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.

Flew into Little Rock to help son with Harding move in day. Hotel was beautiful. Ride for the airport was quick and easy. Staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Valet was perfect. Room service was impeccable.

Excellent stay for 5 days. The hotel staff is really nice and professional. The hotel cleanness is amazing. They pay attention to details. Same comment for the room. Two restaurant downstairs with a good quality food. I will definitely come back and it's my premium choice if I stay again in Little Rock.

I travel all over the US and this may well be in the top 5 of hotels Ive stayed in. Superb in every aspect: warm and thoughtful staff, beautiful and unique facility with lots of history and character (including one of the coolest elevators ever), lovely and comfortable rooms, excellent high speed wifi and a top flight restaurant. Been there twice and will always be my go to place in Little Rock from now on.

We stayed at the Capital Hotel for a wedding. We have traveled all over the world, stayed in many 5 star properties, and this rivaled any of them. Rooms are great, bars are great, the restaurants are excellent. But the staff was the best part. Everyone was so cordial, professional and efficient. We had never been to Little Rock before, we were pleasantly surprised with the city and the surrounding area (hike up Pinnacle Mt is a must do), and were saying that coming back for a weekend in the future wouldn't be out of the question.
