“Great Location, Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We spent two nights in a suite at this very nice hotel. The location is perfect for sightseeing and is just a short walk to the Clinton Library (a free shuttle is also available from across the street from the hotel).

Our room was spotless and nicely equipped. There are 4 suites in the hotel and all of them face the Clinton library. Our room was very quiet, although if you sit out on your little balcony it can be quite noisy from the adjacent highway. The heating/air system is totally controllable from the panel inside the unit. It's not the quietest in the world, but we slept fine with the fan noise.

The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Michael, the general manager, was always around and offered us some good tips on sightseeing. The folks in the restaurant (breakfast only) were really friendly and I had a simply delicious made to order omelet each day. They also offer made to order french toast and several other dishes as well as a buffet similar to that at Residence Inns.

Parking is in a parking structure behind the hotel and is $7.50 a day with unlimited in and out.

We were extremely happy with our stay here and will be our first choice when we return to Little Rock in the future.

Room Tip: The suites are well worth the extra cost. Suite 622 and 522 would probably be best for views of the...

Hotel was clean, quiet and located walking distance to the Clinton Presidential library. The only drawback was there were no bellhops. There is a very small, one car only, drop off spot at the front of the hotel, then cars must park in a garage which is a drive around the block. We arrived after a 12 hour day of driving from SAvannah Georgia with a car full of bags and assorted items and there was no bellhop to take our bags from the car so that the driver could park. It was very inconvenient. Luckily there were two of us so one could unload the car and check into the hotel while the other person parked the car. It was terribly inefficient, and if several parties had arrived to check in at the same time, it would have been a nightmare. This was very poor management for a hotel of any size.

Spent a Saturday night at this property in downtown Little Rock. As a general rule, I truly enjoy the Courtyard by Marriott brand, but the downtwon Little Rock property was disappointing. Our room was small, the air/heating unit was inconsistent, loud and required frequent adjustments inorder to keep a comfortable temperature. The TV was positioned so that watching from the bed was difficult. The property seemed dated, especially the bathroom.

We have stayed in other downtown properties and found them to be better in both quality and value. Expected more....will not return.

This hotel is not up to the Courtyard by Marriott standards, it needs a major renovation. The dingy carpet, the sofa, the thin sheets and the outdated loud air conditioning unit all need to be replaced. I expect a lot more from Marriott, will never stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay way from this hotel

Nice place, quiet and clean - good location, within walking distance of a number of restaurants. Some of the people I traveled with said the air conditioning was a bit loud but it didn't bother me. Breakfast buffet was good, but expensive. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. The view from my room wasn't much, but then again, I rarely have the time to sit and look out a window while traveling for work.

I stayed here for 3 days, 2 nights in April 2012. Location of the hotel was great - right in the heard of downtown Little Rock. Parking is around the back and really easy (once the doorman advised me how to get there!). Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Wifi was easy to get onto and had no problems with connections. My room was clean, spacious and the courtyard was nice. One thing I really liked was the local art in the lobby! There was some beautiful local art I would have loved to bring home! The Riverwalk was certainly busy and there was no shortage of great places to eat or simply walk around after dinner. Felt very safe and would likely go back. The only thing i would change is next time I would ask for a city view.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the city (if you prefer). Much prettier than a view of the highway!

Arrive here on a Friday night August 10, 2012, and the staff was quitely very rude. They didn't give us the discount as promised, then they gave us a lousy room, wall paper tearing off the walls, window view led to a loud a/c unit, we asked for 1 king size bed, but instead sent us to a 2 queen size bedroom as if we lived in the 1950's... Really!? There were old blood stains in the bathroom above the toilet paper roll, um hum, NASTY! The lady that check us in that night was rude, looking at us as if we don't fit in, I don't appreciate racial treatment... When we left in the morning, we were told we were suppose to have a parking ticket. We didn't not recieve that. That sweet lady gave us a frustrated look that we didn't take personally, we knew she didn't like it either.
For a hotel at this cost, on this side of town, need to get their staff straight!!
