower heads and heated toilet seats delight many and yes even pictures! So glad you enjoyed your stay with us while visiting Calgary! More
