I stayed here recently on a business trip. The hotel is old, historic and fun! I loved the fact they did "haunt tours" nightly. The history of the hotel is extremely interesting and the spa was amazing!! The regular rooms were small, but have been renovated recently and still have the "old time" feel. Service was great (except for the...

Wedding was great. Our food was not worth what we paid and the service was even worse. And make sure about the price of your room because there were other groups that spent less and got better prices on their rooms.

My wife and I stayed at the Elms Hotel and Spa for an extended weekend. Excelsior Springs was a great little town and we enjoyed all the hotel and spa had to offer as well as an amazing staff. We spent one day in the spa and the next day we took the Trolley Wine Tour that the Chamber hosts....

This hotel is very romantic and has a rich history. The pool area is simply amazing. The rooms are nicely done. As it's an older hotel, don't be surprised to find them on the smaller side. Debbie and her cherry bread were amazing. Take the ghost tour if you get a chance. It is a fun outing before bedtime and...

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past, before the multi-million dollar renovation, and several time after. This hotel never disappoints us with reservation problems or issues with the facilities. Only on one occasion in the past, after having dinner in their restaurant when asked "how was your meal", we simply stated it was...

We stayed at The Elms for 2 nights and it was like entering another world. The hotel itself is so special. We enjoyed exploring it and the beautiful grounds. The lap pool and outdoor pool (and hot and cold tubs) were highlights. We enjoyed our room (after we requested a change as we wanted to be closer to the elevator...

Beautifully redone. Luxurious, but comfortable. Food is great and employees are professional and pleasant. Restaurant service is slow. It is obvious this is not where they make their money and it shows through their staff. Nice, but not interested. BE AWARE that this hotel is a wedding destination and makes it harder to be just a "regular" guest. 3 weddings...

What a beautiful hotel. Front desk staff was very friendly at check in. The lobby was beautiful. The free popcorn mix and fruit infused water was an excellent touch. We were in town for a small wedding that was held offsite but we had a dinner in the upstairs portion of the restaurant. The food was excellent and the servers...

The hotel was nice, the service was great. The rooms are clean, and with standards. The hotel is huge from the outside and is very mysterious. The grounds are nice to walk through, there is a cafe and tavern. You can also get spa treatments.
