“Pets allowed but.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Reservation experience:
We needed a pet friendly place to stay for one night. I prefer to make reservations directly with the hotel since I've had experience where the main reservation number is not knowledgeable about how pet friendly a hotel is (service animals only for instance). I called the hotel but got routed to a general reservation number. It was very annoying listening to advertisements and then finally a person got on the line. The agent had a thick accent and it was difficult for me to understand him. He wanted too much information from me (do I have an account, do I want an account, do I etc.etc.) before letting me know if the hotel I wanted had a pet friendly room available. Then he needed my email and my credit card and...all with such a thick accent I was struggling to understand. I asked if he could just put a hold on the room, we would be arriving there in an hour. No he could not. I ended the call, frustrated that it was so difficult to communicate with him. Other brand hotels allow me to speak with the actual hotel and make the reservation with the hotel clerk.

Hotel experience:
The lobby was busy upon arrival but the one woman working the front desk was friendly and efficiently handled the check in line. There was a $50+ added fee for pets. Parking is in a parking structure above and below ground. Hotel access is via the main lobby or the underground parking elevator. The room was standard nice with comfortable beds. No mini fridge or microwave? Full bathroom. We were on the 3rd floor. To walk the dogs we tried using the stairs but found the set up odd and resorted to the elevator and main lobby exit. The only grassy area is along a sidewalk on the side and back of the hotel in a not safe area. We had a scary experience with a couple of the locals, this is not a good place to be outside. Fortunately there are plenty of businesses that deliver food to the hotel room and the lobby bar has bottled alcohol to take to the room too.

The hotel seemed very nice, a nice place to stay if not traveling with pets.

Stayed for two nights while in town. Enjoyed complimentary appetizers while Sam served me drinks during happy hour in the lobby bar! The hotel shuttle dropped us of at the river market for dinner and some enjoyment at the piano bar, and of course picked us back up. Great breakfast in the morning and great overall staff. I will stay here again if/when I come back to town!

We had the pleasure of staying there for two days. The breakfast was very good as usual with Comfort Suites and the front desk was extremely helpful. I would like to mention Linda, who was especially helpful. She made our stay very pleasant and I would recommend staying at this hotel.

We started staying at this property over a year and a half ago because we had babies in the Arkansas Children's Hospital. Our room has always been immaculate, the staff bends over backwards to facilitate our needs and the location is handy to both the hospital and great downtown dining and shopping, When we have to go to centreal Arkansas for the hospital, for business or pleasure, this is the only place we will utilize

Room Tip: "Corner suites are large and sunny"

I have stayed here multiple times and always find it to be a pleasant place to stay. The rooms are always clean and nice and quiet. The staff is friendly and efficient. And the breakfast is well above average for a hotel. I shall return.

Room Tip: no problem with any rooms

The hotel is right next to the expressway. Stayed for the Little Rock Marathon. Hotel shuttle to the starting area but the expo, start and finish lines were only 0.5 miles. The race course passes within 2 blocks of the hotel( in case you over dress).The hotel will only do 15 late check outs. Wish I would have known. Arrived 2 hours before check in and rooms not ready.Checked in 4 hours later. No late check outs available. If all you require is a nice clean and comfortable room at a reasonable price this is the place.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during the LR Marathon.
Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! I apologize for the limited number of late check-outs for the morning of the Marathon. This isn't something that we typically do, however we had a large group checking-in that morning and had to turn the room around as quick as possible.

We hope to see you next year!

Stayed here for a soccer tourney. Nice size room, we had 2 queens with a sleeper sofa--had to put several extra comforters and blankets to give it some padding. Breakfast had hot foods-waffles, biscuits and gravy, the usual fake eggs, etc. Lots of seating and tables; which is nice when there are lots of teams and everyone seemed to eat at the same time. Very very small bar-i think there were 5 stools--long line to wait for a drink with only the 1 bar tender. Be nice if they made their bar area larger and maybe more people would just stay there. We went down town to the River Market and ate at Gusano's Pizzeria. River Market area is really nice-plenty of parking or u can ride the trolley around.

Only con is that out of two elevators, one was out-of-service most of the weekend, so exceptionally long waiting periods. Normally the stairs would be fine but if your on one of the top floors, then that's a work out. But the biggest problem is you can't take the stairs down to the lobby.

Room Tip: May want a lower level in case the elevator is OTS, and you have to take the stairs.

Thank you for your review.

Im sorry that one of our elevators was down during your stay, with a full house that can make wait times pretty long. The elevator has been repair and have had no further issues.

Thank you for the suggestion of adding bar seats. We are looking into that now and should be an easy change to make.

Im glad to see your overall stay was positive and hope to see you in he near future!
