The Grotto at Our Excelsior Springs Hotel

In ancient Rome, Roman baths consisted of a series of rooms offering cold, warm and hot baths, as well as steamy and dry rooms, all designed to offer restoration and repose.The Grotto at The Elms Hotel & Spa is our modern take on a traditional Roman bath, featuring a collection of soothing chambers in which to relax and rejuvenate in richly appointed surroundings. Like those who, for the last century and a quarter, made the pilgrimage to Excelsior Springs for the curative effects of the area's mineral waters, you can unwind and revive, but in the modern comfort of The Elms' Grotto.
