We had trouble with the plumbing in the first room we were given. But, the staff didn't want us to have to wait for us to get it fixed so they upgraded us to a suite. It was a very beautiful room, and the view over the pool was awesome. The whole atmosphere was very relaxing and peaceful. When we...

Totally overwhelmed, the hotel staff that is. This is one of those really interesting and historic hotels that, if you like that type of thing, you'll think is great, appearance wise. However, be careful about booking. Find out what is going on in the hotel during your planned stay. It could make a big difference. During our recent stay there...

We LOVED this hotel from the moment we saw it in our car! We celebrated our 20th anniversary and wondered why we let this Jewell go unnoticed all these years, since we live only 30 min away!! The Spa is the BEST I've ever experienced! Going back again for Halloween!! The little town has SO much to offer and we...

We stayed at The Elms for a two day conference, but ended up staying an extra night to enjoy the amenities. The rooms are oversized and generally pretty quiet. While we didn't dine in the restaurant, we did take in happy hour at the bar. The hotel is over 125 years old and the bar retains the beauty and charm...

We tried this out for our anniversary. The food, the room, the couples massage and especially the grotto was everything we expected. we loved spending time in the grotto where the steam shower was a highlight for me. That said, the staff was barely adequate. The server in the restaurant didnt know about the dishes and was in no hurry...

I attended a wedding, not at the Elms, at a nearby venue. First the positives, the bed was comfortable and the grounds are lovely. However! This is a 'pet friendly' hotel. While that is a great idea, it doesn't always work out so well for those of us who happen to have a room next to the friendly pet. After...

The venue is fabulous. The gazebo was great for the ceremony, however the food was good but mostly cold. I think there were two weddings at the same time and they just didn't have enough help. Just make sure you are the only wedding!

This hotel is a total GEM in the heart of the Midwest! My most recent stay was for a girl's weekend. We had a blast lounging around the pool, doing the silly/fun ghost tour and getting spa services. Oh, the spa! SO amazing! If you get a service, be sure to take advantage of the grotto and do ALL the...

What a great hotel! Everything is top notch and it's a great to stay in a hotel that has so much history and character. Highly recommend doing the Ghost Tour with Jay. It's offered every night at 9:00 pm. So many stories that are fascinating - didn't realize an episode of the tv show "Ghost Hunters" was filmed here!

Looking for a 5 star resort for the week or weekend or just a nice quiet place to spend the night? Then stop looking and book your room here. This is a beautiful historical landmark nestled in the hills of Excelsior Springs. The history of this place is amazing and if you are in to super natural stuff the place...
