My best friend and I went to The Elms for a mid-week getaway and could not have been more pleased! Both of our spa treatments were incredible and their Grotto area was as beautiful as it was relaxing. The menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner were all interesting and diverse with something for everyone; all three meals we had there... More

We have stayed at the Elms several times over the last 30 years. Many different owners and renovations with closings in between. We can't help but love the place even with many quirks. They service is generally good, however their tv ad advertises the upper bar, great place, however usually closed except for weekends and large crowds. Pool service for... More

Looking for a quick getaway just outside of KC This is your place. Wonderful hotel and spa. Onsite restaurant that is wonderful. Pool and grounds are great and the pool is heated and open year round. Indoor lap pool and hot tub. Great place for total relaxation!

The Elms Hotel is a great place to just get away and relax. We only stayed one night, so did not make use of the excellent spa facilities, but we did enjoy the beautiful grounds, outdoor pool, hot tub, and indoor lap pool. Also the staff was very accomodating, especially the concierge (I believe her name was Pat?) who gave... More

Two of my friends and I have been trying to find a time to get away for a quick girls weekend. Our schedules conspire against us so once we found a date we wanted to go somewhere special. I made our hotel reservations through TripAdvisor (first time and loved it) and I called to make our spa appointments. I received... More

Fun getaway with the girls. We came Friday and missed the wedding crowd. We took the ghost tour led by Jay (amazing) and had a lot of fun! The spa was amazing - the services were fantastic and the ladies/gentlemen were so professional. After this trip, I now know why I should splurge on good spa services. We want to... More

My husband and I enjoyed our time at the grotto, go on a weekday - we've heard Fri-Sun are very busy! Dry sauna, steam sauna, hot tub, steam room and cold plunge shower to choose from with very comfortable lounge chairs! The exfoliation bar was a treat, but our couple's massage was the best. Nice locker rooms, serene waiting room... More

The company I work for recently held its annual business meeting and banquet at the Elms. Set in a very unpretentious small town, the hotel and spa was less than what I expected, but much more than what I had imagined. Proudly boasting five floors (the fifth floor being the equivalent of penthouse suites, accessible only with a special key... More
