We had 3 nights in LA as a precursor to a prolonged road trip around the South West. We wanted an inexpensive hotel in a part of the city we'd feel safe to stroll around day and night. The Elan, manager William and staff provided the best possible start to our trip. Arriving by taxi from the airport at 21.30 we were met at the door, checked in and shown to our room in the most courteous fashion and in double quick time, but not before we'd learned that the hotel provides cheese, wine and coffee each evening, gratis. The evening's offerings had been cleared away but, realising we'd be hungry as well as tired after journeying all day, the staff volunteered to serve it all again just for us! Not only that but when the repast arrived it included a bottle of our favourite Aussie red wine!
The rest of our stay was equally comfortable, the staff being just as happy advising us of bus timetables and bus stop locations as arranging for another guest's hire car to be upgraded to a Hummer! They were also very helpful in arrangingtours etc.
The location was all we could have hoped for - a stroll around the block before breakfast was through a delightful residential area; we walked out at night and felt perfectly safe locating a bar and restaurant some blocks away.
Top marks for the Elan.
