"What a wonderful Hotel!!"
So me & my GF were looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the area b/c we were going to the House of Blues for a concert. Our price range was under $200/night. After reading a few of the reviews of the hotels in our range & distance to the venue we decided on The Elan Hotel. I called the day before and talked to the Asian guy at the front desk. He […] was accommodating and was going to let us check in a few hours before the checkin time. We only arrived 1 hour before the checkin time. We were immediately checked in & sent to our room. The room was really nice. Flat screen, desk, ipod hookups, down sheets, and clean. At checkin we were told about the wine reception from 5-7pm.....where they offer UNLIMITED WINE & CHEESE!!!! So if you were wondering we pregamed in the lobby then went to the concert.....the server was literally filling the wine glass to the top (its only 1 glass if its filled to the top, right?!?!) Well after about 4 glasses each we stumbled over to the concert. It was really nice that they offered FREE wine!!! The next morning the continental breakfast was pretty decent.....pretty much cold stuff & bagels. Cant complain, but we still went out to eat after. They also offered 2 free PC computers in the lobby and we were able to print some important documents (Sunday football sheets/fantasy matchups). I would stay here again in a heart beat. Only CON of the whole place was the $24 Valet parking.....but its LA so it was expected. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Elan Hotel Los Angeles Dear Kenny, We like reading the title of your review! We feel that we are a great value for the dollar, especially when you consider the complimentary Wi-Fi, expanded continental breakfast, and evening wine and cheese reception. We are glad that you selected the Élan Hotel based upon our reviews! Based on our availability, we are always happy to check-in our guests earlier than the normal 3:00 PM check-in time and we are pleased that we could accommodate your request. Thank you for acknowledging your room amenities and we're glad you enjoyed our wine and cheese reception before the concert that evening. Unfortunately, parking costs are sometimes unavoidable while in Los Angeles; however our prices are very competitive as compared to other hotels in the area. Thanks so much for your review and we hope to see you again in the near future. Kind Regards & Safe Travels, Joel Majors General Manager Élan Hotel
"Top Notch Staff, great stay!"
Great stay! Thanks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"no front desk staff to check me out"
Hotel looks like inn not actual hotel. small and outdated. Very clean though. Staff was super nice but...i was checking out early morning (6am) and there was nobody at the front desk. I waited about 15 min knocking on all the possible doors and making lots of noise. Nobody came. creates few serious issues: degraded hospitality- no way to check out, […] i did not get my bill. I left a note with my contact info. Nobody contacted me. secondly security of the hotel. I could probably take front desk computer and leave. how is that relates to guests security in the Hotel. i think it is big issue. i will prob never stay again.

We only stayed overnight but everyone was since and friendly. Loved the Wine and Cheese Reception. The young women working it, was so very nice. I wish I would have gotten her name. The room was a little small, but it served its purpose. Would stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not boutique in the general sense of the word...."
but it was more than adequate. Breakfast was very typical of European hotels, which I liked very much. Wasn't around the hotel much to comment on anything else. The room was clean and the location was ideal for my purposes. Valet (which you have no choice but to use because of preferential parking) was way too costly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, no parking/vallet only"
Nice small hotel, no bar or restaurant but generous cheese and wine hour. The room the gave us was on the ground floor with no view.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gotta love the decor and cleanliness."
Like how they recycle the soaps. Continental breakfast was self serve but included so that was nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Location- Great Service"
This is the second time I've stayed at the Elan & it is perfect. Clean, comfy, the staff is great & the evening wine reception is icing on the cake! It is a great location- easy drive to many different attractions, sights & even the beaches. May not be great for families with small children, but I highly recommend this hotel for adults on a getaway […] ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
4th time stay.. Still a comfortable, good value place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We liked the breakfast and wine/cheese daily event"

"Excellent hotel in W. Hollywood near shopping"
Great value for money! very near the Beverly Center and other cool attractions. For the area, I believe you will not get better quality for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay"
The hotel was very clean, staff excellent and helpful, excellent location (near Cedars Sinai), the only thing was the room was a little small, but I would stay there again and again and again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Always A Pleasure"

Nice hotel near everything. Would come back anytimeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly and valet was ready all day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Hotel Staff"
From the valet, to the front desk, to the housekeeping staff...everyone was so pleasant, nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend. The location of the hotel was also optimal for our stay. We were very close to many different sites and activities. Very happy customers!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Much better than first impression"
We were a little disappointed when we saw the hotel from the outside. It is rather unassuming and right across the street from a goodwill store. Fortunately, once we stepped inside, we quickly forgot about that. The hotel was quite chic inside and had many nice little details. The other guests were an interesting mix-mostly foreigners on a tour, I think. […] The wine and cheese and the breakfast were nice. The room inside was small, but had very high ceilings and a comfortable bed. I would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Elan Hotel Los Angeles Dear Guest, Our unique building design and amenities is what sets us apart from the so called “cookie cutter” hotels. We have guests from around the world that stay at the Élan Hotel and it is fun to meet them at our morning breakfast and evening wine and cheese reception. I appreciate your mention of our rooms and the amenities that we offer. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future. Thanks for your review.

Non smoking room that led onto a smokers patio - not cool. Room smelled like a smoking room.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Elan Hotel Los Angeles Dear Guest, Many of our guests feel that the Élan Hotel is a good value for the dollar. We offer many amenities that are included in the rate such as complimentary Wi-Fi, deluxe continental breakfast, and evening wine and cheese reception. We are a non-smoking property however we do have an outside patio and courtyard for our guests who do smoke. We would have been happy to move you to another location in the building had we known of the situation. Thank you for your review. We appreciate your visit with us. Kind Regards & Safe Travels, Joel Majors General Manager Elan Hotel
"Very nice hotel"
The bed mattress was too firm for my comfort, but otherwise everything was great! Enjoyed the free breakfast and staff was very friendly. Hotel is also in a great location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location, lovely hotel"
Elan Hotel was perfectly situated for our interests, which included being able to walk to Melrose for dinner at Lucques! Surrounding neighborhood very safe. And we went to Santa Monica beach one day (15 minutes away) and tl the LA County Museum (10 minutes) via car. Very easy. Loved being near the shopping center as well. And we enjoyed our very nice […] room with good linens and towels. Quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed the wine and appetizers as well. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The hotel staff was incredibly kind and accommodating. The room was nice, and very quiet. The complimentary breakfast and wine/cheese offerings were very nice. I will most definitely choose to stay at this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for Beverly Hills and Hollywood!!"

"2nd Year In A Row"
I love staying here for several reasons. The most important one being their level of service. Staff is friendly and attentive. Hotel standards are exemplary. It is conveniently located in the heart of everyone, with easy access to anywhere in L.A. Looking forward to next year's stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was comfortable, the breakfast was nice and I loved the happy hour cheese and wine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was friendly and helpful at all times. The breakfasts had a good selection of food and seemed fresh. Good wine and cheese in late afternoon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was a little small, but it was clean and the location of the hotel was good. Paying for their parking is not worth it as street parking is totally doable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"mellow and clean"
Quiet, located close to a high end shopping mall. Feels like a neighborhood.Genuine Expedia guest review
Situated in a nice neighbourhood, conveniently located. I would not call it a boutique hotel but the rooms are pleasant and the wine and cheese from 5 till 7 are a nice touch.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stuck me in a extremely small room in the interior first floor. Very loud and no cell serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, comfortable, quiet"
Best value at excellent price in this location. Complimentary breakfast, internet and evening wine and cheese a big plus. Would highly recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"World-class service with a smile!"
The staff was unfailingly friendly and professional. We said we needed a dinner reservation for New Year's Eve upon checking in at noon, and the hotel staff member got on it immediately and secured us a fine reservation at a restaurant he knew only a short cab ride from the hotel. The hotel's buffet breakfast is much better and more generous than most […] hotels offer in this price range. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very pleasant staff. Expensive paking (Like everyone in this area so nothing to really complain about) Tidy room. Not ultra modern but decentGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent hotel; staff was the best I've encountered anywhere- incredibly helpful. Breakfast and evening wine/cheese reception were great. Location great to walk n explore. Can't wait to go back!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Boutique hotel, reasonable priced!"
Making a last minute reservation in LA led us to Elan based on price point and reviews from others. We were not disappointed. It's a great boutique hotel with excellent customer service in a great location. Nice free breakfast, fast valet service for car, comfortable well-appointed rooms. Rated comfort a 4 because the bed isn't as plush as some. It's […] not sub-par, but it's not "superb" either. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for a business"
Clean, quiet, good location. The staffs are very friendly as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very pleasant experience. Courteous and efficient staff. Nice continental breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A convenient little jewel in the neighborhood"
Having lived in the neighborhood years ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find this jewel in the area. It has a great location to the Beverly Center, the Grove and WeHo. The staff was great and the room though a bit small was really comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff was very friendly. Was always greeted in the morning when we left and in the evening when we came back - sometimes by name. Adequate breakfast; Wine Happy Hour was an added bonus. Close to Beverly Center. You could walk to The Grove and Farmer's Market but I would consider it a "hike". A very pleasant stay. Had an inside room overlooking a courtyard. […] The worst thing was the $24 plus tax per night for valet parking. Although somewhat typical in LA and there were no problems with it, I really think it is higher than it needs to be. Jan's Diner across the street had the best coffee I've had in a while - sorry it took until the last day to find it out! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was a great location for us as we were visiting our daughter. The staff were very friendly and accommodating! The room was very nice, but quite small with no easy chairs. Other than that, we were very happy with The Elan!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nicely renovated but not a fancy hotel"
My stay was perfectly nice and I have no complaints. Unfortunately, I thought the hotel looked nicer online than it did in person. There is free internet, breakfast and a wine and cheese happy hour in the lobby. All good perks to staying there!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel, loved the quaintness and location"
Beautiful boutique hotel. After staying at the Anaheim Hilton, we really liked the more intimate feel of the Elan. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Complementary continental breakfast and wine tasting was a plus. Not a big fan of valet parking....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elegant Boutique Hotel"
The Elan is a modern, boutique hotel in West Hollywood with close proximity to Beverly Hills. Very easy to walk to restaurants and shopping. Trendy Melrose is very close. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. There is a wine and cheese happy hour in the evening from 5 to 7 pm and breakfast is from 6:30 am until 9 or 10. The banana bread served one […] morning was absolutely delicious. The lounge area downstairs is very pleasant and you can also eat outside on the patio. It's also an attractive space to have friends or business associates wait or meet with you. The lounge area also has two computers available for guest use and space for people to work on their own laptops. The rooms are quiet, elegant and compact. The double double rooms are probably too small for a family of 4. The double beds are too small for most adults to share comfortably, especially tall adults. Plus, while the rooms aren't small, they certainly aren't spacious. There are rooms with king beds also for couples or solo travelers. The rooms were very clean and looked well maintained. I found the bed with a very comfortable firm mattress. The Elan is reasonably priced for the area of LA that it is located in. However, parking is expensive, but that is probably the norm for most hotels in the area. There is no gym or pool, but there are a few nearby gyms that you could probably use. Also, the neighborhood was very fun to walk around and felt reasonably safe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I booked this hotel based on the high ratings it had received. To be quite honest, the staff is friendly, the bellmen in particular very eager, but this place felt to me like a glorified motel. Very disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The convenience of the hotel to our intended destination was excellent. When we arrived at the hotel however, we had a hard time finding the valet and had to go inside the hotel to get service. Our room was very small and we were glad that we didn't have to stay in it for very long. Otherwise, our experience was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location an service"
Front desk staff were very helpful and location and overall standard of the hotel was excellent. Only down side was the exorbitant cost of the valet Parking in the hotel. After 2 nights we just parked out on the street overnight an paid only a few dollars as its free between 8pm and 8am anyway. I would recommend this hotel to anyone despite that small […] issue.
