The Capital Hotel in Little Rock, Arkansas

With palatial accommodations steeped in Southern tradition, the Capital Hotel has earned its renown as "the front porch of Little Rock." Its grand opening in 1870 was indeed grand, with the first electric light fixture installed in a hotel in the South and an elevator massive enough to carry a horse. Since then, this Arkansas institution, a Preferred Boutique property, part of the Preferred Hotel Group, has served as both a welcome respite with luxurious rooms and delectable cuisine and a doorway to the illustrious historic monuments and dynamic contemporary culture of the region for business and leisure travelers alike. Ninety-four lavish rooms, including 15 semi-suites and four suites, envelope guests with designer linens, free Wi-Fi and, from most windows, expansive views of downtown Little Rock. Dine on-site in the elegant Ashley's restaurant or socialize with the city's movers and shakers at the Capital Bar and Grill. Both feature Chef Lee Richardson's "New Americana Cuisine," menus handcrafted from local and seasonal ingredients with cutting-edge techniques.

Just steps from key business venues, including the Statehouse Convention Center, and vital local landmarks, such as the Clinton Library, the Arkansas Arts Center and the Historic Arkansas Museum, The Capital is a hub for visitors seeking the ultimate Little Rock experience. Posh boutiques and eclectic eateries can be found just outside the door, and River Market, the city's vibrant entertainment destination, is a pleasant walk down Markham Street. Visit the Downtown Fitness Center right across the street from The Capital for a rejuvenating workout—admission is complimentary to hotel patrons. Active guests will also find plenty of adventure in the outdoors, from golf and tennis to hiking, fishing, hunting and kayaking - the concierge at The Capital will be happy to arrange half- to full-day excursions. Whether business or pleasure brings you to the city, the "Grand Dame" of downtown Little Rock is a "capital" headquarters for your stay.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff was incredible! A local LR couple recommended the Capital for a two night stay we had a blast in the downtown area. The hotel lounge was staffed with first rate mixologists. I highly recommend their Old Fashion! After drinks we explored the downtown area restaurants and music venues. Felt that the area was safe and had a great time. Will be back! Bob & Carol P.S,. The biggest hotel elevator ever!

My wife and I stayed here last week while on vacation, and we had a wonderful time staying at the Capitol Hotel. We had never been to Arkansas and Little Rock before, and from the moment we checked in, we were impressed by the beautiful hotel and the friendly staff. Everything from the room, to the breakfast the following morning at the in-house restaurant, "One Eleven" was excellent. My wife and I only wish we had stayed longer!

I was in Little Rock for a business meeting. This is a great downtown location and their downtown seems to have been revitalized over the past few years. Beautiful hotel with nice restaurant and bar options. I ended up opting for a jog but they assured me I could use a really nice fitness center free of charge, which is only a block away.

We had a wonderful stay at the Capital Hotel. The hotel is beautiful; the rooms are lovely, comfortable and quiet; the Capital Bar and Grill had a great drink selection and good food; the breakfast at one eleven was excellent – everything was perfect! We will return.
