Made a reservation on July 30, 2016 for arrival September 22, 2016. We were looking forward to staying at this "Classic Old Resort". Unfortunately they had overbooked and had no rooms available. They wanted to send us to the Sleep In. Since we explained this was not a comparable hotel to what we thought was a 4* Resort, they reserved...

My wife and I stayed for our birthday weekend recently; yes we're born two days apart. The Elms is a great old hotel with lots of character and charm, but...it's old. Despite the recent renovation the walls are paper thin and noise from adjacent rooms and the hallways is considerable. In our case it took two phone calls to the...

We stayed in one of the suites for a week. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Our suite was nicely decorated and very relaxing. The bed was so comfortable. This was our third time staying here over the years, but the first time since the last renovation. They do have a restaurant on site, if you want to dine...

This is an awesome historic hotel and spa. The Grotto Spa was remodeled and is a great place to relax and unwind. We come to the Elms every year. The outdoor jacuzzi is open year round, and it's especially fun to sit in a hot tub when surrounded by snow. There is also a restaurant right on premises that has...

We happened to book a one night stay at The Elms on a recent trip to Missouri. My travel partner booked it and I had no idea about the property until we arrived. It was one of the best surprises I've ever had! What greeted me was a truly beautiful old hotel dripping with charm and grace. Not only was...

My husband and I went to the Elms this past weekend for a romantic getaway. We found the hotel to be very nice. Loved all of the outdoor space to hang out in the evenings especially with the beautiful warm weather. Tons of people hanging out around the pool and the gas fire pit. We did run into 2 problems...

This Hotel and Spa is pretty amazing. I highly recommend staying on the 5th floor. The extra you pay for being on the concierge floor is well worth the money. The employees are friendly and seem to truly care about the guests. The spa is a wonderful place for relaxation.

I stayed here recently on a business trip. The hotel is old, historic and fun! I loved the fact they did "haunt tours" nightly. The history of the hotel is extremely interesting and the spa was amazing!! The regular rooms were small, but have been renovated recently and still have the "old time" feel. Service was great (except for the...

Wedding was great. Our food was not worth what we paid and the service was even worse. And make sure about the price of your room because there were other groups that spent less and got better prices on their rooms.

My wife and I stayed at the Elms Hotel and Spa for an extended weekend. Excelsior Springs was a great little town and we enjoyed all the hotel and spa had to offer as well as an amazing staff. We spent one day in the spa and the next day we took the Trolley Wine Tour that the Chamber hosts....
