I highly recommend this boutique hotel - offers a good breakfast, underground parking and unique features at an affordable price. The heated toilet seat is a unique bonus. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Hello Tourist605204, Thank you for being our guest and taking the time to write a review for our hotel. We appreciate your feedback about your stay. Our breakfast team try their best to make sure that you have a great meal to start your day off with and are more than happy to accommodate any dietary needs so long as we have advance notice. And the heated toilet seats are something unique to our hotel I believe. Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

I stayed for business and was very pleased. It was clean, the staff was friendly, breakfast was excellent, and the fitness centre, though very small, was also clean with well-functioning, up-to-date equipment. The hotel is also convenient to many restaurants and shops.

Room was very clean and had all the amenities that you could possible want. The rain shower and heated toilet seat was a novelty. Bed was very comfortable and good selection of T.V Channels. For a down town hotel, it was very quiet. Breakfast could use a bit of an improvement

Hello abformela, Thank you for being our guest and taking the time to write a review for our hotel. We appreciate your feedback about your stay. Our housekeeping team makes sure that everything is clean and good to go so that you can just go into your room and go right to sleep, or if you are here multiple days that you come back to a clean room each day you are with us. The bathroom is a very popular part of our hotel, as you do not find heated toilet seats in very many places. Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. Sincerely, Stephen Smith Guest Services Supervisor 403-229-2040 stephen.smith@hotelelan.ca

Hello Joanne, Hotel Elan is located just off the Red Mile so there are numerous restaurants within a short walk, some of the best ones Calgary has to offer are located nearby. As for transit to the Stampede Grounds you can take either the #6 bus all the way down 17 Ave and walk 3 blocks from where it turns off 17 Ave onto 1 St SW. Or you can walk up to Downtown West-Kerby Station which is a 10 minute walk north of our Hotel along 11 st SW. If you decide on the train you would pay for your transit at the train station (they take change, debit or credit while bus only takes change) and you would have to transfer from the Blue Line (Saddletowne) to the Red Line (Somerset-Bridlewood) at one of the downtown stations. I hope this helps. Stephen Smith Guest Services Supervisor

Hello, Our hotel is straight down 17 Ave from the Saddledome. You can either walk there which will take roughly 30 minutes, depending on how busy the streets are, and how fast the people going walk. You you can take transit. There are buses which go east along 17 ave. You would get off at 1 St SW and walk the rest of the way, or you can walk downtown and take the train to Victoria Park Station.

Hello Elag, Thank you for your question. All of our hotel rooms come with walk-in showers. There is a slight lip to keep water from getting out onto the bathroom floor. Stephen Guest Services Supervisor
