We stayed here August 11th of this year. This is our four or fifth time to stay at the Capital Hotel. The recent upgrades to the hotel are indeed major upgrades! From the Frette bedding to the Frette towels and the Moulton Brown bathroom amenities. You will enjoy your stay here. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel's restaurant, Ashley's. It was great. I want to give a special "Thank You" to their concierge Billy. Who made our stay so much more enjoyable. Thank You Billy!!!

Amazing hotel! So beautiful with lots of character. I wish I was there with my husband instead of business. I will go back for a personal trip soon! Billy at the front was wonderful. The rooms are huge! Turn down service, people calling you by name right away, very professional but also feels like home. Just loved it!

Wonderful charm and service. Architecture alone here is worth the stay. It's better than your typical luxury chain like the Ritz. They stand out above because it's not just impeccable service, it's service comes with hospitality. The lounge bar is very nice and from speaking with locals, is the best in the area. But there are good sports bars, etc. walking distance. This hotel is across the street from the Peabody which too has a good reputation, but after staying at the Capital Hotel, realized the Peabody looked and felt like another convention hotel. The only downside for the Capital Hotel is no convenience store in hotel or close by without going to the Peabody's gift shop. Also, for that area in general, the hotels are pretty much the only place to grab breakfast. Our 1st day we were misguided in asking where we could get some convenience store items or some fast food. It wasn't until our last day of wandering around by foot in the opposite direction of the River Market, that we found a McD's, Subway, gas station, etc. Wish we had been pointed in that direction when we first asked. Lesson learned though...should have done a little more research. So bottom line, don't be mislead by booking travel with a chain brand hotel in Little Rock...stay here!!

Stayed one night on a business trip at The Capital in Little Rock and it was a true demonstration of fine southern hospitality. From the colonial grandeur of a recently refurbished hotel ( traditional) to the great food in the more casual dining area the great hospitality was a true measure of its deserved success.
The elevator is very large and harps back to a time when ladies wore big round ball gowns so their needs could be accommodated. The rooms are traditional in style with all mod cons and very large( must be those ball gowns again.
We ate late at night in the casual dining area and the food was wholesome and tasty- to top it all odd the had. Great array of single malts!
Breakfast was very traditional American with no shortage of food- the house speciality was a true peanut butter 'butter' but abstention prevented me from trying it.

Little Rock isn't the most accessible place in the world. But the Capital Hotel makes it worth the effort. Since it is an old hotel that was renovated and refurbished a few years ago, the rooms tend to be large. And the suites are very large. And the prices are shockingly reasonable. And the staff is extremely friendly and efficient. They will make the effort to take care of every need and any want. The bar is usually busy and serves great bar food. The restaurant, Ashleigh's, is excellent but a little formal for my tastes. And probably the one thing that most people leave talking about is the toffee on the pillow with the evening turn down service. I highly recommend.

Room Tip: The fitness center is nice, but it is not in the hotel. You have to walk across the street.

A very swanky hotel and a bit over priced. No vending machines 2 8oz. diet cokes over $10.00 then a tip. Must use Valet parking no other available. No pool or hot tub. Very firm beds. Staff was great!

I normally don't write reviews, but wanted to say I had a "once in a lifetime" experience this past weekend at The Capital Hotel. It is the most beautiful, clean, stunning hotel I have ever stayed in. The service in unmatched in every category & superb beyond description. The showers were the cleanest I have ever seen (looked like they were brand new), linens impeccable, beds were the most comfortable & luxurious I had ever slept on in life. Fresh flowers abound in this first class hotel & it is in a league of it's own. I could write for days about this magnificent hotel including how the bathroom has makeup/shaving lighted mirrors, beautiful soaps & lotions on gleaming silver trays and even a make-up towels for ladies. No small detail is overlooked. It was the best hotel experience I had ever had in life --top to bottom in every category. Stellar!

Lastly, The Capital in a fabulous location with restaurants and attractions within walking distance. The incredible staff are eager to assist, if needed. My highest recommendation for The Capital Hotel over any other hotel ever. I'll definitely return.

Room Tip: All rooms have to be excellent, based on mine and the pictures I've seen from others. Even thou...
