I have stayed at The Elms about six times over the past 15 yrs but this was my first since the 'major renovations' were done 2011-2012. This particular stay was for pleasure with me/my fiancé /my son/ his wife on overnight Saturday stay. I could not tell a difference except the room decor appeared to be updated. Rooms are very small. A bartender told us much of the remodel was for plumbing etc. there were 2 weddings occurring which made for a VERY noisy stay (we experienced the same thing last time since thus is very much a wedding destination). The Lobby was crowded and noisy throughout the stay - the noise in the hallways from guests kept my son/his wife awake til 2am. The ghost tour we requested was poor (janitor Greg was tour guide) and not nearly as good (thorough, engaging etc) as the one I had previously. Service was really good but experience was less than it could have been. Slightly disappointed over prior stays.
Aside from the Elms, ate at The Wabash for - as always - simply fabulous BBQ in a casual historic setting - wine tasted at Willows Mercantile and had dinner theater at Paradise Playhouse nearby.
