Amazing property no matter what, but this time of year fires are roaring and it's decorated to the hilt, as if the architecture isn't enough. Just stepping in takes me to another place in time. I cant say enough about the rooms, staff, grounds, restaurant or bar. Amazing place to be.

My wife and I were looking for a place to have a quite stay and a relaxing setting, but not too far from Kansas City. The Elms was perfect. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, the facility is like a Swiss chalet and nestled and a beautiful quiet setting. We will gladly come back.

We loved our experience at the Elms! The front desk and spa staff were friendlying and helpful. We enjoyed the room and the spa! The grotto is a little expensive for what you get but if you are doing a service it's totally worth it! I got my hair cut and styled for $40 then had access to the grotto... More

My husband suggested a spa day for my 50th birthday. I booked our treatments online and was called with confirmation and reminders. The spa is located in the basement of a beautiful historic hotel. Staff were professional and friendly. The massage tables were amazing, the best part was the grotto which we had access to with our service. It was... More

The spa was really great always good. We had a mix up upon arrival which they immediately fixed and made right. The spa and the the spa manager are fantastic. Ask for Toy for a facial. The grotto is so nice and relaxing with many options.The breakfast was very nice. We didn't have dinner there but instead walked over to... More

Really enjoyed our stay. The hotel has alot of history and ghost stories! Our room was awesome. Very clean updated. The bed is a memory foam. That took a little bit to adjust to. Almost everyone was very nice. Loved sitting by the fire place and eating a snack which was very good. We had an office party and they... More

A unique boutique hotel, well updated and rich in history. Had dinner at the bar and enjoyed the best ever Old Fashion prepared by a professional in mixology! I was originally planning to stay in KC at the usual business type hotels, but after a quick scan of my travel app options I called about that evenings availability and was... More

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. The spa is incredible, dinner was great, sweet wedding was taking place on the grounds so the atmosphere was nice. Room was just okay but the rest definitely made up for it.

We had a good stay here. The rooms were clean. They are smaller than what they appear to be in the pictures. The bathroom was small but adequate. They have nice, good-sized TVs in every room. The coffee maker in the rooms is a small Keurig machine with 2 coffee and 2 green tea k-cups. This was nice but I... More

I've been going to the Elms for getaway weekends with my friends for a few years, and we ended up choosing this location for our wedding event. We were thrilled with our choice! The wedding coordinator, staff, 5th floor lounge host and bartenders went out of their way to make sure our guests felt comfortable and had a great time.... More
