My mom and I came for a girls weekend. We stayed on the 5th floor where you are given a happy hour of free food and drinks from 5:00-7:00 every night. This was wonderful. Lots of foods and so many drink choices. You also get free soda and water for the entire stay! Deby was the host and she was...

We were here for our annual meetings. The rooms are well furnished and large. The meals and service here were excellent. The building is over 100 years old with many interesting crooks and crannies. The grounds are spacious, well manicured and the pool looked very nice. The entire place gives off the vibe of a quieter more relaxed era, even...

Nice place. Room was fine, but no tub. Ghost tour was a little pricey but enjoyable. Spa area was very nice. Employees were helpful. Grotto was well worth the price of a massage. Breakfast buffet was ok- potatoes not cooked thoroughly. Beds were wonderful and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming.

I've read a few reviews from some really cranky people dissing the The Elms. I, too, brought my daughter here for a Spring Break spa day. I scheduled a few things for myself as well. I tremendously enjoyed the Sedona Mud Wrap. It was absolutely fantastic. My daughter is still having her "Ultimate" Spa package so I will add an...

My daughter was recently home for Spring Break and we made the trek to Excelsior Springs from Kansas City to spend a luxurious day together. We arrived for our 9 AM relaxation massages, which were on time but just average. We were both looking forward to that just-after-a-great-massage feeling, but it didn't happen. Massages were disappointingly average. Best part was...

Went to spend the day with my spouse and have a romantic get away. It was a Saturday and the hotel was busy with a wedding and multiple wedding party gals doing "spa days". Thankfully we had booked our spa services in advance. The room was nice / clean. The hotel staff was really helpful. They got me extra ice...

We stayed here for a special anniversary and I got a special hotel deal. We did not use any of the spa services that they are known for. The room was outstanding and very nicely redone. The outside is kept clean and nice. The indoor pool is unique and was nice. The town it self is nothing. There is literally...

My husband and I had reserved a king room, but changed it to a double at the last minute so that we could bring our 2 kids with us. They said our room wasn't ready when we checked in (at 4:15pm) so they had us wait in the lobby. We had to check with them several times before it was...
