“Lovely Hotel in good location”

We chose this hotel following reviews on trip advisor. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast and cheese and wine were an added bonus. Thank you for a great stay in L.A.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We booked our room for Labor Day and wanted to get something in a good area at a great price that was clean and boutique. They had a nice wine happy hour in the afternoon with cheese, crackers and some light snacks. Our room was clean and the staff was nice. The only issue we had was the bed was very small. It was listed under Expedia as a double bed and i always thought double beds were very similar to queen beds. This is definately NOT the case. It was ok for one night for my wife and I but if you are staying longer you may want to consider upgrading. We made a comment to the reception and they offered to updgrade us for a fee but we declined. Overall the room was quiet, clean and good for an overnight stay just be sure you don't need more than a double bed.

Room Tip: You don't have to use the valet. There is street parking if you arrive late and are staying on...

We stayed in Elan for 6 nights in July. It was our first time in LA. The hotel was nice and clean. We got a room next to the room where they served breakfast, so it was a little noisy in the mornings. Room itself was nicely decorated and the bathroom was clean. Valet parking worked well.

The staff in the reception was good, especially the one who had recently moved to LA from New Orleans (greetings from Finland!). He was very helpful and funny!

First we were a little confused about LA itself, because of the cars and driving everywhere. But I think when we got used to it, the location was good. There are still shops and restaurants nearby, if you prefer walking.

Room Tip: Ask a room away from the breakfast room.

We stayed at Élan hotel from 22-25 Aug and cannot fault them on anything. From being met at the shuttle by Paulo after our long flight from Australia to the friendliness of all the staff, we felt as though it was our home away from home. We chose Élan after reading the great reviews and decided to give it a go. Best decision we made. Continental breakfast was excellent...great way to start the day. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Los Angeles.

Beside being customer friendly, this hotel was by far the cleanest I have ever stayed in.
The breakfast was better than expected and the wine and cheese in the afternoon, very generous! This is a great location if you wish to stay on this side of Los Angeles.
