The owner of this hotel has taken great care in all of the small details that were provided over and beyond the average hotel.

"Absolutely great place to stay!"
I stayed here for one night and wished I'd stayed here the whole time I was in town. Very clean and modern and the staff was excellent and very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Thanks Amanda for your comments. Great to hear you enjoyed your time with us at Hotel Elan. Our staff looks forward to your next trip into Calgary!
A very pleasant surprise. The hotel opened in June, following refurbishing of an apartment building. The room had ample space. The crown jewel was the bathroom; great water flow from the shower head, and, a first for us, a lighted and heated toilet. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. A couple of restaurant recommendations were spot on. The […] neighborhood is kind of funky bohemian (that's a good thing). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan We are very please that after your long trip in from Austin Texas that Hotel Elan was your choice for accommodations while staying in our beautiful city of Calgary. The bathroom is an important feature when choosing an enjoyable stay and we are so pleased to be able to offer to all of our guests as you say - "The crown jewel"!

"Great neighborhood location - 17th Street."
Great neighborhood location - 17th Street near shopping. Easy walk to downtown area with great restaurants. Parking was not free - except on weekend.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Elan So pleased to hear that you got to experience walking through the 17th Ave shopping district and an easy walk to downtown.
"This is a great deal for Calgary"
Rooms are new - breakfast was good and was free. Internet was free and parking $18 a night. Nothing to really complain about. Would use it againGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Thanks for your review and yes with our value ads of complimentary internet and breakfast we provide a great deal for accommodations in Calgary.
Hotel Elan is a fantastic alternative to the traditional downtown Calgary hotels. It is right off the 17th Avenue strip with a wide variety of shops and restaurants. The staff and front desk are helpful and friendly and the room was well appointed with all modern conveniences. I would highly recommend staying there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan We have had several guests comment that our hotel seemed to be in an unfamiliar area yet so close to downtown. Then they arrive to our welcoming neighborhood where a quick stroll brings you to so many options for dining, shopping or just a relaxing walk before bed. Very pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you on future travels! Lewis
Hotel was very clean and well-maintained. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Thanks Steven for your time in replying to your stay here at Hotel Elan. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next rip in from Houston!
Perfect......the staff were all friendly (front desk, cleaning staff, restaurant) and the hotel was exactly as expected based on other reviews.....new and super clean, great decor and quiet. The price is a 'steal'. Our company held meetings at another location in Calgary and everyone there now knows about Hotel Elan!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A terrific little hotel -- the room was amazing -- clean comfortable, spacious. Would stay here every time I am in Calgary.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Exactly what I needed. The underground parking was a good thing to have. Very friendly staff. Beautiful room! Unfortunately the complimentary breakfast lacked any fruit besides dried fruit for your oatmeal. Luckily the location was good, 17th was right there and I could grab a real breakfast no problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lots of bells and whistles"
Cute, trendy hotel. We booked the single room, not advisable if you are claustrophobic but fine for a night. In the tiny space there was a microwave, mini bar, iPod Dock. Convenient light switch bedside and near the door to turn off all the lights. Not particularly environmentally friendly with heated toilet seat that also works as a night light, full […] flush toilet, heated floor in the bathroom and a rainmaker shower. Great breakfast, scrambled and boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, cold cuts, cheese, hot oatmeal, French toast, etc. The location is handy to good restaurants and shops. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Thanks Renee for your review. Yes in our boutique style hotel we have several room and suite types (ranging from 243 sq ft up to 973 sq ft)with the amenities you have noted. All of our guests are offered our complimentary breakfast with a great selection as you mentioned. I agree the light switch on the night stand and at the door to control the lights is great and I wish I had it in my own home. thanks for choosing to stay at Hotel Elan.
"Great Location with Great Service"
We had a great stay at Hotel Elan, Joseph kindly found another chair for our room so we could each actually sit on a chair. They were office chairs but at least they were chairs, not the bed. Breakfasts were great and lots of variety to choose from. All staff encountered were very friendly and helpful. Super location to walk to nearby restaurants on […] 17th Ave SW, underground heated parking (free on weekends) was added bonus. We will be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Since there is such a large selection of hotel rooms in Calgary thank you for choosing to stay at Hotel Elan! Yes our super location is very popular with our guests as they can easy take a walk down a vast selection of restaurants. We look forward to seeing you on your next stay at Hotel Elan.
"Just a fantastic experience"
I travel all over the world for business and usually stay in full-service five star hotels lie the Fairmont Palisser, so this was a bit of a departure for me. I couldn't be more satisfied. The room and the amenities were on par or better, the location was better, and the price was half as much. I'll be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Thanks for checking us out and so please to hear you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Elan. You are so right as to our location being so handy to 17 Ave. To hear that you are satisfied means so much to our whole team.

One of the best hotels I have been to. The room was very clean and had an AMAZING bathroom complete with heated toilet seat and floors. The shower was floor to ceiling tile with large glass door (gorgeous). The staff were super friendly from check in to check out. Because it was the weekend there was even free secure underground parking. It is close […] to everything downtown (walking distance to plenty of restaurants and other establishments). Will definitely be a go to any time I stay in Calgary. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very modern and clean"
The hotel is in such a convenient location and provides underground parking (under the hotel). The hotel and room is very modern, clean and beautifully decorated. The toilet is seperate from the bathroom but still attached so you have your privacy. The shower or bath is gorgeous. The bed and pillow are super comfy. The lighting you can adjust (dim, […] nightlight, bright). Comes with a microwave, mini keurig and provided keurig pods and a stocked (with fair priced items) bar fridge. Comes with telus satelite tv with many channel options. I really can't say enough good things. Whenever I need a hotel in Calgary again THIS hotel, Hotel Elan, is where i'll be staying.

Response by Hotel Elan No need to say more Helen. Just let us know when you have travel plans again to visit our great city and your next stay at Hotel Elan!
"All in the details!"
This hotel appears to be plain, but really is not! At first glance, it seems quite minimalist, but the small details make it fabulous. For example, heated floors, heated toilet seats, higher-end toiletries, rainfall shower heads, incredibly comfortable beds and pillows, take it from a good hotel to a great hotel. The staff are friendly and courteous […] and truly care about their guests. I will definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Well said Ashley! Hotel Elan was created with the true comforts of our travelers in mind. Simplistic elegance is what Hotel Elan has quickly become known to be. No two days at the hotel and certainly no two guests are the same so we focus on the details that like you say "take us from good hotel to great hotel". We look forward to your next stay!
We had an amazing stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Amazing is what we all like to hear from our guests! Thanks for choosing Hotel Elan for your stay in December.
I was supposed to have meetings (were cancelled due to the blizzard) in Calgary on Monday and Tuesday, and came in a day early to spend time with my daughter, who lives nearby. Room was small, but very clean and cozy. Bathroom was a great size, with a nice big shower. Loved the big shower head! Front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful. Free […] breakfast the next morning for my daughter and I, was great! Had everything we needed to get going. I booked my room through Hotels.com, and the $75 shopping voucher I received was a nice touch. Only small complaint, and it is a personal thing because I like a firm bed, was that the bed was way too soft for my liking. I will definitely stay here again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Chris glad you got a chance to take advantage of our shopping special and trust the $75.00 voucher got put to a great investment while shopping with your daughter! Our mattresses are top of the line Serta so sorry to hear that for you they were to soft. All of our friendly staff looks forward to seeing you on your visit to Calgary.
I had an awesome stay what I thought was really cool about the hotel was the heated toliet seat I didn't wanna leave lol :) The customer service was awesome but what I thought they needed is some sort of restaurant or eat in place for the evening. Other than that I would definately come back :Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan As part of our great customer service our front desk team is very knowledgeable to our area and the numerous food selections all so close to our hotel. Boston Pizza that is right across the street, 80th and Ivy one block, Chibo, 1410 and Moxies all only 2 blocks are all great choices. Let us know the next visit to Hotel Elan so we can assist in finding the menu that delights your personal taste!
"nice location and clean hotel but lacking in servi"
The hotel was in a very good location and the room was very clean. The bathroom was very clean and modern as well. The only downside about the room we stayed in was the small windows, and therefore not enough sun light coming in. The breakfast options were also very limited, which is an area I think needs more work in the hotel. OVerall it was a very […] good stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Thank you for your reply and most importantly choosing to stay at Hotel Elan. Our room inventory ranges from hotel rooms to our massive one and two bedroom suites with balconies. The window size of our turn and tilt windows in our hotel rooms allowing for fresh air access is 34 x 34 cm! I am with you that at this time of year especailly sun light is at a premium. We are constantly monitoring guests comments on our complimentary expanded hot continential breakfast. Let us know what you would like to see added to our daily selecitons of cereal, fruit, cheeses, breads and jams, orange juice, coffee, tea as well as a rotation of hot items including eggs, bacon, bacon sausage and hashbrowns.

"Boutique experience/reasonable rate"
Very impressed with the quality of the hotel and the amenities. Rooms finished to a very high standard (rain head showers, heated toilet seats, large flat screen TV's, granite/quartz counters, modern lighting, quality furnishings, etc). Available indoor parking and full breakfast included. Friendly and professional front desk staff. Only downside to […] the location is proximity to the downtown CBD office district- you have to drive or take a taxi. On the other hand, good location after hours being close to bars/restuarants.

"Great hotel close to the Saddledome"
I would recommend this hotel to anyone! It was bright, clean and the breakfast that comes with a weekend stay was so good! The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the areaGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Elan There are many options when choosing accommodations. I am pleased to hear that our staff were able to offer suggestions and information on our local neighborhood jems. You are correct - Saddledome just straight down 17 Ave! Thanks for choosing Hotel Elan!
"Great uptown hotel"
Very friendly, very modern, and very clean. Convenient location for anything central Calgary. One block off 17 ave, so lots to do and many places to eat. Weekend evenings are a but loud on the street, but hotel was quite quiet. Everything inside the room was really nice. Only one small window in our room, but many others had balconies and presumably […] a lot more light. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Elan So many dining options for our guest to enjoy and experience on 17 Ave! The renovation process included a total replacement of all of our windows and doors. As well all the interior walls were rebuilt with a double layer of wall and insulation to insure our guests have that enjoyable rest they deserve. So many options with in Hotel Elan as well. Our inventory consists of hotel rooms, one and two bedroom suites. The suites all have their own private balconies hopefully you get to experience on your next stay..
"Not downtown...but a very short cab ride"
Very much enjoyed the Hotel. Cab ride to downtown was $7-$10 depending on which side of downtown you are going to. As long as the room rate remains below some of the downtown hotel rates, I don't mind taking a cab.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Thank you for your positive comments on your recent stay. Yes with taxi fares so reasonable to access downtown Calgary, also our underground heated parking at only $18.00 per night (Friday and Saturdays complimentary to in house guests) or the option of choosing a Car-2-Go service soon to have dedicated parking in our underground parking there are several inexpensive methods of transportation in our area offering close proximity to downtown Calgary.
A Boutique Hotel feel and very modern, yet warm and luxurious. Excellent location, walking distance to the great 17th Ave restuarants and shopping and even walking distance (15mins) to Down Town Calgary. Free Breakfast, Apple Computers for Business use in Small Business nook and free and easy internet access. A must see.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Great to hear that Hotel Elan is living up to it's name of a warm and luxurious Boutique Hotel. We pride ourselves are being an excellent location for just the right mix of business, shopping and dining options all in easy walking access of the hotel. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Calgary.
I travel a lot and have come to appreciate a good shower. Don't get me wrong, there's many things that that a hotel can get wrong....but the shower is tops on my list. Dated, small shower with little water pressure and I'm probably not going back. The Élan is clean, modern and spacious. I dint use the gym or take advantage of the free breakfast, but […] I was impressed by the polite and helpful staff and great decor. Who doesn't love a boutique hotel. The only thing holding me back from giving this five stars was its proximity to down town....it really wasn't. I was lucky enough to have friends drive me around most days. But, the one big plus touts location is that Galaxie Diner is right around the corner. Awesome food experience and retro styling. I will stay here again just for that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Elan Thank you Dave for your feedback. Our rain shower heads treating you to a great refreshing shower are a great way to start or finish your busy day. The Galaxie Diner as you say is just around the corner and one of the great dining options in our neighborhood. We look forward to seeing you on your next stay at Hotel Elan. Lewis
