We picked the Elan Hotel for it's location, price, and amenities. It was a week-end trip with friends, and we wanted a decent nicely styled room in a good area of Los Angeles. The Elan is right in the center of things, close to Beverly Hills, Westwood, and Hollywood. The Beverly Center is one short block away. Great restaurants are in walking distance. The Elan has continental breakfast, & wine happy hour, included in the reasonable price, and an underground parking garage with valet. The bedrooms were clean, average size and included a refrigerator and coffee maker. The wireless is free. The hotel has a European feel to it and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. As long as the prices stay this reasonable, I will always stay there when in Los Angeles. No complaints at all.

Dear Guest,

Thanks for selecting the Élan Hotel for our excellent location, price point, and room amenities. As you mention we are right in the center of many venues that Los Angeles has to offer! We are central to shopping at the Beverly Center, the Grove at Farmers Market, or Rodeo Drive. One could also take in the sights in Hollywood or Beverly Hills. There are also many great restaurants within minutes of our door as well.
I am glad that you enjoyed our morning continental breakfast and evening wine and cheese reception. Both are a great way to start the day or unwind by surfing the internet on our complimentary Wi-Fi or just making new friends from around the world.
We appreciate your review and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind Regards & Safe Travels,

Joel Majors

Traveled with another party the week of August 4, 2014. Stayed at the Elan because of a 15% discount. We will go back to the Elan because of the excellent staff and location. The hotel is walking distance to the Price Is Right studio on Beverly Blvd. - maybe a 15 minute walk. The hotel is small, but not too boutique(ish). The hotel offers a wine reception from 5:00 to 7:00. I wish I could remember the girl's name who staffed the reception because she was so friendly and kind. Hopefully, she gets to run her own hotel some day. The hotel is within a block of the Beverly Center (Macy's, Bloomindale's, & Target). We explained to the front desk we needed two rooms close to each other. They gave us 216 & 217. Room 216 was a generous size with two double beds, sliding glass doors to a balcony, and nice sized bathroom with a window. Room 217 was a corner room with the same features, but a king sized bed. The hotel can set up tours through Star-Line. Their bus picks up at the front door. Overall, a nice place to stay and a great value.

Room Tip: Room 217 was large with a king sized bed and decent view from the balcony. Overlooked a nice neighb...

Dear Guest,

We like the title of your review! I appreciate your mention of our accommodating staff and location. The staff enjoys the day to day interaction with our guests from around the world. Our Front Desk staff is trained to assist with driving directions, reservations for dinner, sightseeing tours, and so much more.
I am happy that you were able to attend our complimentary wine and cheese reception. Arione is name of the wine sever that your mention. I will be sure to pass your compliments on to her.
We are central to so much of what Los Angeles has to offer. Whether it is shopping at the Beverly Center so taking in some of the local sights, there is something for everyone! There are many restaurants within minutes of our doors as well in every price range.
We are glad that you enjoyed your accommodations with us and hope to see you in the near future. Thanks for your review.

This was my second visit to The Elan Hotel and it still didn't disappoint. First stayed 5 nights in October 2011 and this time 4 nights in August. The staff are wonderful and the location is perfect. Great shopping spots close by. The Beverly Centre is a block away and The Grove is a short cab or nice walk away. I had a Junior Suite this time and the room was lovely. That little bit of extra space was nice. The included breakfast is great. They even have vegemite for us Aussies. The other highlight is the Wine & Cheese for 2 hours every afternoon. Great way to meet fellow travellers. Would definitely recommend this property & I hope to return soon

Dear Guest,

We appreciate your return visit to the Elan Hotel this month. As you mention, our location is one that cannot be beat! We are conveniently located near great shopping venues such as the Beverly Center and The Grove at Farmers Market. In addition there are many restaurants with just minutes of our doors in every price range. I am glad that you liked our Jr. Suite and the amenities that we provide. Breakfast is a great way to start your day here at the Elan. A nice toasted bagel with some vegemite and a cup of coffee is a sure winner! Thanks for recommending us to your friends and family. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Stayed here based on high trip advisor rating and proximity to LAX. Good free breakfast with both indoor and outdoor tables. Could have parked free on street, but paid for valet to protect rental car. Not a big deal, but the faucet is positioned too far from the sink, resulting in a very wet counter. Very easy drive to airport -- no expressways, but lots of stop lights.

Stayed: July 2014

Dear Guest,

We are happy that you stayed at the Elan Hotel based on our Trip Advisor rating. Our morning expanded continental breakfast is a great way to start the day. As you mention we do have outdoor patio seating and the weather lately have been awesome.
We offer Valet Parking to all of our guests however some guests do prefer to park on the street. However, it is very important to read the street signs to avoid getting a parking citation.
You mentioned that the water faucet in the bathroom sink splashed on the bathroom counter. Our engineer has taken a look at this and has adjusted the water pressure so that it flows out more smoothly. Thank for letting us know.
We are happy to offer driving directions to those who call the hotel. In addition, our website offers driving directions to and from the LAX International Airport for those guests who do not have a navigation system. Thank you for your review.

Kind Regards & Safe Travels,

I was very happy with our stay. We were a family travelling and we had two rooms. The team at the front desk was top-notch and very welcoming. The valet service was always fast and easy. It is clear that they pay attention to details in the rooms. The beds were comfortable and the room was nice and quiet.

Early evening wine & cheese was nice and the breakfast had a nice selection.

The location made it easy for us to walk to The Grove for dinner on two evenings. We drove to all the landmarks we wanted to go to, and all of them were short drives.
