“Home away from Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

I find myself having to go to Los Angeles on a more regular basis. This last time was my 4th trip since January and again I stayed at my "home away from home", the Elan. This time I got an interior room with a small double, perfect for me. I feel safe, comfortable, and wanted. This is a good thing for a traveling single woman. I recommend to all. Area is absolutely fantastic. There is nothing that is missing from this centralized location.

Room Tip: Ask for a rear room or interior. You may still hear some noise but the fan will keep it down.

Great boutique hotel in a great position and with reasonable rates. So close , walking distance to the Beverley Centre and restaurant row on the edge of west Hollywood and Beverley Hills. Continental breakfast is included and the helpful and friendly staff really made us feel at home with no request a problem. They have a fantastic guest cheese and wine tasting every day at 4-6pm! Public transport is regular and easily accessible to all parts of LA. Tip don't miss a trip to the farmers Market for good shopping and casual funky LA vibe.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room to avoid road traffic noise. Didn't have a pool but that doesn't matter...

Dear Guest,

We appreciate your comments about being in a great location and that we are a good value for the dollar. The Beverly Center Shopping Mall and The Grove at Farmers Market are just a stone throw away and are terrific for those guests who would like to take in a bit of shopping while they are in Los Angeles. I am happy that you liked our amenities and that you enjoyed our wine and cheese reception. Our public transportation in Los Angeles is very convenient for those who do not wish to drive in the city. Thanks for your review.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Stayed four nights in July. This is a small boutique hotel on two floors of a normal two story LA building. Not cheap for what it is, but a complimentary breakfast of bagels, cereal, yoghurts and fruit - and good American coffee - and a complimentary wine and cheese supper kind of takes the sting out of it. Great wifi. Not a lot of space. Lobby lounge is made a little better by a narrow outside seating area.

Stayed in one of the few twin bedded rooms at the back of the hotel. You are not going to see anything out of the window anyway. And the rooms are good, clean, well looked after with quiet central aircon. So elegant enough to justify the price. I asked whether they had a twin room and had a helpful response. Not sure they show up on the booking engine.

Parking is roughly $26 overnight with friendly valet. And there is a front desk person - all guys that I saw - on duty to handle enquiries in friendly fashion.

The Elan is well positioned between a large shopping mall and a quiet residential neighborhood. The King's Road Cafe down the street has a great lunch and more limited dinner menu. The CVS store across Beverly Boulevard is large and well-stocked. The blocks to the northeast offer a pretty and quiet jogging route through suburban gardens.

Dear Guest,

The Élan Hotel is a convenient central location for exploring Los Angeles. As you mention we are a two story building with 49-Rooms which makes for an easy in and out if one is in a rush. We feel that our accommodations and the amenities that we offer are a good value for the dollar. Especially with complimentary Wi-Fi, expanded continental breakfast, and evening wine and cheese reception. It’s nice to read that you were able to do some jogging while you were here. Thanks for your review.

Arrived to be greeted by the front desk clerk who immediately made fun of my accent. I grew up in the south but do not live there now. To make matters worse, the room was about as big as my walk-in closet. Wine and cheese reception as well as breakfast were fair. I plan to return to LA this fall for a medical seminar but I will not be staying at the Elan Hotel. Trip Advisor got this one wrong!

Dear Guest,

We enjoy finding out where are guests are from upon check-in and are very sorry that you felt someone was making fun of your accent. Certainly this was not intended and we are very sorry. In fact, many of the staff at the hotel has accents including myself. We do have several different sizes of rooms to choose from include our Executive King room and our Jr. Suite and do not mind upgrading our guests based on availability. Please contact me as I would like to apologize for the misunderstanding. Thank you for your review.

Kind Regards & Safe Travels

Very good location. Excellent staff and amenities. Nicely appointed room, welcoming front desk and bellman staff, breakfast in the morning and light appetizers and beverages in the late afternoon/early evening. Forgot my iTouch in my room and Michael at the desk, and Joel Majors the GM, mailed it back to me promptly. Would highly recommend to anyone.
