“OK, but I won't return”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Stayed here two nights on business. I'm a loyal Priority Club member, so I thought I would give this place a try, even though my meetings were across the river in North Little Rock. The location is not great - not really near anything, including dining or shopping. It is right on the freeway, but I didn't notice any noise.

Everything was clean, though it is an older, dated hotel. One nice thing - no charge for parking. Don't try to take an SUV into the garage, I'm pretty sure my rental would have scraped the ceiling. I didn't eat any meals here, so can't comment on the restaurant.

If you really want to collect or use points here, give it a try, but don't expect anything outstanding.

The lobby is an outstanding display of presidential memoriablia. I felt as is if I was in Washington, D.C. The man at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely. The stay was nice. The only disappoinent was the pool was a bit dirty.

but everything else was so-so. The only room they had for us was a disability suite not what we booked, but whatever. There were no towel racks by the sink which is awkward when you are doing sink type activities. There were no towel racks in the commode, shower area-unless the thought was to use the handicap bars for towel bars. Then the towels hang over the toilet. Yuck. There were no hooks for robes in the bathroom. But there was a sign reminding us to flush frequently, I guess they think we might forget. Our room while not on the freeway side, a plus, looked right out onto the hotel ac units. Breakfast in the restaurant was ok.

We were picked up by the hotel van at the airport. We did not have to wait as our driver knew when our flight was arriving, he was friendly, the van was cool and ride to the hotel was not long as we were entertained by his Little Rock Trivia and local news. He is a real treat and I wish I could remember his name.
The front desk staff had our keys out in no time and were able to offer rides to various area attractions. Two of our group were given a ride to an off-property restaurant (which had great seafood) and were picked up later in the evening. Service is very important to the employees in the Little Rock Presidential and it shows.
Their lobby has an interesting collection of Presidential items and lots of guest seating.
The rooms are a nice size, internet is fast and the bed was so comfortable with plenty of pillows.
This hotel is very clean, quiet and the staff is exceptional. I left some personal items in my room when I checked out and when I called the next day the staff were already aware I left some things and Matt the Manager had them shipped to me that afternoon. I will be back again. And soon.

Room Tip: I like light in the morning so I chose an east facing room. Perfect sunrise opportunity.

Stayed here on a bus tour and everything was fine. Wasn't expecting much, but was surprised. Room was large (even if the bathroom was small). Lots of clean linen. Can't say much about the location (other than close to the River Walk) because we were off & on the bus at all times. Didn't have the opportunity to walk around the area. Seemed safe enough, though. Our breakfast was included in our bus tour, and it was very good--lots of fresh fruit and a variety of hot items. Room was quiet but air conditioner was noisy. Slow elevator service one morning so I walked down 6 flights. Would consider staying here again on a personal trip to Little Rock.

This hotel is very convenient to downtown attractions. We visited the Clinton Presidential Library while we were in Little Rock, and it is a short drive from the hotel. The hotel offers a shuttle but we chose to drive so we could also visit the Statehouse. The rooms are nice and modern, and we enjoyed browsing the presidential memorabilia throughout the hotel. The problem I had with this hotel is the laundry availability. There is only one washer and dryer for the entire hotel!! That makes for a long evening of doing laundry. Also, the hotel restaurant is just average, nothing special. We would definitely stay here again for the convenience and the price.

There is no smoking in the rooms but there is a wonderful courtyard with excellent landscaping and a fire pit where you will be comfortable at any time, even at 4am, with a cozy fire and excellent seating.

Rooms are clean, service is great, location is ideal, price is high.
