We stayed at The Elms for a two day conference, but ended up staying an extra night to enjoy the amenities. The rooms are oversized and generally pretty quiet. While we didn't dine in the restaurant, we did take in happy hour at the bar. The hotel is over 125 years old and the bar retains the beauty and charm... More

We tried this out for our anniversary. The food, the room, the couples massage and especially the grotto was everything we expected. we loved spending time in the grotto where the steam shower was a highlight for me. That said, the staff was barely adequate. The server in the restaurant didnt know about the dishes and was in no hurry... More

I attended a wedding, not at the Elms, at a nearby venue. First the positives, the bed was comfortable and the grounds are lovely. However! This is a 'pet friendly' hotel. While that is a great idea, it doesn't always work out so well for those of us who happen to have a room next to the friendly pet. After... More

The venue is fabulous. The gazebo was great for the ceremony, however the food was good but mostly cold. I think there were two weddings at the same time and they just didn't have enough help. Just make sure you are the only wedding!

This hotel is a total GEM in the heart of the Midwest! My most recent stay was for a girl's weekend. We had a blast lounging around the pool, doing the silly/fun ghost tour and getting spa services. Oh, the spa! SO amazing! If you get a service, be sure to take advantage of the grotto and do ALL the... More

What a great hotel! Everything is top notch and it's a great to stay in a hotel that has so much history and character. Highly recommend doing the Ghost Tour with Jay. It's offered every night at 9:00 pm. So many stories that are fascinating - didn't realize an episode of the tv show "Ghost Hunters" was filmed here!

Looking for a 5 star resort for the week or weekend or just a nice quiet place to spend the night? Then stop looking and book your room here. This is a beautiful historical landmark nestled in the hills of Excelsior Springs. The history of this place is amazing and if you are in to super natural stuff the place... More

We had a great stay at the Elms. Went for relaxation and to see a band play at the Wabash. And it did not disappoint! The hot tub and pool are always something we look forward to when going to the Elms, Lap pool is very relaxing also

My wife and I love going to the Elms on the weekend for a late lunch. Its a perfect distance from Kansas City and we take the back roads to enjoy the journey. We are always greeted with enthusiasm by Laura. She is always so helpful and finds us the perfect table outside along the covered porch area. We always... More

My expectations of the The Elms went way beyond what I ever could have imagined. The Spa was the first stop and it was the best spa experience we've ever had (we go to different places every year). The hotel and grounds were absolutely beautiful. We checked in on Sunday and left on Tuesday. We only left the hotel twice... More
