First time I've stayed in this hotel (I visit Calgary regularly from the UK). Well priced, very pleasant staff, great location with restaurants all around. Breakfast also very good a nicely varied buffet - my single criticism is that I'd like to recommend that the hotel should provide two strengths of coffees as part of the standard buffet at breakfast, I have a European need for at least reasonably strong coffee in the morning.

I hope that the organisation running the meeting I attend puts me up in the Elan again.

Room Tip: If you want strong coffee at breakfast you can have espresso, but you have to pay extra (only $2.00) for it - needless to say I did

Room was clean with a fridge, microwave, dining area and sitting area, ALL staff was extremely helpful and seemed to genuinely enjoy having you stay with them. The included breakfast was extensive. I can't say enough good things. Don't hesitate or you won't get a room.

Room Tip: Book early

Loved our two-night stay at Hotel Elan - great front desk, housekeeping and breakfast staff, very kind, professional and welcoming. Loved the little extra's in our room and the magnificent bathroom. Really happy that this was our final stay in Canada after a 11-night vacation to Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper. Highly recommended for business and leisure travelers, great location near 17th Street with top restaurants in walking distance (try Heaven!).

All our staff take great pride in making sure that you have a great stay while you are with us. And being located off 17 Ave we have so many different restaurants within a short walk of our property, from Caribbean cuisine, to Venezuelan, there is a little something for everyone.

The location was perfect. Right off 17th Ave. Great selection of food in the area. Downside was there was a lot of construction going on but with sound proof walls I didn’t hear a thing. Will def be back.

Hello evera;343370,

Thank you for being our guest and taking the time to write a review for our hotel. We appreciate your feedback about your stay.

Our hotel is ideally located for anyone looking to just relax and not travel very far to get to a restaurant or bar. And all the little shops along 17 Ave have some nice little knick-knacks to discover. Unfortunately the construction is happening again and it makes things a little hectic for driving around our area. But the sound resistance in all our rooms makes sure you don't have to deal with all the noise of the streets below.

Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Sincerely,
Stephen Smith

This was our first time at the Hotel Elan; it will not be our last. This hotel stands out as one of the few that pays attention to detail. The service people were invariably helpful and friendly; from the lady who did up our room and spent time having a brief and uplifting chat with my wife to the staff overseeing one of the better breakfasts we have encountered while travelling. Parking was available under the hotel; it was in a safe environment. The neighbourhood stores were interesting as were the people walking by while caring for their pets.
