My husband and I decided to stay at The Elms for a rare night away from our children. I was excited to stay, but quickly disappointed. The room and the bathroom was very small. The shower would not be a good thing for someone who is claustrophobic. No mini fridge in the room to store drinks. No vending for drinks....

The spa services were great. We had a nice romantice getaway. Fun atmosphere and very relaxing. The mattress in our room was uncomfortable but everything else was perfect. Great place for a romantic getaway or girls trip.

The Elms is a wonderful property with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. Their location is very convienent when traveling from Kansas City. The rooms are beautiful and updated, while retaining a historic charm. The resturant at the hotel is delicious, but exploring the area and going to a few local resturants is reccomended if you stay longer...

I love this hotel. I cant afford it during peek season but that ok. The pool area is nice and I like hanging out on the patio to read. The cell phone coverage is spotty but its a good reason to turn it off.

My wife and I traveled down sight unseen for a weekend away, and we fell in love. The hotel has charm and style. The staff bent over backwards to make sure our stay was amazing. Friday night we took the ghost tour which an excellent mix of history and oddity. My wife spent Saturday in the spa where she was...

It likely won't change as one of my favorite local getaways but my beloved Elms needs some love. This is a beautiful property but there is definitely a need for some updating. Stained carpets broken fixtures musty rooms.

My wife and I stayed on the fifth floor. It is definitely worth the extra money. Our suite was beautiful, very comfortable. They have complementary beer, wine, and appetizers for fifth floor guests from 5 to 7 pm. Everything was excellent. All the staff were incredibly nice. They went out of their way to be helpful and pleasant. We have...
