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 Capital Hotel in Little Rock Arkansas was a 5 Star experience all the way around. From the rooms, to the service, the dining, there has never been a comparable stay for us. If you ever make it to Little Rock, this is the place to stay.

Everything about our event and stay at the Capital Hotel was absolutely perfect. The most comfortable accommodations I have experienced in a very long time as well as extremely attentive staff. You all do everything right at your place, loved it! Thank you for making this trip a pleasant travel experience.

We love the Capital Hotel! The room and amenities were luxurious and the staff cannot be more accommodating. Chloe took care of our current and future reservations with great attention to detail and knowledge of all possible options. Aliyah greeted us and arranged our dining plans. They both made us feel special and welcomed. One Eleven and the Capital Grill have exceptional service and excellent menus and superb bar and wine services. Hospitality at the Capital Hotel is generous from curb to pillow. This is my favorite place to spend a special weekend.

I think we were given a free upgrade to a suite. The room was huge and reminded me of fancy hotel rooms in old Hollywood movies. Yet everything was up-to-date and impeccably clean. The bathroom facilities were modern and luxurious. Staff was friendly and accommodating. One of the nicest hotels I've ever been to. Highly recommend.

Go for the elevator, great food in both restaurants, spectacular, no perfect Moscow Mules in the bar and great and I mean great burgers...who knew. Rooms are traditional but what they should be, location doesn't get better downtown and the service is impeccable - another reason to appreciate LR.
