Los Angeles' The Elan Hotel announces Lobby Renovation Completion


Centrally-located boutique hotel's lobby transformation features LA-inspired art and sleek, modern touches


SAN FRANCISCO, CA (May 22, 2018) - Greystone Hotels, owner and operator of a collection of unique boutique hotels, announces the completion of an extensive renovation of the lobby and guest room corridors of the The Elan Hotel. The renovations to the public spaces of the West Hollywood hotel are inspired by the vibrant spirit and sleek elegance of Los Angeles with the centerpiece being the addition of a collection of large-scale portraits depicting LA sports and entertainment icons of past and present. This renovation, complemented by the hotel's central location and exceptional guest service, will ensure that The Elan Hotel can continue to provide guests with a uniquely LA experience and will remain a top boutique destination in the area for years to come.

            "Inspired by the Los Angeles of past and present, we're excited to debut our renovation and original portraits that celebrate some of the most famous personalities of this city," said William Rabanalez, General Manager of The Elan Hotel. "We look forward to sharing the unique LA spirit infused throughout The Elan with our guests, who will enjoy recognizing some of their favorite sports, film, and music celebrities throughout the hallways of the hotel."

This refreshment of the hotel's public spaces was helmed by Jennifer Garramone of JMG Design Studio, a frequent partner of Greystone Hotels. The art pieces by Marcus Ross are located in the guest room corridors of the hotel, and feature famous individuals depicted in black and white with subtle pops of color: Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, Lauren Bacall, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Jackie Robinson and James Dean. The hotel's new color palette features primarily tones of gray with accent colors of black, white, and yellow, with new sleek and modern furnishings in the lobby designed to encourage a social and collaborative atmosphere for business and leisure guests alike. Also new at the hotel is the addition of two electronic panels from Daylighted, featuring a SmartGallery of rotating art and offering guests the option to choose and purchase artwork directly from a touchscreen.

Ideally-located on Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood, The Elan is within proximity to a variety of LA attractions including the Los Angeles Farmers Market, Beverly Hills, and "Restaurant Row." The hotel is also a short walk to luxury shopping destination the Beverly Center, which is undergoing a major renovation slated for completion later this year. The hotel offers guests a comfortable and unforgettable experience with impeccable service and attention to detail, with complimentary continental breakfast, complimentary evening wine and cheese reception, and complimentary wireless Internet access.
