I stayed over the weekend and got the room on the 5th floor. It was a gift so I am not sure how much it costs but I was impressed. The floor can only be accessed if you are staying on the floor. you need to use your room key in the elevator. They have happy hour at the 5th... More

Love the elms. Was disappointed the indoor pool was still out of order due to the flooding the outdoor pool earlobe and the rooms are comfortable. Food can be slow to come out of the kitchen but worth the wait.

We go to The Elms for their amazing spa but we love the charming hotel. The hotel is clean and modern but they continue to honor the 1880's elegance and style. We like to sit on the beautiful patio overlooking the gazebo and enjoy a bottle of wine. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The pillow-top beds are like sleeping in... More

I didn't spend the night here but I did enjoy a wonderful tour of the hotel by Pam. I just expected to walk in, look around the lobby, and get a cup of coffee but I got a full on tour of this beautiful hotel and it's long history.

The grounds are gorgeous, and the front desk personnel were outstanding. We attended a wedding and were surprised by the outstanding banquet food. Staff were quick to help when a couple accidents happened before the wedding and during the reception.

Lots of old history, with elegance and style. Just across the street from the infamous Wabash barbecue restaurant where good food and a good time is always present. Parking is tight, but only to allow more on site amenities. The Excelsior Springs area has lots of history. The recent renovation of the elms hotel has brought it up to the... More

However, this visit left me just a tad disappointed. The hospitality and warmth that I experienced during my last visit was missing during my most recent stay at The Elms. The grounds were in disrepair, but to be fair, they had experienced severe flooding earlier this summer. The room was gorgeous, and overall it was a wonderful experience. Will definitely... More

We had a great stay at the Elms hotel. It's a hotel over 100 years old, and they use a lot of the old items to decorate the hotel. We had a double queen rooI rm and it was a nice size. The outdoor pool and hot tub was really nice, and the grounds are beautiful. A lot of hype... More

Was hoping to surprise my spouse with a romantic getaway for a night at a unique resort spa. The Elms Hotel and Spa looked like it had it all. We got the "Romantic Package", which included a one night stay, valet service, robes, wine, and a couples massage. First off, no valet service. Check-in was at 4:00pm, and our reservation... More
