My husband and I spent one night at this bed and breakfast. The old Victorian house was fabulously restored. It has about six bedrooms that have their own private bath. The entire house and rooms have a lot of stuff in them that I guess adds to the charm of the place but I don't think I'd stay there again.... More

I surprised my wife with a getaway for our 25th wedding Anniversary at the Empress. From the moment we walked through the front door we were treated like family! The Inn is beautiful, the food is fabulous and the staff is outstanding. We split our 2-night stay in the mansion one night and a suite in the carriage house the... More

We stayed at the Empress overnight for a concert. What an amazing home! It is beautifully decorated and inviting in every corner. Our innkeeper, Deborah, was wonderful. She was welcoming and gave us a great tour of the home packed with colorful stories. We stayed in the Murray Suite - the bed was comfortable and love staying in part of... More

This beautiful old house was stunning. From the moment we walked in Debra was so sweet and helpful. She was also very knowledgeable about the history of the house as well as other places to visit in Little Rock. Everyone that stayed the night we were there was also attending the Dolly concert. When we go back to Little Rock... More

My husband and I enjoy staying in B&Bs. This one was extraordinary! A true Victorian style residence close to downtown. The history is such that it is listed in the Historical Buildings Register. Alena, the Innkeeper and chef, was very gracious and accommodating to our vegatarian-grainless diets. All dishes are homemade including sorbet, chocolates, whip cream. Breakfast was served in...

Enjoyed a lovely even mint her on my way to Nashville. This B&B was just 2-3 minutes of the freeway in a lovely section of Little Rock, just outside of downtown. A gorgeous old home, the innkeepers are happy to share it's history with you. The furnishings are lovely and period-appropriate. Didn't get to enjoy the homemade breakfast - had... More

We spent the night for some time away from the kids! The Empress was so relaxing and the breakfast was amazing. We opted for breakfast in our room and it was relaxing to be able to wake up slowly and not be rushed. We will return for another visit!!

I had to make a choice between this and a "standard" hotel, all of which seem pretty much the same to me. Staying at the Empress made the trip! All the folks are delightful, the house is extraordinary, bed super comfortable, fantastic breakfast, and the whole experience was unique and wonderful.So much care has gone into every aspect of this...

We can't think of a better place to have stayed for our four nights in Little Rock. The Empress is a beautiful, old Victorian home that has been lovingly and beautifully restored. We stayed in the Petit Jean room, and we found our accommodations to be spacious and comfortable. We slept well. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood,... More

This is a great place to stay. I had a very relaxing time here. I read a book in their hammock. The sheets on the bed are amazing. The best part of my stay was breakfast. The oatmeal pie and french toast were fantastic. Well worth the money.
