I stayed at this hotel in early July and was very impressed with the hotel and the service provided by the staff. The hotel was very clean and well located. The staff were exceptional in providing assistance and arranging transport and tours.

The Elan hotel has the best service in LA, besides its wonderful location! The suites are very comfortable and the breakfast is great!

Thanks Joel for all your attentions and look forward to host you at Los Cabos!

What a great find. We were only able to stay one night, wish we had more time. We stayed in the junior suite which was perfect for our family. The hotel is incredibly clean and the beds are excellent. The location was excellent. We loved the continental breakfast as well. The staff was excellent, everything about our time there was perfect!

On a recent business trip we stayed at the Elan Hotel, close to Cedars-Sinai hospital. It's a smallish hotel in an older building which is nicely maintained. I found the hotel comfortable, the staff extremely helpful and my room was just what I needed. Even though my room was more of a European-sized room, it was fine for me -- I do know that some of the rooms were larger. It was very clean and the toiletries in the bathroom and the bathrobe and slippers were a very nice touch. In the evening they have a complimentary wine and cheese offering that has a wine-server to make sure you're comfortable and that the seating area is well-attended. Complimentary breakfast as well (pastries, cereals, yogurt, etc.).

It was a really nice place to sit and relax. Would recommend for business travelers and for those who might need to visit the hospital complex nearby. Much cheaper than the Sofitel down the street.

Green Features: Green hotel -- I was very pleased with their policies and practices.

Clean, stylish, quiet, excellent staff, great location. Bed was really comfortable, bathroom was very good. Perfect for the Beverly centre and a nice walk to the Grove and the Farmers Market. Great base for when you're in L.A.

It's an oldish building (1960's ??) but nicely renovated and very clean. So- how do you compete in a crowded market when you are up against newer properties? You just give great service and lots of value adding. The complimentary wine and cheese each evening and the complimentary breakfast are great ( there is even Vegemite ). Beds extremely comfortable. The staff are all lovely - and very helpful. Great location, especially if you want to shop. We didn't have a car and were easily able to take buses or walk everywhere. Highly recommended. Not lavish but great value.

Dear Guest,

It is tough to compete in a competitive market such as Los Angeles. However we do feel that we are a great value for the dollar considering that we have complimentary Wi-Fi, morning expanded continental breakfast, and our evening wine and cheese reception all included in the price of the room. I appreciate the mention of our comfortable beds and our helpful staff. Thanks for your review and for recommending the Élan Hotel!

Stayed at the Elan recently for the third time in a couple of years. This is a quality hotel in all aspects. Clean and comfortable rooms and surrounds, with attentive and very friendly staff. Has a great atmosphere with a good breakfast and of course the early evening drinks and nibbles. Recently arrived early after an arduous long non-stop international flight and we were checked in quickly without any hassles and were upgraded from our basic room to a full suite which was an unexpected bonus. The location is good with shopping and restaurants within easy walking distance. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Elan as a place to stay in LA
