“A little New Orleans in Little Rock!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel on our way across Arkansas. The decor inside and out is reminiscent of New Orleans at its best. The rooms are extremely comfortable and clean, the beds are heaven, and the breakfast is one of the best we've enjoyed in a hotel. Brenda offered friendly and thoughtful service at the breakfast buffet, which was hot with a wide range of choices. Be sure to have dinner at the Vesuvio Restaurant. Not a typical hotel restaurant by far, the food is excellent and Wallie is a great waiter. We felt like we had found a little vacation spot in the heart of Little Rock! Hated having to leave so soon, we will be back!

We are usually a couple that stay at 3 Star hotels but for last night of our vacation driving from North Carolina to Denver and back we decided to try this 4 star Hotel. WOW... so impressed with everything, from the suite to the wonderful breakfast. Room was very clean, spacious and filled with luxury fittings.

Room Tip: Very friendly Staff, and Brenda made us feel very welcome for breakfast and well fed for our long tr...

I have stayed at this hotel three separate times and I love it. It's small and the rooms are wonderful. I love the water feature/fire pit out by the pool. The breakfast is great as well. Brenda had some scrambled eggs with spinach that started my day off right!

Dear Readers,
I follow Trip Advisor as my guide to rest, food and recreation! As I planned a trip to Little Rock, Ark I saw this place "Best Western Governors Suites" listed and reviews good! So I tried it! Well now I am back again and will be here from now on when in L.R.! This is a hidden gem in this city! There are no negatives, only positives. From the morning breakfast with Brenda serving your every need, with real food, to the pool and the plush chairs and waterfall sitting area, the Governors Suite is a must stay! Location is awesome! You will thank me after staying here! All the staff are first class real people with your care in mine! Sincerely, Rick Strack

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms over the pool area, but there are no bad rooms!

I stay at the Governors Suites every month when doing business here at in Little Rock. The rooms are top notch and when Brenda puts out the breakfast buffet ih the morning I know it is alwasys fresh and delicious. I have been staying here for almost ten years and it feels like coming home every time I enter the building, such a beautiful small hotel with a staff that always remembers my name. I cannot say enough good words about this place!
