“Very nice hotel”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Ive spent 4 nights at this hotel with my wife, its a great hotel, good location, clean rooms, spacious, friendly staff. The internet was not great and not having a parking is a pain.Generally, its a pleasant stay. I Enjoyed it.

I've stayed here recently and it was a wonderful experience. It's a small hotel but it's got GREAT staff and the beds were comfy. But our room was on the west side which was pretty noisy as of the alley right outside of it and the traffic on Beverly Blvd.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east and north sides are quieter

We were so lucky to have come across this little treasure in LA. The hotel was small, the rooms were a good size, as was the bathroom and wardrobe and drawer space to unpack and feel at home. The staff were all friendly and so helpful. They offered great advice on transport, restaurants and attractions in the area. Were were allowed to check in hours before we should have after flying in from San Francisco which was a bonus. They also have a complimentary wine and cheese period at the end of the day which is a great way to unwind after walking your feet off all day. We would hightly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I think any room at this hotel would be great

Green Features: The hotel offered various forms of environmentally-friendly practice such as laundering and re-use of partially used toiletries. Good on them.

Don't be put off by the outside appearance, this hotel provides excellent service from the moment you arrive. We requested an early check in and late departure, both requests were satisfied. The complimentary breakfast was excellent value as was the wine and cheese each afternoon. If shopping is on your list then the location will suite as it is in walking distance and many shops to visit. Many restaurants to choose from and in walking distance. NB: if you are looking for something different to visit a 35 minute walk will take you to the 'La Brea Tar Pits' a historical sight of the Page museum prehistoric animals.

After looking for many hotels, I couldn't have found a better place! The bedroom has a great size (king bed bedroom), all clean and new, the bathroom also very nice, coffee maker and a Frigobar. Otherwise my room was in the ground floor in front of the Main Street, I had no trouble with noise. The breakfast is very good, with fruits, yogurt, choice of breads. The wine in the afternoon was a nice complement. The location for me was awesome, near to nice stores and restaurants that I went by walk, and by car is very central to the most tourist places. All staff was very kind, in special Paulo, the valet guy that is also Brazilian and gave me good tips of LA.

Room Tip: My room was in front of the street but we have no trouble with the street noise.

Lovely small, boutique hotel in the heart of Los Angeles, the Elan is near shopping and restaurants. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the room was clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were an additional bonus. I have family in Los Angeles and I am looking forward to my next visit, which definitely will include a stay at the Elan Hotel.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a busy street. Ask for a room away from the front of the hotel.

This is a very nice place to stay in a good area of Los Angeles, adjacent to Bevery Hills and Hollywood. The decent sized rooms are well appointed and the service is outstanding. There is no restaurant or bar, but many are located within easy walking distance of the hotel. There is a complimentary continental breakfast served each morning in the attractive lobby and free wine and cheese every evening between 5 and 7 p.m. Prices are very reasonable for a quality hotel with an excellent location. You can walk to Farmer's Market and Beverly Center is just down the street.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter because the hotel is located on a fairly busy street.
