Hotel Elan, Calgary
Great Calgary Getaway!
We like looking for different nice hotels in Calgary when we drive through on our way to Edmonton from Montana every 4 months. This hotel was our best so far because it was not only a very nice place to stay, but is located in a very fun and lively part of Calgary with many bars and restaurants well within walking distance. Also, the continental breakfast was great and we liked the free underground secured parking too!

Very Good8.0
Only suprise i had was that when i arrived regardless of me paying for the stay ahead of time they refuse to accept the deposit of 250 dollars in cash or debit. Which does not makes sense as i made my full payment in debit. Otherwise overall it is a good experiance. Brekfast buffe is great and they will make certain foods on order if you request.

A remote hotel
Requested high floor but just given middle floor. Deposit 250 CAD on check-in is unreasonable. Hotel is in a remote place.

Great stay in Calgary
Very nice hotel in a residential neighborhood but one block off 17th avenue (restaurant galore). The staff was very friendly and helpful with how to get around and what to do. The rooms were very stylish and clean. Breakfast was excellent with many hot options. Also many items were changed the next day. Parking was underground connected to the hotel via elevator.Definitely recommend this hotel.

Hotel Elan is the best
We stayed at this exceptional hotel for two nights in September. Checkin was quick and very friendly, including Keurig coffee and teas, and fresh baked cookies, in the lobby. Secure parking ($18 per day) was below the hotel and very convenient to the elevators and all rooms. We had a relatively small king bed room, which had a large desk and chair but no room for other chairs or tables. However the room’s furnishings, amenities, air conditioning, and cleanliness were excellent. Even the bed pillows were labeled soft or firm, there was plenty of lights and switches to the same. Their was a minibar and Keurig coffee and tea maker. In addition to excellent lights next to the beds, there were small overhead halogen lights for reading in bed. The bathroom area was beautiful with plush towels and excellent toiletries (and even a heated, lighted toilet!!). There was ample room to hang clothes and an intelligent use of pull-out trays for storing of folded clothing. The hot breakfast was excellent with a large variety of cold meats, hot meats, pancakes, french toast, fruit, and expresso/cappuccinos available on request. The other reviews are correct on the excellence of this breakfast. The hotel is excellently located just off busy 17th Avenue, which has many bars (happy hours), restaurants and fast food places to satisfy any food inclinations. Wifi was excellent. All in all, for the price this hotel is easily rated as a 5!
