  • 8 night stay

    "We very much appreciated the accommodations and the extra kindness shown to us. Because of the staff, our experience at the Elan Hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. I highly recommend, especially for anyone requiring close proximity to the hospital. Bonus: they offer special rates for...guests in town for medical appointments at Cedars-Sinai."
