This a gem of a hotel! The refurbishment was excellent and the rates are outstanding. The grounds are beautiful and rooms comfortable and well appointed. This was our second stay and we were happy to see the hotel full and buzzing with activity. Congratulations to The Elms on its success!

We had a weekend without the kids so my husband and I chose to have a quick getaway from KC at the Elms. (I've also stayed for a girlfriends weekend as well. Both times were a great experience.) This trip, I purchased a king size room on Expedia. When we arrived they were sold out of the king rooms so... More

My husband and I decided at the last minute that we wanted a relaxing getaway close to Kansas City. In our search, we came across The Elms--and I'm so glad we did. We spent two nights and one full day at the hotel and spa. What a relaxing and romantic experience. I took advantage of the spa services with a... More

I just returned from two nights at the Elms with my girlfriends; there were four of us. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay. The property is lovely and we appreciated being able to stay put in one place for all our needs. We had a standard double room and as prior reviews have noted there is not much space... More

We went to the Elms Hotel and Spa a couple of weeks ago for my husbands birthday getaway present. As it was last minute, we went with our children and weren't sure how kid friendly this would be ( we later learned it was!!). We hadn't been to the hotel in 15 years. The upgrades were fabulous. Upon entering we... More

Spent 3 days and two nights at this gem located about 30 min north of KC. Was a little surprised to find hotel appearance to be a little dated compared to what was expected from photos and other reviews, but soon came to appreciate this as part of the charm that makes this resort so unique. We spent most of... More

The history of this old hotel is wonderful. Al Capone, Harry Truman, The NY Giants...the list goes on. We stayed in the Al Capone Suite. It was a great layout with nice decor. My 3 star rating is due to the bug problem. Some even hitched a ride. Not bed bugs, beetles and what looked to be roaches (haven't found... More

We stayed at The Elms for 2 nights for a mother-daughter weekend trip. There were 4 of us and we booked a standard room. with two queen beds. The room and bathroom was very small and cramped. We all agreed that these rooms would be better served to be rooms with only one bed. We barely had room to walk... More

We were attending an auction in a nearby town and picked the Elm Hotel to stay in. I thought everything was very nice. The food was good in the Eighty-Eight, the Tavern was a nice place to sit and have a couple drinks. We didn't get to visit the spa or use the 2 different pools but they looked great.... More

I bet every room in this hotel has a lovely view. Our room was on the first floor but still up a ramp so we overlooked the pool and gardens. It was lovely to see the fireflies throughout the gardens and forest. Speaking of the gardens, the grounds are lovely. We saw a huge owl sitting in the trees above... More
