I stayed at the Elan during a business trip. The Hotel is new and accomodations are very nice. A good breakfast is included in the rate and on Tuesday's and Wednesday's there is a nice happy hour. The hotel is not downtow but a Taxi ride downtown is never longer than 10 minutes.

The hotel sits on block from 17th avenue which has many shops and nice restaurants. Wireless internet is free and very good.

I like your title! "Nice rooms, friendly staff and quiet neighborhood"! That certainly describes Hotel Elan, our team and our location. I personally enjoy being able to meet our guests on Tuesday and Wednesday evening which is a great opportunity to really get to know our guests. Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review and most importantly staying with us on your recent trip into Calgary. We look forward to seeing you again!

Trip Advisor is 100% correct: Hotel Elan is the #1 rated hotel in Calgary for many reasons, and it totally deserves it! We stayed in a Cascade King One Bedroom Suite from June 22 - June 27. It was on the 8th floor and faced west. Since it was the start of summer, the sun shone brightly into our room until after 9pm and did not set until after 10:30pm. It was rather novel to go to bed when it was still light out and we enjoyed the long hours of sunlight during our visit to Calgary.

The room itself was spacious, contemporary and extremely clean. There were very tasteful paintings in the room which contributed to a soothing ambience. There was plenty of space for 2 people. The sofa in the living room could be turned into an extra bed, which meant that at least 3 people could stay in the room with tons of space for everyone. The small kitchenette was well-equipped with a fridge, microwave, Kurig coffee maker and plate & glassware.... like home away from home! There was a nice dining table as well. We made use of it a few nights when we opted for takeout food from the nearby shopping & restaurant district on 17th Avenue (tip: for good sushi, try Midori around the corner from Hotel Elan on 17th Ave!).

The bed was a comfortable king-sized with pillows marked Firm and Soft- your choice. We had read about the infamous heated toilet seats at Hotel Elan and got to experience it firsthand, definitely worth all the hype! The rainshower had the perfect temperature and water pressure and we appreciated the great toiletries and fluffy towels.

Breakfast is included in your stay at Hotel Elan. It is a typical contintental style breakfast with a selection of prepared items served buffet style (eggs, bacon, yogurt, cereal, toast, etc). I think it would be nice if they offered a larger variety of fresh fruits, but we still enjoyed our breakfast every morning.

Service at Hotel Elan is outstanding. The front desk staff was so helpful and accomodating. They are a friendly and service-oriented group of people. Thanks to everyone on staff for making us feel welcome. If you are a guest, please be sure to join Lewis on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings for happy hour at Hotel Elan. Lewis is a great host and it was wonderful to wind down after a long day with drinks and nibbles!

All in all, we were so pleased and delighted with our visit to Calgary and Hotel Elan. It exceeded expectations in every way. I totally recommend the hotel for anyone travelling to Calgary, whether for business or personal vacation. Hotel Elan is definitely the #1 place to stay in Calgary!

Room Tip: If you are a CAA or AAA member, be sure to use it when booking a stay at Hotel Elan. We got a membership discount for our beautiful room.

To read your review on how Hotel Elan is definitely the " #1 place to stay in Calgary" is very rewarding for our entire team. We do our very best to make our guests stays " their home away from home" as you experienced. So glad you were able to attend our in house guest complimentary happy hour. I enjoy this opportunity to meet our new in house guests and welcome back returning guests. Thanks for taking the time to submit your review and as I say you all make up our Elan chosen family!

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!
