“Great personalized service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

This was a very cool hotel. I went there for a conference and the conference organizers booked my room. Unfortunately there was a mix-up on the date and I arrived the day before my reservation and the hotel was booked solid. They went out of their way to get me set up in a hotel across the street. They even offered to pay for the hotel room at the other hotel. They also offered me a free room another night. I love the long history behind this hotel and the great location (there are so many places you can walk to). The lobby is beautiful and it really is a nice and relaxing place to stay!

This is a beautiful hotel. Our room was very clean and beds and linens were super comfortable. The Capital Bar was terrific and so was breakfast at Ashley's. The overall service was just excellent in every way. If you go to Little Rock, this is where you should stay!

The bar at the Capitol Hotel is hopping just about any weekday afternoon after 4 pm...and full of business-types (both sexes) making connections or just enjoying the remains of the day. Great bar food with accomplished bartenders and servers. If you're looking for sleek, modern and young--stay away. This bar is old school--stained mahogany and live combo music. If you're in Little Rock and staying downtown, don't pass on this one. Oh, and seriously quick valet parking.

This beautiful hotel has no defects. The room, including the bathroom, was immaculate. The service could not have been better. The Capital Bar was beautiful and staffed with people who know what they are doing. Ashley's restaurant was excellent. The food, the room, the presentation, the staff, everything about the restaurant was excellent. The restaurant chef spoke to us at length about their food and philosophy. I have nothing but superlatives to use regarding this fine hotel. Please: Keep up the good work!

This hotel is worth detouring for. Very high level of service for a very reasonable price. The basic rooms are large, with high ceilings, graciously proportioned and well appointed. The bathrooms are modest size, but very well supplied. Excellent toiletries, nice towels and plenty of them. All the standard stuff for luxury hotels, safes, robes, slippers, etc. Plus, a few extra thoughts like the charging station with a number of nibs to charge your cell phones, etc, all at the same time. I thought the bed was good and the linens excellent. Room service for breakfast arrived in 15 minutes as promised. The bar was comfortable and hopping with locals - good people watching.

All in all, this is one of the better hotels in the country.

The level of service at the Capital is truly exceptional. From being personally escorted to your room instead of waiting in a check-in line to being offered your choice of morning newspaper to be left at your door - you just feel special. The hotel is elegant without being pretentious - the service is seamless. The doormen and valets are lovely, the turndown service includes bottled water and generous servings of the most delicious toffee, and every inch of the place is immaculate. The decor is classic - beautiful. Our room was nice-sized and very comfortable.
The Grill is a great place for a specialty drink or dinner. The hotel is an easy walk to many restaurants and bars, an open market, the Children's Museum and the Clinton library.
Things you might want to know: Since it is a historic building, there is no pool or fitness facilities. I dug around on the website and found that guests can use a health club across the street free of charge. (Of course, I never got there!) There are no in-room coffee makers, but complimentary coffee is set out in the lobby every morning. This was my first visit to Little Rock and I would love to stay at the Capital again.

Upon your arrival you immediately know its going to be a wonderful stay. We were greeted at the door and taken immediately up to our wonderful spacious room. The lobby is absolutely lovely and the rooms are historically furnished with thoroughly modern bathroom facilities....including Molton Brown products. We had dinner downstairs at Ashley's which is 5 star all the way. The wine list is so extensive it took me 15 minutes to decide on a bottle. Start to finish the meal was excellent and the service could not have been better. We were just passing though Little Rock and had only 1 night stay. I will go back just to experience the hotel again!

Room Tip: The website is spot on both with pictures and description...no exaggeration there!
