We were driving from southern Missouri to the Gulf shores of Alabama and my husband surprised me with a one night stay at The Empress of Little Rock. Overall, we had an exceptional stay. Parking was off street and very close to the B&B. The front porches provided for a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the peaceful neighborhood with our glass... More

My brother and sister-in-law surprised us with a stay in the Empress. What a magnificent house! Absolutely beautiful. We only stayed one night but thoroughly enjoyed it. The Empress has been meticulously restored down to the smallest detail including the furnishings. Breakfast was a wonderful treat though I wish there had been eggs included. My only negative was how bright... More

The house is beautiful and decorated correctly to the time period. Deborah the night inn keeper was very accommodating and gave me a full tour of the house as well as the history. The bed was super soft and comfy and very clean. The area was quite and never felt unsafe. I was the only guest and didn't realize the... More

We had a great stay in the James H. Hornibrook Suite! It's a beautiful building with a great history. It's been beautifully restored. The bed was amazing! Perfectly comfortable - great sheets - beautiful and romantic... Breakfast was delicious and it was served with great class! It was a lovely stay!

The Garden Room very highly recommended. Great for couples.This cute cottage style room is snug but has room for two in all the right places. The staff were helpful and friendly. The Empress' history is lovely and charming.

My husband and I stayed here on the Friday of the Memorial Day long weekend. We had an amazing time, the staff are so welcoming and lovely and the hotel itself is amazing. If you like history you will love staying in this perfectly restored mansion. The attention to detail in each room is spectacular. Highly recommend this place for... More

I booked this place as a sort of mini-moon for our wedding. We stayed in the Carriage House in the Majestic room and it was phenomenal. There was a tub big enough for about 4 people and it came with oils to help with relaxing. It also had a large steam shower. The bed was very comfortable. The only downside... More

Great hostess and wonderful accommodations. Exactly what we were hoping for. Breakfast was great, the house is beautiful, and spent a lovely evening drink in the garden before dinner. I would recommend this to anyone.

No elevator for rooms on 2nd floor and there are many steps. Claw foot tub in Washburn/Welch room is not for anyone with mobility issues. If you take a shower...its like taking one in a plastic bag. The rollaway bed for a third person is extremely lumpy and costs $50 per night. No roller suit cases for stairs. No mention... More

I am totally disappointed that these lovely sisters did not enjoy their stay, especially in light of the fact we spoke to them twice before they booked their reservation and they understood that their room was upstairs, even though we had another room available downstairs in the adjacent building. We also discussed the deep period Victorian tub and the sister... More
