Unbelievable decor. From the yard / garden to the common area to the room itself and the service, simply amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better trip, Bob / Sharon and Debbie were amazing, anything needed was taken care of.

Our stay at The Empress was as passers-through. My husband and I stayed in the Washburn-Welch Room for one night. This place is gorgeous, and full of history and stories! It is quiet and peaceful, and warm and welcoming. We didn't get the privilege of meeting Bob and Sharon, but the hostess Deborah was absolutely a joy! The Empress goes... More

The Majestic Spa Suite was very roomy and exceptionally clean. The decor was beautiful. We enjoyed using the massage and steam shower as well as the large jacuzzi tub. The breakfasts served were delightful! We enjoyed being served by the Inn hostess rather than the usual buffet style. Our hostesses answered any questions that we had about dining and sightseeing....

We enjoyed our two days at the Empress as we celebrated a combo birthday/anniversary. It was perfect! Lisa and other staff were very accommodative and the building is mind boggling in its history, restoration and comfort. Not your ordinary breakfast, either. What a way to start the day. We highly recommend The Empress of Little Rock as a wonderful alternative... More

The staff are amazing. Deborah and Lisa are very kind and efficient. I made our reservation over the telephone, and we were informed what time checkin was. We arrived and Lisa showed us around this beautiful house. I applaud the owners for all the detail they did, when they restored this house. You feel you are at home in an... More

My husband and I just spent our five year anniversary at this amazing mansion. Even though our room wasn't in the main mansion but rather a side house, we felt very much felt part of the house. Breakfast was amazing every morning spent with other guests of the house. Accommodations were very clean, even considering how many antiques and wood... More

It was the best experience we had in Little Rock. This place gave us more than just hospitality. The hostess was lovely with pure kindness and the place is a fine peace of historical museum. We stayed at the Petit Jean Suite and it was an amazing night that truly worth 7 stars. Beautiful garden and excellent parking in a... More

This was our second stay at The Empress. You could not ask for more professional or personable attention by the owners and staff. We stayed in the carriage house on both stays, however we received a full tour of the main house as well as full access. It is an amazing structure with tons of history. The neighborhood is unique...

We had an amazing stay at the Empress for our 11 year anniversary. The Hornibrook suite was absolutely gorgeous, complete with a jacuzzi claw-foot tub. The staff was more than accommodating and catered to our every need. The candlelit breakfast, champagne, and chocolates made for a very romantic weekend--so much so that we got engaged at the B&B! It was... More

The Empress bed and breakfast of Little Rock Arkansas was incredible. The service was fantastic and it is a great place to stay for couples. The breakfast daily was also fabulous. The food was great and the servers were dressed like Victorian times. We were even served with silver service. i would highly recommend this place to couples. We stayed... More
