This was my first visit to the Elan Hotel and I was impressed. I have stayed two blocks west at the Sofitel and paid almost twice as much. I have also stayed up on Sunset at the London West Hollywood and paid well over $340/night. The rooms are comparable to these pricey hotels. I had an Executive King and found it well decorated with crisp sheets and large, fluffy towels, a robe, slippers, coffee pot, mini bar and a great flat screen TV. The room was quiet and very clean. The location is undeniably great - two blocks to the Beverly Center, about six blocks to the Grove and there is an amazing number of good local restaurants within walking distance - try the Kings Road Cafe for a fabulous latte and delicious breakfast or Swinger's Diner for just about anything. All in all, a great value. I only had the complimentary breakfast once as it was typical cereal, bland muffins, bagels, juice, coffee. The wine reception was the only thing I can honestly say was not good. They served only two choices of wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Sauvignon Blanc. Both were brands you'd find in the lowest shelf at your local grocery store - really bad stuff. The crackers and cheese were rather skimpy. But, hey, it was free. The reason you pay big bucks for the Sofitel is two things - the "name" and the swanky bar. You pay even bigger bucks for the London W Hollywood because of location, the architecture (which is pretty cool) and the Gordon Ramsay restaurant. Not to mention, both have pools and fitness centers. But if you just want a clean, well run establishment, no restaurant, bar, etc....the Elan Hotel is for you!
