We spent 3 nights at the beautiful Empress of Little Rock and were delighted by our stay! The magnificent house is meticulously restored. Everything is period and beautifully done and maintained. The house is spotlessly clean. The rooms and the whole house, everywhere, are gorgeous. The bed is very comfortable, the furniture is beautiful, and all the bathrooms are updated....

What a beautiful and charming place. It's like spending the night back in 1890. I'm not much for lacy things, but it makes my wife happy. Watching her smile as she looks at the antique furnishings and being serve by Debra made us feel like we are back in history. The grounds, room, and living areas are unbelievably kept. Very...

Unexpected for me in several ways-- I arrived late from my flight, but had clear instructions as to how to get into the hotel and get to my room (night innkeeper.

If you haven't seen a fabulous example of Victorian architecture lately, than this is the place for you. The restoration of the 100+ year old structure was done impeccably and the details are amazing. The colors and décor are perfectly suited for the home. The breakfast was delicious and presented in an gracious old world way down to the lovely...
