#1 of 66 hotels in Little Rock
Travelers' Choice
“…it is a capital enterprise located in a capital building…and I trust will prove a capital success…” These words, we lovingly refer to as the first Capital Idea, inspired the birth of a hotel that has remained Little Rock’s “front porch” for 140 years. Since the 1876 debut many other Capital Ideas have found their way into the hotel through numerous renovations and the most recent full restoration completed in 2007. The culmination is the uncompromising comfort and convenience of a modern luxury hotel without any compromise of its rare historic character. The inspiration for our customer service is our dedication to personal attention and care often found when visiting friends and family. Instead of rehearsed scenarios, guests are personally greeted, welcomed, and immersed in an approach to service we call Southern Comfortable. Not surprisingly, “Be Huggable” is regarded as the North Star of our core values.

This has to be the most elegant place in Little Rock, but it's not stuffy at all. The rooms are small (it's "Little" Rock after all), but not cramped. But if you feel cramped, just get on that elevator, where 8 people can socially distance with no problem! Walk over to the river (too bad that Marriott, formerly The Peabody, is in the way) and over to the market for a nice stroll.

My daughter and I visited recently for the Little Rock Marathon and decided to stay here. What a wonderful experience! The hotel is beautiful, the staff pleasant and the rooms comfortable and incredibly spacious (we stayed in a junior suite). The city is so walkable and this hotel is located right in the heart of it all!

Room Tip: I recommend the junior suite - feels more like home than a hotel room.

By far this was the most elegant place I've visited. My friends and I are always looking for a different place to eat. We were told to visit the Capital Hotel buy some visitors to the state. I have to say the food was excellent and the service was remarkable.

This is one of our go-to places. The rooms are comfortable and very well decorated. The hotel is located close to large venues for conserts and events. The bar in the lobby is fantastic and the resturant is out of this world.
