April G, Samatha B and Marianna are ROCK STARS! They know how to treat guests as very special VIP's. They are friendly, entertaining and make a guest feel relaxed and pampered. The Elms is a beautiful venue, a step back in time when people actually talked, walked and enjoyed their surroundings. Anyone with an interest in history, and ghosts must... More

They have a Dry Sauna, Steam Sauna, Hot tub, Shower/Steam Sauna and a Cold Water Shower. They also provide peppermint ice cold wash clothes and a Sea salt/rose pedal to use!!

The new and improved elms is nothing short of amazing. Keep in mind this hotel is from 1888 , and there is a lot of history here . The rooms are clean the bar staff amazing. Now if you get a cheaper room yes it is small , but very nice.

My husband and I have stayed 2 different times and have enjoyed the hotel both times. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and well kept up. For example- I went to the pool one afternoon and the lock on the gate seemed to be broken. Someone came during the time I was at the... More

A unique hotel with an interesting history. Our room was large and very comfortable. We also had a large bathroom with a walk in showers and a beautiful black and white basket weave tile floor. We especially enjoyed the Ghost Tour which also gave us an interesting history of the hotel. Don't miss the lap pool. It is a little... More

The Elms is a favorite "go to" for my husband and I. We love the history and ambiance. The hotel has had a major renovation but it still ahs that historical charm. The spa is fabulous and we find something new each time we go. The community of Excelsior Springs is struggling however there are some great restaurants and you... More

This was an amazing hotel once you become aware of its history of fires and flooding, surviving prohibition, failing during the Depression, falsely curative spring water, etc... The 5th floor requires special access with your room key and offers complimentary wine, beer, and appetizers during a private happy hour 5-7pm in its lounge area. The spa facility is the best...

After reading reviews we went in with an open mind. However we noticed that many of the previous reviewer's disappointments would have been addressed if they properly researched the hotel and area first. I called a couple of days after booking our room online because I never received any confirmation. They were pleasant on the phone while confirming our reservation... More

We spent 4 nights at the Elms recently and enjoyed our stay. We had 4 adults and 2 teens (all family) in one 2-queen parlor suite. Surprisingly, the 2-room suite was good enough sized that we didn't feel completely overwhelmed by the numbers, although you would want to do it only with family or close persons, and two need to...
