We stayed 5 days at the Elan and were thoroughly pampered and taken care of. The hotel is located in an area that is terrific for vacationers. Most sights are easily traveled to by car or public transportation. The hotel is very clean and the 5:00 wine and cheese a delight as you wait for evening plans. Rooms are spacious and the AC keeps you very comfortable. The staff is uber friendly and helpful. We are planning a late fall trip to LA and we will stay at the Elan again.
