How was our stay? Meh. Not amazing but not awful. Upon arrival we were greeted in a monotone manner. Not enough to be rude but not welcoming. We had a standard room with two queen beds. It was very small and only has a shower, no tub. The mattresses and pillows are amazing though; best hotel mattress ever! I would...

Our first experience at the Elms, and we will be back. Not to far from home, but far enough to totally relax. Spa and grotto are must dos. Not too many dining options in the town, but its so nice, you dont want to leave to venture out!

I needed a mental break from my stressful world and I got it at the Elms Hotel and Spa! Everything was amazing - The outdoor pool was filled with people sipping cocktails and enjoying life. The heated indoor lap pool/hot tub was dark and relaxing. The restaurant was pleasant and although the menu was very limited, the chef was able...

When you first walk in to The Elms, you are vaguely reminded of The Stanley, made famous by Jack Nicholson in The Shining. "Here's Johnny." In fact, when we were checking in to the hotel they were actually playing "Nearer My God to Thee" in the lobby. A little odd. But have no fear, the staff is very competent, the...

It's a very nice facility. Our room was excellent. Very clean and well appointed. The pool and the grounds are wonderful. Unfortunately, we stayed away from the hot tub because a group of people who were smoking and obviously brought in their own beer cans did not make it looking too inviting. We also had to endure a neighbor's late...

My husband and I came to The Elms with high expectations and they were not met. We booked the anniversary package, but none of the extras were in our room. We went down to the front desk as we were headed out to dinner and the front desk attendant asked us if we are sure we booked it. Then as...

My husband and I had a lovely time at the Elms Hotel. We were wanting a last minute weekend getaway. We booked through the hotel's website and paid 188.00 without taxes for a basic King room. We arrived early on July 30th at 12:30 to swim before check-in and were greeted by a friendly bellboy who offered to park our...

This a gem of a hotel! The refurbishment was excellent and the rates are outstanding. The grounds are beautiful and rooms comfortable and well appointed. This was our second stay and we were happy to see the hotel full and buzzing with activity. Congratulations to The Elms on its success!

We had a weekend without the kids so my husband and I chose to have a quick getaway from KC at the Elms. (I've also stayed for a girlfriends weekend as well. Both times were a great experience.) This trip, I purchased a king size room on Expedia. When we arrived they were sold out of the king rooms so...

My husband and I decided at the last minute that we wanted a relaxing getaway close to Kansas City. In our search, we came across The Elms--and I'm so glad we did. We spent two nights and one full day at the hotel and spa. What a relaxing and romantic experience. I took advantage of the spa services with a...
