The renovations are superb! The 5th floor is the only floor to stay on in my opinion. The turndown service and private area for evening drinks is beautiful. The restaurant was excellent. This will most likely be a spot that we will continue to come to when we are celebrating our anniversary. We spent an entire day in the spa.... More

Only stayed for one night so did not get to use the spa facilities but the room was very nice, comfortable and clean. Shower big enough for one, two would be tight. The restaurant and bar downstairs is very good, food tasted great and was decent priced for this type of hotel. Bar was small but really is intended to... More

I loved the Elms! It was a perfect getaway! The room was so clean and nice. LOVED the hot tub outside--it was chilly getting in and out but so worth it. The staff was great too. The ghost tour was a lot of fun. We did not do the spa this time, but plan to do it next time. After... More

First, kudos to whoever took over this old hotel and renovated it. It is now basking in it's former glory and is closer to what I always thought it could be. The hotel is beautiful and is not like any place else. The rooms are elegant and have been redecorated tastefully. The indoor and outdoor pools are both lovely and... More

We attended a wedding at The Elms and we had a wonderful time. The ceremony and reception were both on property and the staff did a fantastic job. I just love the history The Elms has as well as the property it's self is just.....cool. Our highlights were; the outdoor hot tub-take a drink down and enjoy the six foot... More

We enjoy historical hotels. The Elms was an enjoyable and sensual experience. With only one night for a getaway, we scheduled the spa experience for arrival day. The spa grotto exceeds expectations of superb relaxation . The massages rank as some of the best in my massage history. The king bed room ambiance was modern with the technology features, but...

Forget about Vegas, the Elms has everything you would need to host a group of ladies for a weekend getaway. First-class service paired with a spa to die for you will forget the rest of the world exists. The hotel has recently been redone and you can tell that they paid attention to all the details, thankfully though, the old-school... More

The room rates are reasonable and the spa is a world-class facility. It is nice to see renovation dollars put to good use in a historic hotel. Be sure to get a massage during your visit and spend some time in the grotto.

We spent one night at The Elms on our way to Arkansas. It was the best night that I've ever spent and slept away from home. Breton and Samantha (blonde) were absolutely wonderful at check in; very friendly, helpful and informative. We booked a standard King room. At first, the room seemed a bit small. However, it was so beautifully... More
