I saw the Elms Hotel & Spa before its renovation in 2012 and I know its history. The newly restored hotel is fantastic. They kept the historical bits, while improving the spa, adding a grotto and re-doing the beautiful lap pool. The rooms are fantastic. In 2012 the mattress was so bad my back ached terribly the next morning. This...

We had several people from our city in Illinois tell us to visit The Elms in Excelsior Springs - and we are so happy we did! Before we even checked out we were planning our next trip. The four of us stayed in two adjoining rooms and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The staff made sure we had...

We needed a quick get away and found The Elms on TripAdvisor. The reviews were good, so we decided to try it. We were incredibly impressed! The food in the restaurant was delicious and the spa was amazing. They have done an incredible job of keeping the great old character with all the modern conveniences. It was beautiful and relaxing....

Just made my 4th trip to this little gem in Excelsior Springs, Mo. My most recent visit was girlfriends spa weekend. Very easy drive if you are in the Kansas City area and only about 20 min. from the KCI airport. Unfortunately they can no longer use the healing waters that were the town's claim to fame back in the...

I had room # 256 can't say anything but good it was a corner room which had a beautiful view of the back of the property on one side and a view of the Fish River on the other side. Pools are beautiful! Food was awesome! Go on the ghost tour with Jay, lots of history.

Great Hotel, with a ghost tour. I loved the lap pool. The room was large and comfortable. This was a business trip for me. The City was beautiful with lots of flea markets and great places to eat. The Hall of Water was my favorite place downtown. So much history and a free tour for ELMS guest and it is...

Prefect place for a weekend of pampering. Everyone I encountered at The Elms went above and beyond for an enjoyable experience. Cute, quaint shops in town but an easy drive into KC if you're looking for a little more. Will definitely go back!

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Elms. What a quaint little town and hotel, rich with history. You definitely feel like you are taking a step back in time. The ghost tour was also wonderful. Jay, the tour guide, was full of information about the history of the hotel. There are several absolutely wonderful restaurants within walking distance of the...

My boyfriend and I had never been to Excelsior Springs before. We were looking for a spot for a relaxing weekend and found it at the Elms! I found a great rate online that we just couldn't pass up and we can't wait to go back! The lobby and room felt newly decorated and everything was clean and fresh. I...

Everyone was very friendly and eager to assist. The only bad thing was the wifi signal on the main floor of the hotel, but it was beautiful weather so was able to go outside to the parking lot for signal. The signal in my room was great, but I was on the 5th floor.
