For the top price they charge, most of the amenities were broke and not working, since Hyatt took over it has gone seriously down hill. It is not worth the stay.

Property was exactly what we expected. A historical experience with class. We enjoyed using the outdoor pool and hit tub and felt very relaxed during our stay. We wished we could have stayed longer. There is a lot to do and see on the property. Next visit it will be our focus.

The property was great, really enjoyed our stay. The quality of the service at the 88 restaurant was subpar at best. The food there was just ok. The ghost tour was exceptional. Jay was a highlight of the stay. The spa was also exceptional. We enjoyed our time at the Elms.
