The Empress was great! The facility was beautiful and quiet, and the employees were so friendly and accommodating! This made our stay in Little Rock fun and relaxing. Needless to say, we can't wait to go back!! From the great breakfast to the many other complimentary details, we could not have asked for more for our romantic little getaway (:

Really nice place! I and my girlfriend had great nights there. Beautiful, quiet, all the details are impressive. It just like our own house, or castle actually. What's more the breakfast is also fantastic.

Amazing facility and stay. Every room was detailed and amazing. They even upgraded us to one of the nicest suites we have ever stayed in. Appreciate their attention to details on everything down to the perfect breakfast. Staying over on a Sunday basically had the place to ourselves so could relax on the porch and go in and out without... More

Exquisite Victorian house with 5 star breakfast, service and amenities. A very impressive restoration of the house and lovely antiques everywhere. Our room (Petite jean) was spacious with comfy bed. Loved the complimentary amaretto and the luxurious bath robe. We appreciated the coffee bar upstairs so that as early risers we could have coffee prior to breakfast. We also took... More

I have stayed at the Empress several times in my cross country travels and it has never disappointed. It was very comforting to stay there as a single female, and great returning as part of a couple. On one stop, we even had the whole house to ourselves! I love the breakfasts by candlelight - last time they served warm... More

Sometimes you can pinpoint the exact moment that a good day turns into a great one. For my Love and I, it was the moment we checked into the Empress. Lisa showed us to our room (The Majestic) and walked us through the instructions for the excellent bath amenities. I do suggest that you be sure you have a firm... More

The Empress of Little Rock was the most beautiful, awe-inspiring place I have ever stayed at. Over the course of my lifetime, I have stayed at several 5-star hotels, but they pale in comparison. It was the first place I have ever stayed at that felt alive to me—like it wanted to interact with us. On our bedside table were... More

Lisa, et al, the Empress of Little Rock Grand High Tea last week was incredible. My friends and I had the best time and you were the perfect hostess, cook, server and tour guide. The beautiful table and place settings, dining room and home were inviting, wonderfully restored and memorable to each of us. When you served our plates, each... More

My husband and I stayed at The Empress for our 5th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time! We had champagne and chocolate in our room upon arrival. Bob, Sharon, and Deborah are genuinely so kind and hospitable. They really made our time there feel special.

I reviewed this place on Bed abd Breakfast.com and I should have read the other reviews first but more importantly the responses of the inn..Apparently they are perfect because of all the positive revies in their past and anyone who is un-happy either does not listen to them or is lying because everyone else loves the place, WOW!!

I usually like to take a couple days to think about a response, especially to such an all encompassing and caustic review, which even takes issue with how we have tried to respond to past reviews. When you're clearly not a fit for a guest, however, it's best to move on. I prefer to be gracious and wish them the... More
