My boyfriend and I stayed for my friend's wedding, and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel was beautiful, the staff was friendly, the food was delicious and the ballroom for the reception was amazing. Great two-night stay!

Enjoyed the room, location, and Spa services. Everyone was friendly and helpful; Spa prices a bit on the expensive side, compared to other services in the area. They allowed us to start spa services without being checked into a room, and were nice about it -- next time I will schedule spa services to begin after I can be in... More

We went to a great ghost tour at the Elms while we were in Excelsior Springs and it was so much fun!! Highly recommend for a fun evening! Be sure and visit the Hall of Waters while in town and the quaint little town square.

We had a blast. Great stay. Loved learning about the history of the hotel, the water, and excelsior springs. Also had fun at Hall of Waters and brunch at Willow Springs Mercantile. We discovered the lap pool in the basement by walking around the hotel, had no idea it was there. Massages were good from the Grotto.

My husband and I were there to attend a nearby wedding. We were only at the hotel a short while, but were impressed enough that we want to return to enjoy it more. It was like being in a castle with luxurious amenities!

The hotel has been tastefully redone, but the decorating is extremely minimal. King rooms are extremely small but well done for the small space. Best mattresses ever! We did not visit the Spa, but it is beautiful and it seems to be a big focal point of the hotel. However, we did visit the restaurant 88 on Friday evening for... More

The hotel is great. If you plan on staying on the property there not many better. So much to do on the grounds. With the pool, hot tub, grotto and dinning all in house. Also a couple great wineries close by (Van Teal & Fence Stile). We didn't have any success finding anything else to do in Excelsior Springs but... More

Beautiful facility, great service. The massages were wonderful, the restaurant food delicious and atmosphere comfortable. We were upgraded to the 5th floor where we enjoyed complimentary beer/wine and appetizers in the evening. Lovely. Would love to return!

The hotel ambiance is grand and historic. The staff was super friendly. The room was small, but well furnished and the space well utilized. The spa massage and Grotto was fabulous. Also, we really enjoyed our meal at 88 Restaurant. Perfect weekend trip.

I went for an Art and Soul Retreat .So I did not use any of the better things associated with this Hotel since I was on a very limited budget plus this trip was strictly business . I would however recommend this Hotel for anyone needing a nice and quiet vacation.
