After one weekend at the Elms I left feeling recharged, refocused, regrouped. The staff are very attentive and the rooms are very very clean. The Grotto provided a relaxing enviornment. I especially loved the Salt Treatment and Steam shower. I must have done that at least five times over the course of two days. Parking can be a challenge during... More

I have stayed at The Elms Hotel and Spa several times, but I must say my visit Saturday, September 27, 2014 was my favorite. The rooms have been remodeled and remind me of a European hotel. The room had everything we needed, even though it wasn't huge. The bed slept great, the restroom had very luxurious bath products. The coffee... More

Friendly professional front desk, great grounds and building--go for a ramble and see the river and the chef's garden--and the feel of old-school hotel excellence from the shuffleboard court outside my window, to the Italian lap pool where you can paddle around while listening to Sinatra, and the terrific Eighty-Eight restaurant where they make a drink named the Pendergast after,...

Great hospitality. I stayed for a conference and was very happy with service and the beautiful setting. You meet Jay and take his haunted hotel tour! This is a hotel that is getting ready to cross over to 4 star credentials and it shows.

This is the perfect weekend getaway for one night stay or two. Perfect during Memorial Weekend as the pool is open and crowds are low. Enjoy drinks poolside and don't forget to walk around the grounds of the hotel. They have sand volleyball and a herb garden with a farm table that would be perfect for wine under the stars!

Visited The Elms Spa with some friends - we all had facials and massages. The services were good, but not excellent. We definitely relaxed and enjoyed ourselves, especially in The Grotto. The variety of saunas was very nice and the atmosphere is nice. The Elms won't disappoint, but it also did not wow us. The technicians are very nice and... More

I thought this hotel would be over the top expensive for all the amenities that are given. This was by far the least expensive on our entire week long vacation! The ghost tour was very interesting, and our 9 year old daughter continues to tell her friends how it was the best part of her summer. The outdoor pool is... More

We spent 2 nights at the Elms to celebrate our 35th anniversary. We splurged on a 5th floor parlor suite. It was a spacious suite, but seemed a bit overpriced. We enjoyed being on the 5th floor with it's "extras". Debbie was a great host and gave us advise on wineries and shops to visit. The Grotto was our favorite... More

Spend a couple of nights at The Elms for a meeting, and I am in love with this place! Although renovated, they have managed to retain the charm and atmosphere of days gone by. Wishing I had time to try the spa and that gorgeous lap pool. The entire facility was very clean and all staff I encountered were friendly... More

Great get away. Friendly atmosphere. Short distance to shops and wine places. Spa is fantastic. Message is the best. Room was huge and comfortable. Hotel setting is in secluded area with 5 star service. Great historical architecture.
