DENVER, CO. – April 30, 2018 – Two Roads Hospitality, the international lifestyle company featuring an unrivaled collection of truly individual hotels, resorts and vacation residences, has assumed management of The Elms Hotel & Spa in Excelsior Springs, Missouri as part of its Destination Hotels brand. Located 30 minutes from Kansas City and owned by Chicago-based Horizon-Midway Group with Horizon Hotel Group as its asset management company, The Elms is located 30 minutes from Kansas City, offering luxury and comfort in a historically vibrant setting with 16 acres of landscaped grounds and gardens. The property has served as a haven for travelers seeking rejuvenation at the area’s celebrated mineral springs for more than 125 years.

The property completed a thoughtful and extensive $20-million renovation in 2011, which included the addition of high-end design features to its 153 guest rooms and suites, the construction of a lounge area within the property’s restaurant and a vast upgrade to the surrounding grounds including a dedicated herb garden. The historic ballrooms of the property were updated and refined along with the addition of three new meeting spaces, all spread across 13,950 square feet of indoor and outdoor areas boasting spectacular amenities and world-class service.
The Elms Hotel & Spa offers three food and beverage concepts focused on regional menu offerings. For rustic American Midwest fare, 88 at The Elms includes dishes prepared using fresh ingredients sourced from local farms, as well as vegetables and herbs harvested from the property’s own raised-bed gardens. Seasonal menu favorites include hearth-baked breads and tarts along with spit-roasted meats served in a casually sophisticated ambiance. With magnificent views of the property’s ground, The Tavern offers comfort with salty snacks and traditional pub fare overlooking the outdoor pool. The Café at The Elms, sun-lit by day and cozy by night, provides a relaxing environment and an extensive menu including house-made pastries perfected by the property’s baking team.
Situated near the revered healing springs for which the surrounding town is named, The Elms Hotel & Spa has been a destination for those in search of renewal and refreshment since 1888.
