Fresh and beautiful, decorated in modern style with clean lines and relaxing colors. Perfectly located for business or leisure, surrounded by great restaurants and shopping, and convenient to all local attractions. This hotel offers everything travelers need for convenience and comfort. Beginning the day with a healthy and refreshing breakfast, and ending with a relaxing afternoon happy hour of cheeses and wines - all complimentary. Staff is very professional and helpful. Rooms are bright, very clean and comfortable, and eco-conscious with earth friendly bath products. I have stayed at numerous luxury hotels throughout Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, and this is definitely a luxury class hotel without the luxury class price! An absolute must for any traveler looking for ease, comfort, style and value.

And how often can you say that? We were visiting our son and chose The Elan, partly, because it was two blocks from his architecture studio. We enjoyed easy walking excursions to The Farmer's Market, Museum Row (the LACMA was fantastic), and the West Hollywood/Beverly Hills area. Beyond the great location, everything about the Elan was, well, right. The room was thoughtfully designed and refreshingly well kept. The staff was unfailingly friendly. Breakfast each morning was a delight and the evening wine and cheese reception was a great respite after busy days of sightseeing. All in all, we can easily say that we've spent a lot more money to stay at much less desirable hotels. Great job, Elan.

I can not say enough about this small but elegant hotel. Great room, clean and modern looking. Breakfast is lovely. The wine and cheese betwee 5 - 7 is a great idea ! The staff go out of their way to please you. Excellent value for money. Would stay there again and again.

I would stay at this hotel again and highly recommend it to everyone. Excellent location. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Loved the nightly complimentary wine and cheese. Complimentary breakfast was also excellent though would have liked healthier choices. Only thing missing was a pool, work out facilities and on-site restaurant which I usually prefer to have in a hotel but it really didn't make a difference to our trip.

For the money, the hotel was awesome. The staff was super friendly and even printed us directions to each of the touristy spots we wanted to hit. The breakfast each morning was filling and wine/cheese reception each night was unique. The computer with internet access in the lobby came in handy as we mapped out our days. The overall location of the hotel is great. It's very safe feeling and there's a 24 hour drug store within walking distance. Shops & nightlight were a quick drive away.

Only negative aspect was that the rooms were small, but again... for the price, it wasn't bad at all.

Tips:
- Valet parking is $19/day and well worth it - there are in/out privileges and that saved us hassle as opposed to looking for spots on the street.
- Get up by 10:30 for breakfast - it's not a gourmet feast, but the coffee and pastries were a nice way to save a few $$ on breakfast.
- Ask the staff for suggestions. We ate at the best brazillian steak house and took a trail to hike to see the Hollywood Hills based off their suggestions.
