I wanted to dine at '88 at the Elms and was pleasantly satisfied. We dined and some youngsters celebrating prom were in attendance. Brought back fond memories!

We have stayed here 3 times over the past year. There is always something to see in town and the restaurant is absolutely excellent. We were a couple doors away from the Truman Suite and I beleive it is open to visitors. Wonderful history.

I went here for my birthday weekend and not only was the historic building awesome, but it had a romantic feel at night. The bed was literally the best bed I've ever slept in. Planning to go back there soon!!!

We came for dinner while staying at the hotel and utilizing the spa. Great experience at the hotel and spa, but not the restaurant. Filet mignon tasted freezer burnt and had no flavor.

My wife and I really enjoy getting away from Kansas City once in a while and when we do Excelsior Springs and the Elms is the only place to go.

Superb service at dinner andthey were amicable to special requests. Delicious dinner!! Breakfast buffet was great! They appeared to be very understaffed at breakfast, the wait staff was overwhelmed. Do not know,if today was an exception, but i stead of eeling relaxed, the place was frantic.
