Hotel Elan Is Calgary’s Modern Hotspot Hotel
This past weekend was my road trip to Calgary with my long time best friends and this weekend getaway we stayed at Hotel Elan – 1122 16 Ave SW.
It is the ideal location just off 17th Avenue where all the stunning restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques are.
The front desk staff at Hotel Elan were super efficient, relatable, and friendly. We had no idea how to get into the underground parkade and felt silly when we arrived in our 2017 Ford F150, and they kindly explained how to and that our truck would fit into their parkade.
We stayed in a breathtaking Two Bedroom Serenity Suite – it felt like it was nearly as big as my apartment! The two separate bedrooms each had a fluffy king size bed, ironing board and iron, iHome, flat screen T.V, safe, closet, and mirror.
The bathroom was exquisite. From the heated toilet seat (which makes me chuckle because it was surprisingly comforting), to the life changing shower and the giant tub, to the complimentary L’Occitane products – the bathroom had everything you wanted from a boutique hotel and more.
In the living common area there was a flat screen T.V, meeting desk that seats 6, chaise sofa and modern chairs, private balcony, and Euro style kitchen. I was amazed that the kitchen was stocked with cups, mugs, wine glasses, mini fridge, gourmet pots, Keurig brewer, stovetop burners, and microwave. It had literally anything and everything you needed.
There were lots of laughs this weekend but in the end I was the butt of the joke (besides my friend starting to order her food when the waiter was not there to take it) when I tried to get out on to the balcony. My friends had been effortlessly in and out but when it came to me opening the balcony door I could not figure out what I was doing wrong! After my friends watched my (humorous) tiring struggle to figure it out they informed me I was simply turning it the wrong way.
It was worth the struggle because our south facing balcony received the warm morning sun making it perfect to drink coffee and watch people enjoying their morning walks.
And I can’t forget to mention the delicious breakfasts served every morning – everyday had fresh fruit and vegetables, yogurt, granola, cereal, eggs, hashbrowns, toast, pancakes, juice, and a coffee station. They also have featured items like on our first morning it was quiche, bacon, and crab cakes. The second morning had french toast, ham, amd sausage. We were so well fed, it started our days off just right.
So if you’re planning your next visit to Calgary Hotel Elan should be the top of your list of places to stay! I can’t wait for our next girl’s trip, as this one is going to be hard to beat!
