Living in the area, I'd heard good and bad impressions of the Elms Hotel over the years. Thus I think my expectations were a little low since I wasn't sure how it would be. I must say overall it was great. The spa part looks brand new (still) and is really well done. The rooms and hotel interior are well... More

Excellent hotel with awesome food and services. Couples can enjoy it for a getaway. Families can also enjoy for many activities to do! This is a fantastic place for a wedding reception or family reunion as well. A neat little secret tucked away in Excelsior Springs, MO!

We've stayed here for a few years now and enjoy it immensely. It's the combination of sophistication, charm, and history without being fussy or pretentious. It's an old hotel and they've done a wonderful job of keeping it updated without losing the charm. The outdoor pool area is great with real towels. No skimpy white little hand towels to dry... More

Wow. We all (me, my wife and two girls, 7 & 5) love this hotel. From the great smell of eucalyptus in the lobby to the beautiful room, everything was amazing. The renovation kept all of the beautiful details of the property. Very tastefully done. Even the free lemonade in the lobby was fabulous. Nice touches everywhere. The pool was... More

Everyone must use the spa. What a relaxing time we had. My body felt so wonderful. The Vichy shower is a must for everyone. If you've never had tis service, you most definitely need to try it. And the food was to die for. Their new chef is masterful. Great for weddings and business meetings.

it was my sister's and mine first vacation by ourselves. It is the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The pool and the spa were fantastic. It is a great place to splurge and relax. We ended up extending our stay three different times because we did not want to leave. Everyone is extremely friendly and polite. The staff... More

Some friends and I stayed one night at the hotel, but we came for the spa. The hotel is beautiful, wonderful outdoor pool, path to walk, and an interesting ghost tour. The spa is first rate and we all had great experiences and enjoyed the spa treatments. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. Come and enjoy... More

A Hotel with charm in a quaint little town. The premises are relaxing and beautiful. Rooms are nice, clean and neat. Comfy beds. Bathrooms are not very large. Might be a little pricey. Great place to have a wedding.

Amazing place for a weekend get away. Went last minute for valentines and now we are heading back for a little summer fun in the pool. Spent hours relaxing at the spa. Bath ritual and relaxation massage were heavenly. Love the cocktails at the bar. Walls are a little thin, but it's an old place that's been updated.

My husband and I was lucky enough to find this place while searching for a really nice place to get away for a few days while our boys went to church camp.
