If you're looking for a modern boutique hotel, this is it. We totally enjoyed every aspect for our room: very comfortable bed and pillows, lighting systems, etc. Taking a picture of the bathroom was a first for me. It was exceptional.

Our bedding package and pillow menu of soft and firm pillows certainly is a hit with our guests. However our bathrooms complete with rain shower heads and heated toilet seats delight many and yes even pictures! So glad you enjoyed your stay with us while visiting Calgary!

My sister booked this hotel for my stagette party and it was incredible. The room was beautiful, very modern and spacious, with great details, from the delicious soaps, to the heated toilet seat, to the to-die-for rain shower and the different types of pillows. The service was great, with the front desk crew being very accommodating to our needs. I just could not be happier with this hotel!

Rooms:

Either a 2 bedroom suite or King size bedroom. Both are very modern with free wifi, USB ports, on-demand TV, microwave, percolator, fantastic showers, selection of pillows (handily labeled Soft or Firm), heated and night lite toilet seats, The suites even have a small personal gym, business area and balcony.

Staff:

We couldn't have wanted for more. Many thanks to Lewis, Michelle, Amanda and the rest of the staff, exceptional.

Location:

Situated right on the popular 17th Ave, there's bars and restaurants every half block serving great food (Farm & Cibo are great for both lunch and dinner). It's a 15-20 minute walk or a 5 minute taxi ride to the very heart of Downtown Calgary. If you want to go further a field the nearest tram stop is a 5 minute walk. In about 25 minutes door to door you can get to the Chinook Shopping Mall.

Food:

Breakfast is complimentary and includes hot selections, normally scrambled eggs, a meat option and pancakes/waffles. There are the usual cereals, porridge, bread/toast, sweets, tea and coffee.
Lunch and dinner isn't available.
On a Tuesday and Wednesday Lewis hosts a Welcome Night and serves complimentary wine, beer, sodas and hot/cold nibbles in the evening. This is a great opportunity to meet other guests and for pre-dinner drinks before going out.

Facilities:

Downstairs in the main room are 2 Apple PC's for your business use, underground parking at $18 per week day and free at weekends. Free wifi, 24hr front desk and umbrellas, laundry is contracted out but top notch.

Summary:

If you are coming to Calgary, stay here. I cannot recommend this place more highly.

Thanks for your help in making this a memorable stay!

Room Tip: Any 2 bedroom suite, you'll not regret it!

One of my favorite events in my schedule is the opportunity to host the Tuesday and Wednesday evening reception for our in house guests here at Hotel Elan. This is an opportunity for me to thank and welcome our valued guests staying with us on a personal one on one basis. As you mention this also allows for our guests to mingle. I enjoy the sharing of experiences on favorite dining out venues and recommendations between our guests! Thanks Rob for taking the time to submit your review and most importantly sharing your great stay with future Hotel Elan guests. Our team is all very pleased to hear that we were part of making your time at Hotel Elan a "memorable stay"!

The hotel is around a 30 minute walk into the centre of Calgary but is situated in a really nice neighbourhood with a number of nice restaurants and bars. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean with modern and trendy decor. It has free wifi, a flat screen TV, coffee machine, and microwave! The breakfast was reasonable. We'd definitely stay in hotel Elan again if visiting Calgary.

Stayed at Elan with three friends for a girls weekend getaway, and it was wonderful! Loved the room, (we had a one bedroom suite), breakfast was delish, they brought us extra coffee for the keurig, and not to mention the bathroom was great! (heated toilet seat!)
They gave us a late checkout without any hassle too. :)
Great location. Close to lots of shops and restaurants.
The only downside was the outside noise on the saturday night. The people leaving the bars were crazy loud, and the cars ripping up 17th ave till early morning were annoying.
That being said, I WILL stay here again and would recommend it for sure!

Our suites at Hotel Elan are certainly spacious. The Vista one bedroom suite with the king size bed plus a sofa bed couch in the living room was perfect for your four girl friend weekend get-a-way. On your next stay may I suggest your group try one of our two bedroom suites? These will have an even larger living area, two separate bedrooms plus a Chromotherapy tub in the oversized bathroom! We are constantly adding menu items to our delicious complimentary breakfast which you will be able to sample on your next stay.

My cousin booked this suite as a place to come back after a great night out! It was perfect and beautiful. 2 bedroom apartment suite made it so comfortable for 4 of us. It could have used a few more mirrors for us to get ready. Lack of outlets for chargers and hair appliances.
The suite was spotless. The beds, blankets, and pillows were great. The heat/air could be adjusted in each room. The color scheme was very chic. The bathroom was beautiful. Huge shower, great tub, seperate toilet room (which cold use it's own exhaust)!!
Perfect location to walk to the liquor store, convenience store, pub, or restaurants. Also a great strip of fun shopping close by. An absolutely wonderful stay. The cost was a bit high for my taste but it was a really nice treat.

How smart of your cousin to book one of our two bedroom suites for the 4 of you! This allows for much more space than a traditional hotel room or even our one bedroom suites. The two bedroom suites are over 900 square feet with two separate and private bedrooms perfect for two couples to share, making it more economical than renting two separate rooms or suites.
