Super comfortable room and bed. Breakfast very good and plenty of choices. Very cozy atmosphere in room and choice of light brightness interesting. Warning : Parking $$ and view depend on room. Surrounded by buildings so do not expect much of a downtown view. Not walking distance from downtown.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 January 2017

Loved the location. Put my out of town guests there any they commented on the superior service and unique location. They loved the ambience and the heated toilet seats. Who knew!! They were a young couple so they really liked being near the 17th avenue strip of great restaurants.

Hello Pam1501, Thank you for taking the time to rate and review our hotel. We love to hear back from all our guests. Our location is second to none in Calgary we believe.

Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area and gave good dinner recommendations. The room was well appointed and clean. Hotel is near many restaurants and coffee shops. I liked that while the hotel is nearby restaurants etc. it is just off the busy area so as to be quiet.

Convenient (walking distance) to many great restaurants, pubs and shops. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Underground parking in the winter is a real plus. The room are large and well appointed. Always a fresh cookies and fruit available at the front desk - nice touch.

Stayed at Hotel Elan with my daughter, our room was beautiful and quite impressive. Room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast that was included was fairly typical hotel breakfast but also included fresh fruit which was a nice touch. My only complaint was that I like a very soft pillow and felt that the pillows provided weren't quite as soft...

I love staying at the Hotel Elan. The rooms are spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. And the location is perfect. One block off of 17th, so the noise is negligible. I love the one-bedroom suites - like a home away from home.

My wife and I were visiting family in Calgary and decided to stay at the Hotel Élan. We had previously stayed here in a suite as we were traveling with our youngest child, this time we cheaped out and stayed in a queen room.

We thought this a nice hotel and not knowing Calgary felt lucky to have picked it. There are many restaurants within easy walking distance. The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if travelling to Calgary.

Vancouver, Canada
Reviewed 26 January 2017

Comparing to other rooms in the city. for the price I could have gotten a better location and a larger room with a hotel that had a restaurant. Seemed to be an odd location for a hotel. On business, at end of day would have liked a restaurant in the hotel itself rather than having to go out.
