Excellent time spent at the Spa, Restaurant and Lounge with family celebrating my son's birthday. Always a very relaxing time spent and staff is always more than accommodating. Very clean and inviting atmosphere.

This was one of the most well taken care of hotels I have been in, in a while. The attention to detail and care in all areas shows that the people that work there care about preserving the beauty and reputation of this place. We had a great time enjoying the indoor pool and hot tub and slept well on...

My husband and I stayed here as a brief getaway. We loved it. Just a tip - book directly through the hotel. We paid way less directly through the hotel than we would have with Priceline/Hotwire/Etc. The staff was just OK but the grounds and the room were fantastic. Upgrade to a suite. It's worth it. Don't forget your swimsuit!...

My family and I attended a Saturday afternoon wedding at The Elms. The room for the wedding was set up beautifully. (I would suggest that the heater/fans not kick in during a ceremony, however. It became difficult to hear when that happened.) Reception food was good. Room was a nice size for a party of 100 - 250. Check-in was...

The Elms is an incredibly lovely and nostalgic place. The history itself is highly intriguing. My family and I have stayed, enjoyed the spa, eaten at 88 and celebrated countless events at The Elms (Their New Year's Eve package is a blast-and affordable!) We stayed here over the past weekend and again had a wonderful visit. The only down-side was...

My group of girlfriends been going here four years and we are done after this year. My "hour" massage lasted only 30 minutes, the spa area was dirty, the therapist was rude, and the computers were down so you had to write your credit card number on paper. Who knows what they will charge. In addition the restaurant gave me...

We have stayed at the Elms six times over the last five year period. The staff are consistently welcoming, friendly, and professional. This time was certainly no different, and possibly a notch higher than previous visits. We stayed on Thanksgiving, so we were prepared to "cut them a little slack"-as no one wants to be away from family on the...

I am unable to change my previous post about the Elms, For some reason, I had only entered 1 star & it should of been 5. If you want to be treated like the rich & famous just visit the Elms. Such professional staff in Hotel, Spa & Restaurant ! Very well worth your time & money!

The Elms has a type of magic quality to as one approaches the front entrance. The towering stone structure jutting skyward with a wonderful vintage lighted sign atop the building. Guests are greeted with such dignity as if one is royalty. The check in desk set squarely in the center of the lobby attend by very pleasant and accommodating staff....

We stayed at The Elms for a wedding held there. We loved it. Charming rooms. A little on the smaller size but very efficient and comfortable for an older hotel. The restaurants and bars are delightful. The staff throughout the facility were great. Amazing setting. The whole facility is like a trip back in time. A few guests even dressed...
