Friendly, Helpful Staff!

well kept secret.
Great hidden gem. We love taking short stays at this place. Close to home and reasonably priced. Love the old school feel. The rooms are up to date, comfortable and well done. Service in the restaurant can be slow and you need to book ahead of time. The food is very good and the restaurant itself is very cool with murals and furnishings harkening back to the hay days of presidential and mobster patronage. The outdoor pool is pretty cool and the grounds are good for a evening stroll . The indoor pool is ultracool and the spa is first rate. I’m torn about talking the place up too much, because I don’t want the secret out.

When we checked into our room there was a dirty towel laying on bench and the bar of soap had been open and used. I called the front desk and the apologized and said they thought maybe someone was given that room but then moved to another room. They had housekeeping come and immediately refresh our room While we were gone out. Great spa

Second honeymoon
I really enjoyed this historic location but would shy from the hotel restaurant. It’s really pricey for pedestrian food.
Christopher, us3 night trip
Very Good 8.0
It was an enjoyable stay. The restaurants served great food and we really liked the spa. The ghost tour was fun. It was pretty loud throughout the night and into the morning. Lotsa music playing out at the pool all night long. Seems like a party crowd likes to come here.

Love The Elms
My husband and I were there celebrating our anniversary. We have stayed at The Elms several times and consider it our little escape from the city. It's always amazing and highly recommend it for a little couples escape!

Property tired
Have always enjoyed this historical hotel. However have noticed in my recent stay that property especially the rooms are n need of updating and the hotel overall wasn’t up to clean standards. The spa and grotto was still amazing as always. Overall still a beautiful place just really needs a fresh facelift and a good cleaning.

Great Hotel for a Special Occasion
We loved this hotel and the spa, along with its amenities. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. History buffs, romantics and anyone who loves a massage will enjoy staying here. And, the food was fabulous.
