I was originally suppose to go with a girlfriend but she ended up not able to go. I decided to go alone, because I heard about this spa and hotel from my boss and a few other women. When I arrived the front desk the women were very nice. I arrived on a Friday my facial was at five and...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on a weekend away, although we are actually from the neighboring city. I would give the spa and services a 5 rating, but I would only give the hotel a 2. Spa: we had a couples hot stone massage and a couples pedi. Both services were exceptional. The staff was friendly...

We live in the Kansas City area and have heard of The Elms for decades but we finally decided to stay there for a brief stay-cation. The building and furnishings are impressive. It's fun to step into the lobby and think about all the people who have been there for the past 100 years. Our room was comfortable and clean...

We stayed here 2 nights as part of a wedding party, although the wedding was held elsewhere. The hotel is over 100 years old, but has burned down twice, so the current facility isn't that old. Nevertheless, the rooms are small and have had to be retrofitted with modern bathrooms, A/C and electric plugs for guests' electronics. The walls between...

This was a unique hotel for a recent business trip. With signs through out the hotel mentioning fun looks at the history of the hotel, it added an element of vacation to business travel. The ghost tour given by Jay, was a very fun way to end a work day! I also enjoyed the lap pool and both indoor and...

Stay here!! The staff is so friendly, the hotel is beautiful and unique, and the European lap pool and hot tub outside (especially at night) are the best. My all time favorite place to stay! I have never booked an appointment in the spa, but I feel that day is coming very soon! Perfect place for a girls weekend, or...

The staff was polite. The hotel needs renovations. We stayed on the 5th floor for the deluxe treatment. You receive more for a better price at a Homewood suites or Drury Inn. The restaurants are horribly overpriced and bland, bland, bland. The portions are small too. Won't recommend nor revisit. Definitely NOT worth the $$

My wife and I are from the area and have done several day trips to the Elms and Excelsior Springs. The town has an interesting history and is coming along in terms of development of their downtown area. The Elms has done a magnificent job of renovating and keeping a very unique and distinctive historical flavor in the hotel, with...

We stayed at the Elms for the first time for our Anniversary. The room was very clean and spacious. We used their hot tub and enjoyed walking around outside. We took some time to explore the downtown area and local parks and wineries. I would definitely recommend staying here!
