The Elan Hotel in L.A.


The Élan Hotel is a fantastic boutique hotel in West Hollywood. (Nicknamed, WeHo, much to my delight.) Not only are the rooms incredibly comfortable, and with ample plugs for your electronics, but it also comes with free continental breakfast and is in a great location for shopping and dining.

The hotel participates in a great program called Clean the World. The program takes partially used lotions, shampoos, etc that are left in hotel rooms and reuses them. The reused products get donated to shelters and people in need. Pretty cool.


In the morning, head down to the bright lobby to enjoy your complimentary continental breakfast. The meal includes pastries, coffee, various teas, yogurt, cereal and more.

After breakfast, go shopping!

In West Hollywood, you are close to some cool shops. Notably, Flight 001, What Katie Did and Tokidoki. If shopping malls are more your thing, then you’ll be pleased to discover that shopping center The Grove is down the street, (shopping, movie theatre and restaurants. Sprinkles, anyone?) and mega mall Beverly Center is a mere 5 minute walk away.

The Elan Hotel is actually quite tiny (only 2 floors) so it’s amazing to see the attentiveness and comfort of a larger hotel. No wonder they are #5 on TripAdvisor with a 91% rating!
