The hotel, spa, and restaurant were all incredible! We had a wonderful massage while staying here and the waters were amazing! Now we know why people hve been coming here for over one hundred years! Great experience!!

They have completely renovated the Spa at The Elms since the last time we had been there, and wow is it fantastic! The Grotto is complimentary with the purchase of a spa service. It is this awesome place where you can relax, go in the hot tub, steam shower, sauna, cold plunge shower...and they have this great salt exfoliation scrub to use. While waiting for our massages, we got to spend some time in the relaxation room that had cozy chairs and blankets and complimentary flavored teas and water. The locker room had all of the things you could need- comfy robes, sandals, shampoo, body wash, combs, razors, etc. Then the relaxation massages that we had were wonderful too. After our massages we were able to go back to The Grotto and relax some more. I highly recommend checking out this spa. I will definitely be back soon!

Clean comfortable room. Bed was just right after a day of travel. Hotel staff was attentive to requests. Short drive from the airport. Be sure to use the grotto. Lots to do and see in the area. Short drive back to kc but manageable. You have to see this grand hotel.

Excellent spa...staff is attentive and the very nicely redone rooms were a great surprise ......this is what 25 million dollars looks like. We stayed on a Sunday and Monday night and have been impressed with every detail of this newly remodeled resort. The local history is great. The outdoor pool and hot tub area is great. .............We will certainly be back!

We got married at the Elms and had our ceremony under the gazebo and our reception in the grand ballroom. It was a great experience and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a nice, quaint, all in one spot wedding venue

Room Tip: The walls are very thin so you can hear neighbors and people in the hall very easily.

Went to The Elms for an overnight stay with friends to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Poolside in the afternoon with lunch and cocktails, followed by an amazingly generous 5th Floor concierge lounge cocktail hour, then a fabulous dinner for 16 made by Chef Kelli Daniels!!! The food here is amazing. Do NOT miss the breakfast either! The historic hotel is remarkably stylish and upscale. The spa was beautiful and the staff better than expected considering very small outlying community where the hotel is located.The food is phenomenal. Upscale gourmet comfort food with a southern twist? Stayed on the famous 5th Floor...completely uneventful as far as ghosts are concerned. If you do not want to drive all the way to Eureka Springs, but want a romantic spa, drinks, and dinner weekend? Go here!!! It is truly lovely!!!
