Why use HEISJ as an abbreviation?
During our review, you might sometimes see us refer to Hotel Elan in San Jose (22 characters long, including blanks) as HEISJ (5 characters long) for the following 3 reasons:
- We created the acronym by taking the first letter of every word (which was very groundbreaking, we know)
- We’re lazy and HEISJ is simpler and easier for reviewing purposes
- We save 17 characters every time we do this
So, just a heads up that we’ll be using this abbreviation sometimes, so you’re not left scratching your head and wondering what the heck we’re talking about whenever we refer to HEISJ throughout the remainder of this review.
Also, we’ll sometimes use HEISJ136 which is a combination of the abbreviation with the Travel Help Guru post id, which we sometimes use for THG tracking purposes to further differentiate abbreviations from one another.

Since a more affordable price is such an important factor for deciding where to stay in San Jose, we’ll go into greater detail on how we found the Hotel Elan offer at the top of this page, as well as other ways you can get a bigger discount, if you’re not satisfied with the price you found.
How TravelHelpGuru.com identifies the best Hotel Elan promo codes, deals, offers, and coupons
We checked sites like Booking.com, Hotels.com, Kayak.com, Travelocity.com, and Priceline.com for the best HEISJ promo codes, coupon codes, discounts, and coupons, and then presented you with the best one we found.
The only catch is that the discount you’ll get on HEISJ will depend on a varity of factors.
Why Hotel Elan discount rates can vary wildly
The price of staying at HEISJ will depend on factors such as the time of year (season), days of the week, current level of popularity (how booked it is or not), and more.
That said, you can use the tips below to hopefully get a great Hotel Elan promotional offer, in addition to the deal at the top of this page.
Use Google to find the best Hotel Elan coupon promo codes and discounts
This is one of the most effective ways to get a HEISJ discount, even though it can be a bit time consuming.
In a nutshell, you want to get on Google or a different search engine of your choice and do searches for things like:
- Best Hotel Elan promotion code or available promotion codes
- Most recent Hotel Elan voucher code
- Popular Hotel Elan coupons
Sometimes, being more specific can help improve your search results, but you can also try keeping your search queries for HEISJ simpler, like this:
- Hotel Elan deals
- Hotel Elan discount codes
It’s worth taking a few minutes doing these kinds of searches, if it gets you a better price on your stay in San Jose.
Use email to get a good deal on HEISJ
Another tactic is to look up Hotel Elan online, and if you find a relevant website for it, chances are good that you can sign up for an email list that will eventually push exclusive offers, discounts, and deals for it that are available for a limited time.
That way you just get a Hotel Elan discount, promotion, or offer emailed directly to your email address once you’re on their mailing list.
Find good deals on other places to stay in San Jose
The worst case scenario is that after all this searching, you’re still not satisfied with the Hotel Elan price.
This is still not a big deal, because you can easily search for other hotels, hostels, furnished apartments, etc. in San Jose.
In fact, you can see a list of other hotels and lodgings in San Jose here, in addition to HEISJ, if you want.
Or, if you’re feeling crazy, and you’re open to staying in other cities, you can look at a great selection of other Travel Help Guru United States lodgings here.
Questions about Hotel Elan special rates that can save you more money
In addition to trying the tactics above, if you can find the contact information for someone who can book your stay at HEISJ, ask this person (let’s call him or her The Booker) the following questions that can help you save money.
What tips are there to save money when booking a room at Hotel Elan?
In general, traveling to San Jose off season, when it’s less busy, will help you save money when booking a room at HEISJ, but it never hurts to ask The Booker what other strategies there are to get a better rate than the standard rate (aka special savings opportunities), as well as what the rate plan policies are in general.
How can you avoid extra fees at Hotel Elan in San Jose?
Ideally, you want to avoid as many hidden fees as you can, so it pays to ask The Booker for HEISJ whether there is an extra person fee, early check in fee, late check out fee, wifi / internet access fee, and in some cases, an additional resort fee.
Does Hotel Elan offer holiday promo codes?
Sometimes, you can find great holiday specials when securing a place to stay, and The Booker for HEISJ would likely know of any upcoming holiday discounts.
What holiday packages does Hotel Elan offer to guests?
This is a slightly different than the question above, in that you might discover a package that involves excursions, shopping, or dining in San Jose that save you money that way.
Does Hotel Elan have student discounts, senior discounts, or military discounts?
Here’s one of our favorite THG tips: investigate whether you can get a specific discount type, like a student discount, senior discount, or military discount when booking your HEISJ stay, since these kinds of discount types are often not publicly advertised.
Does Hotel Elan have any friends and family discount programs?
This is another great question to ask The Booker for HEISJ136, because getting friends and family discounts gets you instant benefits that is good for you but also them (since it encourages you to get more people to stay there).
Are there any special offers available for couples at Hotel Elan?
Similar to the approach above, you can ask The Booker about HEISJ couple discounts for romantic getaways, which sometimes works, depending on the accommodation.
How often does Hotel Elan release new coupon codes?
If there are, indeed, HEISJ coupon codes, promo codes, etc., then The Booker would be the best person to ask about how often such Hotel Elan discounts are released.
What are the blackout dates for Hotel Elan promotional codes?
This is a follow-up question to the question above, because if you discover any HEISJ promotional codes, they will probably be subject to availability, and there will likely be black out dates when you won’t be able to use them (like during the busy season) and The Booker can tell you what those blackout dates are.
Are there every any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals for Hotel Elan?
This one is more of a longshot, but it doesn’t hurt to ask the Booker if they ever have any black friday or cyber monday specials for HEISJ136 (assuming you can wait that long).
More frequently asked questions about Hotel Elan specials
In addition to the information above, the FAQ below can further help answer your questions about how to get the best HEISJ special rate during your stay in San Jose.

Generally, if there is an available code, you would go to a website affiliated with booking HEISJ, apply the promo code at checkout, and then verify that you got the discounted rate on your booking confirmation.

In almost every case, the policy is only one coupon code per reservation, which applies to your entire purchase, and we would be very surprised if the HEISJ policy is any different.
Do you care about more than just the price of Hotel Elan? (If so, continue…)
As part of the Travel Help Guru expert review system, we help you ask questions to determine whether HEISJ136 is the best place for you to stay in San Jose.
If you’re already happy with the price, and all you care about is getting the lowest price or the lowest rates in town, there’s no need to continue with the THG review system for HEISJ!
But if you’re like most people, if you want to make the best decision about where you’re staying in San Jose, you’ll also want to consider and answer the following questions below…
Remember, the more you answer “yes”, the better HEISJ will be for you.
How to use the Travel Help Guru system to evaluate Hotel Elan
The THG system for evaluating HEISJ is very simple.
Just consider the questions below. The more you answer “yes” to each question, the better HEISJ136 is a good fit for you.
If you want to make it more fun, you can assign a rating of 1 suitcase to 4 suitcases to Hotel Elan, depending on how good of a fit you think it is, according to your expert rating.
But that’s optional.
And now, let the questions begin…
Is Hotel Elan in a good location in San Jose for you?
Where you want to be located in San Jose is one of the most important questions for you to answer.
Of course, it all depends on why you’ll be in San Jose in the first place, and whether the location of HEISJ will be helpful to you or not.
For example, are you traveling to San Jose for business or pleasure? Visiting friends or family there? Simply want to soak up the sights and attractions?
It’s very simple: decide what you want to actually accomplish (what you want to see or do) in San Jose. And then decide whether Hotel Elan’s location is a benefit for that or not.
Does Hotel Elan have a pool?
An indoor pool or outdoor pool (or even super swanky rooftop pool) might or might not be important to you, depending on how you’re planning to spend your time in San Jose and who you’re traveling with.
For example, if you’re traveling by yourself on business, it might not be important at all, but if you’re traveling to San Jose with friends, family, or children, and you think you’d enjoy relaxing by the pool at HEISJ, it might be an important consideration whether there is an indoor or outdoor swimming pool, whether it’s heated or not and has a pool bar or not, and so on.
If a pool is very important for your stay, THG recommends that you do a specific search for the best deals on San Jose hotels with pools.
Does Hotel Elan have a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, spa, or spa tub?
While you’re exploring the pool options at HEISJ136, you might as well check whether there’s a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, full service spa, or spa tub that you might be able to enjoy to make your stay even more relaxing.
Does Hotel Elan offer free wi-fi?
This is a huge consideration when considering whether to stay at HEISJ, since people rely on wi fi (wireless internet access) for everything from business work to entertainment.
Travel Help Guru recommends that you double check that HEISJ136 has, at the very least, free wifi in lobby areas, as well as more private options for fast, solid, reliable internet access.
Does the check-in time and check-out time at Hotel Elan work for you?
Check-in times and check-out times can vary a lot depending on the accomodation, so be sure to verify whether the check in time and check out time at HEISJ works with your schedule, as well as whether you can do a mobile check in to make the process even easier.
Does the cancellation policy for Hotel Elan work for you?
On the off-chance you have to cancel your reservation, check the cancellation policy for HEISJ so that you can avoid a cancellation fee on your credit card or debit card.
Does Hotel Elan have good transportation options for you?
Being able to get around San Jose easily will probably be an important consideration for you, so consider the related transportation issues and questions below, and see if HEISJ will sufficiently meet your needs.
Does Hotel Elan offer free airport shuttle service?
If you’re flying into an airport as a way of traveling to San Jose, you will want to ensure that you can easily get to and from the airport from HEISJ, and if you can do this for free with an airport shuttle service, instead of paying a taxi fare, bus fare, or for some other means of travel, that’s even better.
Does Hotel Elan offer free parking?
If you have a car during your stay in San Jose, be sure to verify whether HEISJ136 offers free parking, because ideally you want to save some money by not paying for self parking or valet parking, if there’s any way you can avoid this fee.
Is the public transportation near Hotel Elan good?
If you don’t have a car when visiting San Jose, investigate what kind of transportation HEISJ provides to nearby sites, as well as the best way to get around, whether it’s by subway, train, taxi, bus, Uber, Lyft, etc, especially since a nearby subway station, train station, bus station, or taxi station in walking distance can make all the difference in the world.
Does Hotel Elan have enough beds for you?
If you’re staying at HEISJ with multiple people, this answer is important, because a single twin bed, double bed, queen bed, or king bed is fine if you’re on your own, but if there are others you’d rather not share a bed with, it’s worth checking whether you’ll have a couple double beds or queen sized beds for the sleeping arrangements, or perhaps even a double sofa that you can pull out and make into an extra bed.
Does Hotel Elan have good food options?
Depending on your needs, consider whether HEISJ offers a free breakfast, and if so, whether it’s a simple daily continental breakfast / buffet breakfast, or something fancier like a brunch or some kind of fine dining experience with exquisite cuisine and award winning food.
Beyond investigating your breakfast options at HEISJ136, you’ll also want to know what other food options there are in San Jose (grocery stores, restaurants, etc.), and if you’re traveling with children, bonus points for checking whether any restaurants nearby have a children’s menu.
Is the customer service available at Hotel Elan satisfactory?
If you’re someone who wants to be well taken care of during your time in San Jose, you might want to check what kinds of guest services are available at HEISJ, like whether there’s a 24-hour concierge service, 24 hour front desk person (providing 24 hour reception), any special services for couples, ideally a friendly staff with high service marks, etc.
Does Hotel Elan have daily maid service?
Ideally, you want HEISJ to have clean bed sheets and fresh towels, whether or not there’s a daily cleaning service, and if you need laundry done, you might check whether there’s a laundromat or dry cleaning service nearby if these services aren’t available on site.
Are you happy with the amenities at Hotel Elan?
In addition to being happy with the services, you’ll also want to make sure you’re happy with the hotel amenities at HEISJ, such as the business amenities, exercise facilities and gym equipment (whether or not there’s a 24 hour fitness center), whether rooms come with perks like electric fireplaces, shopping options nearby, etc.
Does Hotel Elan have good tv options?
Although a flat screen satellite tv isn’t necessarily the most important consideration, if you watch a lot of television and this matters to you, you might check whether your stay at HEISJ136 comes with a flat screen tv or not.
Does Hotel Elan have air conditioning?
If you’re staying somewhere hot or humid, you might want to see if HEISJ has air conditioning, which would make you more comfortable.
Does Hotel Elan have a bar?
If you’re the kind of person who like a hotel bar, lobby bar, or a personal mini bar in your room, be sure to verify whether HEISJ has one of these or not.
Does Hotel Elan offer any activities for guests?
Depending on how important entertainment is to you, you might want to investigate whether HEISJ organizes any activities for guests, offers special packages, trips, or excursions, whether there is a casino or some other form of adult enternainment nearby, and if you’re traveling with children, whether there are any facilities for children that would make your stay easier.
Can you bring pets to Hotel Elan?
If you’re traveling with pets, like dogs, cats, hamsters, gerbils, or whatever else, definitely investigate the pet policy at HEISJ to verify whether your pet is welcome and whether there are any additional charges if they are, indeed, pet friendly.
Is Hotel Elan suitable for special occasions?
If you’re celebrating a special occasion, be sure to verify whether HEISJ satisfies your needs, like whether it offers a romantic hotel package for couples, or whether it can accommodate group bookings if you’re traveling with a lot of people.
For example, if you’re dealing with lots of guests traveling to San Jose for a wedding, you might ask whether you can organize your wedding at HEISJ136 or have wedding guests stay there, as well as whether there’s a penthouse or executive suite that you could book.
Is the smoking policy at Hotel Elan ideal?
If you can’t stand cigarette smoke or any other form of smoking, you might want to check if HEISJ has a non-smoking policy, and on the other hand, if you’re a smoker, you might want to check if smoking is allowed.
Are there good health and safety measures at Hotel Elan?
After the coronavirus and COVID 19 affected so many lives, many accommodations have enhanced their sanitation measures, so if this is important to you, check whether HEISJ has guest safety measures in place, like physical distancing, regularly cleaning commonly touched surfaces, and other additional safety precautions.
Will your luggage be safe at Hotel Elan?
If you’re checking in early, and you can’t get into your room yet, you might want to check whether HEISJ136 has a safe, secure place to store your luggage until then.
Is Hotel Elan big enough for you?
If you’re the kind of person who prefers spacious suites and large, sweeping private balconies, as opposed to a tiny, cozy, less spacious suite without a private balcony, you might investigate how big your living space at HEISJ will be in either square feet (sq ft) or square meters (sq m) to verify it’s spacious enough for you.
How does Hotel Elan compare to other lodging options in San Jose?
Finally, it never hurts to consider how HEISJ compares to other possibilities in San Jose, especially depending on your needs, interests, and goals.
Are you a solo traveler visiting San Jose?
If you’re traveling by yourself as a tourist, you might want to check out what the best hostels or hotels in San Jose are for solo travellers or leisure travelers vacationing by themselves.
Do you want to learn more about the history of San Jose?
On the other hand, if you’re a history buff, you might enjoy deliberately searching for historic hotels in San Jose and staying in the historic district, if there is one, and seeing how it compares to HEISJ136.
Are the sights and views of San Jose important to you?
If you’re the kind of person who loves great views, which often come with a high quality downtown hotel, you might consider a hotel with city views that appeal to you, whether it’s from a window in your room, or from a rooftop deck or rooftop bar at HEISJ.
What are the budget hotels in San Jose like?
If you want a good hotel deal in San Jose, staying in a budget hotel might be your best option, and you can see how HEISJ stacks up against these kinds of budget hotel deals just by spending a few minutes reading some hotel reviews and seeing what you think.
What are the apartment rentals / furnished living suites in San Jose like?
Depending on how long you’re staying in San Jose, you might consider an apartment rental, although THG recommends that for shorter stays you look for a furnished living suite as opposed to a non-furnished one for convenience.
How much do hotel rooms cost in San Jose in general?
Also, you might want to consider how much a hotel room is in San Jose in general, depending on whether you’re staying at a 1 star, 2 star, 3 star, or a high-end 4 star hotel. You might also compare these prices to boutique hotels, since a boutique hotel can have a very different price range.
By doing this research, you can see how much of a difference in cost per night there is between cheap hotels that aren’t booked that much vs. popular hotels that are booked more often in San Jose, and make a decision about whether you want to stay in a cheap hotel or a more expensive hotel.
All these considerations will help you better decide if HEISJ is the best place to stay in San Jose for you.
