I reserve 5 stars for perfection. The Elms Hotel came close. Facilities: I could tell that this was a Historic hotel, but it didn't feel old. The word that came to my mind was "classy". This was my first stay here so I never saw it before the renovations. To me the entire hotel was comfortable feeling. The only negative... More

Some friends and I spent a lot of money on spa services this weekend, and were disappointed. The pedicures were the worst I have ever had, and everything was overpriced. They made a mistake on our overall total, and it took an incredibly long time and two staff to correct this. They also add an immediate 20% gratuity to all... More

I have lived in Excelsior Springs for many year and then moved away, but never stayed in the Hotel until this past week. The hotel is beautiful and quiet. A great lobby and friendly staff. We got a room on the 4th floor with a view of the pool. The view was great, you can see the outside pool and... More

This hotel is a gem. It is world class luxury at affordable rates. I can see why people travel from long distances just to stay at The Elms. It is a historic hotel that has been updated so it combines the best of both worlds. We were impressed with every aspect of The Elms. The staff is super helpful, friendly,... More

I had never been to a spa before so I didn't know what to expect, but my sister goes every year and was my guide. We used the Grotto in the morning-the jacuzzi, the steam room with the rose salts (just don't put on your face!), the hot and cold steam rooms, or relaxing (sleeping) on the loungers. You need...

My wife and I took a mini-vacation for our anniversary to the Elms and I cannot say enough about the quality of service and amenities. The hotel itself just underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and I must say, they did a bang-up job. My wife's an architect and I own a restoration construction company with a history in the service... More

One of the best experiences I've had! The hotel is beautiful, updated, plush, very friendly staff, plenty to do without leaving property. We stayed two nights. Had several spa treatments - the lavender and eucalyptus baths, the hot stone massage, reflexology, and the Vichey massage. My husband enjoyed the bath but I'd skip it next time simply because the hot... More

A newly remodeled historic hotel close to Kansas City that offered a great escape. Beautiful grounds, great outdoor pool, large hot tub, indoor lap pool, and a great dining experience that added to a very relaxing time. Spa available. Staff is very attentive and accommodating. Stayed midweek and loved the quiet atmosphere.

My Girlfriends and I headed there 6/27/14 for a Bachelorette party. We had a blast. There was raining on and off over the weekend but the Elms Hotel and Excelsior Springs provided us with enough entertainment for the weekend. I did not use the Spa but a few girls in my group did and they had a great time. The... More
