This property has been on my bucket list to visit, and I'm glad I did! The hotel itself is full of historic charm with elegant rooms. The staff is all very friendly and accommodating. The spa itself is worth the trip alone! I came for business and was able to work very comfortably from the room's little office space with...

A group of girls travelled to stay at the Elms to celebrate the upcoming marriage of a friend. We arrived on a Friday evening and had spa treatments Friday night and Saturday morning. The room was small, but nice. The beds were good and very clean. There was not a refrigerator in the room though. The hotel is beautiful with...

Upon entering this historical hotel, you get a feel for the uniqueness of this hotel. I could see why President Truman enjoyed being a guest to this hotel. As you walk to the check in counter, it is wise to go slowly and take in the grandeur of the space. From the burning fireplace to the little coffee shop it...

I had a lovely stay at The Elm's Hotel and Spa with my sister for our Spring Break.The March spring special was a great value. Stayed in a double queen room. Fine for our needs because we were there only one night. We booked massages for the morning after our one night stay. The Grotto Area was heaven and very...

My wife and I decided to do a staycation for our Spring Break from school. We got a room at the Elms and set up 2 days of Spa treatments. We were so refreshed when we were done we plan to do it again next year. The staff were wonderful. We ate at the 88 and it was delicious. All...

For an historic hotel, The Elms has both an authentic feel with up-to-date comforts. This is a beautiful old hotel that exudes a sense of early grandeur. From the tile floors the Model T Ford, and the ornate old cash register, you feel like you've stepped back in time. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. We did have a...

We had a great weekend at the Elms. This was our first time in that area, and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is charming, they have updated wo losing its historic feel. The spa was wonderful. I would recommend making your apt for a week night. We chose a Friday night, and I'm so glad we did. It was...

We have been to the Elms on two different occasions and it is the most amazing little getaway. The hotel is amazing and the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The Grotto is so incredible, perfect to just relax. My favorite place to relax is in the dimly lit waiting room for the massage; it has hot tea, snacks, and...

This was our second time at the Elms. Both times we stayed one night, got a couples massage and had one meal in the restaurant on site and our review remains the same for both times. The massage is always amazing and the grotto is so worth it. We spent about a total of 3 hours in the grotto. It's...
