This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Elan. This time it was for four nights. The previous time was in 2012. I was very pleased to see that the high level of service and amenities has not changed, if anything they have improved.
The hotel is conveniently located on Beverly Blvd in West Hollywood. It is about two blocks from the Beverly Center and with walking distance of both the Grove and the Beverly Hills shopping area as well. There is valet underground parking available which I used with no issues whatsoever.
The staff here are excellent. It is significant to note the familiar faces from our previous visit. Low staff turnover is usually a good sign. Everyone from the front desk, to housekeeping, to the very friendly lady who assists during the evening wine and cheese offerings was pleasant and knowledgable.
The rooms are well appointed with all the various amenities one would expect. Our room was on the second (top) floor facing onto Beverly. We found the noise level to be minimal with the only sounds of note were the odd emergency vehicles. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. One item of note worth mentioning is the damper on the doors to the rooms. There is nothing more annoying that the sound of room doors slamming shut at various hours. While the damper on the Elan doors requires a little more time for them to close, it goes a long way to reducing that type of noise.
The hotel offers a selection of wine and cheese inn the early evening. This is a wonderful opportunity to relax with a glass of wine, cheese and crackers before preparing for a night out.
My only pet peeve is the hard boiled eggs provided at breakfast. There are ways of hard boiling them that would allow the shell to be removed much easier that what is currently offered. Outside of that there is the usual selection of breakfast items such as baked goods, bread, cereals, fruit etc...
This is an excellent hotel. The overall experience is superb. My wife and I have stayed here before and we would stay here again. Highly recommended.
